After a midnight rendezvous with her lover, a 17th century Englishwoman's contentment is shattered when she is brutally ravaged by three drunkards in the forest.  She awakes in the Americas from a fevered state in the care of a colonial couple. 

While recovering she experiences a strange transformation and becomes mysteriously drawn to the husband Jonathon.  Her heart increasingly driven towards the man she believes saved her life, causing her to commit unforgivable acts, all the while not knowing she is being searched for the world over, saved in fact by the love of an English Lord with his vampires "kiss".
