Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage

Author: Jennifer Ashley    Series: MacKenzies & McBrides #2

Only one man could match a lady like this—scandal for scandal.

Six years ago, eighteen-year-old Lady Isabella Scranton scandalized all of London by eloping the night of her come-out ball with the notorious rake, Lord Mac Mackenzie. After three turbulent years of marriage, she scandalized London once again—this time by leaving him.

Now Mac has resurfaced, every bit as charismatic, and with one goal: to seduce Isabella back into his life and his bed even if it means acting like a real gentleman. But when Isabella rises to the challenge of posing nude for Mac’s erotic paintings, her pent-up hunger for the decadent rake is exposed as well, and she finds herself unable to resist the smooth strokes of an artist at work.

But someone’s been watching them—dangerously close. This ingenious forger with designs on Mac’s paintings also sets his sights on Isabella herself. Deciding to become Isabella’s protector, Mac vows to never leave her side, whether his independent and proud lady likes it or not.

This book may contain explicit intimate scenes, so if you are not 18+ then I probably wouldn’t recommend it for younger readers.
My Review

After finishing Ian’s story I plowed head first into Mac’s. I didn’t know if it would meet my expectations nor did I know if it would be a good as Ian’s and Beth’s, but lets just say it was very good, quiet satisfying.

I love how Mac is a big strong man’s man but yet he hides a part of him that is broken due to his wife Isabella leaving him 3 years ago. He truly loved her and still does – but he now loves her from a far, giving her time and space to heal from an incident that broke her heart. But after being separated from her he finally realizes an owns up to wanting everything back – her as his wife in more ways than one. So he relentlessly pursues her, trying to win her back but the process isn’t easy as they easily argue and annoy one another plus there is a mad man that is Mac’s doppelganger pretending to be him whom is out to steal his life, his painting career, and more importantly his wife.

I really enjoyed Mac, he was a big personalty an at many times he made me chuckle throughout the book. He was quiet a character that is for sure an I loved reading about him and Aimee – a big strong strapping man whom turns into putty by the mere means of a child. Another thing I love is while this is the second book, the previous main characters from the first book (Ian and Beth) was not forgotten and you got lovely wonderful updates on them – I love it when authors do this with series.

As usual, after finishing this, I went straight into Cam’s, the dark sheep of the family. I cannot wait to see what is in store for him.
