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!

"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.
There were a few people who didn't like this, on Amazon, but I refused to listen to them because I couldn't wait to read Hart's story. And I'm so glad I ignored them. Next to Ian's story this one was the best. It could have been better with a different narrator but I, eventually, got past her hesitations when she read. She really didn't read with much emotion either, not like Katherine Kellgren or Moira Quirk or some of the better narrators.
