Destiny's Embrace

1, Destiny Trilogy

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Award-winning romance author Beverly Jenkins offers up another high-stakes historical romance that is sure to make you swoon.

With Destiny’s Embrace, Jenkins brings readers back to the American West, where Logan Yates, a self-important ranch owner, must confront his feelings for his beautiful, free spirited housekeeper, Mariah Cooper. While they bicker incessantly, their sexual tension is palpable, and only rises when Mariah's former lover arrives on the scene. Will she accept Logan's heart?

Set in 19th-century California, Destiny's Embrace features unforgettable characters and a satisfying mix of adventure and passion from nation's premier writer of African-American historical romance.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 10, 2012 – In this romantic series launch, Jenkins (Night Hawk) creates a gently idealized 1880s California where race and class are less important than love and friendship. Mariah Cooper of Philadelphia grew up in a loveless home, raised by an angry single mother. Logan Yates had the opposite experience: he s the son of a black rancher, raised by his Spanish-elite stepmother alongside his two half-brothers, surrounded by love. When Mariah comes all the way to California to become his housekeeper, Logan is certain the city girl will turn tail. Instead, Mariah discovers her temper and her spine, and the sparks that fly between them change from a battle of wills to a flare of passion. Mariah s growth makes her a delightful heroine, and Logan s loving relationships with his family keep him from being just another alpha male. Jenkins s greatest success is in drawing a world where the main characters embrace egalitarianism and extend their family relationships generously beyond the ties of blood.

Customer Reviews

Love works!

Hello All.. If your looking for a great story that intertwined history, struggles, and romance from rags to riches kinda story, this is it. I truly adored this story. It was a true pleasure getting to know the main characters. The plot was quickly revealed and the unfolding of the story clear. However, I would have enjoyed learning more about Mirah's history and having her share those experience more in depth with her guy. This would have given the relationship a stronger sense of emotion. In short, I enjoyed the read.

I Am A Die Hard Fan

I have read all of Mrs. Jenkins books from night song to the edge of dawn, to dangerously sexy to bring on the blessings but my first book by beverly was topaz. It was a gift for my birthday that matched my November birthstone topaz. It was the best book I've read until now. Destiny's Embrace was a beautiful love story. I felt the passion and often found my self wanting to cry with Mariah. Mrs Jenkins you've done it again!!!!!!

Not her best...

The plot is interesting unfortunately the actually story is too rushed. Some parts were to predictable,found myself skipping pages and the characters lacked flair.
