In a society where she doesn't belong, Senona Montez, a strong-willed and free-spirited woman refuses to follow the path expected of a Don's only child.
On the eve of her marriage to a stranger, she saddles her horse and flees everything she knows, only to discover the petty concerns of society did not prepare her for the harsh life on the open sea. She finds an unlikely protector in a reckless privateer, Brant Foxton.
Straddling the worlds of independence and privilege in 1600's Europe, this captivating man challenges her in ways she never thought possible, shows her what living to the fullest really means, and allows her to follow her heart wherever it leads.
“With the exquisite pacing you’ve probably come to expect from a Steendam novel, along with her knack for pitching a curve at just the right moment to have you flipping pages and leaning forward in your seat, Unforgiving Plains is western writing at its best!” Sara Barnard, Bestselling author of Rebekah’s Quilt and An Everlasting Heart series.
