Summary:Lady Isabella Scranton scandalized London by leaving her husband, notorious artist Lord Mac Mackenzie, after only three turbulent years of marriage. But Mac has a few tricks to get the Lady back in his life, and more importantly, back into his bed.

Way back in January, I reviewed the first book in this series The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie. I really enjoyed it and thought it was a fresh take on historical romance. In it we were introduced to Isabella and Mac, the separated married couple who still love each other but can't get past old demons.

Overall, it was an enjoyable book. It is a nice twist to read a book that is not about getting married, but really about staying so. Life has some rough twists for these two characters and they have to learn to deal with them and move past it.

Outside of the romance there is a plot dealing with a identity impersonation that is interesting. And we get to see some of the characters we loved from the first novel (Ian...).

It was enjoyable. I liked it, not as much as the first, but it was still enjoyable. I will definitely read the next one, The Many Sins of Lord Cameron, when it comes out in August!
