I haven't read the print book, but I can't imagine reading it without hearing Angela Dawe's voices in my head. In fact, I just downloaded the print version of A MacKenzie Family Christmas, now that I've finished listening to the four main books about the brothers. I hear Angela's voices in my head as I read it. I am relatively new to audible.com, but after hearing the four books, I have been searching for other books she reads. I'm ready to pack my bags and head to Scotland after listening!
This is the Fourth book in the series; I recommend starting with The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie. The second book is Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage and the third is The Many Sins of Lord Cameron. All main characters from the first three appear in this fourth book, and you will enjoy it more in chronological order.
Similar to Maya Banks Scotland books. Strong, stubborn hot men, headstrong women, wonderful Scot accents. What else could you want in a romance?
The family photograph scene towards the end.
Yes, but instead I listened while I did chores around the house. Made folding laundry much more enjoyable!
Jennifer Asley makes you love family in this story. I didn't think any of the brothers in this series would be more interesting then Ian. To my surprise Hart was as complex, interesting, and unpredictable as his younger brother. Hart MacKenzie has sufficed much for his family's security and his career. He is handsome, but has a dark side to his personality that not everyone understands. I would listen to this story again because of the complexity of his character and interaction between the MacKenzie men and women.
I loved both Hart and Ian. Hart for his ability to show commitment to family, intergrity in relationships with friends. Ian is my overall favorite character because of how he demonstrates the same high level of commitment and intergrity as Hart. Between the two of them there is a perfect parternship in profecting the ones they love.
The MacKenzie Brothers series was the first time I listened to Angela Dawes. She was perfect. I enjoyed listening to her.
The interaction between Hart and Elleanor was delightful. Her ability to ignore Hart and proceed with her own agenda kept me laughing.
I can't waite for the series to continue with Daniel Mackenzie.
I found this brother the least compelling of the MacKenzie brothers. Would have enjoyed more of a romance storyline.
I liked this story the least of the MacKenzie brothers series.
Love Lord Mac and Lord Cam!

I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
"The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie" may have been one of the best historical romances I have ever read. Everything was spot on. The plot, characters and narrator were all great.
The next two books in the series were disappointing - just OK. I was really hoping the last book in the series would redeem the series overall. It was definitely better than the 2nd and 3rd books, but nothing like the first.
It did a good job of tying up loose ends. But it was at it's best when Lord Ian and his wife put in an appearance. And they didn't appear enough.
I am glad this series is over. I don't have to hold out for redemption. I will just remember Lord Ian fondly and hope the author has another character up her sleeve as wonderful as him in her next book.
Yes!! The story teller has great range and did a perfect highland accent.
The brothers are alike in many ways and yet totally different. Its best to start with the first
book and watch as the family slowly change for the better.
When he first show his feeling for the lady.
I have read all the books so every scene was a favorite.The Duke gets his due
The Duke gets his due.
Another great addition to the series, The Duke's Perfect Wife includes Hart's political ambitions, assassination attempts, possible blackmail, some nice moments with the kids, Ian playing an important role in Hart's HEA, and yes, Eleanor is perfect. A lot going on and the romance doesn't get lost. Very well done.

Other books in this series. It is set around a family.
I have not listened to anything she has narated before but deffinitely would again. She was great.
This entire series was wonderful. There was a great love story with a little mystery as well. I was very pleased with this book and was sad to see the series over. I hope that she writes another book for this series as there is one more brother left in the family to write about
I just love the Mackenzies. Again I think Angela Dawe has the perfect narration for 1880s England/Scotland. Harts story did not disappoint and I hope Ms Ashley continues on with Daniels story and Mr Fellows story. I started this series only because the first book sounded unusual, I don't regret it and each story has been equally good. These people have depth and soul.
Romantic, intriguing, and sensual!
The well developed characters and their background stories. The love scenes were not only steamy but filled with pure love the characters felt for each other. Eleanor was such an amazing and strong woman.
Awesome performance! She narrates with such excitement and feeling!!
When Hart Mackenzie realized that his love for Eleanor and his family was more important than power and ambition.
I liked this book, just thought Ian & Camerons was more interesting. This one does fill in the lingering questions from the other three in the series.
