Imogen has no idea what she is getting herself into when she assists a wounded man near her home. When she discovers that man is a Jacobite, she becomes internally tortured with whether to abandon the handsome man or to do what is right and help him, but the political atmosphere at the time is such that could shatter not only her family name but her very soul.
Tony may seem the gentleman traitor, but he is so much more, and those secrets he holds can make or break Imogen and all she stands for. Imogen's attraction to the recovering man is evident and when she decides to throw her innocence to the winds, passion with Tony is more than she bargained for. Tony is searching for a document that is needed to make his family whole, and now with more than one purpose at hand, he must show Imogen that she in fact can trust him, for it could mean her being used as a pawn in a political game fraught with danger.
