"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)
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
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.
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.
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.
The say she was whisked away and enticed to elope at her coming out.
Lady Isabella, of course!
The narrator makes this a delightful way to spend time.
read & watch
Yes, the story was good but long time for characters to be apart?
How close the brother are.
I liked the Narrator
No, I liked the flow of the story for the most part.
I think the MacKenzie series is one of the very best! You are with them each step of the story - amazing!
The other 3 MacKenzie Books - the Madness of Ian MacKenzie is the best of all!
The book is so moving and so well read! Angela Dawe is awesome!
Read them - The best Keeper to come along in a long time - what a fab discovery!
I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.
I gave this book 4 stars because it was good but not as great as the first in the series. It was fun listening to it but not as sit on the edge of your chair, can't put the book down good as I felt with the fist book. The narrator did a good job also though I would have preferred another narrator for this series but well done overall. I look forward to reading other books by Jennifer Ashley.
Many things: The narration was awesome, the story was engaging and exciting. I don't believe there is a woman that would not want to be loved the way Mac loved Isabella, and I am sure most men wish they had it going on like Mac. He is magnificent (after he got over his traumatic childhood issues).
The Love story. The strength that Isabella exhibited is the kind of strength women claim to have, but very few actually do.
She has the voices down extremely well. The sexy scottish accent, the British accent, the confident/sexy tone she gives Isabella and the no nonsense masculine twist of all the males, gave me goose bumps.
No. I wanted it to go on... So I tried but failed to strech it out.
The love scenes were HOT HOT HOT.
I found the first book in this series very clever, with good love scenes and interesting story, but sadly the second book was tedious and I couldn't wait for it to end.
The reader got by in the first book because her robotic style of reading fit with an autistic style of speech, but sadly not in the second. I don't think I will continue with the series.
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
Loved the first book and the narrator. However, this book seemed to drag on and the narrator's anxiety ridden voice the entire book made for difficult listening. I don't know why she changed so much from the first????
