A daring, impulsive Edinburgh heiress travels to London in hopes of secretly publishing her radical writings on Scottish independence, while her aunts compete as matchmaker and uncles work to unseat the Prime Minister.
When her favorite suitor—a methodical, seductive lowland baron on a last codebreaking mission for the Crown—uncovers her role in a treasonous conspiracy, each must decide whether politics or passion will hold sway.
With history and family against them, she’ll have to break from her clan, and he’ll have to fight for his rightful inheritance, to overcome opposition and misfortune.
Based on the real-life great-niece of Sir Walter Scott’s Bride of Lammermoor and the great-nephew of Lord Ravenswood. First in a series about the Royal Company of Archers.
