Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Ashley's steamy third Highland Pleasures novel (after 2010's Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage) matches up widow Ainsley Douglas, an attendant to Queen Victoria who lives her life in gray to match the queen's perpetual mourning, and horse-mad widower Lord Cameron Mackenzie, scarred emotionally and physically by his insane wife. The queen sends Ainsley to the duke of Kilmorgan's estate to retrieve damaging letters being used for blackmail. There Ainsley encounters Lord Cameron, the duke's brother, with whom she shared an attraction years before. As they travel from the Highlands to the French Riviera, Ainsley and Cameron find that mutual passion softens his burdens. While the story offers no surprises, readers will love Ainsley, a strong, independent, cake-loving character who takes the time to consider her options rather than just throwing caution to the wind and following Cameron when he arrogantly beckons. (Aug.)
From the Publisher
"Ashley's latest flawlessly written historical romance richly rewards romance [fans] with its multilayered characterization; sexy, secrets-saturated plotting; sharp wit; and enthralling writing." —Booklist Starred Review
Library Journal
The first time Cameron Mackenzie found Ainsley Douglas in his bedroom, she was stealing a necklace; the next time, six years later, she was on a mission to retrieve incriminating letters for the Queen. Both times, she avoided seduction, but Cam is not about to let the lovely widow escape again as the Mackenzie black sheep carefully sets out to claim his prize. Deceit, blackmail, and subterfuge keep the tension high as Cam and Ainsley thrust and parry in this steamy, compelling Victorian. VERDICT Passionate, well-drawn characters, breathless romance, and a memorable love story will leave readers checking out the earlier books in the series and anxiously awaiting the last in the quartet, The Duke's Perfect Wife. Ashley (Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage) lives in the Southwest.
