The Captive Born
“Downloaded this book a couple hours ago, did not stop for anything in the world!” – S. Rife, Goodreads reviewer
In this America, the civil war never happened and slavery is legal. But it’s not based on race, religion or creed. The government stepped in long ago and made certain that everything was “fair”, that every faction of society was represented equally. And that was several hundred years ago now, so this life is all modern day society has known.
But that doesn’t mean everyone agrees. Not by a long shot. The country is split right down the middle over the issue of captive lives, with tensions rising all the time. And the Riggs family in particular has spent decades leading the charge to abolish the practice.
So when their heir apparent makes a move no one anticipated, it comes as quite a shock.
Because Jason Riggs is now the head of that powerful family and the eye of the country is on him.
He’s rich and young and talented. He has everything he could ever want… and then he sees Val, a captive born.
She’s forbidden to him, but he just can’t help himself, he has to have her. So he does the one thing his family would never approve of… he buys her.
