(From the publisher):
Once a pampered courtesan in France, Claudia Valemont has lost her mother, her protector, and her lifestyle to the French Revolution. To avoid the guillotine herself, Claudia flees to Scotland to search for her only remaining relative: a father who knows nothing of her existence...
What Claudia finds is hardship and heartbreak. Now penniless, she is forced to steal to survive. Her crime nearly puts her in the hangman's noose, until the hangman himself comes to her rescue. Pleading on her behalf, he gets her sentence commuted to three months' labor in the village commons under his watchful eye. Though indebted to her mysterious savior, Claudia feels more than gratitude at his side -- and as a harsh Scottish winter descends, her Lord Jack might just heal her wounded heart...
