  • I m Hooked again.This book takes you on a emotional roller coaster Telling you tales not only about the horrific past each character went through but also how they come to work and support each other together In the beginning, it felt as though Connor was using the girls as his pawn to help him accomplish his mission for King James, so that his home, Urguhart Castle held in the King s possession would be return to him.Selfish Not The story further unravels to show all of the girls except Ariana, [...]

  • 3 starsThis is my first Madeline Martin books and I grabbed it not only because the promise of man in kilt, but women spies in the highland The last I read this kind of story was Monica McCarty s The Ghost, so I really curious to figure this one Highland Spy set in early 1605 England with King James on the throne Connor Grant, heir to fallen Urquhart castle was tasked to recruit and train fallen women of the court and be spies for the crown The web of women spies here were totally different from [...]


  • I am voluntarily leaving a review of an eARC that I received from NetGalley and the publisher I liked this book, I was expecting a sort of Point of No Return type story and while there were some similar aspects between this book and that movie, this was definitely it s own story This is a very hard book to review without totally spoiling the story, so I am going to just give the basic premise of the story.Ariana has been supporting herself by cheating at cards since her parents and her brother p [...]


  • I have to say, I really rather enjoyed this one, provided by the publisher in return for a review As well as having two solid protagonists and a well rounded group of supporting characters, it had a dynamic, and pretty well thought out plot with a couple of fun twists and turns.The hero and heroine are fairly well matched Neither were really sparklingly attractive HR characters that made you quiver at the knees or sigh in sheer joy, but neither were they annoying or unrealistic The one real crit [...]


  • This book offered up a mixture of adventure and intrigue I loved the Charlie s Angels in the medieval highlands vibe of the story It was interesting to watch the various characters bring their personal skill sets along, in addition to acquiring physical fighting skills Throw in plenty of emotional baggage and surprise blurred lines between enemies and allies and you get a satisfying romantic thriller I can t wait to see whose story comes next in this series.I voluntarily read an advanced reading [...]

  • Ariana Fitzroy plays cards to support herself and her household Only she doesn t do it well Connor Grant works for the king and is looking for another girl He sees her, watches her and knows she will do nicely.This is a very powerful and complex story I was amazed at the things the ladies, could and did do There is death, betrayal, intrigue and daring in this wonderful tale The characters are so life like and determined They have to be because they all are trained in combat, they are all fallen [...]


  • From page one I LOVED this book Picture a room crowded with tables of card players and your attention is drawn to her because she s cheating and because there s something about her that can t be ignored Perhaps an air of desperation, her beauty, or her uncanny way to fool all others at the table Ariana is all of these things and .Connor needs another girl for his circle of spies But they need to be woman down on their luck so he can take them and train them to be assassins, or spies, whichever i [...]

  • Unusual storyline.A Laird without his home, women with no protection, find training and a life as spies for the King Only one is an assassin Betrayal is the motive Interwoven is a love story Excellent plot that moves quickly with twists and turns.


  • While a historical romance, this book is nothing like the genre You have the enigmatic Scotsman Connor Grant recruiting ladies from polite society to do things that most would not dream of in the time Training physically to fight and defend themselves, learning languages to blend into different crowds, disguises, dresses and costumes, it s almost as much fun for the reader as it is for the characters to undergo the transformation.The story itself, has two main characters who were broken in their [...]


  • I loved this story The idea of female spies intrigued me Ariana is a strong woman who has seen better days She accepts Connor s offer to train and this leads to mistrust, learning, and love It was a fun read, and I look forward to the next in the series.I purchased this book, and this is my unsolicited review.


  • Exciting and unpredictable Woah what a plot twist Without giving any spoilers this book had me guessing from beginning to end It s so refreshing to read a book and have no sweet clue what is going to happen next The characters were great and the storyline was fun Loved the writing and the story moved at a pretty good pace.


  • I was very intrigued by this series and the thought of Mercenary Maidens ruined and fallen women forced into the life of a spy for the crown and king As I listened to the story, the team of spies was definitely the most intriguing aspect These women were trained in combat, interrogation sort of , disguise acting, seduction, and how to get out of sticky situations using their wits and, at times, drugs.Connor Grant was conscripted as a spy and assassin for the king after a tragedy occurred in his [...]
