Lord Cameron MacKenzie, one of the domineering, wild independent Scottish brothers loves two things in life: horses and women. In that order. Well, he also loves his brothers and son Daniel. Like each of his brothers, Cameron has a secret. He also has his reasons for his debauched and raucous life style. Moving from woman to woman before any become too close he knows how to give pleasure where and when it counts, but never in his bed.

Ainsley Douglas has her share of secrets as well as a strong sense of duty. Both work well for her in her position within the Queen’s household. Sent by the Queen to retrieve some highly personal letters Ainsley finds herself wrapped in Cameron’s life in more ways than one. She tries her best to avoid the MacKenzie Lord, but time and again her finds attraction to him growing. When Cameron saves the Queen’s reputation for Ainsley, she begins to succumb to his charm. But Cameron wants more than a delectable night with Ainsley. Can he put aside his own dark secret and trembling long enough to find his way to her?

This third installment of Jennifer Ashley’s MacKenzie brothers series was far too long in coming. I loved Ian and Mac’s stories and really thought they would be a tough act to follow. Cam’s story is equally delectable. Ms. Ashley has given each of the brothers their own personal pain and portrays it so emotionally you want to reach out and comfort each of them. Each is unique, so very different and wonderfully drawn. She deals with each of their issues, through her heroines, with warmth, compassion and ultimately, love.

With Daniel Ms. Ashley delivers another level of family into the story. She teases her readers that after eldest brother Hart’s story there might be more—after all, Ainsley has four brothers and Daniel is growing up.

Ms. Ashley writes love scenes that are sensual, have you holding your breath and leave you wanting more. Hopefully Hart’s story won’t be long in the making!

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
