Overview

All her life, Josselin Ancrum has been trained for combat, hoping to exact vengeance for her heroic mother, who was killed fighting the English. When asked to spy for the Scottish Queen, Jossy joyfully accepts. But when a handsome stranger rescues her from sudden danger, his charm distracts her from her mission.

On the surface, Drew MacAdam may appear to be nothing more than a carefree champion, but his heart harbors a dark secret: This Highland hero is actually a skilled English soldier with a hatred for war and for the Scottish. Yet from the moment he meets the feisty Jossy, he's captured by her fiercely loyal heart. He's determined the honey-haired lass will be his ultimate prize - until the tragedy of their entwined legacies is revealed. Are these star-crossed lovers to be divided by their pasts? Or will they be...seduced by destiny?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Morgan follows 2010's Captured by Desire with a delightful romance set in 16th-century Scotland. Josselin Ancrum is a battle-trained Scottish maiden raised by warriors. Traveling to Edinburgh to witness the arrival of Mary, Queen of Scots, she quickly rouses trouble with her sharp tongue and is rescued by Drew MacAdam, an Englishman masquerading as a Highlander. Averse to fighting, Drew takes to the golf links, defending England by winning Scottish purses. Josselin loves Drew's charm and willingness to spring for beer, but worries their mutual attraction will distract from her new, secret mission to serve the queen. Despite being "the worst spy ever," she takes up her sword in defense of Queen Mary while Drew cheers her on. Readers weary of Scottish romance clichés will be thrilled to see these cheeky commoners trading blows and puns far away from drafty castles. (Mar.)
