Harcourt Edilean Catherine (Cay), a daughter of a talented artist, has been pursuing by many young local men and received many love letters and proposals, but she has no interest to anyone of them. Visiting her adoptive father named T.C. Conner who has currently broken his leg, Cay is asked to deliver a horse to his old friend’s son, Alexander McDowell (Alex) to help him escape from the prison.

Alex is accused of murdering his wife on their wedding night even though he does not commit that crime. To clear his name, Alex sets off a plan to escape from the prison with the help of his father. To his surprise, he cannot believe that Conner sends a girl to help him.

Things become more complicated when the original escape plan does not go well as it expected, and they are stalked by crime hunters. Therefore, Alex has to take Cay to the swamp of Florida to escape until his close friend manages to prove his innocence. On the way to Florida, Alex realizes that somehow he is attracted to this young girl, meanwhile Cay is also drawn into the Alex.

Publisher’s Summary

Would you risk your life – on the love of a lifetime?

Charleston, 1799: A daughter of Southern gentility and a gifted painter, Catherine Edilean Harcourt has no lack of suitors at home in Virginia, waiting to fulfill her dream of marriage and family. But Cay’s adventurous spirit, fostered by growing up with her three brothers, is piqued while visiting her godfather in South Carolina. Bedridden with a broken leg, he asks Cay to fill in for him on an urgent task: On her way to a fancy dress ball, she must deliver a packed horse to an old friend’s son – who also happens to be an escaped convict charged with murdering his wife!

Cay agrees to the plan, which doesn’t go at all as planned…whereupon she finds herself fleeing Alexander McDowell’s captors, riding blind into the night with the fugitive Scotsman. Though she should fear him, Cay finds herself overwhelmingly attracted to Alex, and drawn into his tale of misguided justice and his innocence as they seek refuge in the steamy Florida everglades. Will trusting him be the worst mistake of her life? Or will falling in love be the salvation both of them have been looking for?
