For fans of Maya Banks and Monica McCarty, the Highland Knights series continues as a tight-knit band of Scottish mercenaries make trouble on the mean streets of London . . . and under the sheets with England’s proper young women.

As the secret author of racy romances, Lady Esme Hawkins goes to great lengths to protect her family’s honor. Which is why she carefully disguises herself before entering a notorious bordello to do research. But when Esme comes face-to-face with a brooding Highland bodyguard, she can’t easily refuse a harmless kiss . . . a kiss that inflames desires ripped from the pages of her novels. Acting on them, however, would risk revealing Esme’s identity—and the fact that she’s engaged to another man.

As a Highland Knight sworn to protect the crown, Camden McLeod never expected to follow his client into a bordello—nor could he anticipate meeting a bright, innocent lass with lush lips and eyes the color of the sea. Instantly, Cam knows he must possess her. But to do so, he’ll need to give up his rakish ways, embrace his role as heir to his despised father, and snuff out a deadly threat to his brothers in arms. By comparison, winning Esme away from her insipid fiancĂ© will be pure pleasure.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

An amusing, sexy historical romance read, filled with flowing descriptions on every page. I enjoyed this book immensely due to Esme's forthrightness when dealing with Camden.

Camden is really remarkable in how he deals with the resistant Esme and all her secret's. I loved the meeting between them in the bordello and it gets better throughout the story as he manipulates her to get his way with her.

Esme has secrets that she is hiding from everyone not only about her writing but other deep dark secrets. Her character is written brilliantly in the manner of which it expands throughout the book. I like her timidness, her strength to quietly take what she wants and her awkwardness in society. Don't get me wrong and think she's boring. Oh no not boring at all. She was fun to get to know and I loved how she dealt with people and especially Camden's personal problems.

Readers will love this story as it incorporates humor, extremely hot love scenes, anger, love, family and forgiveness in well thought out flowing dialogue.

I give it 5 STARS.

USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Haymore is the author of sexy historical and contemporary romance.

You can find Jennifer in Southern California trying to talk her husband into yet another trip to England, helping her three children with homework while brainstorming a new five-minute dinner menu, or crouched in a corner of the local bookstore writing her next novel.
