First some background: This is the 3rd book in a series about four Scottish brothers with serious reputations. One thing that can be said for all of them is that they’re hardheaded. And wear kilts.
Ainsley Douglas is having deja-vu when she finds herself hiding in Cameron Mackenzie’s room in search of stolen property. This is the 2nd time in her life she’s had a run in with the Scottish horse master, and though her body is telling her “hey, this is AWESOME!” her brain is like, “oohhhh snap I’m in big trouble.” When Cameron finds Ainsley, he plays it surprisingly cool, letting her off with the threat of having to pay up later. Ainsely, you see, is looking for letters that belong to Queen Victoria. These letters, she believes, are being hidden by a woman that happens to be Cameron’s latest sexual exploit.
The Many Sins of Lord Cameron is a witty and sexy tale of sparring between two fascinating characters: easy-going Ainsley and predatory Cameron. Well, I say predatory, but in reality Cameron is a bit of a kitten. Though the man would never admit it. I’ve read one other Mackenzie book, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie, and I enjoyed it immensely, if only because Ian has serious Asperger’s and is an incredibly unusual hero. I enjoyed this book as well, and it was fun seeing the brooding Mackenzie get his happy ending.
This is a very enjoyable regency series (and a RITA nominee I might add), and I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking for a little Scots love with very Manly Men.
