“A master of Highland romance.”—Becky Condit of USA Today on My Highland Spy
It’s been three years since Lady Elizabeth Walsingham ended her childish crush on Laird Ian Munro, the fierce Highlander who scared everyone but her. She’s a grown woman now, heading to London to find a proper English gentleman. But when the wild Highland laird walks through the door, she’s that breathless youth all over again.
Ian tries hard to avoid the young lass who’s confounded him for years. But now that they’re attending court, he must keep watch on her night and day. Danger is at every turn and advisors to the Crown are being murdered. Ian soon realizes the girl he’s been protecting is a beautiful lady who needs his help, almost as much as he needs her.

Praise for My Highland Spy:
“One of the best... an outstanding Scottish romance.”—Romance Reviews, 5 Stars
“An exciting Highland tale of intrigue, betrayal, and love.”—Hannah Howell, New York Times bestselling author of Highland Master
In a refreshing change of scenery, Roberts's Highlands romance takes place largely at England's Hampton Court Palace, where the politics and suspicious niceties of the courtiers replace battles among the heather. Lady Elizabeth Walsingham believes she is finally over her childhood crush on Laird Ian Munroe, a close ally of her brothers-in-law Laird Sutherland and Capt. Fagan Murray (who wooed her sisters in Kilts and Daggers and My Highland Spy, respectively). She's determined to stop mooning over him and join King James's court to claim her position among the other nobles. But as Ian realizes that Elizabeth has grown into a woman, he resolves to pursue her and to protect her from the oily attentions of a Shakespearean actor and a fawning earl. Unsurprisingly, Elizabeth welcomes his clumsy, if well-meaning, attentions and refocuses her attention on solving the mystery of her uncle's death, unwittingly joining her family's tradition of spying on behalf of the crown. Unfortunately, the story is slow paced and predictable, but series readers will enjoy the long-awaited pairing of Ian and Elizabeth, who strike sparks whenever they touch.
