What happens when you mix a free-spirited frontier woman and a buttoned-down military hero against the colorful backdrop of the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion...?
Whitney Daniels preferred buckskins to lace, moccasins to proper shoes, and independence to being hogtied into wedlock. And what did she despise above all else? The government men sent to close down her family's distillery in Rapture Valley, PA, where no one paid taxes or gave up their rights to making the best whiskey in America without a hell of a fight.
Major Garner Townsend, of the distinguished Boston Townsends, knew how a lady should behave when he took her in his arms. But Whitney Daniels was as far from an Eastern debutante as her wild backwater town was from his prestigious Back Bay. Worse, she was leading the very rebellion he was under orders to crush. Garner knew the consequences of falling for a woman like Whitney. He also knew how to do his duty. But now -- the consequences be damned -- he suddenly had to answer to a higher authority: the powerful yearning of his passionate heart.
