Overview

No Man Could Tame Her

Jessi Rose Clayton would do anything to keep the family ranch from falling into the wrong hands-even agree to take on a rough-and-tumble outlaw as her protector. With his rugged, handsome face and muscular bronze body, Griffin Blake can draw a sigh from a lady's lips almost as fast as his strong, sculpted arm can draw a gun from its holster. But Jessi Rose has no intentions of falling for his charms. No, her relationship with him is strictly business.

Until He Came Along

Robbing the railroad is Griffin Blake's game, but he has no choice. Either he agrees to help Jessi Rose or he gets sent back to jail-so he arrives at the ranch ready to help the ornery female protect her land. But underneath Jessi's all-business exterior is a femininity she's kept hidden for far too long-making Griffin think it might be time to tame this wild Texas rose.

this book was wonderful. All of Beverly Jenkins books are not only educational on african american history, but it reflects on heart and joy two people can have despite the pain they have to suffer. Great read love all her books.

This was a great story. But honestly nothing I can tell you will prepare you for the depth to which these novels will affect you. You must read them to fully understand. I loved Jessi and Griff. Although, Griff was younger than Jessi, (only by seven years) he had lived a thousand lives. He was a real, FINE man with enough maturity and heart to shower Jessi with all the love she'd ever need. I also enjoyed catching up with Dix Wildhorse from 'Topaz' and meeting Preacher and the 'Terrible Twins' Two Shafts and Neil July. They had me LOL with their special brand of justice. Beverly Jenkins is awesome, much respect!

I couldn't put this book down. The plot was wonderful and the sex scenes were the bomb. If I could only find more of her books. Mrs. Jenkins showed true romantic writing in this book.

With every book that I read I find myself loving author Beverly Jenkins. She has a way of combining a sweeping romance with a great history lesson. Taming Jesse Rose was another example of her amazing talent. Thank you Mrs. Jenkins!

Mrs. Jenkins is in rare form as always with yet another best seller. I have all of her novels and love the weaving of romance and my black history together. I would suggest any of her books. They are all wonderful.

I have been trying to figure out the title of this book and the author's name since I was in my late teens. Before I hit twenty. I read this book because I thought it was refreshing to see a nice black man and black woman in a western frontier setting. However imagine my asstonishment when I read this book and absolutely loved it with my whole heart. I can count on one hand how many books I would buy twice and this is one of them. It was one of the most passionate and loving and emotion filled books I have ever read. It's like the character development was great. I had nothing to complain when reading this book and I usually do but it's one of my favs.

I enjoyed the book immensely. I connected to Jessi Rose's fiery spirit and could understand why our heroe was smitten by her.I learn a great deal of forgotten history in Beverly Jenkin's novels, this was no exception.A pet peeve was that the characters on the cover did in NO WAY match the author's physical description!!!!!

Loved this book. Jessi Rose stood up for beliefs at a time that was hard for any man to do it let alone a woman. Love Beverly Jenkins books because I receive an education as well.
