One accidental crime changed my life forever. Horribly and tragically. But that was just the beginning of my bad fortune. Every time I swore things couldn’t possibly get worse, they did. Here I was, preparing to face one of the region’s most terrifying enemies with a single tribeswoman as my witness if I failed. A woman who’d hated me from the moment I’d joined the Croatoans because of the English blood running through my veins. The only common ground we shared was our plan to sacrifice ourselves so everyone we loved could finally be free. WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD! A rare beauty, Agnes Wood is forced from her country parish to the social whirl of London when her aunt and uncle negotiate her betrothal to an older nobleman to satisfy her uncle's gaming debts. While attempting to make the most of a bad situation, she accidentally commits a crime that will lead her to the other side of the world and into the crosshairs of a far more dangerous game. The layers of a terrifying conspiracy unfold, and two powerful men fight over her heart in the winner-take-all rugged wilderness of the New World. For centuries to come, they would be called the LOST COLONISTS OF ROANOKE ISLAND.
