A renowned rake, Cameron Mackenzie doesn’t care if Ainsley Douglas has a virtuous excuse for sneaking around his bedchamber. He only cares that she’s at his mercy. One kiss at a time, he plans to seduce her. But what starts out as a lusty diversion may break Cam’s own rules.

My Review:

Boy do I love these Mackenzie’s. How can you not? In this book Cam finally gets to find his happiness with the lovely Ainsley. Ainsley I loved from page one. She’s spunky and clever and I just found her character to be really fun. Cam’s past is really heartbreaking. As we’ve guessed briefly in the previous books, his ex-wife Elizabeth was abusive towards him, both emotionally and physically. To learn the details of that was very sad and really brings understanding to why he leads his life the way he does now. It’s not often you hear about a man being abused by his wife (instead of the other way around) so I found that interesting to read about while at the same time it was very heartbreaking that he had to go through that.

From the beginning Cam and Ainsley had fantastic chemistry and Jennifer Ashley does an awesome job at throwing in steaminess while still keeping the story about the love — not so much the sex. I think she has a really good mixture down. Sometimes too much sex can make it feel like that’s all the relationship is about. But, at the same time sex is important to a relationship so I find it adds dimension to the romance if done right. Jennifer Ashley does it right. She has a great formula down that works really well.

As for Cam’s healing throughout the book, I liked the way it was done. It was done gradually in small baby steps and I found it very realistic. Of course, with the kind of abuse he took it could have potentially taken longer in real life. But you also have to think that I believe it was at least 10 years or more since he’s been without his ex-wife. So there was probably some healing being done during that time.

I was also impressed by Daniel in this one. In the past books he’s just seemed like a child doing some selfish and foolish things, but at the same time you would feel sorry for him when it comes to Cam as a father, being that Cam was so wrapped up in his own depression. But I liked that we got a better look into their relationship and Daniel really seemed to grow and mature in this one. I’m sure he’ll get his own book down the line once he’s a few years older.

Overall, I really enjoyed this. I love this series and I love the Mackenzie’s. I can be picky about historical romances but this is one series that I’m glad I dived into. I can’t wait to see what happens next with Hart! We see him as this hard cold man in the background most of the time, so it’ll be nice to see his softer side next. :)
