Rescued for vengeance - Rescued By the Scot (Romancing the Spies #3) by Laura A. Barnes

"a wonderful romance book that I loved reading. It is a story that had me hooked from the very beginning and I found myself getting lost in it. It is a story that has plenty of heat and passion. I loved reading about the characters of Zane Maxwell and Skye MacKinnon." - Laura, Goodreads

Description:

Rescued for vengeance
Set out to finalize a deal for her brother’s return, Skye MacKinnon instead captures the double agent working alongside her enemy. When she holds her prisoner hostage at her castle, he draws her into an attraction that spirals out of control. After she fights off his spell, she deceives him for her own agenda. As she betrays his trust, she is caught in the web of the evil villain who is terrorizing England. When her prisoner rescues her from the torture, she becomes afraid of her own shadow. As Skye recognizes her love for him, can she overcome her fears, or will she be forever destroyed by the violence of her mission? 

Rescued for desire
Chained and left waiting for his own demise, Zane Maxwell is soon rescued by a Scottish goddess. He is enraptured by her charms and drawn under her spell. Her touch and look sink into his soul a connection he cannot resist. While he lures her into his confidence and seduces her into his bed, her only plans are betrayal. When she is captured, he realizes she was only protecting his life. Now he must rescue her and destroy the man who hurt her. Can Zane convince her of his love, or did he miss his chance of a life filled with the woman of his dreams?

EXCERPT

Maxwell walked into the cabin. He pulled a chair next to the bed and settled to watch Skye sleep. Dark bruises covered her face. Her lips were split open and a small crust of blood coated them. Maxwell tightened his hold on the armchair. He remained furious and wanted to kill Shears all over again. He was angry he couldn’t hold her in his arms and soothe away her aches and pains. 

Her hair swam around her face framing her in the shadows. He saw in her sleep her fingers held on tightly to the quilt. He raised his hand, wanting to unwrap them from the blanket and hold them, but knew it could frighten her awake. So, his hand hovered above hers, feeling the heat of her body wrap around his fingers. Feeling Skye. 

He pulled the chair closer and lowered his head to lay next to her hands. He watched her as she slept. Secure in the knowledge that she was safe. The tears streamed down his face unnoticed as her pain seeped into his soul. Soaking deep inside, drowning him in fear and heartache. His tears soaked the quilt, but he didn’t notice. All he took notice of was her. Skye, he whispered over and over in his head. Maxwell only hoped she could hear what his heart was shouting silently to her.

About the author:
I have always dreamed of being an aspiring author. I am making my dreams come true, one word at a time. When I am not writing, I am spending time with my family. I love reading books on lazy afternoons, and late into the night. Anytime really. Married 28 years to the love of my life and we have three wonderful children and two sweet grandbabies. Besides writing, I have always wanted to travel. In the last few years we have gotten our passport stamped in England and Scotland. We are hoping to add Italy to the list soon.
