 He may be her fiercest ally…or a scoundrel waiting to betray her.

Johanna Templeton is on a life-and-death quest. Swept into an intrigue that rivals the tales she pens, she joins forces with a Highland rogue to find the treasure that will save her kidnapped niece—a prize the Scot seeks for reasons that have nothing to do with ransom. Engaging the Highlander in a sizzling battle of the sexes, Johanna shields her heart. 

Connor MacMasters, spy for Queen Victoria, is a man on a mission—keep a legendary gemstone from an evil man. Trailing an American novelist who holds the key to the treasure should’ve been simple, but Johanna awakens feelings he’d long thought dead. Torn between duty and desire, he wants her in his bed, but loving her would be a fool’s game. Blasted shame his heart doesn’t agree.


This is a wonderful Victorian,  adventure romance. 
Miss Johanna Templeton is an American and an author.  She came to London to care for her dying sister and her daughter.  Now her brother in law and niece have disappeared while on holiday in Scotland, and a ransom has been demanded. 
Connor MacMasters is following the associate of a known smuggler of antiquities.  She is putting herself in grave danger dealing with unscrupulous people.  He needs to put a stop to what she is doing. 
This is an absolutely fascinating story.  Our frustrated heroine is trying to deal with a man who insists he knows best.  She doesn't trust him, because he is hiding something.  Our hero has his own agenda and reasons for the way he is bullying her. 
The characters are fun and at times maddening.  A book you will not be able to put down once you start.  I loved it. 



Award-winning author Tara Kingston writes historical romance laced with intrigue, danger, and adventures of the heart. A Southern-belle-out-of-water in a quaint Pennsylvania town, she lives her own love story with her real-life hero and a pair of deceptively innocent-looking kitties in a cozy Victorian. The mother of two sons, Tara’s a former librarian whose love of books is evident in her popping-at-the-seams bookcases. It goes without saying that Tara’s husband is thankful for the invention of digital books, thereby eliminating the need for yet another set of shelves. When she’s not writing, reading, or burning dinner, Tara enjoys movie nights, cycling, hiking, DIY projects, collecting dolls, and cheering on her favorite football team.
