From 1683 to 1803 ~
From the corrupt courts of Versailles to the windswept tracks of Montreal;
From the sea-washed coasts of Nova Scotia to the searing deserts of Algiers;
And from the lush marshes of Louisiana
The proud, aristocratic du Plessis lived, loved, and fought to reclaim what was theirs.
~Damien, who claimed the unattainable Minette as his wife and took a nun as his mistress
~ Natalie, who escaped the horrors of Paris’s La Salpétrière prison to flee to the colony of New Orleans as a proxy bride
~ Nicolas, the handsome mysterious half breed whose dark secret shadowed his love for his half-brother’s wife
~ Reinette, Natalie’s daughter, who gave her heart to an outcast and her body to her handsome captor
~and Daniel, Reinette’s son, who thirsted for vengeance and took his enemy’s daughter as hostage.
