Description

A fugitive Highlander. 

A proper English lady. 

A dangerous liaison. 

Alec Mackenzie knows Lady Celia is key to finding his missing brother. The trouble is, Alec is supposed to be dead, and he needs the world to keep believing that. 

The artful ways of Alec Mackenzie. 

Alec will do anything to find his brother, Will, including pretend to be a penniless drawing master to London aristocrats. The one man who might know where his brother is being held is a powerful duke, and that duke has daughter who needs art lessons.... 

Lessons can lead to startling revelations....

Lady Celia is intrigued by the Scotsman, so obviously a warrior who pretends he is not. She's also intrigued by his instruction on painting the human form, something no young lady should take an interest in. But Celia, ruined by The Disaster and already beyond hope, dares to let the Highlander teach her all he knows.... 

Note: Alec Mackenzie is the brother of Malcolm from The Stolen Mackenzie Bride. He is an ancestor of the Mackenzie family whose story begins with The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie.

4.5 Stars I Love the Mackenzies

I couldn't wait for this book to come out. I love JA books regarding the MacKenzie family. It's like reading about old friends, especially since Ian and Beth are part of the story. I agree that the streaminess does not match the book about Ian or Cameron, however, the story holds your attention as you wonder what will happen next. I am looking forward to the story about Will.

I always enjoy Angela Dawe.

Not as hot and steamy as her previous books

I enjoyed the book with all the intrigue and mystery. But I missed all the hot and steamy sex
scenes as she had in her previous books. It was the last three hours of the book that I enjoyed the most. A lot of the first few hours could have been shortened. I am hoping the next book about Will will have more steam. But with the same excitement and suspense.

Enjoyable

Setting: London, England 1746
Genre: Romance
The book begins in 1892 with Ian Mackenzie in the attic of Kilmorgen Castle going through family documents and old letters. When his wife joins him, he tells her the story of his lateral ancestor, Alec Mackenzie.
After the battle at Culloden Moor the Mackenzie family (Daniel, Duke of Kilmorgen, and his 3 sons Malcolm, Alec, and Will) were declared dead. Instead, they had escaped to France to wait until they had been cleared of treason. But Will returned to Scotland and was arrested. So Alec, an artist, went to England to find out where he was being held. Disguised and using a fake name, he moves into the household of Lady Flora, Dowager Marchioness of Ellesmere who has agreed to help him. Rumor has it that the Duke of Crenshaw’s regiment is involved in keeping prisoners. In order to get information, Alec is to give drawing lessons to the Duke’s daughter, Lady Celia Fotheringhay. Celia’s mother is allowing her to learn because she had refused to marry the man of her mother’s choice, despite being pawed and forcibly kissed by that man. At least as a portraitist, to her mother’s thinking, she will be useful in supporting the Whigs. Over the course of the next while, Celia takes instruction and Alec spends his free time hunting down information about where the captured Scots are being held. And during this time, their attraction for one another grows.
The story is well told, with well-rounded characters. The only thing I found confusing was the inclusion of Alec’s daughter. Her presence added nothing to the direction of the story. She could have been edited out and the gist of it would have stayed the same. Other than that, I found the book to be quite entertaining.
The narration by Angela Dawe is excellent. I have found her too laconic in some of her performances in this series, but her pacing in this production is good. She does a good job of differentiating well between characters, and she does well with both genders. Her Scottish accent sounds authentic without being unintelligible.

Not her best, but the story is good

I love this series, but as others have commented, this one isn’t as steamy! Love the Ian and Beth tidbits. Angela Dawe is fantastic (as usual), but gave “dynasty” the American pronunciation in this one. She usually catches it. ;)

Excellent story!

I have read everything written by Jennifer Ashley and I can honestly say that I have never once been disappointed. She is just one of those authors that you can count to enthrall you in her stories with love, intrigue, espionage, mystery, passion, loyalty, honor, integrity, and most of all, the importance of family. There is so much detail that goes into her stories, you can not help but thoroughly fall in love with all of her characters. I wish she was able to write fast as I believe I could read a book A Week.

The narrator, Angela Dawe did a wonderful job in her narration of the book. Her voice brought forth the conviction, emotion, passion and enthusiasm written so that you felt them. They weren't just words said. Her voice captured your attention and kept you within the storyline. Happy Reading!
