Publisher’s Description:

A refined Scottish courtier. A rugged British spy. And an affair that will change the course of history. Everything changes when the shocking deception is revealed in this seductive novel from USA Today bestselling author Sharon Cullen.

Ladies in waiting can’t help noticing more than they let on. After so many years at the court of Mary, Queen of Scots, Emma Howard sees quite plainly that the royal couple is anything but happy. Reeling from a failed marriage herself, Emma sympathizes with her beloved queen. But the last thing she wants is for the king to be murdered, let alone to witness the shocking act herself. With her whole world turned upside-down, Emma is saved by the quick thinking of a lowly printer . . . who, unbeknownst to her, is one of England’s most daring spies.

At Queen Elizabeth’s behest, Tristan has been stirring discontent against the Scottish nobility. Now that the king is dead, his mission is even more critical. There’s only one complication: the exquisite courtier who’s unexpectedly fallen under Tristan’s protection. Emma rouses his body and his soul. But after she learns that he’s a traitor, the fate of two nations hangs on her response. Tristan’s prepared to risk his life in exchange for hers. Will Emma do the same for the man she’s come to love?

My Thoughts:

This is book #3 of this series
I have read all of this series and to this reader’s opinion this one is the best one so far. The covers of all three, alone attract the readers attention if they love historical romance. They are very attractive.

Emma Howard is one of Mary, Queen of Scots ladies in Waiting. She is widowed and her marriage was a very unfortunate one. Her deceased husband was not kind and Emma wants no part of a second marriage.

Tristan is not what he seems. Working as a spy for Queen Elizabeth, he is posing as a printer. When he finds Emma, unconscious after the death of Queen Mary’s consort (Husband) he takes her in until she is feeling better.
What does Emma know about the King’s death? Who is responsible and does either she or Tristan know more than they are saying.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4.0 of 5.0 flames. There is an unmistakable attraction between our hero and heroine.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

To set things right, she has to be very wrong…

Former constable Daniel Carlyle hasn’t the foggiest notion how to be a viscount. No one is more shocked than he when his father’s second cousin and his son die on the same day. When a prominent earl offers to guide Daniel through Society and the House of Lords, he’s grateful to have a champion. Things seem to be falling into place when he meets a lovely young woman he intends to make his viscountess. Until he catches her stealing from his mentor. 

The moment Jocelyn Renwick glimpses her family’s stolen heirlooms in the possession of a wealthy earl, she demands their return. He dismissively insists they’ve been in his family for generations, and she privately vows to get them back at any cost. But the law-abiding Lord Carlyle foils her plans, and she reluctantly partners with him to solve the theft of her property. When they discover the earl is up to his ears in criminal acts, he threatens to link Daniel to his gang of thieves. Jocelyn must decide if justice for her family is worth risking a chance at love.

STEALING MOIRRA’S HEART by Suzan Tisdale

Desperate to be free of the pillory, the stranger reluctantly agrees to handfast with Moirra, but refuses to tell her his real name — or much else about his past. He’ll stay only long enough to help her harvest crops in the fall. Two months. And not one day longer. Fate oft has far different plans.
