The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (Mackenzies & McBrides #1) by Jennifer Ashley
The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie - Jennifer Ashley

“Do you mind my madness? Even if you’re right that I can contain the rages, I will always be mad. I won’t get better.” “I know.” Beth snuggled against his chest. “It’s part of the very intriguing package that is Ian Mackenzie.”

 

*** ABOUT THE BOOK ***

 

Title: The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (Mackenzies & McBrides #1)

Author: Jennifer Ashley

Genre: Historical Romance

 

Goodreads Amazon

 

*** BOOK BLURB ***

 

The year is 1881. Meet the Mackenzie family—rich, powerful, dangerous, eccentric. A lady couldn't be seen with them without ruin. Rumors surround them—of tragic violence, of their mistresses, of their dark appetites, of scandals that set England and Scotland abuzz.

The youngest brother, Ian, known as the Mad Mackenzie, spent most of his young life in an asylum, and everyone agrees he is decidedly odd. He's also hard and handsome and has a penchant for Ming pottery and beautiful women.

Beth Ackerley, widow, has recently come into a fortune. She has decided that she wants no more drama in her life. She was raised in drama—an alcoholic father who drove them into the workhouse, a frail mother she had to nurse until her death, a fussy old lady she became constant companion to. No, she wants to take her money and find peace, to travel, to learn art, to sit back and fondly remember her brief but happy marriage to her late husband.

And then Ian Mackenzie decides he wants her.

 

*** REVIEW ***

 

 

I really thought I would like this book more than I did. It got 3 stars only because plot was different from usual historical romance - murder mystery and main hero with Aspergers.

 

The main off putting thing for me was jumping between narrators in the middle of the paragraphs. Also if book has a main character with a mental disorder, you would think it would be explored much deeper. His mental disability and ability to be in a relationships was really downplayed.

 

Don't think I will be reading further books in the series.

Midnight Wolf - Jennifer Ashley

I...liked it.

 

It has its own plot - nobody trying to take over the shifters, nobody getting sucked into Fairy, and while there is a bad guy, he's only present a few times.

 

Mostly, it's the H, the h, and the H's kid, running, spending time together, making friends...

The h is a fox shifter. Her ancestors were created by some of Lady Aisling's people, and were gifted with magic. She's managed to elude the shifter bureau for years. Someone enlightened them to her existence though and they want her for various reasons. They force the H to capture her, but things go awry there so she, the H, and his kid spend an extended period of time hiding and running.

Red Wolf (A Shifters Unbound Novel) - Jennifer Ashley

I was mostly meh about the main characters, and the plot is a variation on the theme "the fae wanna control their battle beasts". I think at this point, I mostly read for those brief moments Zander shows up...and maybe the house.

So...

Tiger Striped - Jennifer Ashley

Very short novella where Tiger, Carly, and Conner go on a mission to rescue someone Tiger doesn’t know but knows he has to get to her fast.   The drive to find her is painful and insistent and Carly refuses to let Tiger go on another adventure without her there to protect him.  They are chased by black ops soldiers, cops, and park rangers.  Who they find in the basement of a shack in the mountains of New Mexico will shock those present but will give Tiger back someone he didn’t realize was still alive.  Great story.  The captive is a captivating character and the attraction between her and Conner definitely spells another book in the future.  Enjoyable and entertaining

Midnight Wolf - Jennifer Ashley

The story line was good. The characters were interesting and well developed. The conflict was strong and I liked the surprises along the way. It was slow at times, but I liked it better than Red Wolf. It is set in New Orleans so Jasmine’s haunted house plays a brief roll (YAY!) and Ben is in it, as well as Lady Aisley. I definitely want Ben’s book, it is high time he got his happily ever after. Overall I enjoyed it, but I didn’t devour it like others.
