In 1758 the Pennsylvania frontier is wild, primitive and dangerous, where safety
often 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 takes her captive.
Marching through the wilderness strengthens her resolve to flee, but she doesn’t count on her captor teaching her the meaning of courage and the tempting call of desire.
Her destiny …
French lieutenant Jacques Corbeau’s desire for his captive threatens what little
honor he has left. But when Mara desperately offers herself to him in exchange for her freedom, he finds the strength to refuse and reclaims his lost self-respect. As the shadows of his past catch up to him, Jacques realizes that Mara, despite the odds, is the one true key to reclaiming his soul and banishing his past misdeeds forever.
