She started going out with Gerald, her husband, in high school. The pair officially tied the knot in 1972. Jackson still had a day job when she decided to take up writing. She loved romance novels and she would often turn to the genre whenever she wanted to release stress.

Jackson’s desire to write fiction was primarily driven by the disappointment she felt over the lack of cultural and ethnic representation in the romance genre. She kept complaining about the issue until her husband enrolled her in a romance writers conference.

From what Gerald could see, his wife was convinced that she could do better. So he encouraged her to attend the writer’s conference with the hope that it would give her the tools she needed to put her boasts to the test.

Gerald was not disappointed. The conference introduced Brenda Jackson to iconic writers like Rochelle Alers who, in turn, inspired her to follow her publishing dreams. Jackson took the leap and wrote her first novel, which came out in 1995 (Tonight and Forever). She kept honing her skills by writing and publishing novels in the romance genre. IN the process, she made a name for herself as a proficient author that wrote novels designed to inspire African American readers.

Jackson was determined to show the public that black men could be strong yet caring and supportive towards their families. She also wanted to show that black love was a real concept and that African-American couples could generate the same heat that was often seen in their caucasian peers in romance fiction.

Jackson paved the way for the many African-American romance writers that came after her, going so far as to become the first black author to write for the Harlequin/Silhouette Desire Line. She also made waves when she dominated the USA Today and New York Times Bestseller lists, becoming the first black romance author to accomplish the feat.

Jackson has always hated the segregation she sees in bookstores. She abhors African-American sections in libraries and bookstores because she doesn’t understand why African-American romance novels cannot be mixed in with the romance novels written by caucasian authors.

She believes that certain sections of society refuse to read romance fiction that features characters that do not look like them. But she is convinced that the majority of her readers do not hold that perspective. She has found that the average reader cannot fail to appreciate her novels so long as they are beautifully written.

But their vacation on the beautiful Caribbean Island was coming to an end. Dominic had gone into the arrangement certain that he did not want to marry again. However, saying goodbye was proving to be more difficult than either of them expected.

Delaney’s Desert Sheikh: Delaney was less than amused by the mix-up that had ruined the vacation she sorely desired. She had no choice but to share a cabin with an arrogant Sheikh. For his part, the Sheikh was determined to seduce, romance, and then leave Delaney. But he got far more than he bargained for.
