In 1816 York in Upper Canada, British aristocrat Simon St. Bride feels he has enough evidence to see that Lancelot McArthur goes to jail for embezzling money and goods intended for the Indians. He needs to bring his proof to England. Currently, Simon plays whist when Lancelot makes a nasty insinuating comment about Simon¿s friend Isaiah Trewitt and his prudish eighteen years old niece Jane Otterburn. Simon challenges Lancelot to a duel, which he accepts.----- The next morning, Jane busts in on the duel screaming that Isaiah is dying and wants to see Simon. Lancelot fires, but misses. Simon leaves without a shot. Apparently, the ailing Isaiah learned of the duel and was planning to fight Lancelot when his gun discharged. He begs Simon to marry Jane right now in front of him. Simon agrees as honor calls for him to do so. A reluctant Jane and Simon marry just before Simon dies.---- - Simon¿s friend fellow rogue Major Hal Beaumont promises to take Jane and the evidence to England if his pal dies in the duel. Meanwhile Jane mourns her loss, but also worries her true identity as Jane¿s half-sister Nan will make Simon hate her. Still she owes him the truth. After dispatching Lancelot but hurt in the duel, Jane and Simon journey to England. On the trek, they fall in love, but a scoundrel plans to use her secret to save his hide from prison and gain wealth through blackmail.----- - The eighth Rogue tale stars an incredibly courageous heroine whose bravery will touch the audience as few characters do. Simon¿s adjustment to falling in love handled over time is a response to his admiration of his intrepid beloved. Though the villain proves too weak, fans will cherish this strong historical romance thanks to a wonderful lead pair. Jo Beverly pens another winner.----- Harriet Klausner
