In the winter of 1667, Miguel de Torres and his brother Diego are accused of high treason and condemned to perpetual exile. Trying to rebuild their lives in Maracaibo, they are captured by the pirate Captain Morgan who sells them as slaves. Meanwhile, Kelly Colbert must face the punishment of travelling to Jamaica for having refused to agree to an arranged marriage. At her uncle’s plantation, she will be forced to struggle against the mores of plantation society, her disgust with the institution of slavery and, above all, attraction to Miguel, the arrogant Spanish slave.
