Rising romance novelist Jamie Carie's second book tells the epic story of two unlikely soulmates who live worlds apart but soon meet and turn each other's world upside down. Drake Weston, Duke of Northumberland, is accustomed to a life of royalty until a tragic mistake followed by murderous rage results in his sudden flee from England. With a hoarde of money on which to survive, Drake hops a ship of indentured servants to America only to be robbed and taken ill by the merciless sea voyage.
In Pennsylvania, Serena Winter is a humble, devoted Quaker on a mission of mercy, tending the sick aboard a ship that has just arrived from England. Taken by Drake's air of dark mystery as he serve as an apprentice to her silversmith father, Serena falls in love and is excommunicated when she accepts a non-Quaker's marriage proposal. Not knowing Drake's history, Serena is later shocked to discover her new status as a duchess.
