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?

I really enjoyed this one! MY HIGHLAND SPY is another winner fromr talented author Victoria Roberts. This lovely historical romance easily captured my interest from start to finish.
I love Highland romance and in my opinion this is one of the best. The story features Lady Ravenna Walsingham, who happens to be an English spy, and Laird Ruairi Sutherland. It was a great setup. Ruairi is suspected of conspiring against the English Crown and Ravenna is sent to check out the situation. She arrives under the guise of an English tutor for Ruairi's young son, Torquil.
Ruairi doesn't trust the English, but he isn't involved in any conspiracies either. However, he's not going to hand over his only son to them. So the two of them get off to a rather rocky start. Yet, there was that pesky attraction that neither of them could deny.
So this was a love story that began with deception between them. There were some misconceptions from both sides. A lot of guilt, and plenty of intense moments. Oh and by the way, the plot took a few turns as it ended up that there was an actual conspiracy somewhere in the works.
I would call this one an outstanding Scottish romance. It was tightly written and flowed smoothly, making it a pleasure to read. The writing was wonderfully descriptive, drawing me right into the scene and making it a satisfying read.
All in all, it's a fantastic book that I would recommend to everyone.
