A flip of a card, a throw of the dice, a turn in the road ....
Damaris Tilghman loses everything when her father gambles away their home and then commits suicide. She is resigned to becoming a servant to a distant relative, but when she receives an unexpected marriage proposal from wealthy planter Matthew Pope, she wagers her future on the outcome. At first, as their love grows, she thinks she has won the toss.
She soon discovers she has a rival in Zoë, who has convinced her fellow slaves that she is a conjure woman, and it is her orders that must be obeyed. Damaris tries to refute her claim, but the slaves believe Zoë's lies and her so-called spells.
When her husband puts her aside for the beautiful slave, Damaris wonders if he, too, is under Zoë's spell--and if her love is strong enough to break it.

Great story Bruney can really pen a story, and I really like the character of Damaris. Filled with romance, love, intrigue, and loyalty, it's a wonderful story. I enjoyed reading this, and highly recommend it. Is there truly honor among thieves? Read this book to find out.
