Synopsis via Goodreads:

A fierce Highland lass puts her life—and her heart—in the hands of a dashing British spy in this exhilarating romance from the USA Today bestselling author of Wed to a Spy.
Rose Turner’s mother sent her to the court of Mary, Queen of Scots, to give her a better life. Raised with rowdy brothers in a notorious border clan, Rose has plenty of experience fighting and thieving—and practically none when it comes to matters of decorum and discretion. Without a single ally, she has little hope of making a good marriage to salvage her family’s reputation. But after overhearing several influential lords plotting to murder the King of Scotland, Rose meets a man after all: a handsome spy trying to shield her from danger.
As one of the Queen Elizabeth’s top agents, Will Sheffield has come up north to keep a close eye on the goings-on at Mary’s court. A consummate professional, Will notices Rose’s presence at the secret meeting . . . and he’s not the only one. The wild, na├»ve beauty has made a fearsome enemy—and only Will can keep her safe. But after an attempt on Rose’s life pulls them tantalizingly close, Will faces an agonizing choice between professional loyalty or powerful passion.

My two cents:

I think I liked this even more than the first book in the trilogy/series (?), Wed to a Spy. Rose is the kind of main character that I love. The one that bucks the norm and doesn't fit what the rest of society deems as proper. She was straightforward and no nonsense and it was so refreshing. Will is a swoon inducing love interest and I just couldn't get enough. 

I loved the intrigue in Mary's court and how strong Rose stayed from the moment she accidentally stumbled upon the plot until the dramatic conclusion. Her romance with Will was sweet and sexy and I loved how much they loved one another (even when they wouldn't admit it). Rose's family were also amazing! Do they have a series? If not they need one! I'm wanting more of those border clan brothers of hers.

I'm totally hooked on this series and can't wait for the next installment (it releases tomorrow!!) and to learn more about the mysterious Tristan. And I just learned Emma is his love interest! Yay! The little I saw of her in Bound to a Spy made me think she is a character I'm going to adore.


Read my review of Wed to a Spy, the first book in the All the Queen's Spies series.
