Publisher's Summary

Ariana Fitzroy has lost her family and her fortune. The fight for survival leads her to the shadowed card games of court, where she discovers she has quite a talent for slipping cards into her favor. While the winnings are enough to sustain her at present, they will not last forever....

Connor Grant, trainer of the fallen women from the English court and personal assassin to the king, is just as broken as the women he trains. After losing his own land and all his people in a brutal attack from a trusted friend, he has no choice but to rebuild any way he sees possible - even if it means going against everything he's ever believed in.

After catching Ariana cheating at cards, Connor has a new trainee to instruct at one of the king's many confiscated castles. In the dilapidated ruins, he discovers Ariana is more than she appears and falls in love with her incredible tenacity and dedication - a love that is challenged by Connor's chance at reclaiming the inheritance he once lost and has sought so desperately to regain.

    Story
    "Connor and Ariana are my new power couple!"

    I don't think there was anything about this book I didn't like. I read Highland Ruse before this book so, of course I already knew and loved Delilah's character, but then you add in Ariana and Connor (and the way they skirt around their growing attraction for each other) and I couldn't put this book down.

    I received this book from the author in exchange for my review and then downloaded the Audible companion to it. I am so glad I did because I always wondered how to pronounce some of the words and the narration (read by Dave Gillies) was fantastic! He really brought Connor and Ariana to life!

    Of all, though, I think Percy quickly became my favorite. She was quiet and sweet and always so kind. She made me smile each time she showed up in this story, but I also loved her strength. And, how the others respected her.

    And wow, if that wasn't the most romantic game of strip poker I ever heard of! Each book I read by Madeline Martin surpasses the one before it, leaving me eager for more!

    "Intrigue and Suspense with a Good Dose of Romance"

    As I finished listening to Highland Spy, I just had to write a review to encourage anyone interested to listen to Dave Gillies narrate a wonderful romantic story of court intrigue and suspense.
    Madeline Martin has written a fantastic story delivered by the incredible Dave Gillies!
    All I can say is "I loved it" and would give it more than 5 stars if possible!

    "Narrator ruined it for me"

    I listen to most books with ear buds. The sound Mr. Gillies makes is piercing actually hurting my ears. I cannot listen to another minute. Story might be good but was so distracted by the pain I couldn't pay attention. I'm returning.
