She, Alyx de Vere, a virginal, sixteen-year-old beauty carried off to nightmare captivity on a Caribbean sugar plantation. He, Simon, handsome, young, once heir to a noble title. He felt no desire for this anonymous woman who was forced upon him. And she knew only fearful hatred for this stranger who was about to violate her youthful innocence.
But as night after night of tremulous, fevered mating passed, something forbidden grew between these two desire-damned lovers-a rapturous passion that drove them to dare any peril to free each other from this savage world of bondage and brutal submission. Simon was sold at auction to August, owner of a plantation in Jamaica, 10 years earlier when he was This story takes place in the late s in Jamaica. Simon was in line to inherit his fathers estates and all that came along with it when his father was injured in a horseriding accident.
But there was one little problem; what to do with Simon? His father fell off the horse as went into a coma. Uncle Phillip put his plan into action. He went to see Simon at school, told him his father was hurt and his mother sent him to come get him and bring him home.
Later that night, Phillip gave Simon some drugged coffee, which made Simon sick, then he passed out. He was taken to his own room to recover. When he awoke, he was bound and gagged. Simon and Phillip then traveled by carriage. The carriage was then attacked by men who kidnapped Simon for ransom, Phillip watching all the while.
Simon awoke on a bed, bound in a hut, being taken care of by some men for about a week. He was blindfolded one day, put into the floor of a carriage and covered by a rug, so as not to be seen by anyone. After traveling for awhile, the carriage stopped, multiple gunshots were fired and the men who helped Phillip with Simon were killed.
Simon knew Phillip did it because he heard his voice. Phillip then forced Simon to swallow some kind of powder. He was later put on a ship with other captives, they sailed to Jamaica and he was put on an auction block naked, examined by a man who ended up buying him. Simon was sold under the name Aston Smith. The studs were to get the female slaves, both black and white, pregnant. Studs were treated better than other slaves. After being a stud for five years, Alyx arrived. One of her friends dared her to do it just for fun, so she did it then got caught.
So Simon and Alyx met in the breeding hut. Just about every night, Simon and Alyx were put in the hut together. They talked and got to know each other. Alyx told Simon how she came to be there and Simon told her his story. Alyx knew she was pregnant and even threw up once while they were together. They talked, he felt her stomach and saw that she was pregnant. She wanted to have him castrated, whipped and hung. After he was whipped and was about to be hanged, August arrived and saved Simon.
They made plans to escape the plantation together. As they were boarding it, gunshots rang out and August and his men shot the captain and another man, and made Alyx and Simon return home.
Simon was whipped times. He was also raped by the man from time to time. One day someone came to the hut Simon lived in and told him his master wanted to see him. They were finally free; Simon, after 13 years, Alyx, after 3. All of them then traveled to see Phillip, who was very sick and in bed.
Neither one mentioned the kidnapping. On the way home, a rider came up to the carriage and told Simon that his uncle wanted to see him. Simon returned alone to the house. When Simon went into the bedroom, Phillip asked Simon if he knew what Phillip had done to him and Simon said yes. Simon wrote up a statement saying that Phillip was retracting his statement about Alyx stealing his horse then got Phillip to sign it. He was going to use that to have the charges against Alyx dropped.
It says, "In the eighteenth century, the Sixth Earl of Anglesey uncle Phillip "is notorious as having procured the kidnapping and bondage in America of his nephew, James Annesley, rightful Lord Altham".

Simon has spent ten years in slavery after being kidnapped and sold by his uncle for his altx. It was unlike anything I had ever read before. Just a burfoed while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It could have been a good book if it had looked more in depth at the issue of slavery. My only complaint is that I felt the ending was a bit rushed.
