Captain Prince and Susan Webb, a proud beauty of Charleston society, are rivals for Monnelia, the plantation's belle sauvage. A gentler girl, Tania, attempts to free a pretty Eurasian slave and tastes vengeance from the master's whip. Behind the shuttered windows of the plantation house, white maidservants toil under a different sort of slavery, and in one hot summer of repression, they are all drawn together.

Monnelia was an exquisitely-formed slavemaiden, a creature of natural poise and lithe figure. She seemed the daughter of African grace or darkest Caribbean elegance tempered by the southern genius of Louisiana or Mississippi. She was just nineteen years old and had the seductive loveliness of a heathen warrior-princess. When she was brought on to the auction dais in New Orleans, they had made her pose naked to show the deep bronze smoothness of her body. The long lines of her dark-skinned thighs and legs had a satiny gloss as the strong lights were directed upon her. Her thighs were trim and her hips rounded, her shoulders sleek and her breasts carried high. Her warm-toned face was animated by eyes that seemed wide and soft. Her nose and chin were perfectly formed in their African beauty.
