Desperate to escape her dire situation in war-ravaged England, Nell Graves agrees to sign four years of her life away for an indenture in the colony of Maryland. Once she has served her time, she will have a chance at something few get, a completely fresh start. Unfortunately, the troubles in England haven’t left Maryland unscarred, and in a province where men outnumber women six to one, keeping her head down doesn’t seem to be a likely option.
Matters only grow worse when she finds herself drawn to perhaps the worst man in the province for her—very wealthy, very Catholic James Atwood. Caught in the middle of a possible revolt, untrustworthy men, and her own traitorous emotions, Nell has to worry her last refuge might be more dangerous than the civil war she left behind.
