Summary

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.

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.

Contains mature themes.

Didn’t want this story to end!

Great story! You were able to get to know all the characters and their personalities. Narrator was good too. She did well with the different languages. On to the next book in the series! Enjoy!

Nice Story, But Not Sizzling

Lady Ravenna is an enjoyable character, and I liked the way the story starts off. Since I do not like to give spoilers, I won't say anymore about the book accept you will enjoy it if you can get past Justine Eyre. Her voices for men are horrible. I don't know if I will listen to Book 2 about Grace because in Book 1 her character was very annoying. Will I be able to complete the book listening to her attitude and Justine Eyre's voice.

Ok.

I liked it and it had some fun moments and romance...but I didn't LOVE it. Justine Eyre was terrific...as usual. I will probably go ahead and read the next book about Grace...although I found her character irritating. If you can get on sale...or in the romance package..as I did. Romance package is worth it! Let's you take risks on new narrators and authors.

Good plot but Not sizzling

This book had a good plot and likable characters. The passion element was lacking in my opinion. The bedroom scenes were not even a minute long with no foreplay. So if you’re looking for a “sizzling“ novel as it is advertised, you’ll be disappointed.

Good plot awful narrator

If you can ignore a not great narrator, this is a fun read. Above average romance. Action, spying, love, and the highlands. Good characters. Enjoyable read.

First-time for a twist of spy and romance

I usually go for time travel historical romance, but this was different, not to bad.

couldn't finish.

I couldn't finish. the narrator's voice was incredibly annoying, it sounded like she was whining while she read, and each sentence had the same phrasing. I couldn't concentrate on the story, though it was also a bit dragging after the middle of the book.
