As a child, Hester Wyatt escaped slavery, but now the dark-skinned beauty is a member of Michigan's Underground Railroad, offering other runaways a chance at the freedom she has learned to love. When one of her fellow conductors brings her an injured man to hide, Hester doesn't hesitate . . . even after she is told about the price on his head. The man in question is known as the "Black Daniel," a vital member of the North's Underground Railroad network. But Hester finds him so rude and arrogant, she begins to question her vow to hide him. Galen Vachon is a member of one of the wealthiest free black families in New Orleans. He has turned his back on the lavish living he is accustomed to in order to provide freedom to those who are enslaved in the South. However, as he heals, he cannot turn his back on Hester Wyatt; he is determined to make this gorgeous and intelligent woman his own. Yet there are traitors to be discovered and slave catchers to be evaded before Hester and Galen can find the freedom that only true love can bring. Contains mature themes.

Professional reviews

"Thanks to her talent for characterization, narrator Robin Eller convincingly delivers the romance between Underground Railroad conductor Hester Wyatt and the mysterious Black Daniel, a freedom fighter who appears at her hideaway seeking help and safety. Eller makes their emotional connection tangible from their first meeting. Her consistency and astute ear for accents help overcome potential confusion when Black Daniel returns as the wealthy and privileged Galen Vachon, a man Hester knows she can never have. Eller conveys Hester's strength and Galen's determination and devotion with impressive clarity, making each character a unique individual. Her delivery of the narrative, however, remains somewhat flat, obscuring the tension in the plot, as well as the flashes of humor and insight between the stretches of dialogue.
