    2. Book Review-Kilts and Daggers Summary Grace Walsingham, despises Scotland, she hates everything about it. She can’t stand it, the brogue that she can barely understand, the gaelic language that is difficult to learn, to the horrid tapestries and the warrior like culture. She misses England, and reluctantly agreed to stay for a month, to help her sisters. She is still shocked that her sister and her uncle are spies, and now wants to discover if she could be one too. But there is one Scot who d [...]

    3. Kilts and Daggers by Victoria Roberts is a 2015 Sourcebooks Casablanca publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is a delightful and fun historical romance with a little bit of English, a little bit of Scotland, a pinch of humor, a dab of spice, a handful of dangerous situations, spies and adventure, all mixed together, making this the perfect recipe for a highly entertaining story. Grace is English through and through, [...]

    4. 3.5 starsKilts and Daggers is the second book in the author’s Highland Spies series. I haven’t read the previous book, and although this one works for the most part as a standalone, there are some references to earlier events which left me feeling a little in the dark. It’s a straightforward and – unfortunately - not especially original read, telling the story of the adamantly English Lady Grace Walsingham and her love-hate relationship with Fagan Murray, the ruggedly handsome Highlander [...]

    5. Originally Reviewed For: Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and FantasyWhat a fun book! I have read one other Victoria Roberts book, X Marks the Scot , which was from an entirely different series. I will admit, Kilts and Daggers was a bit slow for me in the beginning. Enough to initially put down and read another. But when I finally took the time to sit down and read it yeah *smiles* a very good book. Kilts and Daggers is book two in Ms. Roberts Highland Spies Series and takes place in the Highlands [...]

    6. I went between 3 and 4 stars for this book. But I just gaveAn Offer from a Gentleman 4 stars, and I likedKilts and Daggers better. Because I read Julia Quinn and Victoria Roberts on the same day, I had opportunity to assess how I felt about both writers. I think Julia Quinn is the better writer, wittier and has a more refined way with words. I say this because having read Victoria Roberts before, I noticed that she repeats herself in a book, recycles the same phrases over and over again in one b [...]

    7. A pair of English ladies have travelled to the Highlands for a wedding. One is marrying, the other wishes her well but finds all the uncouth hairy Scots rather too much to enjoy. Still she catches the eye of one handsome lad. The bride has been a spy for the English crown but is leaving all that behind her - and leaving the lively London life. Nicely picturesque, with a wolf dog, riding along the coast and tapestries depicting battle, besides learning skills with swords and knife-throwing. Some [...]

    10. This is the first book I have read from this author and I am happy to say that I enjoyed it immensely.

    11. Spoken words that will come back to haunt our heroine, Lady Grace Walsingham:“ Understand this…Elizabeth is a Walsingham, and we Walsinghams chase no man.”Ian, Lord Munro, neighboring clan’s laird, airs his general thoughts on women and Laird Sutherland's, in particular:“Women are like damn midges, naught but pests, and I’m afraid ye and your lands are sorely infested.”This remark from our hero, Fegan Murray, the captain of the guard at Sutherland castle, spoken with great sarcasm [...]

    13. Men. In. Kilts. Really this is kinda like sweaty Marines rolling around in the grass. I'm all on board with a little look-see at that. Plus the gorgeous cover? Is an actual review really needed?? hehOkay so a burly Scottish captain of the guard who isn't so fond of English lasses. An English lass who would rather be ANYWHERE than surrounded by brutish kilt wearing Highlanders. And the cursed luck that her sister married his laird. Bwahaha oh the scuffle these two are in as they poke and prod and [...]

    14. Another wonderful story by Victoria Roberts! I love her Highlander books! I just started this story yesterday and already finished it this morning. It’s not a short story by any means but I flew through it and loved every minute of it. We first met Grace in My Highland Spy and I knew there would be something fun with her. She comes across rather stuck up and manages to catch Fagan, the Laird’s Captain of the Guard, attention with a fist to the eye! I was so anxious to see how this proper Eng [...]

    15. ARC REVIEW Book two of Victoria Roberts' Highland Spies series, Kilts and Daggers was a great read, the only that kept it from being a five star was Grace, she was kind of annoying at times but she is an eighteen year old naive girl who thinks she knows it all. Fagan Murray is a stubborn headed sexy scot, who can't resist the haughty Grace even when she is insulting him at every turn. Grace doesn't want to like Fagan, she is engaged to a proper English Gentleman and she doesn't even like Scotlan [...]

    16. I found this book while searching through my local library's available ebooks and the cover caught my eye. But, because I can't stand reading a series out of order, I started with My Highland Spy before reading this book.Overall, it was ok. I really enjoyed the first book in the series and was rather disappointed by this one. First off, the heroine was truly obnoxious. She was haughty, whiny, and stubborn. And, while I enjoyed her speaking her mind in many instances, overall, I found her to be a [...]

    17. These two characters don't much care for one another. Grace is only in Scotland for her sisters wedding. She particularly doesn't enjoy the way they live their life. Grace is betrothed to a nice Englishman and she can't wait to head back, but she's spending a bit of time with her sisters in the highlands. The more time they spend together the strong dislike becomes attraction. Fagan is in charge of protecting Grace on her travels back to England, but there are mercenaries around ready to cause t [...]

    18. One sentence is suffice: ACH, THAT WAS BLOODY BRILLIANT!!!!!! :D*ARC courtesy of Netgalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca*

    19. I wasn't really overly impressed by this book. I mean I liked the idea of these two, who hate each other, to be fighting their attraction. That's a trope I like.But the way it played out felt sort of forced. Like they're yelling at each other and then they're kissing and everything's ok. I don't know, it just didn't feel natural. I like each character separately, but there just wasn't that same magic when they were together.The plot wasn't anything spectacular either. I just didn't get into this [...]

    20. Don't miss this majestic Highland adventure. It's a love story of faith, secrets and will take you on a sweeping journey through the Highlands of Scotland. What would you do if you realized the one thing you want was right in front of you all along?I can't wait to read the next installment in this series.

    21. I wanted to read this book SO BADLY. I mean, come on! Look at the title! It seemed perfect for me! At first I was rejected from this ARC and I was really disappointed. Like very disappointed and then a miracle happened! The publisher offered me this book and I was so elated! But then I got worried…what if it’s like ‘be careful what you wish for?’ What if this book was a serious let down? What if I didn’t like it? What would I do? I only post four and five star reviews on my blog, for c [...]

    25. I’ve not read any titles from this author, but historicals and highlanders are my weakness, so Kilts and Daggers by Victoria Roberts was an obvious choice. And I’m thrilled that I grabbed it. Neatly mixing in intrigue, English and Scottish society, a few braw highlanders and some lovely dialogue and I was enamored. Grace is soon to be married when she discovers that her Uncle and elder sister were spies for the Crown, just the thing she’d like to experience before settling down. She’s go [...]

    26. To read the entire review please visit: my link textVictoria Roberts not only took me to the Highlands, with "Kilts and Daggers", but she also took me back to the feeling I had when I first started reading Romance novels. The Highlands are as much of a character in the story as the Hero and the Heroine. The scenery and vistas play important roles in bringing the couple together and the danger amped up. The hero is not only strong, reliable, and manly but there is something about him that I want [...]
