Elen Burnard, Lady of Dunblane, learns her sister has been kidnapped by her adversary, the Forrests of Rancoff Castle. Leading the men of Dunblane in heated pursuit, she brings home her prize: Munro Forrest, the Lord of Rancoff himself. All that remains is to barter Munro's life for her sister's safe return... and ignore the unexpected emotions her prisoner stirs in her heart.
Munro Forrest finds his jailer as bewitching as she is beautiful, and soon it is desire, more surely than shackles, keeping him at Dunblane.
But Elen and Munro are playing with fire, and in the end, longing of the soul must reconcile with duty, if both wish to stay alive.
