  • Edited to add a note from the author which can be found at the end of this review.Review contains minor spoilersThis is my first read of any of Jennifer Ashley s works and I was not disappointed, in fact, I was very, very pleased I found her writing style to be flowing and well thought out, and her ability to weave a tale that kept me wondering, sighing and hopeful through the entire novel made this, for me, a story that was un put downable Yep, I made up that word grins This is one of those tim [...]


  • Almost everyone who s read this book loved it to pieces, so my expectations were pretty high when I started it High expectations can be a blessing or a curse Now that I finished this read, I can t help wondering what is wrong with me because, I m sorry to say, I don t understand what all the fuss is about.I liked Ms Ashley s writing this was my 1st book by her and I thought the premise the hero is mad was interesting and unique, but the romance didn t work for me Lust was very well depicted and [...]


  • 2.5 stars view spoiler I m rounding up to prove that I m not a complete asshole all the time hide spoiler So, first things first The male lead in this book, Lord Ian MacKenzie, has Asperger Syndrome I just set you on edge, didn t I You re having flashbacks to Real, aren t you Go ahead and release that breath you didn t realize you d been holding, because I m here to tell you that this aspect of the novel is handled very well Ian hyper focuses on objects, he s obsessed with patterns, he doesn t a [...]


  • The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie established to me that it would be a great read from the first page Ian is such an unusual hero, and he is thoroughly lovable And Beth is one of those rare heroines who really does deserve a hero like Ian Their relationship felt right and it felt meant to be Watching them grow closer, to acknowledge their unique, rich relationship, was very gratifying Their bond was emotional, sensual, spiritual, and intellectual Although there were parts of each other that they [...]


  • 5 Wickedly Sinful Stars I ve never been with a lady before.I don t know the rules Lord Ian MacKenzieLord Ian is mad Or at least everyone thinks he is But there is so much to him than meets the eye He is a collector of precious things and he wants Beth in his bed When I saw you, I knew I had to take you away from him He had no idea what you were worthBethBeth may be a beautiful, rich lady, but she s no angel From the moment Lord Ian Mackenzie catches her eye, she is lost to desire Her late husba [...]


  • Ian cannot do something so simple as hold a woman s hand He moves his thumb up my wrist and under my glove, finding points that shoot wild heat through my body He caresses the inside of my palm with soft fingers, and then he threads his fingers through mine and holds hard, as though teaching me that my hand belongs there with his I am simply in love with this book I am in love with Ian I am in love with Beth I am in love with all Ian s brothers One of the most beautiful historical romances I ve [...]


  • FULL REVIEW NOW POSTEDIt s beautiful It s thoughtful It s special Love you The man who couldn t look anyone in the eyes was making himself do it, no matter what the pain He was giving her a gift, the greatest one he could, straight from his heart.4.5 stars.London, 1881Ian had lived with a raw pain for so long He doesn t always know how to express his emotions, but that doesn t mean he doesn t feel them deeply Ian is a special man He avoids to look people into their eyes and his attention wanders [...]


  • Book 1 in the Highland Pleasures series A gem The most amazing, memorable and special hero, Lord Ian Mackenzie.I was not a GR member when I read all my historical romances Thus I never wrote a review, only rated each book Lord Ian Mackenzie 27 years youngest son of a Duke dark brown auburn hair amber eyes Beth 29 years widow dark brown hair blue eyes Ian is on my list of top 100 heroes For me he is unforgettable Beth was wonderful everything Ian needed She not only settled all his demons, but sh [...]


  • This is one of the best historical romances I have ever read Beth is a widower, who inherited a small fortune after being a companion to a wealthy elderly woman She s not exactly noble rich, but enough that several men have come sniffing around trying to marry her She catches the eye of Lord Ian Mackenzie, who people say is insane due to his strange public behavior, rages, and inability to act like everyone else in crowds Ian has Asperger s, but is mainly the high functioning sort He is a genius [...]


  • When I picked this book up knowing that it featured a hero with Asperger s, I imagined the crux of the story would be about Beth and Ian learning to love each other despite his emotional detatchment I didn t feel like I got that.There s no real discussion of how Ian and Beth came to love each other I noticed they had great, wall banging sex often, but that was the extent of the romance, it seems There were few scenes that showed them interacting with their clothes on over something mundane Sure, [...]


  • You are a rogue and a scoundrel, and I love every single second of it Lord Ian Mackenzie was deemed a lunatic at an early age by the courts and thrown into an asylum until his brother, the Duke, rescued him a few years later He is known as the Mad Mackenzie He has rages and quirks that most people just can t comprehend in this time in history He is also extremely intelligent and can remember conversations verbatim Oh yea did I mention is he tall, gorgeous, protective and sexy as hell Well he is, [...]


  • Rereading after 6 years of reading it for the first time Still one of my favorite HR ever This book is so unique Love Ian and Beth


  • 4 StarsOverall Opinion This was a super cute and enjoyable read I enjoyed it, especially because of the H I floved him My heart broke for all that he went through and how misunderstood he was for his time I also really appreciated how the h cared for him how he was, and never tried to change who he was I would recommend this for anybody trying out the HR genre I don t normally read the HR genre, but this has to be one of my favorites so far Brief Summary of the Storyline This is Beth and Ian s s [...]


  • Wow How can I rate a book than five stars Even after all the hype, this book still held up I guess all I can do is put it on my all time favorites bookshelf.Lord Ian is intense and he leaped off the pages and into my arms I wondered how Jennifer Ashley was going to present his POV, since he has Asperger syndrome, and at times it was almost as if it was written by someone else, the tone is so substantially different.Here is a scene, from the heroine s POV, from early in the book when the hero, I [...]


  • Reto 47 PopSugar 2017 Un libro con un personaje exc ntricoUna historia muy atractiva, una combinaci n de romance e intriga con personajes que escapan al estereotipo que se suele encontrar en las novelas de este g nero Ian tiene un trastorno conductual que en la actualidad es adecuadamente diagnosticado y tratado, pero no sorprende que en la poca en que est ambientada la novela se considerara como un tipo de locura y, que quienes lo padec an, terminaran en un manicomio con los horribles tratamien [...]


  • Here s to the crazy ones The misfits The rebels The troublemakers The round pegs in the square holes The ones who see things differently They re not fond of rules And they have no respect for the status quo You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them About the only thing you can t do is ignore them Year 1881MADNESSSome people are mad in love.When love is not madness, it is not love image error Some are mad in passion.Some are mad in obsession.And some are simply mad.He is all [...]


  • I was super excited to read this book, seeing as everyone loved this book, and I love Jennifer Ashley Allyson James I was not disappointed This has one of the best storylines I ve ever read I won t summarize since so many people have reviewed and or summarized, but can I just say Wow Lord Ian Mackenzie is the youngest of 4 brothers and he has a slight disability He doesn t understand emotion For example, he can play a piano piece perfectly after only having heard it once, but he can t feel the e [...]


  • Lord Ian Mackenzie is known as the Mad Mackenzie having being shut in a asylum for most of his youth and freed by his brother on his cruel fathers death But mad or not there is something different about Ian Mackenzie, unable to relate to others and comfortable on his own, afraid that his rages will hurt someone But when he see s Beth, he wants her and knows he must save her from a disatrous marriage so he is able to keep her for hisself as his sancturary and also keep her away from the sordid s [...]


  • If two people can t communicate on the same level how can they fall in love This was my problem with the story I really felt that the author didn t show why these two loved each other The hero didn t understand any of the heroine s attempts at humor and he wasn t a funny guy either Your typical banter wit or love hate or simple friendship is not there either Ian lives in his own world really and is unable to convey emotion apart from rage and desire How can you love someone if you don t even kno [...]


  • Oh, oh, oh I loved, loved, loved The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie by Jennifer Ashley I began the book two hours ago and could NOT put it down I laughed and I cried from both sadness and joy The characters and the plot are at times mysterious and softly heartbreaking, but the ending is probably one of the best I ve ever read.She is Mrs Beth Acklerly, the impoverished daughter of a sham French peer and a disowned daughter of an English squire She was saved from life on the streets by a poor vicar [...]


  • 5 STARS image error We don t fit in you and me, he said We re both oddities no one knows what to do with But we fit together He took her hand, pressed her palm to his, then laced their fingers through each other s We fit WOW WOW WOW What a fabulous and wickedly romantic story This was the first book I ve read from Jennifer Ashley, and I have to say, I went and purchased the entire series from before I was even finished Of course, I am a bit partial, I admit to Alpha males Especially Scottish men [...]

  • Updated 4 12 13 In my original review, I said I thought I allowed my own expectations to ruin it for me and I was right After a second read, I was struck by how awesome this book truly is In fact, it s going on my favorite list, with Ian leading the way He is a one of a kind character and I adore him Original Review I went into this book with high expectations due to the high reviews and I think those expectations ruined the book for me I still liked it though 3.5 stars.

  • Fabulous fabulous book I can t say enough good things about the deft development of characters, the remarkable pacing and the emotional punch I loved every word of it It s an instant favorite, and one I will reread again and again Brilliant.


  • I had no idea what a cunny was and why the hero wanted to kiss it, but now I do.Meet Ian The mad MacKenzie.He apparently suffers from Aspergers syndrome I can t say that I wasn t interested to discover how that would work out a fluffy romance hero with a mental condition to swoon over But my starting point was expecting to enjoy the interesting edge that Ian s autism would bring to the story There s so much going on in The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie though, none of which is executed properly [...]


  • Creating a romance character with Asperger Syndrome AS is a very risky thing to do Although I would say the same with another genres of fiction, with romance it s a lot harder A romance fiction requires abundant emotions in it s story, characters, and writing I have no idea why the author chose AS I know a few things about AS There are so many medical conditions and yet she chose to use a psychological development disorder, which has everything to do with limited ability in communicating and und [...]
