After the massacre at Culloden, the new marquis of Braemoor, Rory Forbes, takes a Jacobite bride in a marriage of convenience. And though Rory relishes neither the role of lord nor spouse, he uses both to conceal a dangerous game that no one -- especially his infuriating, fascinating new wife -- can know about... — Highland lass Bethia MacDonell initially despises her dissolute "husband," Rory. A political pawn, she plays at marriage while plotting to escape Braemoor and free her imprisoned brother. Only one person can help her...

Named for the playing card he leaves behind, the Black Knave smuggles Jacobites out of Scotland, eluding the English at every turn. But Bethia is determined to find him. Even as she grows closer to the enigmatic Rory, Bethia keeps her plans secret, never suspecting that her hero is nearer than she thinks..
