The lovely Anne Chisholm is tricked into a handfast – the Scottish custom of marriage for a year and a day – with Alexander Sutherland, only to discover that her new husband is wanted for treason by the English authorities, in particular, by her father.
Suddenly she was whirled about as her captor turned, and she felt her body graze the doorjamb as she was shouldered out of the bedroom. She guessed that she must be in the hallway, but when she lifted her head to get her bearings, she could see nothing of her upside-down world beyond the black of night. At her minimal movement, and before she could cry out for help, her head was pushed down and her face was flattened against her captor’s back.
Because she was muffled in a blanket, her arms were nearly useless, so she began to thrash in earnest with her legs. Although those movements brought her the indignity of her captor’s hands on her ankles and thighs and backside, her head was momentarily released, and she lifted it again to cry out. No sound left her panic – stricken throat. She tried again, only to have her captor push her head down again against his back, stifling her.
“Dugald!” her captor whispered to a man ahead of him in the hallway. “She’s awake!”
