"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)
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.
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!
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
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 am truly loving this series on audio. Mac and Isabella are a great couple with great chemistry. Bring on the next one!
Historical romance junkie. Who doesn't love romance?
After reading the first book in this series I was eager to hear the next book and it didn't disappoint. Lady Isabella married Mac MacKenzie after knowing him one night. She was young and he was impetuous but now she is older and wiser and knows exactly what she wants and won't settle for less. Mac must go through a journey of discovering who he is and how to win his wife's affections back. This story is touching and human. It shows the flaws we all have deep within us. I love lady Isabella's tough but loving character, she holds her ground and demands that Mac realize how selfish he has been. Ashley's ability to flesh out these two characters and make them interesting is spot on. From beginning to end the listener is drawn in to this story. The complex characters and their relationship to each other and the storyline are enjoyable and I couldn't stop listening. The narrator is good but I wish she could read with more emotion, sometimes she comes off flat and cold. Other than that this is a great listen.
