In this dazzling new novel from bestselling author Vanessa Kelly, the wildest member of Clan Kendrick has found his purpose as a government agent. Now he must also meet his match . . .
Lady Sabrina Bell has never been so embarrassed in her life. Not only did her new suitor fail to appear for their morning rendezvous in Hyde Park, but a thief pushed her into the Serpentine. Being rescued by a burly Highlander just adds to her humiliation. Nor is he content with rescuing her just once. Even when Sabrina travels to Edinburgh as part of King George’s entourage, Graeme Kendrick is there, interfering, exasperating, and so very tempting . . .
Once notorious for being the most unruly Kendrick brother, Graeme now runs dangerous missions for the King’s spymaster. Yet nothing has prepared him for Sabrina. The only child of a wealthy earl, and the pampered goddaughter of the king himself, she is stubborn, impetuous, and far too good for him. He doesn’t deserve her, but he can protect her and then send her safely back home. But the bonny Sassenach has her own ideas—and a plan for seduction that no red-blooded Highlander could resist . . .
Kelly returns to form in the enjoyable, banter-filled third Kendrick Clan Regency romance (after The Highlander's Christmas Bride). Lady Sabrina Bell, King George's goddaughter, designs to meet a suitor in the park at an odd hour, but he stands her up and she is beset by muggers. Luckily, dashing Highlander Graeme Kendrick is there to save her, and thus a friendship is born. Graeme needs a wife like he needs a hole in his head, but the more time he spends with Sabrina the more he's at risk of both, thanks to her alluring beauty and knack for finding trouble. Though Graeme is determined to keep his distance because of his dangerous job as a spy for the crown, Sabrina is determined to make him hers. But the dastardly Marquess of Cringlewood, whom fans will recognize from the previous installment, and the band of thieves Graeme has been assigned to investigate may throw a wrench in her plan. The central couple is delightfully well matched: Graeme is a grump with a heart of gold; Sabrina is a gentle soul with an impressive backbone. Readers will be gratified as the pair navigates their way to a thoroughly satisfying happy ending.

I loved this hook! Graham is yummy when I didn’t want to hit him in the back of the head and Sabrina is a strong woman who finally finds the one man she can love and is hell bent to have him. The dialogue and banter was great and I love the family interaction.
