A proud and spirited woman whose life was stolen from her. . . A man of secrets accused of a terrible crime. . . In a place of new beginnings their destinies are joined--in a gloriously romantic new work from the incomparable storyteller.
The fiery and outspoken adopted daughter of one of England's most formidable women, Shemaine O'Hearn has made powerful enemies. And now her adversaries have found a way to remove the hot-blooded beauty from her life of privilege: by falsely convicting Shemaine of thievery and sending her in shackles to America, where she is to be sold in indentured servitude to the highest bidder.
