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.
The first of a new historical series.

As usual, I regret that I didn’t review this sooner. My memories of this book are fuzzier than I’d like, but at least I took notes while reading. I’ll do the best I can.Beth Ackerley used to be an elderly woman’s companion until the woman died and left everything to her. Now Beth is a wealthy but lo...
I created a shelf "maybe later", just because of this book. This book is so well-loved, has so many wonderful reviews and I know so many people who read it and absolutely loved it. I combed through all the positive reviews and decided to read this book after much deliberation (The book was staggerin...
It was fine. It didn't turn me into a late-blooming lover of romance novels, but then, that's probably not possible no matter what I read.
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...
