    Story
    "Fantastic Listen and Read"
    Would you listen to Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage again? Why?

    I would listen to this book over and over again. This has the suspense, the mystery, and the tug at your heart strings that all good historical romances need in order to be a great story!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the way JA incorporated the back story. I am a person who has to understand why a character is the why they are, the little "news story clips" keep us informed of the past troubles in a way that is time sensitive is incredibly well done.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    My favorite character was Mac. I have traveled to Scotland and all of the fake Scottish accents drive me crazy. Angela Dawe gave enough burr into the character to make it believable that he was a Scottish gent with an English education.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me laugh, they found themselves in some of the strangest personal situations.

    "I really liked this series."

    The author made all the characters in this series real. They had human flaws and tried to become better people. Read the series in order or you will be lost.

    Story
    "Not My Fav. Genre but I Am ADDICTED to/LOVE Series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely and I'm strictly a contemporary romance fan. Usually HATE historical romances.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice as Isabella is beautifully smooth and she is still able to carry off the challenges of the male characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole subplot with the impersonator was of great interest...I cannot choose a specific scene without 'spoiling'.


    Any additional comments?

    This is pretty mild with some sexual scenes and a bit of cussing.

    "Not as good as Ian but still fun!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage?

    The discovery of what had been burned in the attic...


    What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved her in Ian's book and she is just as strong this time around...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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!


    Any additional comments?

    There's four, starting with Ian MacKenzie.

    "ok..."
    If you could sum up Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage in three words, what would they be?

    Predictable
    Dirty
    Scandalous


    What did you like best about this story?

    Revisiting Ian.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    Hm..... all being equal.... I cannot say.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I just wouldn't....


    Any additional comments?

    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.....

    Story
    "Very Good Series"

    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.
