Sir Sebastian Hilliard was everything that beautiful, young, Scotch noblewoman Skye Crawford detested in an Englishman. He had wealth and power, and the arrogance t use them to get what he wanted. He had good looks and charm, and the ability to use them as well. What he wanted now was to put Skyes brave brother in prison for defying British might, and hold her in bondage in his London mansion as his ward. Spirited Skyes personal war of independence had begun, against this lord who assumed he merely had come to conquer, and against the tremors of surrender in her own treacherous heart.
Scots noblewoman, Skye Crawford's brother is in trouble for defying British authority. Sebastian Hilliard wants to put Skye's brother in prison to rot, and holds Skye as bond in his London mansion.
