About the Author
Melody Thomas is a wordsmith, a creator of dreams, and a passionate believer in happy endings. A product of thirteen schools and twenty-two moves stretching across the United States and Europe, she is a self-proclaimed gypsy. Her fascination with historical romance began when, in her teens, she visited the Tower of London and learned that Henry the Eighth had beheaded two of his wives. This was great fodder for her teenage imagination and the start of a love affair with history, intrigue, and irresistible heroes.

Devin, the Earl of Hampstead, is a dedicated spy on the tale end of a three year mission that seems to be unraveling before his eyes. But while he knows that he missed his betrothal ball he has other things of more important on his mind than a silly dance, he is on a mission for the Queen after all. Though he knows he will have to wed in the fall. Then along comes this sensuous beauty who while is not the epitome of conventional beauty makes his blood sing. What will happen when he not only has to protect her from harm but from his attentions also? Especially when he figures out she is the woman he is set to marry, and can be used as a pawn against him.
Yeah! A non-perfect heroine; one who is headstrong, smart and finally pushed as far as she will go. I was drawn in to Wild And Wicked In Scotland at the very beginning and found it hard to put down while on vacation (much to my husband's chagrin). If there were two people who between them had any worse luck I am not sure it has ever been written but Ms. Thomas makes it work for these two. In spite of all that is happening, and when you think each is going to give up, another twist is thrown in. I love how Ms. Thomas doesn't let Cassie give in. I hope to read more historicals from Ms. Thomas in the future. If you enjoy a good historical romance then you need to pick up Wild and Wicked In Scotland.

Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans. On her way North she runs into all kinds of natural and unnatural disasters beginning with her first meeting with her fiancé,Devlyn who is unaware of Cassie's identity when they first meet. Both are vying for the last coach to Scotland. She finds him rude and he finds the tall American imperious.
Devlyn is actually a British spy on a mission and on the run from some angry Cossacks. Cassie stumbles across his path while the Russians are hot on his trail. Together they must find their way North through torrential rains and flood. The Russians, horse thieves and illness all plague them on their journey.
When they discover each other's true identities, the sparks really fly. Devlyn finds his fiancé kind, but determined. Cassie thinks Devlyn is smart but self centered. They both are right. Cassie falls in love with her fiancé but is not sure if she wants to marry a man she believes is in love with someone else. There is a strong element of mistrust between the two. Devlyn has many secrets he is unwilling to divulge.
Cassie is very American. I loved this about her. She was an independent thinker and very loyal to the United States. Too often American Heiresses are portrayed as shallow title hunters with little regard for their homeland. Not Cassie.
Devlyn is a master of disguise. So much so, he has a hard time figuring out exactly who he is and what he wants. He has lived a shadow life far too long. His feelings for Cassie are sweetly tender. This is a wonderful novel filled with adventure, intrigue, a dashing hero and a spirited heroine.
