In 1600s Colonial New England, 20-year-old Rosalind Chandler finds herself experiencing strong desires - sinful ones - for a man who causes her to forget to breathe whenever she is near him. The problem is, he is not the man to whom she is betrothed...not the man who is blackmailing her to force her to marry him.
With the wedding rapidly approaching, Rosalind has to make a decision. Should she follow her heart and risk destroying her family? Or should she protect them by becoming the dutiful wife of a man she does not love?
