Beautiful, fiery Jocelyn has no desire to join her uncle, John White, on his
expedition to the wilds of America. So her dying father takes matters
into his own hands — and has her shanghaied!

Thomas Colman’s greatest desire is to go to America, but he has no money. So
he strikes a desperate deal with John White: win Jocelyn’s hand in
marriage, or face fifteen years of servitude. Few suspect the tortured
secrets hidden in the handsome minister’s heart — not the least of which
is his growing love for the woman he has agreed to deceive. As
Jocelyn and Thomas begin life in a strange land the colonists call
Roanoke Island they learn the importance of the challenge carried by the
keepers of the ring, but will boldness, faithfulness and success be a
part of their future?
