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.

Includes a teaser of Jennifer Ashley’s The Stolen Mackenzie Bride.


Kaylee: You get two novellas, both for the first time in print, for the price of one with The Scandalous Mackenzies by Jennifer Ashley. Because it’s two separate stories, I’ll tell you my thoughts on both of them. I haven’t read any of the other books in either series, but I felt like this was a great introduction to them.

The Untamed Mackenzie If you love solving predictable mysteries, you’ll like this story. When Lady Louisa is accused of murder, Detective Inspector Lloyd Fellows is called to get to the bottom of things. They quickly find themselves falling for each other despite their differences in societal position. I liked these two and especially loved the family’s involvement with the investigation. I haven’t read the other books in the Mackenzies series, but I am interested in reading them now.

Scandal and the Duchess Here’s a fast-paced story about a sexy soldier, Steven, who is picked up by Rose, a widow, on the road. Rose and Steven are humorous and fun, and I loved their personalities. There’s a little mystery, and my only complaint about this story is that I wanted more of it!

{Review} Nova by Rebecca Yarros

We loved so many things about NOVA by Rebecca Yarros, but the annoying heroine and the unnecessary drama made us not love the book overall.
