Escaping to the New World is her only option…Rescuing her will wrap the chains of the Inquisition around his neck.
Marisol Valentin flees Spain after murdering the nobleman who molested her. She ends up for sale on the indentured servants’ block at Charles Town harbor—dirty, angry, and with child. Her hopes are shattered, but she must find a refuge for herself and the child she carries. Can this new land offer her the grace, love, and security she craves? Or must she escape again to her only living relative in Cartagena?
Captain Ethan Becket, once a Charles Town minister, now sails the seas as a privateer, grieving his deceased wife. But when he takes captive a ship full of indentured servants, he’s intrigued by the woman whose manners seem much more refined than the average Spanish serving girl. Perfect to become governess for his young son. But when he sets out on a quest to find his captured sister, said to be in Cartagena, little does he expect his new Spanish governess to stow away on his ship with her six-month-old son. Yet her offer of help to free his sister is too tempting to pass up. And her beauty, both inside and out, is too attractive for his heart to protect itself against—until he learns she is a wanted murderess.
As their paths intertwine on a journey filled with danger, intrigue, and romance, only love and the grace of God can overcome the past and ignite a new beginning for Marisol and Ethan.
I thoroughly enjoyed this read. It hits the ground running for life, literally! Take that and then add miscreants, slavery, privateers, and lots of adventure on the ocean, and I’m sold!
I enjoyed Marisol’s story. Her love and devotion to a child born out of violence. I loved that she could see beyond the horrid experience and cherish life.
Enter the hero, Ethan! An English privateer with a grudge against G-d for his wife and child dying during childbirth.
Never fear. There’s plenty of swordplays, dancing horses, kidnapping, murder, and restoration to please just about anyone!

This is not your typical love, time travel, try to stay awake story. Michelle expertly crafts each scene so that the reader feels they are standing right there in the living room, feeling the warmth from the fireplace. The dialogue fits each character perfectly giving the sense that you are listening instead of reading. Her characters are so lifelike and believable you will end up feeling as if you have known them all of your life. Time travel is a little far fetched I’ll admit but I am a believer now and you would be to if you read this wonderful enchanting tale. How this author brought this all together is beyond me. At no point in this book was I able to even come close to guessing the outcome. And when it arrived and made perfect sense, I was blown away.
