Ms Bev was the guest speaker at the Hearts Through History RWA online chapter Annual General Meeting. She spoke to use about her research process.

I even asked her about her writing of these books for teens. She said it was difficult to keep it a sweet/clean romance!

I love the little historical notes throughout, which alert me to things I need to learn more about. Beverly Jenkins‘ work is always a joy and a pleasure to read.

Not necessarily sadness but happiness for the main characters.
