This passionate historical romance featuring the second generation of the Sutherland family sweeps from the Scottish Highlands to colonial Maryland, where a struggling young woman makes a desperate bargain with a freedom fighter
Minutes before being hanged for treason against the British crown, Ian Sutherland is suddenly spared . . . only to end up in chains again, this time in the hold of a ship bound for the colonies. In America, he becomes the indentured servant of a prosperous Maryland farm owner. But the noble freedom fighter vows to one day escape his servitude and sail back across the sea to his clan. Then he meets Fancy Marsh.
John Marsh rescued Fancy and her half sister Fortune from a terrible fate. Now Fancy shares a good life with her husband, their two children, and an ever-increasing menagerie of pets. But when John dies, Fancy is left at the mercy of his cruel, covetous brother. In desperation, she turns to her rugged, enigmatic bond servant to help her protect her name and legacy. Although Ian agrees to her risky plan, Fancy knows that his heart longs for Scotland. But their dangerous charade soon flames into irresistible passion and the one thing they never expected: a love that can prevail over their most treacherous enemies and the winds of fortune.
