    "Kinda disappointed......"

    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????

    "A Great Fun Read! Love the continuation!"
    Where does Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think the MacKenzie series is one of the very best! You are with them each step of the story - amazing!


    What other book might you compare Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage to and why?

    The other 3 MacKenzie Books - the Madness of Ian MacKenzie is the best of all!


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

    Ian MacKenzie


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The book is so moving and so well read! Angela Dawe is awesome!


    Any additional comments?

    Read them - The best Keeper to come along in a long time - what a fab discovery!

    "Good!"

    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.

    "disappointed"

    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.

    Story
    "Couldn't stop listening"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "A LOVE SO STRONG IT HURTS"
    What made the experience of listening to Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage the most enjoyable?

    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).


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Love story. The strength that Isabella exhibited is the kind of strength women claim to have, but very few actually do.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I wanted it to go on... So I tried but failed to strech it out.


    Any additional comments?

    The love scenes were HOT HOT HOT.

    "Another happy Mackenzie"

    Quite a drawn out & randy reconciliation that doesn't disappoint. Audio is fabulous. Isabel is strong and feminine & Mack is masculine, sensitive and playful.

    "Everything I LOVE in a good romance"

    This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites! The main reason...IT IS A FAMILY AFFAIR! We get to see the whole family interact in the books. The whole fun group! I enjoyed the first book immensely, BUT this one I COULDN'T PUSH PAUSE!!! I was so looking forward to Mac and Isabella's story and it didn't disappoint.

    Their relationship wasn't perfect....so he wants to be a better man. She loves him but can't have him destroy himself and her at the same time. So this is the story of how they fix it!

    Way more passion and steam than the first book. VERY HOT!

    So much fun! I loved loved loved this book. I actually learned to love Ian (from book 1) even more after this book. I just really HATE the AUDIBLE cover! (I know that has nothing to do with it, but just my thoughts!)

    If you like book one - you'll LOVE book 2! I am totally hooked on this series and so far Mac and Isabella are my favorite characters, but Cameron's story is coming up and that could change!

    Get it now!
