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.

I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
I've been waiting a long time to hear Daniel's story. Once again Jennifer Ashley doesn't disappoint.
Quickly about the narrator.... she has definitely improved over the books.
Violet is a great character....different from most.. she's unique. She's a perfect match for Daniel.
There's some plot surprises and twists and turns that keep you interested and guessing. There is a dark element which gives this book substance, but overall it's a fun and exciting love story.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I loved the Mackenzie Brothers stories, the additional family members stories are a bump down from theirs. Ms. Dawe was a little flat this listen but it was on sale so no loss.
I love this series. I enjoy the story and characters. The narrator was very off putting. He accents left much to be desired and the way she speaks is ... Challenging.
This is one of the best story lines of the series, the characters are interesting and the love story is good. The sex is probably the most tame in this book but it's appropriate to the character/story. On to the next one...
Loved the Mackenzie books. Loved the men and their women.
I have read some more than once.
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'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.
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!
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!!
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.
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.
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.
Yes. Daniel is a changing man in a changing time. He loves his motor cars and other gadgets. He needs a special kind of girl and he finds her in Violet.
Daniel of course. He is so caring, kind, tender yet tough.
Yes. It was as wonderful as all her Mackenzie Novels.
A romance across the continents.
Great story, Great narrator.
