“Fans of romance with strong, socially progressive heroines will thoroughly enjoy this novel.” ~ Publisher’s Weekly
Mr. & Mrs. Smith meets Outlander in this action-packed Scottish romance where a marriage of convenience leads to secrets that could be deadly.
With two young sons to care for and a large estate to run, John Erskine, the widowed Earl of Mar, needs to remarry as quickly as possible. And beautiful Lady Evelyn Pierrepont would be the perfect match. But there’s more behind the English lass’s calm demeanor than she’s letting on, including a smoldering allure not even John can ignore.
Evelyn has no desire to wed the rugged Scottish earl, but at least she’ll be able to continue her work as a spy-as long as her husband never finds out. Yet the more time Evelyn spends with John and his boys, the fonder she grows of their little family, and the last thing she wants to do is put them in danger. As alliances shift and enemies draw closer, soon everything they hold dear is at risk: their lands, their love, and their very lives.

“Do you want to know what I think?”
Watching her gaze, he took that very finger, drew it into his mouth, and licked it. “Aye.”
“There’s more lying under the surface with you, whether you realize it or not. I saw it in your eyes the first time we met.”
“But you’re who I desire now,” he whispered. Indeed, this woman was too perceptive. But two could play her game. He slid his hand around the back of her neck and captured her lips. And this time he didn’t toy about. Taking command, he devoured her mouth and showed her exactly how passionate a kiss could be.
“See, lass?” he growled, forcing himself to ease away.
Her lips parted as she leaned toward him as if asking for more.
He raised her fingers upward. Watching her, he kissed each knuckle, slowly, seductively, showing her just how much he looked forward to their wedding night.
