A victim of her brother's gambling debts, lovely Theone Danvers had been left to choose between the hell of debtor's prison--and the lecherous arms of the Marquis de Juliers. But Theone was a fiery beauty with a mind of her own. Disguised as a lad, she took to the highroad with smoking pistols, and stole herself a fortune in gold.
Then, in the green depths of the forest, she meets a rival--a highwayman with haunting emerald eyes, a price on his head, and a noble secret in his past. They join forces, and Theone rides headlong into the greastest danger of her renegade career;the unquenchable passions of a woman's first love!
