In national bestselling author Beverly Jenkins’ Destiny series, the Yates men play hard and live hard. And when they find that special woman, they fall hard . . .

Noah Yates fully believes in the joys of a happy family and a good wife. But that’s not the life for him. No, he would much rather sail the wild seas in search of adventure, not tied down. But then the unthinkable happens . . . he finds himself literally tied down. To a bed. By a woman.

And Pilar isn’t just an ordinary woman. She’s descended from pirates. And after giving him one of the worst nights of his life, she steals his ship! Now Noah is on the hunt, and he’ll stop at nothing to find this extraordinary woman . . . and make her his.

My Thoughts

This is the third book in the Destiny’s series and chronicles youngest brother Noah Yates’ journey in life and love.  Out of this series I REALLY enjoyed the second book, and though this one was interesting, I didn’t find it as engaging as the second book.

Noah is a tortured young man who doesn’t know how to let people get close to him after his horrific experience as a young sailor.  But when his boat is stolen from him by a lady pirate and her comrades, he vows to find her and retrieve his ship.  When he runs into her as herself and not in disguise, he is so intrigued by her that he offers her marriage and with Pilar finding herself in a bind, she agrees.

I love that they both had to feel out and test the boundaries of their relationship, and they both had to learn to love and trust on a level that both are uncomfortable with considering their past experiences.  The love story was touching but a bit on the ‘everything is coming together so perfect corny side’.  But overall I thought it was entertaining and if you’re a fan of African American historical romance, you should find enjoyment in this story.

  1. I never heard of Beverly Jenkins until you introduced me to her. She is still on my TBR list. You should join the Diverstity on the Shelf Reading Challenge. This book would be perfect! I just love the cover.

    I’ve been a fan of her historicals for forever. I’d been trying to get my Mom to giver her a try and she kept blowing me off. Finally she picked up one of her books (not knowing this was the lady I kept telling her about), and now she has read my whole BJ collection. She writes nice contemporaries too.

    I was introduced to Beverly Jenkins’ historical romances about two years ago and have been hooked ever since. My favorite is probably Indigo. I agree with you, the second one in this series was definitely my favorite.

      I found Beverly a few years ago after reading Jude Deveraux historicals and wondering if there were any African American historical novels. I think she is the best at these books! And Indigo has been one of my favorites too. I pretty much adore all of her books though, historical or contemporary. Thanks for stopping by!
