COMING SEPTEMBER 1, 2021–What would you sacrifice for freedom?
Dahlia never knew her mother—or what happened to her. Taken to work in her master’s home as a servant, she’s desperately lonely. She grows up with Annabelle and Leslie, her two sisters who share a father but nothing more. She’s groomed to be seen and not heard, only to relish in the small joys she finds in her dreams.
Ten years later, Dahlia meets Timothy Ross, an Englishman in need of a wife. Reinventing herself as Lily Dove, Dahlia allows Timothy to believe she’s white, with no family to speak of, and agrees to marry him. She knows the danger of being found out. She also knows she’ll never have this chance at freedom again.
Ensconced in the Ross mansion, Dahlia soon finds herself held captive in a different way—as the dutiful wife of a young man who has set his sights on a political future. But when Bo arrives on the estate in shackles, Dahlia decides to risk everything to save his life. With suspicions of her true identity growing and a bounty hunter not far behind, Dahlia must act fast or pay a devastating price.
