Start your review of Rescued By the Scot (Romancing the Spies #3)
Half dead, beaten to a pulp, Zane Maxwell, agent for the crown, knew he could die in the bowels of Captain Shears’ ship. The black heart was an animal who enjoyed the pain he was known to inflict on others, including women. He never thought a beautiful Scot would come to his rescue, or did she have an agenda of her own? Was he to become a pawn in her own machinations?

Skye MacKinnon was a woman on a mission, and it didn’t include falling under the spell of the man she found on Shear’s ship. She w

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

5 out of 5 stars

The story Rescued By the Scot by Laura A. Barnes is 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. Zane is handsome, charming, and a prisoner of Sky MacKinnon. He has a reputation with women which follows him everywhere. He ha

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 h
Rescued By the Scot (Romancing the Spies #3) by Laura A. Barnes was just as cheesy, steamy and entertaining as the other books, and might, just might be my fav of the three.

Not my first read by this author or in this series, though these books follow different MC's, they do have a continuation plot that started in the first book, so I highly suggest you go back and start with book one, just so you're not confused or lost with some aspects of this book.

Rescued by the Scot by Laura A. Barnes is a great romance novel that tied all of the other romancing the spy series together beautifully. Following the story of Zane Maxwell and Skye MacKinnon, who’s romance knocked me for a loop from the beginning and didn’t let go until the last page. Zane is a charming man who happens to be a prisoner of Skye’s. With the reputation of man who could get any woman he wants, and even some that he doesn’t want, the need to settle down has never gotten hold of him ...more

Rescued By The Scot by Laura A. Barnes is the third book in the Romancing The Spies series. This book can be read as a stand-alone.
Skye is only looking for the safe return of her brother. The last thing she expects is to be drawn into a much more complex and nefarious scheme. When she captures the double agent she never expected to be pulled into an attraction so deep she couldn’t escape. But she is forced to betray him, the man she has come to love.
In doing so Skye is held at the mercy of the

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 culminat ...more

Reading books 1 and not is not super important and reading these books out of order is fine but this set should be read in order to understand all the little background bits.
Reading about Zane in the first book made me feel for him so much. He just wanted someone to love him with all the passion that he has within him and he didn't make as many stupid decisions about other people without looking at all the facts *cough* Thorn and Ivy *cough*
Skye is a fierce woman with a good sense of who she is

Maxwell, Maxwell, Maxwell! After reading books 1 and 2 Maxwell finally gets what he deserves!!! This is my favorite book of the series! There is so much mystery. More questions arise about who the spies really are and who they are spying for! All the questions get answered! Plus, a sneaky little plot twist that I didn’t see coming!

Skye and Maxwell are the main couple in this book, with the couples from the previous books being important secondary characters. They are all out to either start a w

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 just am in awe of this series. I have read all three books in this series and I am just as hooked on this one as
I was on book one. These are such a great period romance read. I find the author is quite good at luring the reader

Can Zane Maxwell learn to trust the lover who betrayed him?...

I had never read anything by this author previously so it was my feeling that I would probably enjoyed this book more had I read the other two books in the series first.
A dastardly villain and incredibly swoon worthy hero made it a book that was still hard to put down.
I did not care much for the heroine initially but she grew on me near the end of the book.

This is entertaining, romantic and intense. Zane is determined, bold, daring and charming. Skye is tough, stubborn, impulsive and bold.

Rescued By the Scot By Laura A. Barnes. This is my favorite story by this author, don’t get me wrong the others are great also. But this one just hooked me on an entirely different level. From page one the author takes readers on a journey you won’t forget. Zane and Skye immediately drag you into their world where you feel every single emotion the author writes into the story. The chemistry between the characters jumps off the pages. I couldn’t put this book down until the very end and I just co ...more

Rescued by the Scot by Laura Barnes. This is the 3rd and final book in the Romancing the Spies series and I'm sad. I loved this series and didn't want it to end. Zane Maxwell is a ladies man and has never really wanted to settle down until he comes in contact with Skye MacKinnon. He is intrigued and has a connection with her right away even though he is her prisoner. Skye has found herself very attracted to him as well but she has to concentrate on getting her brother safely returned to her. Sky ...more

Rescued by the Scot written by Laura Barnes is book three in the Romancing the Spies series. If you read the previous two stories you are familiar with Zane and Skye to an extent but rescued by the Scott is the conclusion to their push and pull relationship. This is where all that denial, want, and lust all come to a head and it is such a well written story you want to finish it the moment you start reading. Some of the past characters are brought back into the story as they finally defeat the o ...more

Four Stars
A story of honor, duty, betrayal, espionage and love. This story was set in A time where doing for your country was priority number one. That king and country were to be honored and respected. The author definitely through some loops in there. I wasn’t expecting Skye to be who she was. She was very brave and courageous to establish her life the way she did. She put a lot on the line and got burned. I didn’t really understand her reasoning at the end

Zane has always been a ladies man never wanting to settle down until he meets Skye, Skye is aboard a ship a man that she knows is evil she’s there to do business with him but what she finds instead is a prisoner that she can use for her own agenda.

Her characters are connectable and loveable. They have a way of making the story flow with ease and making you feel as if you are right there with them. I love the chemistry between Zane and Skye, attraction from the start. They bring action and romance to this story, I couldn't put it down until the last page. I highly recommend this book

This book held me until the very end. I loved the romance that grew between Skye and Maxwell, and all the twists and turns as they learned that trust was the most important thing for them to learn. This story had it all, love, friendship, betrayal, mystery and more. The characters are very well presented, so believable and very sexy. A little bit of a spicy read, but so worth it! This is the first book I have read from Laura Barnes, but for sure not my last.

Rescued By the Scot, by: Laura Barnes is the third and final book in the rescuing the spies series. I have loved all of these books, but this one was my favorite! Although the ending gave me a serious book hangover, because these characters felt so real and I was consumed by their story. I really enjoyed this authors series, and would absolutely read other things by her. I give this book 5 stars!

This is the third book in the series and it was another wonderful adventure. Once again, the characters worked together well. There was action, adventure, mystery, suspense and romance. Although it can be read as a standalone, it is much better to read them in series as it is a continued story. There were a few sex scenes but this reviewer as usual skipped them and it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the story.

What a fantastic book! The author is extremely skilled in developing her characters and plot. They flow seemlessly and are somehow extremely relatable. I appreciated the detail the author provides the reader. You feel like you are stepping directly into this story alongside the characters. Just extremely well written. Highly recommend!
