Fiery Kenna Mackenzie is determined not to comply with her guardian's wish that she marry Rory Challoner, an impoverished Scottish laird. She does not love Challoner, and she suspects Robert, her guardian's, motives.When she defies him, Kenna is thrown out onto the streets of Victorian Edinburgh to fend for herself. Stubbornly determined that she will not give in, she sleeps rough and scrounges for food, until her health fails her. Rescued from the street by a widowed English doctor, Dominic Sterne, Kenna's luck seems to have turned. But Robert Gilmore has not yet finished with her. He has been conspiring to rob Kenna of her inheritance, and will do everything in his power to stall her in her quest for love and happiness...
