Excerpt:

She waited a minute before finally pursuing the figure. As she stepped around the stable, a hand covered her mouth and pulled her against a hard chest. She used the move she made against Javier just a few days earlier, jabbing her right elbow into the man’s gut. He grunted, but no relaxing of muscles occurred. Great.

“Shh, lass. It’s only me.”

She stilled. She’d know Torr’s voice anywhere. Did he realize what had happened? She bit his hand.

“Ach.” His hold loosened a fraction.

She turned her head and whispered. “I think someone has betrayed you.”

He leaned his head down and whispered in her ear, his breath sending shivers over her skin. “I know.”

He knew? Of course! That’s why he was here. The man was always one step ahead of her. No wonder he was laird.

“Why do I always find ye about at night?”

She glanced up at his face, so near to her own, before she quickly looked away. “I don’t sleep well at night when not at home. I haven’t adjusted to Gealach yet.”

He stared hard at her as if trying to decide if she lied. “The question is, lass, what is yer relationship with the traitor?”

“What?” An uneasy shiver raced up her spine as he held her in a tight grip. “Let me go.”

“Not until ye tell me what ye were doing with Graham.”

What she was — he had to be kidding. “I wasn’t doing anything with him. I saw him sneaking about and confronted him.”

Torr spun her around so fast, the world took a moment to right itself. Once again his hands held her shoulders tightly. “What were ye thinking? A traitor who is caught is dangerous!”

The moon’s light clearly illuminated his face, and she swallowed her angry retort. Concern shone in his eyes beneath his furrowed brow. Why did he have to be such a good guy? She lowered her gaze to project meekness. “I didn’t know he was a traitor until after he became angry.”

Torr lifted her chin with his finger. His amused smirk gentled his face. “Ye made him angry? Then it is not only me ye frustrate?”

She shook her head, her throat dry. His gaze rested on her lips, which brought to mind his last kiss.

His grin faded as his thumb stroked her lower lip.

She took a deep breath in a vain attempt to still the fluttering in her stomach. It didn’t work. It only made her more aware of the scent of the man holding her spellbound. Wool, lye, and ale filled her nostrils as his head lowered.

Her lips parted in anticipation, and his tongue entered her mouth, tasting her with confidence. It was not the gentleness of their first kiss nor the demand of the second. He simply took and coaxed her to do the same, an invitation she couldn’t ignore.

My thoughts:

ON HIGHLAND TIME by Lexi Post is an intriguing and interesting Time Travel, Scottish Romance set in 1306 Scotland.  Interesting concept the “Time Weavers, Inc.” group, Diana was sent back through time to find the culprit who changed history and set things back to rights. A minor clan chief, Torr,  must die in battle as he originally had, but can Diana allow that to happen? Will her feelings get in the way? Suspenseful,  sexy,  passionate, with a few twists and turns,  and a HEA, which leaves the concept of more to come.  Interesting characters. The storyline was unpredictable and intriguing to me. I can’t wait to read more from Lexi Post.I received a complimentary copy,  however,  all opinions are my own.

Kilts and Daggers -- Victoria Roberts

MY THOUGHTS:

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.

GUEST BLOGGER with #Giveaway~ MY HIGHLAND SPY~ VICTORIA ROBERTS

Please help us welcome today’s guest…

VICTORIA ROBERTS, author of MY HIGHLAND SPY…

My Highland Spy (1)

MBA&M: What is the allure of writing about Scottish Highlanders tales of romance, and intrigue?

Thank you so much for having me today.
I can only speak from my own experience, and I have to say that I’ve been drawn to the Scottish Highlands ever since I picked up a Hannah Howell novel. There is something about the lands, the struggles, the triumphs, that is beyond words. It’s a feeling, a sense of honor that these men fought so hard for freedom and justice. The country is so rich in history that I can’t help but write this genre. Scotland, kilted men, bagpipes… What’s nae to love, eh?

MBA&M: Tell us in your own words about MY HIGHLAND SPY?

Lady Ravenna Walsingham has been an English spy for many years. When she’s sent to the Scottish Highlands to discover whether or not a certain Highland laird conspires against the Crown, she’s not exactly ecstatic about the assignment. She’s to masquerade as a governess for the laird’s son and thinks Highlanders are nothing but a bunch of kilted barbarians.
Laird Ruairi Sutherland lies to the king and is surprised when an English governess shows up on his doorstep. He has enough troubles between his father-in-law and the other lairds that want to raise arms against the English. The last he needs is a woman—an English woman—under his roof.

Sparks fly, tensions rise, but love is definitely in the air…

MBA&M: List five things readers may or may not find fascinating about you as a writer?

1. I don’t outline. I know the first and last line of my manuscript and go. It drives my critique partner crazy, but she loves me.
2. I have a full-time day job and write before and after work. I also have a husband of 21 years and two kids (13 and 9.)
3. I can’t listen to music when I write. Must. Be. Dead. Silent.
4. I finished my first manuscript (Temptation in a Kilt) the end of August, pitched in October, landed an agent and a series deal in April. I know. That doesn’t sound real, but I’m living proof that dreams can come true.
5. The first time I met Nora Roberts I thanked her. When she asked me why, I said, “Thanks to you, I’m right next to you on the shelf.” (Roberts-Roberts) She laughed and said, “I’m glad I could help you out.”

Thanks so much for spending time with me today.

Reviews…

My Highland Spy (1)“An exciting Highland tale of intrigue, betrayal, and love.”
—Hannah Howell, New York Times bestselling author of Highland Master

“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.”
