Publisher's Summary

Daniel Mackenzie lives up to the reputation of the scandalous Mackenzie family - he has wealth, looks, and talent, and women love him. When he meets Violet Bastien - one of the most famous spiritual mediums in England - he immediately knows two things: that Miss Bastien is a fraud, and that he’s wildly attracted to her.

Violet knows she can’t really contact the other side, but she’s excellent at reading people. She discerns quickly that Daniel is intelligent and dangerous to her reputation, but she also finds him generous, handsome, and outrageously wicked. But spectres from Violet’s past threaten to destroy her, and she flees England, adopting yet another identity. Daniel is determined to find the elusive Violet and pursue the passion he feels for her.

Although Violet knows that her scandalous past will keep her from proper marriage, her attraction to Daniel is irresistible. It’s not until Daniel is the only one she can turn to that he proves he believes in something more than cold facts. He believes in love.

    "Off just a bit and frustrating reader"

    I really liked The Madness of Ian MacKenzie a lot. The rest of the series has gone down a bit each book. I have read some, I've listened to some. I was really looking forward to Daniel's book and I liked the set up. But somehow it missed the potential. Daniel has always been able to get what he's wanted in the past books off his charm. In this book he sort of runs over everyone and no one gets angry cause of his charm. As far as the Violet, I really dislike stories that feature her particular form of damage.

    Now for the biggest problem. What is going on with Angela Dawe? Her limited voices and odd cadence haven't bothered me AS bad in other books. I didn't notice it at all in Madness of Ian. In this book, especially the first file, you can count to 2 between every sentence, sometime 3. It's like she's being presented ONE sentence at a time on a dragging monitor. The pause is frustrating and very distracting. She has a habit of framing each sentence strongly anyway, but the gap between was far too long.

    "uncomfortable and disappointing"

    I really wish they would mention sexual abuse themes and graphic rape attempts in the description.

    Violet needs a shrink not a man and Daniel (who I was so looking forward to!) needs a nanny. Both characters are very inconsistent in maturity level and behavior. The plot is occasionally ludicrous which goes poorly with the extreme griity of the rape and poverty theme. I don't know if the writer was rushed or just flubbed this one but I wouldn't have guessed it was the same writer.

    I like Angela Dawe's style but I think she lacks the range needed for a muilti book saga especially including characters who constantly change accents.

    "OK….How can you not love a MacKenzie?"

    I love the MacKenzie men. They are scrumptious. Their only weakness is that when they fall for their women…. they fall hard. I guess it is true that people are drawn to others by beauty first and then kept there by that person’s innate qualities. What a great story of forgiveness, love, sacrifice, and passion all rolled up in one book. If there were no misunderstandings, mistrust and suspicions, all these romance novels would be short-lived and not quite as entertaining. This book has its share of that as well as limb tingling passion. All together worth the credit.

    "SAINT OR SINNER...... WE ALL LOVE DANIEL"

    If you're a fan of the MacKenzie Clan, as I am, then you too would have watched Daniel go through his difficult childhood but thankfully, in this book, we see he's all grown up into a sexy, wealthy, handsome, caring, smart, creative, quirky Scotsman with a 'devil may care' attitude to life and everyone loves him..... especially the women (and me me me!!)

    But as soon as he sets eyes on Violet (a poor con artist) he's attracted then, when he sees her inventions, he's fascinated but, as Violet slowly opens up to him about her tragic terrible past and still manages to be strong, then he's not only attracted and fascinated but obsessed too. He will follow her to the ends of the earth to have her but he must tread carefully as this slow seduction will take a lot of patience and self control but he hopes it will all be worth it in the end.

    Set during the 1890's Industrial Revolution Daniel and Violet are like minded Inventors as well as being drawn to each other and, as the feelings deepen, Violet sees a glimmer of hope for the future and a chance of the security she never had. There's secrets, revenge, villains, twists, surprises, suspense, passion, tenderness, humor, sex and a sensual romance but in the end it takes all of the MacKenzie Clan to ensure a HEA ending.

    Worth a credit? It's a very well written, emotional, riveting series to get into and once you do you eagerly await the next entertaining instalment - so that folks is a YES. This could be a stand alone listen but why deprive yourselves of an awesome series - start at book 1 and savour each and every story.

    "Still good but not the best in the series"

    I love love love Angela Dawe's voice and how well she can do different accents. She makes everything sound so dreamy and creamy. As far as the book goes there was a lot of good action and Ashley always slowly unravels the interesting depths of her characters making you grow into the characters relationship with them. I didn't like this one as much, though. The woman being a lot older than the man killed it for me. She pointed it out so many times I couldn't just let it go and it bothered me the entire time. Other than that it was a good story.

    "Just when I thought it couldn't get better......."
    Where does The Wicked Deeds of Daniel MacKenzie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think this was my favorite of all. I laughed continuously, it was a little "what next??", and I cried like a baby towards the end, for reasons I won't tell you because it will ruin it!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    What's not to like about Daniel and Violet? Both have had heartache and hardship in their own ways. Neither let it hold them back. Then they find each other. And when you think the situation is hopeless....it's all ok. Daniel is the best of the best MacKenzie's.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    EVERYTHING!! I love listening to her and her interpretation of the story. I love her characters and how they all come to life to wonderfully through her voice. I could listen to her all day!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Fun, free, riveting, heart wrenching and then warm and fuzzy!! It's got it all and you'll want to see it again and again for the good feelings and the road to get there!!


    Any additional comments?

    Even if you are not a fan of historical romance, this series is worth the read. No two books are alike, the women are independently strong, warm, giving, loving, and charismatic. The men are masculine, sexy, playful, trouble-makers, and adorable! So worth the read/listen. So hard to put down and I know I'm probably going to listen to them again and again.

    "Finally Daniel's Book!"

    I've read the almost the entire series on Audible and Daniel Mackenzie was one of my favorite charcters. I'm glad that the author moved the story along so that we could see him all grown up and falling in love. The narrator Angela Dawe is one of my favorites. She always does a great job. If you haven't already, get the rest of the series. They are all credit worthy in my opinion.

    "Read Ian and Elliot"
    Any additional comments?

    I think Ian's story is the best romance ever; I think Elliot's story was just slightly #2. But the ick factor of Daniel's story was just too much. I finished it thinking it had to eventually have something I would enjoy. It did not. Sorry.

    "A great ending to a great series"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Daniel and how he grew from each book


    Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoy her performance it took awhile but I think she is great and would listen to her again and again. She has a certain style her own and it's great.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not this time. But it was enjoyable listen


    Any additional comments?

    A great finish to the series. Ian gets you pulled in at book one which was my favorite. But I enjoyed them all with no regrets.
