As a child Hester Wyatt escaped slavery, but now the dark skinned beauty is a dedicated 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 the great conductor 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. When the injured and beaten Galen Vachon, aka, the Black Daniel awakens in Hester's cellar, he is unprepared for the feisty young conductor providing his care. As a member of one of the wealthiest free Black families in New Orleans, Galen has turned his back on the lavish living he is accustomed to in order to provide freedom to those enslaved in the South. However, as he heals he cannot turn his back on Hester Wyatt. Her innocence fills him like a breath of fresh air and he is determined to make this gorgeous and intelligent woman his own… Yet…there are traitors to be discovered, slave catchers to be evaded and Hester's heart to be won before she and Galen can find the freedom that only true love can bring.

Make sure to see the thoughts of these other great ladies: Jennifer @ Feminist Fairy Tales, Amanda @ On A Book Bender, and Quinn @ Quinn’s Book Nook.
I was told once, that my hands would brand me a slave for the remainder of my years”“They were correct, but as long as it doesn’t brand who you are in your heart, the color of your hands, like the color of your skin, is no consequence”
Be careful baby girl, I bite. I’ll give you more French than you’ll know what to do with
“Life is too short to be so serious”“These are serious times,”“Yes, they are, which is why it’s important to seek out humor and beauty whenever possible. If we don’t, we’ll all be buried beneath the weight of misery”“Philosophy, Galen?”“No, Petite, Truth”
