Image of The Scot and I (Berkley Sensation Historical Romance)

With an overview of Scotland, a place she knows so well, Thornton creates
fast-paced historical intrigue, combining murder, danger and a touch of the paranormal with a strong-willed hero and a heroine who can hold her own in this passion-filled romance.

Alex Hepburn, code-breaker and psychic agent of Her Majesty's Secret Service, is called upon to stop a group of radicals from assassinating Queen Victoria. Mahri Scot, a courier for the group, disappears after foiling the plot, and Alex uses his psychic sixth sense to go after her. Disguised as a young lad, she leads him on a merry chase, and Alex soon discovers that the lad and the woman he's chasing are one and the same.

Both are involved in a dangerous game and are hunted by the conspirators and the military. To protect the woman he has come to trust and love Alex uses his instinct and psychic powers to unmask the mastermind behind the dangerous, anti-monarchy group. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jun., 320 pp., $7.99)
