Emma Davenport was going to be a bride, and no one was going to stop her, not even an outlaw.  Bound for a forbidden marriage to her father’s sworn enemy, Emma’s scheme shatters when she is abducted and spirited away to a remote hideout.  Any proper young woman would be frightened out of her wits, but she challenges her daring, seductive captor at every turn.
