Two terrific novellas about one large, interesting family. These historical stories are unique and different. The characters are not the ones you would expect, though they are all somewhat related to the Scottish Mackenzie family. Lloyd Fellows is actually a bastard son while Steven McBride’s sister married into the family. Steven’s love interest though is a young woman who people think killed her husband while Lloyd’s lady love seems to have killed a bishop! Members of the Mackenzie family pop in and out of each story adding a bit more life and reality to each. And, while you don’t have to read any other stories to enjoy these, this family is quite entertaining. Besides, who doesn’t love men in kilts? Fast paced and totally thrilling, these historical romance stories will keep you glued to the page and leave you wanting more. I love reading about the Mackenzie family and all their friends. Plus these stories have a bit of mystery to them which makes them more than just a romance.
Lady Louisa is at a tea party when the bishop falls over dead. The only person around is Louisa and everyone is sure she did it. Detective Chief Inspector Lloyd Fellows is called to work on the case. Even though Lloyd has a history with Louisa, he refuses to leave the case. He knows everything points to her doing the murder but he’s sure she didn’t. Can he keep his personal feelings separate from his professional ones?
Steven McBride has returned home on leave from the Army. He has an errand he has to do but other than that he plans on gambling and womanizing until he meets up with Rose Barclay. Rose is a young widow who has been thrown out of her home and is being hounded by the press. Steven comes up with a plan to help them both but what happens when things turn serious?
The New York Times bestselling author of the seductive Mackenzies series once again sweeps readers away with two Mackenzies novellas together for the first time.
The Untamed Mackenzie
When Lady Louisa Scranton of the decadent Scottish Mackenzie family is accused of murder, Detective Inspector Lloyd Fellows of Scotland Yard, vows to clear her name. He’s already shared kisses with Lady Louisa, and not only is he convinced of her innocence, he’s falling for her. And while he may be the only hope of restoring her family’s honor, he intrigues Louisa in a way that may be even more scandalous than murder.
Scandal and the Duchess
Scandal follows Rose Barclay, young widow of the Duke of Southdown, wherever she goes. And now she’s been kicked out of her rightful home. But the dashing Scot Steven McBride—a decorated soldier who is notorious for heavy gambling and womanizing during his leave time—comes up with a ruse to foil the journalists and save Rose’s inheritance. But Rose will have to go along with his very scandalous proposal.
