Teresa July has led a hard life, but now she has a chance to put her train robbing past behind her. Armed with a new job as a cook to one of Philadelphia's elite families, Teresa is determined to start her life anew, and nothing--not even her boss's stuck-up (and far too handsome) son--is going to stand in her way.
Madison Nance is sick of his mother taking in women from the wrong side of the tracks, just to see them turn on her generosity. That's why it's up to him to keep a close eye on Teresa's every move. At least, that's the only logical explanation for why he can't get the young woman out of his mind.
But when a woman from Madison's past threatens Teresa's future, the two reluctant lovers must join forces is they're ever going to have a chance at happiness.

A bustling city in another century
Another vivid young woman animates Wild Sweet Love, the latest historical offering from the beloved and much celebrated Beverly Jenkins. Notorious train robber Teresa July was captured and spent three years in prison for the crimes she committed with her outlaw gang of brothers, Black Seminoles who live in the wilds of 1890s Texas. Now Teresa has been released on parole to the care of Philadelphia matron Molly Nance, who means to transform the intelligent and spiritedbut Western-roughgirl into a lady. Teresa isn't all that sure she wants to be a lady, but she does know she's finished with the outlaw life. She's also intrigued by Molly's polished son, Madison Nance, a banker who is involved in the growing political battle between people of color in the radical and conservative movements. This is a highly satisfying romance told against a fascinating and little-used backdrop.
