Lizzie had no use for romance. She had inherited an inn from her father (a legendary highwayman) who lost his life due to love of his daughter. Lizzie was not about to fall for a handsome face or a pair of broad shoulders.
One night a mysterious guest at the inn was being hunted by the redcoats. Like her mother before her, Lizzie was willing to risk her own safety to prevent the capture of an innocent man. Soon Lizzie was able to understand how a woman could defy death for the man of her dreams.
