"A little bit of English, a little bit of Scotland, a pinch of humor…spies and adventure, all mixed together, making this the perfect recipe for a highly entertaining story."—Clue Review
Ever since Lady Grace Walsingham discovered her uncle and sister are spies for the Crown, she has yearned for adventure. She's counting the days until she can leave barbaric Scotland behind, even if she must endure the Highland captain's company for weeks.
The Laird's Captain of the Guard, Fagan Murray has a simple mission: escort the haughty Lady Grace back to England. But nothing is ever easy. The sharp-tongued woman needles him at every turn. But when a menacing threat follows them on their journey, Fagan's grudging tolerance for Grace turns to respect…and into a perilous attraction that could seal their fate.
Opposites and enemies attract in this Scottish Historical Romance perfect for fans of Lynsay Sands, Suzanne Enoch, and Hannah Howell.

In My Highland Spy, Lady Ravenna Walsingham, an English spy, paired off with Laird Ruairi Sutherland. Her marriage leaves a vacancy that her sister, Grace, tries to fill, but Grace soon learns that spying is a career path not undertaken lightly, no matter how exciting and important it seems. Her harshest critic is Fagan Murray, Laird Suther land's captain, who despairs of her indiscreet words and her terrible aim with a knife. In a classic story of disdain leading to love, Fagan and Grace's banter strengthens their connection, and as Fagan escorts Grace back to England on a trail rife with mercenaries and British troops, she begins to wonder why she ever thought she could settle for an Englishman when there's a very fine Scot to be had. Grace and Fagan make visiting the Highlands worth the trip. Jill Marsal, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.
