In 15th century Scotland, Sir Duncan rushes to rescue Lady Meg from the clutches of the Earl of Northumberland. As they risk life and limb to make their escape, the brawny knight is knocked off guard by the sassy redheaded lass. And aye, the tall, dark and rugged Highlander challenges Meg's piety with his every stare.
Duncan must return Meg to her family and collect his bounty before the lass further sinks her wiles into his heart. But Meg's kidnapper is brewing revenge. If Northumberland's ruse is not exposed, Meg may end up becoming a nun, and Duncan a pawn in a deadly game.
