My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rescued by the Scot is the third and final book in the Romancing the Spies series from Laura A. Barnes. I would recommend that you read the novels in order even though it has been suggested that they can be read as standalones. They do overlap characters and have continuing storylines that make sense in ways that would not if you hadn’t read the previous two books prior to this one. I will say this is probably my favorite of the three books and it closed out the series in a well-rounded culmination. I would still like to make my suggestion that maybe a new addition of the novels with new covers be released someday. I just don’t think these fit, even for historical, and honestly are often deterrents for me to want to pick up novels that are often good books inside.

In Rescued by the Scot we find Skye looking for her brother and hoping that he is safe when and if he is found. She never saw what was coming nor did she expect to fall for the man she would capture in the process, Zane. To top it all off, she will be forced to give him up and risk breaking both of their hearts. What will happen for these two? Will they both survive with their lives and love intact?

4 Stars

Rescued by the Scot is the third book in the Romancing the Spies series by Laura A. Barnes. This has been an interesting and fun series to read. Although the stories contain quite a bit of drama and violence- and I was held in suspense quite a bit- there is also a charming quality to it as well. This story is an intriguing and action-packed historical romance that has kidnapping, hidden agendas, mystery, suspense, adventure, drama, betrayal, espionage, danger, action, seduction, chemistry, romance, and passion. This is the third book in the series, and could be read as a standalone, but having said that, this book may focus on a different couple than the first and second books, but there is a continuing storyline that bridges all the books, so I really recommend reading all the books to help build a better understanding of characters, backstory, and motivations.
Zane Maxwell is a recurring character in the series, whom I was hoping we would get to see much more of. Well, we certainly get to do that in this story. Skye is a fantastic character and the chemistry between her and Zane was intense. They really were so great together. But, Ms. Barnes doesn’t make thing easy for them- they have to work for their happiness. We also get to catch up with the characters from the previous books, which I appreciated. I am hoping that this isn’t the end of the Romancing the Spies series- hopefully there is more to come.
A wonderful addition to the series and my favourite of the three!

Thank you, Ms. Barnes!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Rescued By the Scot by Laura A. Barnes, 4 stars.
*This review may contain spoilers from previous books in the series.*

Zane is a wild man and a rogue. All the ladies love him, and he readily obliges them. But he has another side to his life. He is bent on destroying an evil man out to destroy England. Although he works for England, there is a more personal agenda he is trying to obtain. One no one knows about. But things do not go smoothly for him. When he thinks the end is near, he meets her. A lovely woman with the greenest eyes and wonderful Scottish accent. She is an enemy, but he still can’t stop fantasizing about her.

Skye is on a mission to trade arms with a man she knows to be evil when she sees a prisoner aboard his ship. He can help her succeed in her mission, so she gets him released. She just needs to use him until she can find her brother. But she is not the woman Zane thinks she is. In fact she is so much more. She is only supposed to hold onto him until she gets what she was promised. But each day with him makes her want him more and more. Has Zane go ally met his match in Skye?

If you have read the rest of the series, I know you wanted to read more about Zane. He is such a complicated character. You know he is driven by his heart, even if it doesn’t seem like it. You want to know if he can finally meet a woman while will make him want to settle down. This book has it all. You learn more about him and meet another wonderful character in Skye. She is something else, but you can’t help but love her. The adventure and action is also in this book too. Many things happen, and you will be on the edge of your seat trying to find out just what happens next.

A historical romance with lots of action and adventure, I recommend this book and series.

This is the third book in the romancing the spies series and the third book that I have absolutely loved! Her stories captivate me from the beginning to the end and her writing just flows seamlessly. Skye and Zane were brilliant characters, so much passion and chemistry between them which resulted in some particularly steamy scenes between them. They had a great connection and I really enjoyed reading about them.
I have yet to find a historical romance writer whose books I cannot wait to read more of by I definitely have in Ms Barnes. I absolutely adore her writing, her attention to detail in both the settings for the stories and the amazing characters she creates. This book could be read as a standalone however I would also highly recommend books 1 and 2 you will not be disappointed!
I can’t wait for more from this author in the future!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Laura A. Barnes’ Rescued by the Scot is the third novel in the Romancing the Spies series. This historical romance was a reading pleasure to include the historical depictions, character development and the level of detail that went into this story that made it feel complete & full. I have read the previous two books within this series and the each hold their own, as well as, complimenting each other as part of the series. Zane and Skye were wonderfully paired in Rescued by the Scot – taking in their fiery connection and all the adventure that follows. Any fan of historical novels or those within a series should grab this book, an excellent read.

About Laura A. Barnes

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. My debut novel is Rescued By the Captain.
