Alex Hepburn is the queen's secret service agent and has sworn to give his dying breath to the cause of protecting the crown. This has caused him to be a bit cynical and standoffish towards people. He has lost a few of his agent buddies, but the biggest blow is when he lost Ariel the woman he was supposed to marry. Now he is hot on the heels to the traitor faction that has caused so much havoc in Scotland and in his personal life. He will not rest until he has destroyed them from the leader to the maid.

Mahri Scot was a courier for the group out to harm the queen, but now she has abdicated from them and they are after her. Her only hope is the stuffy, by the book Hepburn who will do anything to save her and the queen. Mahri has a thousand secrets, and Alex will strip them from her kiss by kiss until she is laid naked and bare before him, literally.

The Scot and I was really difficult to get into. The plot was okay, but it took its time getting to the point. By the time the story gets somewhat exciting, it has taken you so long to get to the good part you are really tired of the book. This was not a page turner, it was more of a yawn.
