Pursued by the crown prince who wishes to save her, by an English magistrate who wants to imprison her, and by revolutionaries who plan to murder her, Princess Clarice flees to Scotland where she attracts the attention of a most powerful and dangerous man.Justice is Robert MacKenzie's only desire, but the moment he sees Clarice riding into town he is overcome with emotions that have been buried for far too long. Feeling he must have her at any cost, he invites her to stay with him at his manor house and won't take no for an answer.
Soon Robert knows all of Clarice's secrets and he uses this knowledge to blackmail her into giving her unwilling aid to his own perilous plan. Caught between her need to protect her sister and the man who mixes dark emotions with passionate kisses, Clarice plunges into Robert's world.
As Clarice's beauty draws Robert from the shadows and her bright wit teaches him to live again, the treachery around them deepens. He swears to keep her safe, never suspecting that he will face an even greater hazard: losing his heart to the mysterious princess who just might make him believe in happily-ever-after.
"Engaging and witty, Dodd's voice shines through on every page, infusing Clarice and Robert with a genuine warmth and appeal in both the ballroom and the bedroom." (Publishers Weekly)
