Deception of a Highlander

Book 1, Highlander

"A promising debut​.​"—​PUBLISHERS WEEKLY​

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 02, 2015 – Martin's promising debut sets a dramatic romance in the faintly sketched world of early Jacobean Scotland. Mariel Brandon is given three months to seduce and extract information from Highland laird Kieran MacDonald, with threats to her young brother's life if she fails. As they travel from London to Edinburgh to Kieran's home on Skye, Kieran struggles to protect his secrets from the mysterious woman who is trying to find a way into his bed and his heart. Martin has achieved a difficult creation, portraying two people who manage to keep secrets from each other without lying. Martin gives Mariel a strong personality without falling into anachronism, and Kieran manages to balance his leadership duties with his growing feelings for Mariel without seeming too good to be true. In contrast, the secondary characters behave inconsistently, and the villains are very close to cartoonish. The core of the book is a tightly plotted sequence of events that focuses and deepens the relationship of the main couple.
