"A little bit of English, a little bit of Scotland, a pinch of humor...spies and adventure, all mixed together, making this the perfect recipe for a highly entertaining story."--Clue Review
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 the Highland captain's company for weeks.
The Laird's Captain of the Guard, Fagan Murray 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.
Opposites and enemies attract in this Scottish Historical Romance perfect for fans of Lynsay Sands, Suzanne Enoch, and Hannah Howell.

Romance: The girl next door
Former teenage lovers reunite in Let Me Love You Again, the second book in Anna DeStefano’s Echoes of the Heart series. When entrepreneur Oliver Bowman’s foster father suffers a heart attack, Oliver returns home and reconnects with the loving couple that raised him. Although he’s been sending them money to aid in raising more foster children, Oliver hasn’t been back since leaving at 18 after a disastrous, drunken night. But when he visits, he learns that Selena Rosenthal, the girl he once gave his heart to, is living next door with her young daughter. Could the girl be his daughter, or is she simply another reason to ignore his renewed attraction to Selena? As a single mother dealing with a difficult divorce, Selena shouldn’t be feeling so much for Oliver, despite the fact that they were each other’s solace as teens. Trusting that good things can happen is hard for this couple, yet necessary if they have any hope of a future together. DeStefano has written an emotional family drama—readers should have a hankie at the ready.
A Highland captain of the guard tames an English lady in the second installment of Victoria Roberts’ Highland Spies series, Kilts and Daggers. Lady Grace Walsingham visits Scotland for her sister’s wedding, and Grace intends to stay in the Highlands for a few more weeks while her betrothed, a nobleman, returns to London. However, this means she will have to put up with a man who constantly gets under her skin: her new brother-in-law’s captain of the guard. Fagan Murray can’t help but needle the English miss who’s always looking down her pretty nose at him, but he must stay close and protect her. This closeness creates an unwanted but simmering attraction that only heats up further when Fagan is ordered to escort Grace back to London. The journey gives both a better appreciation of each other and their growing passion. While Grace’s future now seems tied to the Scottish soldier, a new danger means she and Fagan may have no future at all. This pleasing tale of two sparring lovers opening their hearts is full of fun and adventure.
