My Rating: 4 Roses

An enjoyable, sweet romance, My Highland Spy was a wonderful read. I really liked this book. From the likable character, to the sweet romance, this book was lovely.

Ravenna was a good heroine. She was strong, clever, protective of her family, and a kind person in general. Though she served as the king's spy, she was first and foremost loyal to the people she cared about. I thought she was a great character and I really liked her.

Ruairi was wonderful. He was so sweet and totally devoted to the people he cared about, whether it was his son, Ravenna, or the clan he was so protective of. He was a sweetie and I really liked him.

The romance was lovely. Ravenna and Ruairi were great together.They both loved each other unreservedly, even with all the obstacles between them. And, of course, there was plenty of chemistry between them, with lots of steaminess going on. I thought they were great together.

The plot was well paced and, though I didn't get totally hooked for some reason, I was kept interested the entire way through. There were a couple of surprises along the way. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.

My Highland Spy was a wonderful historical romance. It was a sweet, enjoyable read that I really liked. Romance lovers, you might want to check this book out.
