Conceived on Midsummer Night by the masked man who comes to pleasure the Solstice Maid, Pagan Clough grows up knowing herself to be different from other girls. When Adam Paget invites her to ride with him to Somerset she seizes the chance. More dangerous than the Monmouth Rebellion in which she becomes embroiled is her own nature, for Pagan is betrayed many times by her own sensuality - by the raging desires that Loki, the bearkeeper, and the cold-hearted Judge Jeffreys use for their own ends.
