Kilts and Daggers
Book 2 of the Highland Spies

Ever since Lady Grace Walsingham discovered her uncle and sister are spies for the Crown, she has yearned for adventure. She’s counting the days until she can leave barbaric Scotland behind, even if she must endure Highland captain Fagan Murray’s company for weeks.

Fagan has a simple mission: escort the haughty Lady Grace back to England. But nothing is ever easy. The sharp-tongued woman needles him at every turn. But when a menacing threat follows them on their journey, Fagan’s grudging tolerance for Grace turns to respect…and into a perilous attraction that could seal their fate.

Kilts and Daggers -- Victoria Roberts


KILTS AND DAGGERS by Victoria Roberts is another exciting, adventurous Medieval Scottish Highland Historical Romance. #2 of the “Highland Spies” series, but can be read as a stand alone. But I would suggest Book one, “My Highland Spy”. This is Fagan Murray, Captain of the Murray clan and Lady Grace Walsingham, the Laird’s sister-in-law’s story and what a story!

Fast paced tale of intrigue, adventure, spies,passion,betrayal,and Highland romance. Ms. Roberts is a masterful storyteller and it shines in each of her stories. The vivid descriptions of the Highlands of Scotland just brings this story alive, as does the charismatic, flawed characters. Well written tale with passionate embraces and suspenseful but dangerous adventures. A bit of mystery is thrown into the mix as well. An absolute delight from beginning to the last page. Masterful!! Highly recommended! Fans of Scottish Romance, Historical Romance,Highland warriors, clan wars, dangerous missions, English-Scottish conflict and a deliciously wicked tale are sure to enjoy “Kilts and Daggers”. Don’t miss this one. Can’t wait for the next installment.

The Unlikely Lady (Book 3)

Based on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing


Certain that no man wants a bluestocking for a wife, Miss Jane Lowndes is careful to wield her books and her spectacles as weapons against matrimony. Convincing her ambitious mama that she’s content to stay a spinster is easier said than done, however. It’s a good thing Jane is not above a bit of manufactured scandal if it will keep her from the altar, and the argumentative, contrary Lord Garrett Upton… 


With the war over, Garrett is determined to enjoy his bachelor’s life while he can, even when it means attending a house party in celebration of a friend’s wedding—and suffering Jane’s notorious disdain. But when a masquerade ball leads to a mistaken kiss, he’s surprised to learn that Jane’s bookish exterior hides a truly passionate soul. When two such headstrong people are determined to remain unattached, can love lead to a happy ending?

{Regency Charms}

Book Description (Courtesy of Amazon)

May 5, 2015
Matchmaker Wilhelmina Montgomery helps cupid’s arrow find its mark in the drawing rooms of the Ton, effortlessly pairing even the most unlikely couples for a discreet fee. Perhaps not an appropriate pursuit for a lady…but with an ailing sister to care for, it’s Whimsy’s only hope at securing their future.

Meanwhile, penniless aristocrat Valerian St. David, Earl of Dashwood is society’s favourite matchbreaker; assisting those who want to escape engagement without being sued for breach of promise. Cynical, yes…but with no intention of falling in love himself, Valerian considers himself ideally suited to the role.

And match!
When Whimsy discovers that Valerian has set out to break the very engagement she has been painstakingly arranging, she refuses to allow this mysterious saboteur have his way. Yet she didn’t expect to find the handsome Earl so distractingly alluring. And suddenly, it seems that the Ton’s last two loneliest hearts are in danger of finding their match…in the most inopportune of places.

Instead, her clever characters live out her daydreams because really, who wouldn’t want to dance with a handsome duke or kiss a wicked earl?

Though teaching keeps her grounded, photography, running and writing, counterbalance her wanderlust. Often found with her nose in a book, Anabelle earned her Master’s Degree and is completing her Doctorate Degree in education.

    About this author…
    Loni Flowers

    Loni isn’t like most…
    She doesn’t consider herself the typical writer. She wasn’t an avid reader. And doesn’t have an English or writing degree. In fact, she didn’t grow up with a love of reading or writing at all. Fast forward several years and a few book series later and Loni has become a reading machine. Not giving books their fair chance growing up was something she’s since regretted. After blogging book reviews for a year, Loni stepped out on a limb to try something new: writing a novel. One year later, TAKING CHANCES, was born and she has stopped writing since.
    Residing in Eastern North Carolina with her husband, 2 daughters, and couch-potato dogs, Loni works a full-time professional job during the day and writes in her free time.
    Thriving on finding the tiniest speck of romance in any plot thread, Loni is a firm believer in the happily-ever-after’s. She gets a kick out of taking her characters on a roller-coaster ride of drama-filled emotions and enjoys creating character-driven stories.
    A romance that soothes the soul is her number one priority.
