Lady Cicely Bowen, daughter of the Earl of Leighton, is sent away by her father when her jealous stepmother threatens her safety. Soon the exiled Cicely becomes best friends with Lady Joan Beaufort, the king’s cousin, and when Joan is married to King James I of Scotland she chooses Cicely as one of the ladies to accompany her north… At the Scot’s court, Cicely finds herself pursued by two men; elegant Andrew Gordon, the laird of Fairlea, and Ian Douglas, the laird of Glengorm, a rough-spoken border lord. When Ian kidnaps Cicely just as Andrew is about to propose, the royal court is sent into an uproar. The queen is demanding the return of her friend and the Gordons are threatening to set the border aflame. But the border lord is difficult to tame, and the lady’s heart is even harder to claim.
