Linda McLaughlinThe Pennsylvania frontier is wild, primitive and dangerous, where safety lies at the end of a gun. Mara Dupre's life crumbles when a French and Indian war party attacks her cabin, kills her husband, and she is taken captive. French lieutenant Jacques Corbeau's desire for his captive threatens what little honor he has left.
From the wilderness of Pennsylvania to the fall of Quebec, Mara and Jacques are thrust into the tumult of war and passion, relying each other to stay alive. Before the war ends, they will risk death, embrace life, and discover a love that transcends all bounds.
