"Ashley works her magic to create a unique love story brimming over with depth of emotion, unforgettable characters, sizzling passion, mystery, and a story that reaches out and grabs your heart. Brava!" (Romantic Times)
It's hard to stand next to The Madness of Lord Ian (1st book). Lord Ian was great Lady Isabella was good.
Lover of books both big and small.
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!
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.
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.
This book made me laugh, they found themselves in some of the strangest personal situations.
Great overall performance and a wonderful story!
I loved the scenes that included the rest of the Mackenzie Clan.
Ian from The Madness of Lord Mackenzie.
The entire series is amazing! One of my very favorites.
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.
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.....
What a wonderful romance (and sexy too)! The entire series is fantastic. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
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.
