Deception of a Highlander

Deception of a Highlander by Madeline Martin

Scottish Romance doesn't get much steamier—or more dangerous—than a spy hunting her quarry, and losing her heart to him instead. 

To pay a seemingly impossible debt, Mariel Brandon has become a spy for Aaron, one of England's deadliest minds. Aaron's latest mission for the sharp-witted and daring Mariel is to find two people in a heavily fortified castle on the Isle of Skye, a castle headed by the clan MacDonald and the powerful Kieran. Mariel is to seduce Kieran and get him to take her to Skye. If she succeeds, Aaron promises to let Mariel's young brother go, and to free both of them from their debt. If she fails, her brother will die. 

What she doesn't count on is craving Kieran MacDonald almost immediately upon meeting him. Now Mariel must keep a secret from Kieran—one that could get them both killed—as she tries to form a plan that will save her brother, get her out from under Aaron's thumb once and for all, and keep her in Kieran's strong arms forever.

This review is from: Deception of a Highlander (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*
Wow, that's the first word that comes to mind after reading this book. I was highly impressed and am so looking forward to reading more by this author! The story was captivating, sexy, romantic and had some great action in it.
"Ye're a strong wee thing. I've half a mind to let ye toss a few cabers at the next games."
I love the Scottish accent and if you're anything like me, when you read books like this, you hear that accent in your mind as you read the words. Kieran and Mariel are just amazing characters. I felt connected to them in a way that sucked me into their story. I enjoy Highland books, but this really is just a wonderfully written story. Some historicals get slow and drag down in pace, and are too long. This book was just perfect. The pace was kept smooth and flowy, the story had no gaps and I read the last page with a big, bright smile on my face. I look forward to more from this author.
