Meghan is kidnapped and put aboard a ship bound for the Americas as a bondswoman. But along the way, the boat is overtaken by pirates and she is kidnapped. She ends up being rescued by Devlin who mistakes her for his fiancée when he invades the pirate’s lair. Meghan advises Devlin that she is part of a good family back in Europe who will pay for her return but he does not believe her and assumes her presence on the slave ship was valid. When he is not able to find his fiancée at his next stop, he continues home where he intends to turn in Meghan to be sold but ends up purchasing her contract instead. His plans for Meghan are uncertain when his fiancée turns up unharmed and she becomes jealous of the bondswoman.
