My Review:

The talented writing of Jennifer Ashley strikes again! By the end of The Many Sins of Lord Cameron, you will find yourself falling head over heels for the sinfully delicious (and tortured) hero, Cam, wishing that he was yours to heal with love. You may even become envious of Ainsley, though only because Cam is hers, as she is an otherwise lovely and enjoyable heroine.

From the very beginning of this series, Ashley drew the readers in, making us fall for each and everyone of the mad, tortured, and devilishly handsome Mackenzie men. We've watched first Ian, and then Mac, fall for their true loves, and now it's Cam's turn. Ashley simply has a gift with her storytelling, making her romance novels so much more than just a steamy sex novel. Heart-wrenching romance, balanced with a good amount of steamy sex, and an underlying storyline all contribute to the book's enjoyment—everything about it seems real, as if, where you able to go back in time to this exact year in England, you would be able to find the Mackenzie men just as Ashley described, lost and looking for their soul mates.

After living through the nightmare that was once his life, Cam is finally saved when Ainsley sweeps into his life, taking his heart as easily as she manages to pick a lock while working for the Queen. At least he fights it, afraid to give in, afraid to share his torture, his life of hell, with such a wonderful and innocent woman. But as love works it's magic on the two of them, they soon figure out that together they are able to work through just about anything, a feat that cannot be accomplished by themselves.

5 STARS! Potential readers, be warned: Cam's story may be so gut-wrenching, so honest, that a few tears may fall while reading it. This is normal, and is, in fact, the sign of a good book, as well as a sign of a talented author at work. I've cried, at some point or another, during all three of Ashley's books so far (in the Mackenzie series, that is), and I expect that when Hart's story finally comes out my reaction will be no different. This one is joining my shelf of favorites, along with the previous two—and an empty spot will sit next to it, waiting for the next book in this fantastic series!

Thanks to Night Owl Reviews, where I received this book for free in exchange for reviewing the book. (Free book does not equal biased review, however!) This review is the property of NOR.

Note: This is a book I read earlier this year, but never posted the review here on the blog after it went up on NOR.

Thanks for stopping by!
That's not silly! I know that sometimes we pick up a romance and feeling deeply for the characters, espeically when pain is involved, is not the sort of thing we want to do at that time. :) But I must say, when you get the time, I would highly recommend reading this series again--I think you will enjoy it!

Have you read any others by her, from any of the genres?
