Oh those mad, manly, magnificent Mackenzies! How I've missed them. I love their family dynamic; each brother is a truly unique individual and yet they are so firmly bonded in true affection and loyalty. I couldn't imagine that anything could top "The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie", but then I realized that all of the Mackenzies' stories will likely be unique treasures in their own way. I enjoyed Mac and Isabella's story. I especially adored how deeply in love with his wife Mac was, and his ways of expressing it. It was real and sweet and truly emotional. I liked how they worked their way back to each other, despite alot of pain in the process. Especially enjoyed all the brothers' affection for Isabella, their protectiveness and acceptance of her as family, completely. It was fun seeing more of Ian and Beth's story as well. My only complaint? The way-too-long wait (August 2011!) for Cameron's story, as well as Hart's (2012!). Berkley (or whoever makes those decisions).... have mercy on fans of this author because a year is just too darn long.

I love Jennifer Ashley, but I found this book to be boring and too long. I enjoyed the Madness of lord Ian Mackenzie and I look forward to Cameron's book, but this really took to long and i oddly I could not like the two characters. I found that their romance issues could have been easily fixed with a sit down conversation in two pages.

I absolutely love a good redemption story with a bit of groveling and begging. Throw in a little intrigue and identity thief and the fun doubles.

Mac and Isabella had been separated for years. A new, improved sober Mac wanted Isabella back. Or was he really improved? Just because you were a drunken selfish jerk doesnt mean you stop being a selfish jerk when you remove the drunken part, which was something Mac had to come to realize. He was very charming but self-centered and I could totally see why Isabella fell for him. Their interactions were great and I could also see how their marriage fell apart little by little. It was a great reunion story.

Compared to the other two books (Ian and Camerons stories) very little happened but it was still interesting. Although all the brothers were alpha males they were very different which made the series so much better. I hate reading a series made of books that are exactly the same thing.

I think it might be better if you read Ians story first before you read this one, just so you understand the significance of Detective Fellows. The knowledge doesnt make the story but it helps.

Overall, great read. I look forward to Harts story.

Isabella and Mac love each other, but have issues. Mac was a drunk and it took Isabella leaving him for him to get sober. I thought this 2nd chance love story was well done. I liked that each remained faithful to each other throughout their separation (married 3 yrs, separated about 3 1/2 yr before they reunite). I did get a little frustrated with Isabella, she was slow to come around despite the proof that Mac had really changed. The Mackenzie family is interesting, Cameron's story is next (and we meet the heroine in this one- Ainsley, an old school friend of Isabella's). Ian has some good lines in this one.

Lady Isabella caused a scandal by eloping with Lord Mac MacKenzie on the eve of her debut ball. Then she caused another scandal by leaving him three years later. Now she has arrived at Mac's doorstep to tell him someone is copying his paintings. Mac doesn't care who is making money on his art; but he does care about Isabella. She left him because he was a selfish drunk. Now he has cleaned up his act and wants to win Isabella back.

I was looking forward to this book after reading the first book in the series, but I found this story to be very slow. Isabella and Mac still love each other, but have to learn to trust each other again. The secondary story of counterfeit art was kind of interesting, but didn't take up many pages. My rating: 3 Stars.
