"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 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.
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.
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.
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 thought the fist book was ok, but I liked the characters and their backgrounds, and this was a good second. Will most likely keep listening to the series. Good author and narrator!
While Ian & Beth may always be my favorites. Max & Isabella run a close second. Loved the story. The narrator did a great job of bringing it to life also
The mystery story line was pretty clever but the romantic story line was annoying, but still sexy. The couple wasn't as likable as the couple in the first book. I am moving on to the third book so I wasn't put off the series.
Great storyline-she writes very well and love the details she displays with her words about emotions and their differences. Looking forward to the next book.
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.
