Catherine "Cay" Harcourt from Virginia visits her godfather T. C. in Charleston. Her family hobnobs with the likes of Thomas Jefferson as T. C. convinces her to help rescue a condemned prisoner on her way to a ball. Scottish immigrant Alex McDowell is a self-made man who thought he had many friends in Charleston until his bride was found dead the morning after the ceremony. All Alex knows is that he was drugged. When Cay arrives with a horse for Alex, the two escape together when the rescue goes awry. Keeping to his original plan of joining an expedition in the wilds of Florida, they travel only as fast as the news of the escape, forcing Cay to don boy's clothes and pretend to be Alex's brother. As love blooms, their future looks bleak unless they can find out what really happened to Alex's wife.

Jude Deveraux does it once again with this book. She manages to re-create the days gone by with her rich storytelling. The details in the book are amazing. In this story, we move away from her usualy Edilean based stories.

In this story our heroine meets our hero, who is a fugitive and helps to clear his name. Their adventures in this name clearing journey makes for a delightful book. Anymore details and the book is spoiled for other readers. I hope you like this book as much as I did.
