I've slowed down on my reading as I'm back at work and busy with life matters that just pop up, but I have done some reading.
SPOILER ALERT Claire has been riding around the country side with Clan MacKenzie, collecting rents and money for Bonnie Prince Charlie and in that time, Dougal took Claire to meet with the garrison commander at Brockton who just happens to be Captain Jonathon Randall. After a thump to the stomach and then a visit to St Ninian's Spring with Dougal, he is convinced that Claire isn't a spy, French or English and the only way to save her from being handed over to Black Jack is to become a Scot. How does one do that? Marriage of course.
