Liberty Hunter is half Seneca Indian, all red-head, and stands accused of a brutal murder that the citizens of Williamsburg, Virginia believe her fully capable of committing.
Esquire Stephan MacLeod disagrees. Tall, handsome and enamored with Liberty, Stephan believes he can prove Liberty innocent and offers marriage to keep her from jail.
Liberty finds Stephan overbearing and opportunistic, and insists the marriage be in name only. With the judge threatening to see her hang, and the real murderer seeking to end her life, the only safe place may be with Stephan.
Until passion sparks and Liberty realizes Stephan could be more than a temporary safe haven and Stephan discovers he must trust Liberty to make her own decisions.
Still, neither dare speak of love or a true "until death do us part" commitment until the murderer is found.
