Review: The Many Sins of Lord Cameron by Jennifer Ashley
The Many Sins of Lord Cameron - Jennifer Ashley

Well, it's official - the Mackenzies are damn delicious! I sooo want me one. This book was so good! I can't think of one complaint, and for me--as a critical reader--that's an odd feeling. 
Cam and Ainsley's story was as amazing as the first books in the series, and I loved every second of it. 

This book had wonderful characters.


The heroine, Ainsleyis a compassionate and strong woman who's been through quite a bit in her life. She is perceptive and opinionated and never shies or hides her feelings for Cameron in front of him, or to herself. She is loyal and wins over everyone who comes her way.


Cameron is a sexy (not surprising, he is a Mackenzie...), kind person wrapped in a harsh exterior and a mask of indifference. He's a wonderfully scarred man, both inside and outside (and girls - we all know how much we love emotionally scarred men), and there is something so endearing in seeing (I mean reading) about a man so big and strong feel fear like that. The deal with his wife is revolting. It's amazing a cute person such as Daniel can come from the woman. Speaking of which... 


Daniel is Cameron's son and I enjoyed seeing this child grow.  He's definitely turning into a Mackenzie hunk, and he might be one of the smartest Mackenzie's out there! He's got wisdom beyond his years, and...

2nd Time Around: The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenize by Jennifer Ashley
The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie - Jennifer Ashley

I'm a re-reader. When I give a book 5 stars, it means re-reading it is not an option - it's a demand. Because it's that good. This little feature is for whenever I re-read, to let you guys know if I still felt the book was as good as I thought before!

The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie is one of the best historical romances I've ever read. It's got real characters, woven together by beautifully threaded words into a plot that captures you attention, your heart and your soul.
If you haven't read this one yet, do yourself a favor and pick it up. I reckon you won't be disappointed. 

The Story starts with Lord Ian MacKenzie buying a Ming Bowl. I know, I know--say what?! but the odd beginning gives as a valuable insight into Ian's character, and outlines it straight away. It also introduces Beth and how they're going to meet. I found the start quite charming and I fell for the dear lord almost immediately. There's just something about him.


The plot itself revolves around Ian and Beth's relationship, of course, but it also combines a murder mystery inside!


Ian MacKenzie, the main male character of this book, is a person with a form of autism previously mentioned by the author to be Asperger's. But living in an era no one knows about the existence of such illness, he's viewed as a mad men. He, himself, believes that he's mad. 

Ian can't look you straight in the eye. He doesn't understand jokes. He can't lie. He'sblunt and honest and doesn't understand subtlety. Sometimes, he's prone to ever-consuming rages that he fears will make him hurt his loved ones. 
In other words; he's completely swoon worthy.
I know, I know; what? But...

Just Finished Reactions: A Mackenzie Family Christmas: The Perfect Gift by Jennifer Ashley
Mackenzie Family Christmas: The Perfect Gift (Highland Pleasures, #4.5) - Jennifer Ashley

What a nice look into the family holidays of the Mackenzies. This novel didn't focus on one couple but really was just like looking in on a bunch of characters you knew once. I actually really liked that. I also liked seeing some secondary characters have some screen time, which only makes me want to read their books more... If they have books. I hope they do! Anyway great quick read. I :)

The Many Sins of Lord Cameron (Highland Pleasures, #3)
The Many Sins of Lord Cameron (Highland ... The Many Sins of Lord Cameron (Highland Pleasures, #3) - Jennifer Ashley I wanted to like this so much, and overall, it was an enjoyable read. I liked the characters, but I had major problems believing certain aspects of Cameron's back story with his first wife, Elizabeth. When her postpartum depression turned vicious, I do not understand why Cameron didn't pack her off to some discreet asylum rather than allowing her to live in the house with their son, especially after the incident with the lit cigar. If someone is determined to harm their child, I don't understand the other parent not taking firm steps to remove the danger. Cameron knew that Elizabeth could cajole the servants into allowing her into his room to abuse him, so it makes no sense that Cameron would think she wouldn't be able to get to Daniel any time she wanted. Yet she remained in the house. Even if Cameron hesitated to send her to an asylum because of Ian's experience, I would think that hesitation would disappear after Elizabeth became a clear danger to Daniel. None of that was truly addressed, and that lack cost the book a star in this review.
