Louisiana, 1815, Therese Bondurant trusted her parents to provide for her and her young half-sister, though they never wed due to laws against mixed-race marriage. But when both die of a fever, Therese learns her only inheritance is debt and her father's promise that somewhere on his plantation lies a buried treasure. To save her own life as well as that of her sister she'll need to find it before her white cousins take possession of the land. British officer Henry Farlow, dazed from a wound received in battle outside New Orleans, stumbles onto Therese's property out of necessity. But he stays because he's become captivated by her intelligence and beauty. It's thanks to Therese's tender care that he regains his strength just in time to fend off her cousin, inadvertently killing the would-be rapist in the process.Though he risks being labeled a deserter, it's much more than a sense of duty that compels Henry to see the sisters to safety--far away from the scene of the crime. And Therese realizes she has come to rely on Henry for so much more than protection. On their journey to freedom in England, they must navigate a territory that's just as foreign to them both--love.
