Summary

The third book in the Voices series, Voices Echo stands alone as a riveting depiction of both the beauty of 18th-century Jamaica and the horrors of plantation life in the British West Indies.

When Albert Ross sailed to Jamaica months after their wedding, Rhiannon Ross believed he’d abandoned her for the sanctuary of his West Indies plantation and complacent mulatta mistress. Not one to live life in limbo, Rhiannon has followed in a bid to secure the funds necessary to ensure her financial independence and position as his lawful wife, and to quell her growing attraction to her unsuitable American advisor, Liam Brock.

Within weeks of her arrival, she finds the estate’s manager has vanished, a slave rebellion brews in neighboring Saint-Domingue, and a bright, young army major is investigating the planters’ activities—including her husband’s. Evading Albert’s attempts to book her passage back to Philadelphia’s safe haven, Rhiannon instead endeavors to unravel the intrigues that threaten her husband and their livelihood.

Determined to put the enticing Mrs. Ross out of his mind, Liam Brock accepts his first assignment as an attorney to escort a young heiress to her father’s Jamaican estate. Convinced his and Rhiannon's ships have crossed paths, he is stunned to learn Rhiannon is still with her husband, and shocked when he finds her isolated and frightened—a shell of the vibrant woman who still fills his dreams. Torn between his distaste for slavery and his irrational desire to be near Rhiannon, a woman he can never have, Liam decides to stay and soon settles into the island's rhythm.

But beneath the exotic beauty of an island teeming with vitality beats a sinister pulse. As evidence of smuggling and dark magic are uncovered, Rhiannon realizes that not only is her plantation in danger, but the lives of those she holds dearest are at stake. Though she attempts to hide her feelings for Liam, she cannot bear the thought of him coming to harm because of her. As greed on the island evolves into violence and violence into murder, Liam and Rhiannon find themselves in the middle of a deadly conspiracy. Both must decide how far they will go in the name of protecting the other, and how much they will sacrifice to reach for a future neither thought possible.
