Summary

In 1772 England, Lady Keturah Banning Tomlinson and her sisters find themselves the heiresses of their father's estates and know they have one option: Go to the West Indies to save what is left of their heritage.Although it flies against all the conventions for women of the time, they're determined to make their own way in the world. But once they arrive in the Caribbean, proper gender roles are the least of their concerns. On the infamous island of Nevis, the sisters discover the legacy of the legendary sugar barons has vastly declined--and that's just the start of what their eyes are opened to in this unfamiliar world. Keturah never intends to put herself at the mercy of a man again, but every man on the island seems to be trying to win her hand and, with it, the ownership of her plantation. She could desperately use an ally, but even an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend leaves her questioning his motives. Set on keeping her family together and saving her father's plantation, can Keturah ever surrender her stubbornness and guarded heart to God and find the healing and love awaiting her?

    Yeah, that's right. It was a complete accident. No, I don't expect you to believe me. But, I swear, it was.
    
    See, I can explain…
    
    
    Excerpt:
    
    It was a late night at the office and I was very tired. My sexy wife, Alicia, texted me a nude selfie, telling me that there was a surprise waiting in our bed when I got home.
    
    That excited me. I thought about that surprise and got myself all horny and leaky with pre-cum until it was time to go home. I raced inside, threw off my uncomfortable clothes and tip-toed into the bedroom.
    
    I expected to see my wife sprawled out on the bed, completely naked, her luscious, red-haired body ready for my inspection. But I was puzzled when the room was not only dark, but silent.
    
    My heart beat faster. Was something wrong?
    
    I slowly crept up to my bed, felt around and smiled when I felt my wife's body. But it really wasn't my wife's body and I didn't know it. See, we'd had some financial troubles and had to move back in with my mother.
    
    "I'm home..." I whispered into my wife's ear (I'll call her mother from now on as it certainly wasn't my wife).
    
    No response.
    
    I shook her.
    
    Nothing.
    
    Then I smiled. We'd talked about playing sleep sex. This must be the surprise. I didn't know at the time that mom took some Ambien and was out like a light. She must've stumbled into our room by accident.
    
    My cock jumped nearly out of my pants as I thought about fucking my wife/mother (I know, this is weird, even still) in her sleep. I started at her feet and legs and kissed every inch of her delectable body. Mom's skin was so smooth and silky.
    
    I kissed her little toes and tickled them, seeing if she'd awaken, but she didn't. Good. I dove under the covers and spread open mom's legs. The heat of her fiery cunt nearly drove me insane. I'd never smelled my wife's juices so powerful before. If I had been thinking straight, I would've started to piece things together.
    
    But, alas, I wasn't.

    The moment Steve turned 18, his bitch of a mother threw him out. That was the last straw. It was time to turn the tables. Obtaining a mind-control potion, he used it on his mother.
    
    Now she was at his beck and call and would do anything he desired.
    
    And what he desired, was her.
    
    
    Excerpt:
    
    "How dare she do this! Kicking me out of my home when I turned 18! She's a fucking bitch!" Steve stomped back and forth in the kitchen, feeling like a caged animal.
    
    "Calm down. You can stay here as long as you need too." Alfred said, leaning back in his chair. "I know she's treated you like a dog. She corrected you all the time with the belt. She's cucked you big time."
    
    "Thanks, but I want to control her for once." Steve said, stopping as the thought hit him. He shook with fear and anticipation as he looked at his friend.
    
    "You can do that." Alfred said, pulling something out of his pocket and placing it on the table. It was a strange-looking yellow vial.
    
    "What's that?" Steve inquired, looking at it.
    
    "It's a mind-control drug." His friend said, pushing up his glasses.
    
    "You're kidding." Steve scoffed, knowing those things were the stuff of science fiction.
    
    "No, I'm not. Get your mom to drink this and she's yours to do whatever you want." He said with a grin.
    
    "You're pulling my leg." Steve chuckled.
    
    "Nope. Try it. If it doesn't work, I'll give you 100 bucks, If it works I want your mom for a night. Agreed?" Alfred said.
    
    Steve mulled it over and stuck out his hand.
    
    
    "Mom." Steve called out, entering his former home.
    
    "Get out of my house, bastard. You're an adult now and you're on your own." His mom stormed down the stairs with a belt which she slapped on her palm.
    
    Steve controlled a shudder that threatened to crawl up his spine and clench around his heart. There was nothing more he feared than his mother's wrath.
    
    "I thought you might like some wine. Just wanted to come by and say thanks for kicking me out of the house." The lie slipped from his lips as he went into the kitchen and poured her a glass of wine. He slipped the drug into her drink and brought it to her with the bottle.
