Lord John SeriesEdit

The Scottish PrisonerEdit

As a favor to her former brother-in-law Tobias Quinn, Betty delivers a message to Jamie Fraser that Quinn wants to meet with Jamie. She flirts with Jamie, who eventually realizes that she only does so to make George Roberts, the butler, jealous.

Upon Jamie's return to Helwater, he does not correct Lord John Grey's impression that he intends to marry Betty. Jamie informs Betty of Quinn's suicide, leaving her to cry in the arms of George Roberts. Jamie gives her a dowry to help her start her new life.

When Lady Isobel Dunsany elopes with Mr. Wilberforce, her father's solicitor, Betty tries to go after her, knowing that Mr. Wilberforce is already married. Jamie finds Betty after she has been thrown from her horse. She convinces Jamie to go and rescue Isobel, whose reputation would be ruined if anyone found out that she had run away with a married man.
