"London heiress kidnapped by the Marquess of Ashlund", read the headlines. Yet no one tried to save her. Phoebe Wallington was seven years old when a mass assassination attempt rocked Regency England. Her father was the only accused traitor to elude capture. Seventeen years later, the one man who could prove her father's innocence is dead. Now as a grown woman and a British spy, she's no closer to learning what really happened that day. Phoebe's quest for the truth takes a sudden turn when she's kidnapped by a suspected traitor. But Kiernan MacGregor, the Marquess of Ashlund, may not live long enough to stand trial. Someone wants him dead, and Phoebe stands in the killer's way. The only way to save her reputation and protect Kiernan is to marry him.

I’ll do my best to express how much I enjoyed my first Tarah Scott novel by telling you that I sighed Phoebe and Kiernan’s names one night as I was falling asleep. Their romance touched me that much. It is exactly this feeling that draws me to read and write romance.
“My Highland Lord” is the second novel in the Highland series. I bought it thinking it was the newest release, so, a bit of confusion there. Once I knew that I was reading the second book, I started looking for couples that could have been in the first book. They will be my next review. The third Highland title will be released on May 15, “To Tame a Highland Earl.” Oooh, dishy.
Before I get carried away thinking about what goodies Tarah Scott has for me in her next novel, I’ll finish telling you more about why “My Highland Lord” gripped me, and didn’t let go. It’s an adventure with some humorous mishaps along the way. Phoebe...
This is the second book in the series as in the first book My Highland Love the Hero Marcus MacGregor Duke of Ashlund, this book is about his son Kiernan MacGregor the Marquee of Ashlund. The heroine is a London heiress Phoebe Wallington who is also a British spy. Phoebe's main objective is to prove her fathers innocence who was accused of being a traitor years ago and has been a fugitive ever since although some think he might be dead. I also love that Phoebe is very independent and sure knows how to measure gun powder. Lots of danger as well as her cousin Ty as his mother Phoebe's Aunt Lady Albery wants her money so they want her dead or those connected to her dead at first until a certain marriage takes place. Then they want Kiernan dead so Ty can marry Phoebe since The Marquee is even richer then Phoebe. Lady Albery is pure evil and is having an affair right under Phoebe's Uncle Lord Albery's nose with servant murderer Clive another bad guy.
I liked the story overall, although it was often confusing (Ms. Scott's novels are action-packed) and had quite a few errors (poorly edited). I did not like Phoebe at times, she was too headstrong and rude, given she was just a Miss amongst high nobles. Being a spy does not allow you liberties in etiquette. Plus, when Kiernan finally bedded her, why was he not surprised, given they had discussed her previous trip to Gretna Green? Strange. And how old was Mathers? I assumed Niall and Donald were younger than the Duke, but was Mathers as old or younger. What's his story? Still, loved the Duke, Elise, Winnie, and Kiernan. Would love to read a story of the next generation of Ashlund MacGregors!
