"Anne Farquharson is a young Highlander - tempestuous, bold, determined to be her own woman. Yet the clan Farquharson - like its close neighbours and rivals - is under threat. The Highlands suffer at the domineering hand of English King George, while there are rumours that Bonnie Prince Charlie, in exile in France, is seeking to return and hoping to raise an army in a bid for the throne." "When Anne agrees to marry a clan chief, she is doing much more than taking his bed. For she and her supporters are drawn into the heart of the brutal and bloody conflict, and as the Jacobite rebellion escalates, she and her husbands find themselves on opposite sides of the battlefield." "In a time when civil war is tearing the nation apart, Anne believes she can be a match for anyone. By sword. By conviction. By passion."--BOOK JACKET.
