Historical romance about a Scottish rebel on the run and a girl who finds and saves him

Hi guys I'm looking for a book I read in the early 80's, it's a romance set in
16th/17th century (?) England or Scotland. What I remember is that it's about a
Scottish rebel called Johnny (devastatingly handsome of course) who gets wounded
and somehow makes his way into the parlour of a house owned by rich, important
folk, and is subsequently found by mousy-but-pretty poor relative staying with
the family. I think her name is Harriet. There's also her bitchy beautiful
cousin who factors in the story as well. Anyway Harriett keeps quiet about him
and hides him in her room which is located in an out of the way attic type area
(of course!), and the rest of the story is about how she nurses him back to health and risks her life keeping
him safe while everyone is hunting for him, he gets better and they fall in
love. I can't remember what happens at the end but that is what I remember of the
story. Cheers and thanks.
