This Highland Laird won't bow to the Crown
Laird Ruairi Sutherland refuses to send his only son away to be educated by the English. And he most definitely will not appear in Edinburgh to pay homage to a liege who has no respect for Scotland. So he does what any laird would do—he lies to the king. The last thing Ruairi expects is a beautiful English governess to appear on his doorstep.
But this lady spy might make him...
Lady Ravenna Walsingham is a seasoned spy who is sent to the savage Highlands to uncover a nefarious plot against the Crown. Playing the part of an English governess—a job easier said than done—she infiltrates the home of Laird Sutherland, a suspected conspirator.
If she doesn't betray him first
Ravenna soon discovers that the only real threat Sutherland poses is to her heart. But will the proud Highland laird ever forgive her when he discovers the woman he loves in an English spy?
First in this series and I can’t wait to check out the others! 🙂
What I thought of this book.
Who doesn’t love a Highlander, those kilts, that sexy accent….sighs. I want one. 🙂
This is my first novel by this author but I can’t wait to read/listen to more. I am so glad I have the second one to dig into soon!
Laird Ruairi Sutherland won’t bow to the king of England and send his son to England to be taught English. So to some that means he could be part of those who want to fight against the English King. So they send a spy to check him out in the guise of a governess to teach his son English. Lady Ravenna Walsingham is that spy. She has been working for her uncle since her parents died so that her sisters would never have to do anything like this or worst.
Ravenna figures that the Laird is going to be a horrible brute but she didn’t think he was going to be so handsome. What was suppose to be a pretty easy assignment is about to get complicated when she falls for the highlander and his son. To bad he is going to hate her when he finds out she is a spy.
Laird Ruairi is a very head strong, handsome, and stubborn Scott. Sighs. I have a soft spot for Scotts. They just make me melt, I love the Scottish accent and this Laird could melt any heart. He is a great father to his son and he won’t give in on what he thinks is right. He won’t fight the English unless they come after him even if it gets him in trouble with his ex father-in-law.
Ravenna is a pretty spunky lady which I love. I mean she is a spy, can’t get much more spunky than that. She does have a fear of dogs, but lots of people are like that. And well Angus is not just a dog but a wolf so I will give her that one. She takes to the Lairds son quickly and has a lot of fun teaching him English. She also takes fairly quickly to the handsome Laird, bu I don’t think I can fault her for that either…he would just talk to me in that accent and I would be a goner. 🙂
My Highland Spy was a very good sexy book and I enjoyed it very much. If you like Scots and historical romances then I am sure you will like this one as well. 🙂 I think I just want the man on the cover…sighs. 🙂
Justine Eyre does a great job as narrating most of the time but I am not sure if Scottish is her thing. Her male Scottish voices were just not real good. It wasn’t horrible and I did get use to them but just not great. Other than that she done a great job.
