Straying innocently from a crowded ballroom, Charlotte Sinclair overhears the wrong conversation, and suddenly she's a captive of Nicholas Wright, a man she believes a traitor to England. Now Charlotte is forced to go on the run with a devil who's far too attractive.
Nicks mission for the Crown requires that he pose as a criminal, and now Charlotte threatens to muck everything up. The last thing he needs is to be saddled with a spirited and bewitching woman who drives him to distraction. Nick discovers that the greatest danger is one he seems powerless to avoid: falling in love!
