STORY: Ever since Lady Grace Walsingham discovered her uncle and sister are spies for the Crown, she has yearned for adventure. She’s counting the days until she can leave barbaric Scotland behind, even if she must endure Highland captain Fagan Murray’s company for weeks.
Fagan has a simple mission: escort the haughty Lady Grace back to England. But nothing is ever easy. The sharp-tongued woman needles him at every turn. But when a menacing threat follows them on their journey, Fagan’s grudging tolerance for Grace turns to respect…and into a perilous attraction that could seal their fate.
REVIEW: This is the second book in Highland Spies series, and I wish it was as good as the first. For me, it was just okay, and for that I blame the characterization of our hero and heroine. Both were a bit off and because of it, the romance felt rushed and forced.
I liked the intrigue and the action within the romance because it was the only thing that kept me reading this story to the end.
In the end, if you’ve read the first book, then you’ll probably want to read this story as well.
