"The Virginia Company of London seeks 100 willing maids for marriage to bachelor planters of James Cittie Colony. Maids must be young, handsome, and honestly educated."
Having read this promising broadside, Modesty Brown flees from arrest in London for the safety of married bliss in the New World. At 26, she might not be young, nor handsome, and most certainly not honest. But educated, she is. Upon her arrival in Jamestown, the saucy wench is accused of witchcraft by a ruthless nobleman - and it's either burn at the stake or wed a savage.
In buckskins and a breechclout, Mad Dog Jones is certainly the savage - and he abhors the thought of a wife or family - or anything else that would remind him of his tortured past. In the virgin forests of the newly found colony, Mad Dog regards the tainted pub wench Modesty as the savage. Yet their savage passions for one another cannot be denied by night. And by day each is determined to be rid of the other...even if it means for Mad Dog gambling off the indentured contract of his wife, Modesty; even if it means for Modesty killing off her master, Mad Dog.
