Add To

Blistering seduction meets international intrigue in the Highlands as a veteran spy infiltrates the court of Mary, Queen of Scots. There he matches wits against a tantalizing enemy: his new wife.

Simon Marcheford wants nothing more than to settle down on the land bestowed upon him by the English crown. Queen Elizabeth, however, is not about to let her best spy retire so easily. Simon will have his reward, she decrees, after he completes one last mission in Scotland. But no sooner has he sussed out a diabolical plot up North than Queen Mary weds him to her cousin—an exquisite beauty with troubled, soulful eyes—and orders Simon to watch her every move.

Aimee de Verris is no spy. But her life may depend on becoming one. Banished from the French court by Catherine de Medici, Aimee finds herself tasked with reporting on Queen Mary’s activities in Scotland, where she’s unnerved by the frigid weather and brutish customs. Worst of all, Aimee’s been married off to a most uncouth lout. But when murder strikes, she learns to appreciate Simon’s talent for shielding her with every inch of his muscular frame. If Aimee desires her husband, perhaps she could trust him—or even love him.


Sir Simon Marcheford is one of Queen Elizabeth's most trusted spies,  but he wants nothing more than to retire to his estate with his little sister.  Elizabeth however has other ideas.  Refusing his queen is too dangerous to consider. 
Aimee de Verris has lived most of her life at the French court.  When she is caught in an indiscretion and sent away she is devastated.  What she is sent to do could easily cost her her life. 
The Scottish court of Mary, Queen of Scots is rife with schemes and political intrigue.  A very dangerous place, especially for those with an ulterior motive for being there. 
An exciting adventure in a political minefield.  Our hero is brave and honorable (for a spy). Our heroine is a confused innocent, in way out of her depth. 
The story is fascinating and will keep you turning the pages until the end. 
A thoroughly enjoyable book.
