Ordered home to the Highlands by her brother, Barbara MacRae bemoans the boredom of her isolated life after the pleasures of the Scottish court. Yet her journey brings excitement when she is kidnapped and a masked swordsman comes to her rescue. Known as the Black Fox, he leaves her with a silver coin and a kiss that haunts her dreams...especially when she learns she must marry the wealthy but unexciting Sir Alexander Chisholm.
Raised as a gentleman, the Fox rides the glens as an outlaw, defending fellow Highlanders against all who would destroy their traditional way of life. His success is legendary, but he will risk all to satisfy his passion for Barbara...just as she will dare all to discover the truth hidden beneath his mask.
