As they begin their arduous journey north, it appears to Keegan that despite her constant haranguing about her ill health (and, yes, that was annoying), the girl he has taken hostage is quite braw. So much so, she is able to escape Keegan, but then falls into the hands of a notorious smuggler who takes Keegan captive as well, hoping for a large ransom for both the girl and the Scot when he delivers them to the English in Scotland.
The other two stories in the trilogy are set in Ireland and Scotland (The Rogue is a time travel) and describe what happens to the men who met on Culloden Moor that fateful day. I recommend them.
