After the king she loves sets her aside for another woman, Anne Greensward must submit to an arranged marriage in a barony far from the court. On the way to meet her new husband, she encounters a masked highwayman known only as Nocturne, who first saves her life—then promptly steals her dowry.
The king and court consider the dashing bandit to be nothing more than a villain and a traitor.
