When Juliana Caldwell is abducted from a MacGregor gathering to become the bride of Neal Cameron, time is of the essence to find her. Rory MacGregor is the best tracker the clan has and is ordered to bring her back, even though the two of them have never agreed on anything including that the sky is blue and the grass green.
He certainly would not be Juliana’s first choice of a hero, but at the moment she isn’t going to quibble about who her rescuer is. She’ll do anything to escape, even pretending to be hand-fasted to Rory in order to get the Cameron laird to release her. That plan soon goes awry, and she and Rory are pursued by a determined Neal and they take a circuitous route home, only to be caught in a blizzard that closes the mountain pass they need to take.
They are stranded at Invergarry Castle which poses its own problems since the MacDonnells are friends of the MacGregors and the pseudo-hand-fasting suddenly becomes real. Rory begins to realize that the idea rather appeals to him, but breaking the news to Juliana will be another matter.
