Daughter of The Chief of Clan Farquharson, young Anne was the envy of her peers… until she made the mistake of marrying for love!
Her new husband was Angus Mackintosh—22nd Chief of Clan Mackintosh and one of the most powerful men in the Scottish Highlands. At first, Anne was blissfully happy. But trouble quickly brewed as Bonnie Prince Charlie made his way to Scotland to reclaim the Scottish crown.
Angus Mackintosh was a serving officer with the British Army and joined the brutal ranks of troops hunting the young prince down. Anne, a believer in Bonnie Prince Charlie as the true heir to the Scottish throne, saw her life being torn apart before her own eyes. Her husband believed one thing, she another. Anne had to choose between her husband and her country.
She raised a regiment of 500 men and joined the prince to fight King George II’s army. This young woman, with little experience of combat, led her men into battle against regiments of the British Army led by “Butcher” Cumberland. As her clansmen fought their way through the fog at Dornoch, “Colonel” Anne Mackintosh suddenly came face-to-to face with her husband.
Anne’s thrilling adventures across the Scottish Highlands weave through the last Jacobite Rebellion. As she wages her own private battle between her two loves, her broadsword leads armies and downs men. As the dawn of the tragic Battle of Culloden looms, Anne realizes that everything she had done in life came down to love. With chaos and gun smoke erupting there is little she can do but follow her heart.
