Year 1714, Saint Domingue, Greater Antilles. The young Anne Marie is expelled from the convent, the only home she has known since she was born; she has done wicked things at the chapel, though these things were very pleasant for her. The sisters entrust the troublesome child to the first tradesman who comes to town to take her to the most important house of the city. But this man is neither a trader nor a man, for she is the dreaded pirate Jezzabel Avery, known all over the Caribbean for her countless felonies. Anne finds this out late, and she is made a prisoner and taken on board to be sold as a sex slave.
