Claire Leyton, homeless and desperate, survives by her wits and her skill with a knife on the docks of England. When she picks the wrong sheep to fleece, Shane concocts a plan to use this clever actress in a bizarre plot to foil the king's plans. When the scheme goes awry, their lives and hearts hang in the balance.
