My Highland Spy
By Victoria Roberts
September 2, 2014
This Highland Laird won’t bow to the Crown
Laird Ruairi Sutherland refuses to send his only son away to be educated by the English. And he most definitely will not appear in Edinburgh to pay homage to a liege who has no respect for Scotland. So he does what any laird would do—he lies to the king. The last thing Ruairi expects is a beautiful English governess to appear on his doorstep.
But this lady spy might make him…
Lady Ravenna Walsingham is a seasoned spy who is sent to the savage Highlands to uncover a nefarious plot against the Crown. Playing the part of an English governess—a job easier said than done—she infiltrates the home of Laird Sutherland, a suspected conspirator.
If she doesn’t betray him first
Ravenna soon discovers that the only real threat Sutherland poses is to her heart. But will the proud Highland laird ever forgive her when he discovers the woman he loves in an English spy?

Thank you so much for having me today at Joyfully Reviewed.
Why spies? They’re so much fun to write!
My new Highland Spies series revolves around four English sisters and their escapades in the Scottish Highlands. The first book in the series, My Highland Spy, is about Lady Ravenna Walsingham who is a spy for the Crown. Funny thing is… Ravenna’s three younger sisters have no clue what she does. In fact, Ravenna’s sister believes Ravenna is selling herself because their uncle has stolen the Walsingham family fortune. Boy was her sister ever wrong!
I’ve always loved a good spy story, and I never tire of James Bond. But I think arse-kicking heroines make the best spies, especially when they’re sent to the Scottish Highlands to spy on the wild lairds. These proper English ladies are in for a big surprise when they come face to face with the burly Scots.
Don’t get me wrong. These women can handle themselves, but the poor Scots have no idea what to make of them, especially when the women have an “I take no prisoners” attitude. Little did the Walsingham sister’s know that they’ve captured the hearts of these Highland men. Will the ladies fulfill their duty to the Crown, or will love conquer all?
What do you love most about spies? Sourcebooks will give away one paperback copy of My Highland Spy (US and Canada only, please.)

“Roberts’ newest features a surprise-laden, quick-paced plot, replete with unconventional and fiercely independent characters. Her lyrical prose grabs readers’ attention, and the high level of emotional tension simply adds to the depth of the story. This book begs to be read and reread.”
