Review: Breathless (Old West 2) by Beverly Jenkins #AARomance

The Blurb
A strong-willed beauty finds herself in the arms of the handsome drifter from her past, in this second book in the sizzling series set in the Old West, from USA Today Bestselling Author Beverly Jenkins

As manager of one of the finest hotels in Arizona Territory, Portia Carmichael has respect and stability—qualities sorely missing from her harsh childhood. She refuses to jeopardize that by hitching herself to the wrong man. Suitors are plentiful, but none of them has ever looked quite as tempting as the family friend who just rode into town…and none has looked at her with such intensity and heat.

Duchess. That’s the nickname Kent Randolph gave Portia when she was a young girl. Now she’s a stunning, intelligent woman—and Kent has learned his share of hard lessons. After drifting through the West, he’s learned the value of a place to settle down, and in Portia’s arms he’s found that and more. But convincing her to trust him with her heart, not just her passion, will be the greatest challenge he’s known—and one he intends to win…

My Review
Oh my goodness, this was a fan yourself kind of story. As Ms. Jenkin’s books tend to be, it was steeped in history, this time about women’s suffrage so learning took place while I became enamored with Portia and Kent. They were spectacular, each possessed a strength of will and an ability to bend and grow. The heat between them sparked immediately, but there was a slow build to the blaze. A perfect romance between two remarkable characters.

I give this book five out of five horse shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased my copy from Amazon.


  1. Sounds like a lovely read with a strong female lead. Adding to my Amazon Wishlist.

    1. You always entertain me with that Wishlist. It must be miles long by now.

  2. I had to laugh at your "fan yourself kind of story"! Great way to sum up the romance you enjoyed.


I love reading your comments.
