Forced to serve the British, Scotsman Iain MacKinnon and his troops use their Scots bravery and skills learned from Native Americans to become MacKinnon's Rangers.

On a mission, Iain defies orders by rescuing a white woman from an Abenaki warrior. Lady Anne Burness-Campbell is certain she is looking at the face of death when Iain appears. She wonders if she is going from the frying pan into the fire, but traveling with Iain is her only chance for survival.

Though Iain's actions have placed him in danger, he cannot leave Anne, who resembles the fiancee he was unable to save from a massacre, to an uncertain fate. Their journey teaches Anne much about the wilderness, the frontiersmen, the colonists and the man who risks his life for her. He is the man she wants more than a life as a lady of the manor.

Clare brings colonial America to life, vividly portraying the reality of the harsh and dangerous life faced by colonists and the military. She also brings the intense emotions of her characters into the forefront of her story, compelling readers to truly feel what they feel, see what they see and be completely engrossed in their story.
