Would you risk your life - on the love of a lifetime?
Charleston, 1799: A daughter of Southern gentility and a
gifted painter, Catherine Edilean Harcourt has no lack of
suitors at home in Virginia, waiting to fulfill her dream of
marriage and family. But Cay's adventurous spirit, fostered
by growing up with her three brothers, is piqued while
visiting her godfather in South Carolina. Bedridden with a
broken leg, he asks Cay to fill in for him on an urgent
task: on her way to a fancy dress ball, she must deliver a
packed horse to an old friend's son - who also happens to be
an escaped convict charged with murdering his wife!
agrees to the plan, which doesn't go at all as planned . . .
whereupon she finds herself fleeing Alexander McDowell's
captors, riding blind into the night with the fugitive
Scotsman. Though she should fear him, Cay finds herself
overwhelmingly attracted to Alex, and drawn into his tale of
misguided justice and his innocence as they seek refuge in
the steamy Florida everglades. Will trusting him be the
worst mistake of her life? Or will falling in love be the
salvation both of them have been looking for?
