In the year of our Lord, 1306, patriots of Scotland, support Robert the Bruce’s fight to free both their conquered country and his family, imprisoned by the English king. Powerful knights like Highlander Sir Alexander MacMillan join the struggle fighting battle after battle for eight long years. All the while, Alexander’s first love, Lady Erca MacNeill, is imprisoned alongside the woman who dared to crown Bruce king of Scotland, Countess Isabella MacDuff. The brutal English king also cruelly imprisons Bruce’s wife, young daughter, and two sisters. To ransom all of them, Bruce and his greatly outnumbered army will have to win one final battle—the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. They fought like Scotsmen and won their freedom. But that is just the beginning for Sir Alexander and Lady Erca. While she was imprisoned, her castle in the Highlands was seized and her clan viciously murdered. This time, with Alexander’s help, she will join the fight to reclaim what is rightfully hers.
