A renowned rake, Cameron Mackenzie doesn't care if Ainsley Douglas has a virtuous excuse for sneaking around his bedchamber. He only cares that she's at his mercy. One kiss at a time, he plans to seduce her. But what starts out as a lusty diversion may break Cam's own rules.

"Ashley's latest flawlessly written historical romance richly rewards romance [fans] with its multilayered characterization; sexy, secrets-saturated plotting; sharp wit; and enthralling writing." (Booklist)
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
This series just keeps getting better and better. I didn’t think there would be a Mackenzie brother I would love more than Ian, but Cameron sure did come close. He is such a rake but deep down you know there is something more to him than just carnal pleasures.
I enjoyed the love story between Cam and Ainsley and thought she was the perfect match for him. Add to that the side stories of Daniel, Hart and the rest of the Mackenzie clan and you have a perfect regency romance book.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

First Thought when Finished: The Many Sins of Lord Cameron was delightfully wicked and emotionally gut-wrenching at the same time!
Overall Thoughts: I think it is clear by now that I am just plowing through this series. I am so in love with it! It is dark, sexy, and wonderfully written. Cameron though is my favorite brother (I can say that successfully now that I have read all 4 + the Christmas Novella). He is damaged, sexy, wicked, and does the biggest bastard to HEA turn in the series. I was rooting for him every step of the way and really only Ainsley could have brought him to his knees. He needed someone who could go toe-to-toe with him and not back down. He also needed someone who could work though his particular damage (it was extensive) and be patient with the quirks that brought to his personality. This also makes me wonder how his son (Daniel--first marriage) will turn out. I can't wait to read his book because he is dealing with some his father's baggage too. *sigh* This was just fantastic!
Narrated By Angela Dawe / Length: 9 hrs and 8 mins
Angela pulled of Cam and Ainsley with a precision that made me smile. I am really enjoying her narration of this series.
Final Thoughts: I don't know what I will do when I catch up! Probably try her shifter series LOL
The count said in careful English, "That was perhaps not, as you English say, very sporting."
"Games are played to win," Cameron said. "And we're Scottish.”

This is such a wonderful series. Book three in this series was just as good as the first two. This is the story of Cameron and Ainsley. This book is a little suspenseful, sweet, tender, romantic, sexy, and even sad in some parts. I loved how the characters in the first two books appear in this book. Its like old friends that come to visit. if you liked the first two books you will like this one too!
Never judge a book by its movie
Literally ( pardon the pun) #1!!
Cameron, has always been my favourite character, even since book one.
I love her voice, she's perfect.
This is a book, with real feeling. You can imagine yourself in this dysfunctional, but loving family. These 4 men take care of each other, as adults as they had as boys, due to the abusive house they grew up in.
This book is about Cameron, the 2nd oldest. who suffered abuse from his father and also his wife, who had tried to kill their baby son, before she killed herself, years earlier.
Cameron has meaningless affairs, because he believes he is not worthy of anything else, until he meets Ainsley.
Their story is beautiful and heart-warming.
This is one of the best series of books I have read. You will fall in love with these characters, and their families.
Don't miss out, you won't regret it.
I love JA's work and the whole Highland Pleasures series has been great so far and this book is no exception. If you've listened to the other 2 books in the series then you know what to expect but if you haven't then what are you waiting for - put them in your cart NOW 'cause you don't want to miss this series.!!
As the blurb in the Publisher's Summary says, it's Cameron's turn to find love but the road to it never runs smoothly (that's why we love them isn't it) Cameron is the scarred brother who loves horses, drink, his son Daniel and of course women. He meets Ainsley (now a widow) again after years have passed since their first brief encounter in his bedroom when she was stealing a necklace.
This time there's an instant attraction between them but again, Cameron catches her in his bedroom desperately looking for something. Coupled with the blossoming romance you get the updates from Ian and Beth and Isabella and Mac and, of course, Daniel who is growing up fast.
I could go on about great characters, good plot, sexy Scottish rake etc., etc., etc., but, if you've listened to books 1 & 2, then you know all that and you know what to expect - a thoroughly enjoyable way to pass 9 hours.
Looking forward to Hart's story next in The Duke's Perfect Wife.
Worth my credit? It's a definite Yes.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
Jennifer Ashley has written such an amazing series. Each book has been very different but all of them very well written. The first book in the series The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie was one of the best books I've ever read in my life and made me fall in love with Ian. I was sure no other book could come close to that one. The second book was just ok. But then I listened to this one and I fell in love all over again. This time with Cameron. I had an impression he was a selfish ass who did not care for his son and only lived for his carnal pleasures. Well I was wrong. Very very wrong. Cameron didn't really have that many sins. He was just a very hurt, betrayed and traumatized man. And I love his journey and his change. Ainsley put the pieces of his heart back together little by little. And she was such a good woman. Just an honest, lovable, good woman.
I loved every character on this story. I loved how romantic and sizzling hot the main relationship was. I loved how the other couples were incorporated into the story and to know how they are doing. I loved how the next story was introduced (Hart and Eleanor). I loved the freaking horse Jasmine. I loved Cam's son Daniel. I even loved Angelo the gypsie. Yeah, I pretty much loved every second of this story.
Narration: Angela Dawe did a great job with the story. I gave up trying to hear a british or Scottish accent but other than that the narration was passionate, intense and nearly perfect. Worth a credit? Abso-freaking-lutly!!!
I loved both Ian and Mac's story. I didn't think Jennifer Ashley could write another 5star book. But she has. Cam story is sad, passionate and beautiful. Surpassed my expectations, and then some.
Angela Dawe's performance was superb! I want to read the next book, but I'm willing to wait to hear Dawe's beautiful interpretation.
Highly recommended!!! Every book in this series is exceptional.
I really enjoyed this story. Book 1 (Ian) is still my favorite, but Book 3 is a close second. The one thing that "spoiled" it for me was the narration. Ainsley's voice is just weird - I don't think anyone speaks like that. I also think Dawe was so focused on giving Cameron & Ainsley distinct voices that she missed a lot of the emotion & inflections in the banter that would have made it more enjoyable. I'm guessing I would have enjoyed this book as much as Ian's had I read the paper copy. However, the narration was not so off putting that I wouldn't recommend it, so do give it a go. It is a worthy addition to the series.
Great Mackenzie family.
How close the family is.
I will listen to Hart's story but I'll have to listen to it at 1.25 speed on my iPad. It's the only way to get past Ms. Dawe's hesitation when she read.
This was a really good book but the narration leaves a lot to be desired. Once I finish this series I will never listen to another book narrated by Ms. Dawe.
Absolutely in the tops. I'm a relative newcomer to the Romance genre however, this series is delightful, well written and compelling. You feel for the characters and become easily involved in the storyline.
Cameron. He's rough around the edges but with good reason. A lost boy who finds his way to love.
She captures the flavor of the time period and her vocal expertise helps you track the various characters. Listening to her is a dream. She's a true pro--accents and all. Superb.
Probably when the true story of his demented wife comes to light. Cameron is proud but has sacrificed much to save his son. All of the Lords have had nightmare childhoods with a tyrant for a father, Cameron escaped much of that but was saddled with a cray-cray sex addicted suicidal wife. The truth about her misdeeds towards her child were shocking.
I seriously listen to this series over and over again. Simply enjoyed it immensely.
