Sir Robert Grant, chieftain of Clan Grant, has earned his reputation. Deadly with knives and the ultimate Highlander, Robert will stop at nothing to protect his clan from the government dragoons. Tough and proud, he has no time for a woman of any sort. But when a Highland daughter is incarcerated, Robert and his men ride to the rescue, regardless of his bloody feud with her father. Rescuing the lass will serve two purposes-both yielding coveted revenge.
A strong-willed and innocent beauty, Janet Cameron refuses to comply with her red-coated captors. Finding the opportunity to flee, she falls straight into the camp of the slippery Clan Grant. At every opportunity, Janet attempts to escape to home, but her efforts are thwarted by that damnable too-good-looking laird who continually knocks her off guard.
Though Janet challenges Robert at every turn, he swears he will not weaken to temptation. But danger and treachery loom, drawing them closer into each other's arms. Backed into a corner, this hardened warrior must make the most important decision of his life: vengeance or love.
