The gossip of London's elite reigned supreme that Lord Mackenzie was a murder, one who lived a misspent youth in an asylum - a man no one could trust - a man no lady should dare consider a suitor. Indeed, all ladies who slipped in the sphere of his influence were brought to immediate and total ruin, as far as reputations are concerned.

Yet, there is one woman who hopes she is the exception to these dirty social rules. Beth is that woman; she finds herself inextricably and inexorably drawn to the Scottish aristocrat Mackenzie, this lord with a hint of brogue which clothes her like silken feathers, this man with a seductive touch which entangles her every waking thought, even those spent away from him.

Was he decadent, yes. Was he intimidating, absolutely. Beth could see that he was also vulnerable. A man who clearly needed help. Her help. Indeed, the only thing clear and sensible to Beth now was Ian's brilliant flash of madness.

Jennifer Ashley is a bestselling author on the USA and New York Times lists. Having lived and traveled worldwide, she currently resides in the Southwest. Her romance novels are historical and contemporary in genre; when she writes mysteries, she is known as Ashley Gardner, when urban fantasy and paranormal romance, she is known as Allyson James. Her other hobbies are cooking, hiking, playing instruments such as the flute and the guitar, painting, and creating dollhouses with miniature rooms. She loves to read and write.

It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted-especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy. Despite his decadence and intimidating intelligence, she could see he needed help. Her help. Because suddenly the only thing that made sense to her was the madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie.

    " The best damn bodice ripper I have read in forever! The hero is probably autistic and the herine is refreshingly somewhat of a tart! Fantastic. Oh and the hero says "cunny". Now that's a term thar is so descriptive, it has to come back into our vocabularies. "
