I love Jennifer Ashley. She is a talented author! I especially appreciate the talents of Angela Dawe as a narrator. Her performance brings the books alive. I didn't think anyone could rival Susan Ericksen's talents but I believe Angela Dawe is equally as good! With her narration, there's no doubt which character is speaking. It's a wonderful listen!
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Absolutely and I'm strictly a contemporary romance fan. Usually HATE historical romances.
Isabella, which is surprisingly for me as I tend to favor the hero. She is a strong woman trying to figure things out. She has dust-ups with Mac without trying to emasculate him.
Her voice as Isabella is beautifully smooth and she is still able to carry off the challenges of the male characters.
The whole subplot with the impersonator was of great interest...I cannot choose a specific scene without 'spoiling'.
This is pretty mild with some sexual scenes and a bit of cussing.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Yes, it is your typical highland romance with a happy ending. It is a series so naturally you have to find out about the other brothers. Comparing this to Ian it is a little bland but again those Scot's know how to love!
The discovery of what had been burned in the attic...
I loved her in Ian's book and she is just as strong this time around...
Again probably what was burned in the attic. The ending was pretty moving too, summing up what was happening with the family up until now!
There's four, starting with Ian MacKenzie.
Hm..... all being equal.... I cannot say.
I just wouldn't....
Angela Dawe does a fine job. Ms. Ashley has written a nice book. I can't quite say boring as I was never truly bored. There was no great revelation or surprises. I have to admit it did hold my attention all the same.
This is NOT a highlander story! Worth a credit? I don't know.....
I found the first book in this series very clever, with good love scenes and interesting story, but sadly the second book was tedious and I couldn't wait for it to end.
The reader got by in the first book because her robotic style of reading fit with an autistic style of speech, but sadly not in the second. I don't think I will continue with the series.
I am truly loving this series on audio. Mac and Isabella are a great couple with great chemistry. Bring on the next one!
Say something about yourself!
Lady Isabella and Mac are quite the pair. Each Mackenzie brother is in each of the books and each quite interesting. I see Mac as a kind of Rhett Butler character though I can’t say Rhett’s character is as fleshed out as Mac’s was. The marriage should have been doomed and basically was except for the desire of the both of them, Lady Isabella and Mac, to make it work eventually.
I loved the part where Sarah came into their lives – but you have to read it to find out who that is. Wink wink.
The story was very sweet, angry, intense, and well thought out; and you know from the beginning that they will end up together so no spoiler alert, but HOW they got back together and WHY is a very nice journey.
I have completely enjoyed this series and I hope you do too.
This is #2 and I am not at all disapointed, just as good as the first one. Angela Dawe is great for this kind of era. I really can't wait for number 3.
It's not a bad audiobook. Ashley just came up short, because the first book was so outstanding. This is a pretty cookie-cutter historical romance that becomes interesting about the time Ian and Beth show up. And it's interesting because of the characters, not the story. On their own, Mac and Isabella are wonderful secondary characters. Their book just doesn't make the same impact as others in this series. I think you could actually skip this book if you wanted to. Do not skip Cameron's book. We see the whole family, but the story stands on its own and Cam and Ainsley are a strong couple.
