Traitor’s Knot

Cryssa Bazos

England, 1650. Royalist officer James Hart has turned highwayman for the sake of an exiled king, but his loyalties are tested when he meets Elizabeth Seton. Elizabeth risks her life by sheltering fugitives from Parliament, but her attempts to rebuild her life are further threatened when she falls in love with the wanted outlaw.

England, 1650: Civil War has given way to an uneasy peace in the year since Parliament executed King Charles I. Royalist officer James Hart refuses to accept the tyranny of the new government, and to raise funds for the restoration of the king’s son, he takes to the road as a highwayman.

Elizabeth Seton has long been shunned for being a traitor’s daughter. In the midst of the new order, she risks her life by sheltering fugitives from Parliament in a garrison town. But her attempts to rebuild her life are threatened, first by her own sense of injustice, then by falling in love with the dashing Hart.

The lovers’ loyalty is tested through war, defeat and separation. James must fight his way back to the woman he loves, while Elizabeth will do anything to save him, even if it means sacrificing herself.
