RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS:
Sandy Blair has just officially become my favorite author. THIEF IN A KILT is wonderful, and everyone should run out and buy it as soon as they read this review.
Ian Mackay is the handsomest man in the whole world. He is a scoundrel and has quite the reputation with the ladies, but he knows how to calm even the most fidgety of the lasses and looks quite beautiful while he does it. He takes one look at Katherine Campbell and he knows that he wants to have her, even as he fights with himself because her stories do not add up. He wants to believe her, but, it is his duty to protect his King and he will go to any and all lengths to do that, even if it means stopping the one woman that he thinks he can fall in love with—even if it means he has to kill her.
Kate Templeton takes one look at Ian Mackay and knows that she is in trouble. The man is a god and makes her heart drop into her stomach every time he looks at her—and he expects her to carry on a conversation with him??! Kate is already nervous beyond belief because she is pretending to be a Scottish laird's widow, when, in fact, she is as English as they come. But, she is on a mission and nothing will stop her in the pursuit of her goal, even if the man she loves believes that she is a spy and is willing to put her to death to protect his King.
I LOVE this story. It will go on my keeper shelf for all time. I felt so compelled to research this era a little more when I finished reading, I hopped right onto my computer and started searching the web, looking for facts about King James I. A fascinating tale in and of itself, but when worked into such a fabulous book, it is just that much better.
