Cumberland forces Bethia MacDonnell to marry Rory, who she feels is pathetic. He dresses like a wimp and she heard he cowardly fled the battlefield even if he fought for her enemy. She needs the help of the brave Black Knave to rescue her brother held hostage by Cumberland. The Black Knave has saved numerous Jacobites from the wrath of the victors sending them to safety in France. As Rory and Bethia find reasons to distrust and loathe one another, they still fall in love. However, she needs a champion not a loser like Rory, even if at times he seems so heroic.
THE BLACK KNAVE is a retelling of the classic Scarlet Pimpernel that makes Patricia Potter either a raving lunatic or an intrepid, confident author. After reading the historical romance, readers will realize that the awesome author pulls off a coup as she freshens up both the Pimpernel premise and the overwritten post-Culloden novel. Rory and Bethia are a wonderful couple who fall in love amidst the ruins of war and its aftermath. The story line is action packed and never allows the reader to sit back as Ms. Potter provides her audience with a thriller.
