Mistress of the Plantation
by Vonica Colt
The year is 1827, and Miss Dusky Jewel has left her native Vermont to travel to Mississippi, where her arranged marriage will take place. But Dusky quickly finds that her suitor, Mr. Jasper Perrimont, is not to her liking, for he is a slave-owner, a practice she abhors. She soon finds herself captivated by one of Perrimont's slaves, and danger brews as she falls in love.
