THE FIRST BOOK IN THE JAMES SAGA
Falling in love with a slave – can it ever work?
Lawrence James is immediately drawn to Jasmine Thomas. She’s attractive, opinionated and kind. But she’s a slave – a definitive non-starter as a son of a plantation owner in South Carolina in 1860. Yet, Lawrence cannot help himself and as he spends more time with her, his feelings continue to grow.
However, there are other problems for Lawrence. He has been groomed to take over the Havers End plantation, but Lawrence has a deep uneasiness about becoming a slave owner. His position is not helped by his volatile relationship with his father, Edward and what the consequences will be if Edward finds out about his relationship with Jasmine.
There are also concerns over his eldest sister, Belvedere Rossiter, and her growing friendship with a rebellious slave, Donald Archer. While Lawrence loathes Donald, Belvedere has an opposing view.
Lawrence’s biggest dilemma is – does he choose to be the dutiful son or risk everything to be with Jasmine?
