The Devilish Lord Will

Will Mackenzie usually works alone but then Josette will come to him with a request to help her group find a trove of gold. He will team up with Josette to help find the gold that is lost somewhere in the highlands, which will help Highland women who lost a lot in the war. Will trusts Josette, they had worked together as man and wife and she was the woman he loved.

The Devilish Lord Will is the tenth book from the series Mackenzies & McBrides by Jennifer Ashley. I have followed this series from the beginning and have loved most of the books. Anything with Ian has always been fantastic to read. This book was good but by no means was it my favorite.

I think it was a good story but I found it a little boring at times. It didn’t drive me to read and want to know more. I am not always a big spy reader but it wasn’t even that. Maybe there wasn’t enough to really draw me into that story. Although, it was still good just took me longer to finish. I did enjoy the characters of Will and Josette. I liked that they had been a team beforehand which of course turned to lovers. I enjoyed their teamwork and I think Jennifer Ashley wrote them well. There was sweet interactions between them that showed Will truly loved Josette and her daughter.

Of course when the next book to the series comes out I will read it right away because I really can’t get enough of this series.

Alec Mackenzie’s Art of Seduction

Alec Mackenzie was in search of his brother, Will. He disguised himself as a French painter who was to teach Lady Celia, whose father was thought to have information on his brother. Alec was to get that information any way but he found that he could not use Lady Celia. Instead he will help her and surprisingly she will help him

Lady Celia had lived through scandal and was suffering the consequences. She was instructed to learn to paint portraits and she was to learn by a Mr. Finn. Celia will soon learn that all was not what it seemed when he it came to Mr. Finn.

Alec Mackenzie’s Art of Seduction is the ninth book to the series Mackenzie’s and McBrides by Jennifer Ashley. I really loved this book. Though whenever I read anything with the Mackenzies I will almost always love the book.

Alec was a warrior and playing a part to help find information on his brother who had been captured. Alec is a good man who will do anything for his family. Though he does stop before any harm could be done to Celia. I liked that he did not lie to her for long. They made a good team as they worked together to find Alec’s brother Will. I loved that Alec really did treat Celia as an equal. Celia was a good daughter. She was not the spoiled girl that everyone thought. She had lived through years of her mother ordering about and a scandal that had happened because of her mother. Celia tried her best but I was happy to read that she was spreading her wings and taking chances. I did not want her to be weak because that was how English ladies were supposed to act.

The mystery behind Will’s capture was intriguing and of course it sets up for the next book which will feature Will Mackenzie.
