She enlists the help of backwoodsman Jesse Bird to lead her over the mountains to western North Carolina. Her stepfather and suitor in swift pursuit, Tamsen must face wild animals, violent weather, and volatile groups of Native Americans. In her bid for freedom, Tamsen bargained for none of this, especially not for her growing attraction to her unlikely rescuer. When pursuit finally catches up with them, having fallen in love with Jesse Bird could prove the greatest risk of all.
