    "I truly hope she continues with this series"

    This is #2 and I am not at all disapointed, just as good as the first one. Angela Dawe is great for this kind of era. I really can't wait for number 3.

    I still believe Ian & Cameron had the best stories. This story was good but not as good as Ian & Cameron's.

    I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!

    "A different twist"

    I just read the second book... The first book still remains my best book..... Despite this I love the story of Mac though he was supposed to be the easily loved of the brother's he didn't get portraited as such.... The story was different....funny at time....but from start to finish we knew what the end would be..... This is a story of fighting for love....hurrying the past and learning to love right. I would recommend to read this book. It's a great series.

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    Story
    "It's all about the relationship"

    The second in the Mackenzie series follows the second youngest of the Mackenzie brothers, the artist Mac. He has always been the fun, irresponsible one, drinking, traveling between Paris, Rome, England and Scotland and doing things on a dare. One dare was to crash the come-out ball of Lady Isabella Scranton and steal a kiss. Instead of just a kiss, he steals her heart and they elope. Six years later, the two have been seperated for 3 years and Mac, sobered up, is trying to win her back. There's also a mystery in this book as well, involving an art forger. One of the things I really enjoyed about this is how there are snippets of society gossip from the beginning of their relationship to tell the back story, while keeping you in the present of the plot.

    "Love this series and the performance"

    Though I am an avid reader and have both e-book and audio of this book....the audio puts you right there into their lives and emotions. Buy the series and just enjoy. The MacKenzies are such strong personalities, but the women really shine.

    "Wonderful Story"
    What did you love best about Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage?

    It was a sweet story and different from most of the 'Scottish or Highlander' type romance novels. The family members and characters in the book are people you will miss. They are a very interesting family.


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

    The say she was whisked away and enticed to elope at her coming out.


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

    Lady Isabella, of course!


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator makes this a delightful way to spend time.

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    Story
    "What Might have been ..."

    I thought I had over indulged in Regency/Victorian romances to the point that I just could not swallow one more. Too much sugar is bad for you. But then I read a review of The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie that totally captured my attention. I learned it was coming out in audiobook and bought it the day is showed up on Audible. And it did not disappoint. The book was not defined by a time period. It had a fascinatingly weird hero and an equally fascinatingly eccentric heroine. They could have been dropped into Rome in 200 AD or Australia in 2010 and it would not have mattered. They would still have been unique. And thoroughly enjoyable.

    So I had high hopes for the next in the series - Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage. Hopes that were ultimately dashed. There was a spark of the eccentric in both of the main characters but that spark was totally undeveloped. Instead he just seemed cruel and self-destructive and she was vapid. Their background was not developed, the explanation of why he treated her so cruelly was weak and just made him more unlikeable. And the fact that she put up with it just made her unsympathetic.

    The villain was also only marginally developed and caused very little conflict. The villain, his daughter and his dying ex-lover are totally superfluous. They are introduced, then basically forgot,

    The only thing that saved the book were the brief moments when Ian showed up. The author and the narrator understand this character and the way his disability is used to point out the weaknesses of others and flaws in their logic is inventive. Too bad she made Ian's wife, as fascinating as Ian in the first book, such a nonentity in this one. If you blinked you missed her. And you definitely missed her wit.

    To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. If it had not been for the brief glimpses of Ian, I probably would not have finished the book.

    "Great series!"

    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!

    "Great Second Book of Series"

    Very good listen. Angela Dawe sometimes monotone rhythmic voice is a little annoying...but other than that... Great Listen.

    Listen to the sample before you buy, just to see if you can tolerate the narrator. Worth the credit I think. Don't buy, just wait for your free credit.
