My Highland Spy
By Victoria Roberts

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?

PLEASE WELCOME VICTORIA TO BOOKHOUNDS!
1. Do you have a secret talent?
Thank you so much for having me today. I do have another talent, but it’s not a secret. I’ve played the electric guitar for years. I have a custom Ace Frehley Les Paul and a Marshall amp.
2. Is there a song that really reminds you of your book?
I have to write in dead silence so there’s not any particular song that reminds me of my book. But every time I hear Celtic music, I long for Scotland.
3. What was the easiest thing about writing this book?
I don’t think there’s anything easy about writing, at least with my muse, but the descriptions of Scotland’s beauty comes from the heart in all my books.
4. Is there a word you love to use?
Aye… Arse. I love to hear the Scots say the words with that lovely brogue.
5. Any real or imaginary pets?
Our family has a mixed lab named Zoe. She was rescued from a shelter by my daughter six years ago.
