A strong-willed, fast-talking beauty with a preference for buckskins over lace and independence over marriage...Whitney Daniels is one of a kind. The year is 1794. The American Revolution is over, but a battle is just beginning for Whitney, who is determined to keep her family's distillery from falling into government hands—even if she has to take on a high-ranking officer to do it.

She's trouble—wild, intoxicating, irresistible trouble—the kind of trouble that could make a man forget his duty and surrender to uncontrollable desire. Worse, she's leading the very rebellion he is under orders to crush. The lady is spoiling for a fight, and the Major is happy to give it to her...but he doesn't have to fight fair.
Against the backdrop of the Whiskey Rebellion, two lovers are about to meet on a battlefield where passion and true love lead the charge...
