Publisher's Summary

"The Virginia Company of London seeks 100 willing maids for marriage to bachelor planters of James Cittie Colony. Maids must be young, handsome, and honestly educated."

Having read this promising broadside, Modesty Brown flees from arrest in London for the safety of married bliss in the New World. At 26, she might not be young, nor handsome, and most certainly not honest. But educated, she is. Upon her arrival in Jamestown, the saucy wench is accused of witchcraft by a ruthless nobleman - and it's either burn at the stake or wed a savage.

In buckskins and a breechclout, Mad Dog Jones is certainly the savage - and he abhors the thought of a wife or family - or anything else that would remind him of his tortured past. In the virgin forests of the newly found colony, Mad Dog regards the tainted pub wench Modesty as the savage. Yet their savage passions for one another cannot be denied by night. And by day each is determined to be rid of the other...even if it means for Mad Dog gambling off the indentured contract of his wife, Modesty; even if it means for Modesty killing off her master, Mad Dog.

    "Feisty Virginia Historical Romance"

    I was looking for something a little different to listen to so during the latest sale I decided to give this book a try. It turned out that this book was better than I expected.

    This is not a the typical romance novel. There are several love stories within this book that intertwine and add dimension to the plot. The feisty characters are nicely written and the story has just enough interesting Virginia history and twists to keep your attention.

    The book is definitely better than the narration. For some reason the narration felt a little old and stale. I didn't hate it but it really took some life away from the book. I realize everyone has different narration preferences so make sure you listen to the audio sample so you can decide for yourself.

    This one is definitely worth a listen if you get it on sale. :-)

    "Wonderful Historical story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Maidenhead to be better than the print version?

    I think the audio version of this book really added to the story. Great job by the narrator


    Any additional comments?

    A great story by Parris Afton Bonds! I loved the adventure in this book and how Modesty could always get herself out of troublesome situations she got herself into!

    Any additional comments?



    Modesty, the female lead, is in a bit of trouble but she is able to escape to England in the nick of time where she meets the male lead, Mad Dog.

    A deal is made and a bargain struck and this is when the book really begins.

    The story was an overall Interesting Read.


    Audrey Lusk did well with the narration.
