He was a Highland rogue—
wicked with a bow and just as wicked with the ladies.

Declan MacGregor hadn’t a care in the world beyond finding a soft bed and willing woman…until he had to escort Lady Liadain Campbell to the English court. The woman needles him at every turn, but he can’t just abandon her to that vipers’ nest without protection.

She never asked for a bodyguard…

Liadain wasn’t thrilled to be left in the care of her clan’s archrival. It was as if the man never had a lady tell him no before! And yet as whispers of treason swirl through the court and the threat of danger grows ever sharper, her bitter enemy soon becomes the only one she can trust…

My Review:

Victoria Roberts is quickly becoming one of my favorite Highlander romance authors. Her first book, Temptation in a Kilt, was excellent and this one was just as good.

Liadain was amazing. She was one of the more smart and strong heroines that I have come across in a while. She was strong-willed and stubborn but with a purpose. I loved her. And I very rarely say that about heroines. Declan was a bit of a conundrum for me. He was a bit immature at times and I wanted to tell him to grow up. But he grew on me as the book went on. I loved that he was a bit rakish. They are my favorite.

I loved this book. I read it while I was all fluish so I am surprised that I remember so much of it. I loved the slow burn of the romance. It wasn't insta-love. Both characters were on a journey and had real obstacles to their happy ending. They also had really strong chemistry even when they were bickering like an old married couple. There were also nice bits of action as well. I can't wait for the next book because I have a feeling this series is only going to get better.
