Kent Randolph is just the kind of man to bring all of that out in her. He is kind and gentle. He teases her a lot. He draws her out her wild side. I enjoyed the flirting and constant coaxing to get her to experience passion and true love.
Kent had a hard life as well. There are some experiences from his youth that follow him around. He is loyal and hardworking. He just wants a fresh start and when he learns that his friend Rhine can help him, he takes full advantage of this.
It has been years since Kent seen little Portia but she is all grown up. He can appreciate her beauty and brains. He keeps his distance out of respect for Rhine but he can’t fight the attraction. He handles the situation with class.
Beverly Jenkins delivers the perfect blend of chemistry and heat between Portia and Kent. The build-up is a slow burn that is enjoyable. My only complaint is that there was no angst or drama. Everything works so well and is so predictable.
It is nice to see what happened with Eddy and Rhine. They are still lovable and cute. They’ve built a nice life for Portia and Regan. There are some side romances that add to the story.
I loved Regan. She is such a sassy pistol. She needs a man who can appreciate all that she brings and stoke her fire. I hope her situation works out and I look forward to closing out the trilogy with her story.
If you are looking for a sweet, well-written historical romance, then Breathless is the perfect book for you.
