Mercy Lytton is a strong willed woman, raised among the Mohawk Indians, she is a keen scout and beautiful at that but no man has tamed her heart yet. Elias Dubois faces death at the gallows unless he agrees to accompany a stolen shipment of gold to a nearby fort and pretend to be part of a family along the way as a ruse for those who might attack. In this family, he is to pose as Mercy’s husband, a position not tenable for either of them.

The Captured Bride contains some suspense, action and, of course, the romance of two people drawn to each other yet not willing to admit it. Elias often pours out his heart to his God and Mercy draws on her mother’s Christian strength that she repudiated while her mother was alive.
