Kill or Be Kilt

February 6th, 2018
Author: Victoria Roberts    Series: Highland Spies #3

Lady Elizabeth Walsingham pined after the same man for years. When she finally realizes the brawny Highland laird doesn’t return her feelings, she decides to leave for London and start anew. It seems that her prayers are answered when she catches the eye of a charming actor at the Globe Theatre – a man who is the complete opposite of the Highlander she once loved.

Laird Ian Monroe spends his time avoiding the bothersome young girl who dreams of their union. But when he travels to London and discovers that she has a new love interest with a dishonorable agenda, his perspective changes. Ian soon realizes that Elizabeth is no longer a child with a crush, but a beautiful woman in need of his help. He may have what it takes to rescue Elizabeth from her scheming beau, but does he have the courage to reclaim Elizabeth’s heart as well?

This book may contain explicit intimate scenes, so if you are not 18+ then I probably wouldn’t recommend it for younger readers.
My Review

It saddens me that this is over, but my lord, did I love it. Ian was introduced in the first previous books, but you didn’t get a good feel of him until now. My gosh, I LOVED the man. He was insanely hilarious, just like Rauiri and Fagan. having not much experience with women, he often puts his foot in his mouth and then wonders what he said to make the lasses – ahem Elizabeth – cross with him. The poor man was put through the ringer throughout the book with his battling emoticons for Elizabeth. He feels that he isn’t an attractive man and doesn’t understand what she sees in him. And why she has pined for him since she was 15. He thinks she can do much than than him.

After spending years pining for him, and not getting her feelings returned, Elizabeth decides it’s time to move on, but once she does to court and men pays her attention, Ian’s jealous side comes out. He doesn’t like the other men paying her attention and finally, FINALLY, wakes up and attempts to woo her, which he bumbles his way along.

To others, Ian might appear frightening due to his mountain-ness size and demeanor, but with Elizabeth, he is a tender, gentle, kind man. I loved seeing that side of him, especially after he starts to woo her in earnest.

Just like the previous two books, this one was filled with humorous scenes and dialogues between the characters, which is one of the BIGGEST reasons why I LOVED this series. I, for one, hope that Kat and Torquil will get a book, so for now, I will faithfully cross my fingers and hope my wish comes true.
