A fierce Highland lass puts her life—and her heart—in the hands of a dashing British spy in this exhilarating romance from the USA Today bestselling author of Wed to a Spy.
Rose Turner’s mother sent her to the court of Mary, Queen of Scots, to give her a better life. Raised with rowdy brothers in a notorious border clan, Rose has plenty of experience fighting and thieving—and practically none when it comes to matters of decorum and discretion. Without a single ally, she has little hope of making a good marriage to salvage her family’s reputation. But after overhearing several influential lords plotting to murder the King of Scotland, Rose meets a man after all: a handsome spy trying to shield her from danger.
As one of the Queen Elizabeth’s top agents, Will Sheffield has come up north to keep a close eye on the goings-on at Mary’s court. A consummate professional, Will notices Rose’s presence at the secret meeting . . . and he’s not the only one. The wild, naïve beauty has made a fearsome enemy—and only Will can keep her safe. But after an attempt on Rose’s life pulls them tantalizingly close, Will faces an agonizing choice between professional loyalty or powerful passion.

This dramatic sequel to Wed to a Spy is filled with espionage, intrigue, and heady sexual tension. When fierce Highland lass Rose Turner enters Holyrood Palace through the cellar door, she only expects to find relief from the frigid winter cold, not to become an undiscovered witness to a plot to kill the king. English spy Lord William Sheffield, also lurking in the cellar, sees Rose but can't help her without giving himself away. When he realizes she left her shawl behind during her hasty getaway, he knows it's only a matter of time before the treasonous men become aware that she'd been present, so he makes her acquaintance with the goal of providing protection. Will is captivated by the passionate, impulsive redhead. As the assassins close in on her and King Darnley unceasingly makes unwanted advances, Rose and Will spend a lot of time together, and she falls for the handsome, attentive nobleman, although she's sure there's more to him than he's letting on. This tender story will turn new readers into Cullen fans, and they'll be eager to pick up the next book and find out what happens with the regicide plot.

Another Winning Romantic Suspense by Ms. Cullen!
I am “sold” on this author’s stories…they just keep getting better and better! I loved this strong heroine who does not suffer fools and has more bravery than she ought. Rose is a redhead from a border rieving family and is sent to the Scottish Queen Mary’s court to “find a worthy husband” and she finds it distasteful with all the court posturing, secrets, lies and intrigue. But she meets someone she can get excited about who is “not as he seems”—Will Sheffield, a spy for the English court to find out what the Scottish Queen is about. Rose and Will overhear a conversation by a group of unscrupulous men, which puts Rose in grave danger and forces Will to protect her. The rest of this love story I will not give away here but readers will not be disappointed. It is another “winner” by Ms. Cullen.
