In 15th-century Scotland, Sir Duncan rescues Lady Meg from the clutches of the Earl of Northumberland, and is knocked off guard by the sassy, redheaded lass. And aye, the tall, dark, and rugged Highlander challenges Meg's piety with his every stare.
Sir Duncan must return Lady Meg to her family and collect his bounty before the lass further sinks her wiles into his heart. But Northumberland is brewing revenge, and this time it's not only Lady Meg he intends to ruin. If Northumberland's ruse is not exposed, Meg may very well end up becoming a nun and Duncan a pawn in a deadly game.
