Book Blurb:

The stunning daughter of the French nobleman Dominique, marquis d’Chartes and the African beauty Imani Marsan, Soleil is captivated by everything during her first trip to America including Alex. She loves him almost from their first meeting. However, their love is interrupted when she is abducted and sold into slavery. Alone and scared she only wishes to regain her freedom.

Alexander couldn't help but love the exotic beauty with the caramel skin that made him want to taste it. Losing her was the hardest day of his life. After years of searching she appears as if conjured by his deepest desires. But she returns far from the same. Can they rekindle their love or will they never find the freedom only love can bring.


Jane ran as fast as she could. She refused to be caught by Jacob and his men even if she had to die trying to escape. Between the gash across her stomach and the small load on her back she was moving slowly in her progression, but she would not give up. She had to find a river and soon to conceal her scent. With her wound bleeding harder under the strain of her physical exertion, the bloodhounds had no problem keeping track of her.

“Maman, I’m scared.” Jane reached around her back to sooth her daughter. “I will not let you come to any harm mon amour.” Jane knew the little girl was scared beyond belief. She had seen the beatings Jacob had given Jane and knew that if he caught them there would be hell to pay. Jacob and his men were getting closer with each passing second and it wouldn’t be long before they were caught. Jane couldn’t let anything happen to Hope and had to keep her safe. With a look over her shoulder Jane made a decision.

My Review:

This novel is inspiring yet heartbreaking at the same time. Carr invokes emotions in her characters and in her audience that draw you further and further into this brilliant tale. Carr’s writing is eloquent yet approachable. Her descriptions paint a brilliant picture of both the characters and the scenery in this novel. This historically accurate novel brings forth a multiplicity of issues in a tactful yet realistic manner. The descriptions that she uses fit well with the time period and writing style of the novel while giving the reader some real insight into the story as a whole.

I absolutely love the characters in this novel. The main characters are such strong individuals stuck in situations that they cannot change or control. I really appreciate how they attempted to follow the norm of the times while trying to stay true to themselves. I also appreciate how they found a way to make it all work.

Overall, this is a brilliant novel that I fell in love with from the beginning and didn’t want to let go at the end. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

About the author:

Raised in Charlotte NC, G.S. Carr has always enjoyed indulging in her imagination. At a very young age she had a thirst for reading and the many possibilities it helped come alive in her mind’s eye. She consumed books like they were the air she needed to survive. It seemed inevitable that her love of reading would transcend into a desire to create her own stories. She began writing poetry and stories at the age of 10. By the time she was thirteen she found her passion in the romance genre and has not looked back ever since.
