Ainsley Douglas is a respectable but poor widow in the employ of the queen. And the queen has sent her on an important mission. To retrieve potential damaging letters that are now in residence of one Lord Cameron Mackenzie, a man who Ainsley has had embarrassing encounters with in the past.
Cam cannot believe his eyes! That Douglas woman has once again broken into his bedchamber. He does not care why she is there all he knows is that for the last six years he has not been able to forget the woman who turned down his advances, claiming she wanted to stay true to her much older husband. Now that husband has passed leaving Ainsley available. Will he be able to convince her to become his latest paramour?
Although this is the third book in the Highland Pleasures series, it is the first book that I picked up not knowing. I actually had no idea that this is one of a four book series until I picked up the first book, THE MADNESS OF LORD IAN MACKENZIE and came across some familiar characters. THE MANY SINS OF LORD CAMERON is a stand-alone book, and WOW! Does it stand tall! I thoroughly adored this book.
Those Mackenzie brothers are breathtaking leading men. Cameron has no desire to become seriously involved with a woman and is a scandalous womanizer. Yet women are more than willing to toss themselves into his embrace. That is why he just can’t understand why Ainsley is holding back, drat the woman. Is this a unique storyline? Not in the slightest. But what makes this book exciting is that Ainsley is not like most heroines. How many highborn ladies can pick a lock and sneak into a man’s bedroom not once but twice? You just gotta love this woman!
I applaud Ms. Ashley and her offering THE MANY SINS OF LORD CAMERON and cannot wait to get my hands on the other two books in the Highland Pleasures series. This is a fast paced page-turner that kept me intrigued and on the edge of my seat. Lovers of Regency Romance will not want to miss out on this one.
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
