Liberty Brooks has a mind of her own and a fierce determination to live independently. It is her need for employment and a place to live that brings her to the notorious Zeke Malloy, a devoted abolitionist. But Malloy, bound by the perilous secrets of the Underground Railroad, is not about to open his heart or mind to a strong-willed young woman foolish enough to think she can become involved in this dangerous cause. Yet Liberty's prim beauty and innocence inspire desires he is driven to both act on and deny. Stirred by the hot, hungry passion he has awakened in her, then confused and hurt by his cruel rejection, Liberty embarks on her own perilous journey, boldly defying a ruthless slave trader... and finding herself entrapped in a terrifying bondage from which only Zeke can rescue her.
