Publisher's Summary

To redeem her family's disgraced name, Lady Louisa Scranton has decided to acquire a proper husband. He needs to be a man of fortune and highly respectable in order to restore both her family's lost wealth and reputation. She enters the Marriage Mart with all flags flying, determined to find the right bachelor.

But Louisa's hopes are dashed when the Bishop of Hargate drops dead at her feet - and she is shockingly accused of murder! Soon, Louisa's so-called friends begin shunning her, because the company of a suspected killer is never desirable in polite society.

The problem comes to the ears of Detective Inspector Lloyd Fellows, by blow of the decadent Scottish Mackenzie family and an inspector for Scotland Yard. He has shared two passionate kisses with Lady Louisa-and vows to clear her name. For not only does he know she's innocent, he recognizes he's falling for the lovely lady.

Fellows is Louisa's only hope of restoring her family's honor - and it is he alone who intrigues Louisa in a way that may be even more scandalous than murder...

Very enjoyable & intriguing!

If you have been following this series, it's great to finally get into the mind and heart of the unclaimed MacKenzie brother. What once was a dislikable man becomes a hero in this story. Great listen!

Enjoyed the series

Was good. Enjoyed the series for the second time around. Will download the 7th soon. I like the way Ms Ashley's characters developed and intertwined within the family. It was akin to "knowing" the family as a friend.

Mystery solved too easily

I had a hard time getting into the story with this narrator. Somehow not the right performance.

The love was not built up at all and character development was poor. Lastly, the mystery was solved without any proof. Disappointing.

Love The Untamed Mackenzie

I loved this book as well as the entire series. I enjoyed how all the family is intertwined within each book and we can see how everyone grows. I am so glad that Lloyd Fellows got his book. However, I think Ian may be my favourite with Daniel a very close second.

The Untamed Mackenzie

This was a great read. It kept my interest the whole way through it. I really enjoyed the narrator, Jennifer Ashley, she does an awesome job. I.think that also makes the book more enjoyable.

Lady Louisa finally gets her man!

If you've read the previous books, you've already seen the relationship between Lady Louisa and Detective Fellows get its start. In this book we finally get to see the relationship come into fruition. The Mackenzie family is entertaining all on its own. And it's sweet to see the wealthy, elite family rooting for Louisa's relationship with a man that is not, by high society's standards, her equal. It's also nice that the author mixed up the typical historical romance novel a bit by making someone other than a duke or earl Louisa's love interest. And seeing the stern detective fall for an aristocrat makes their love story that much more appealing.

Half-Brother Lloyd gets his book

I adore this series. Lloud Fellowes is the half-brother of the Mackenzie brothers. As a Scotland Yard detective, unacknowledged bastard having grown up in poverty, he's a hardened man. However, even before this book begins, he's falling for Lady Louisa Scranton. As he works to solve the murder of which she's been accused they both fall deeper for one another.

The marration is wonderful. I can't imagine anyone doing more justice to The Highland Pleasure series than Angela Dawes.

Good....nice listen.

Lloyd Fellows is not my favorite character, but Ashley makes you like him.....probably because Daniel was a big part of this novella. Louisa is a good character.

I enjoyed it. Worth the listen...always nice to have more of this series.
