Review: Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage by Jennifer Ashley


Author: Jennifer Ashley
Titel: Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage
Publisher: Berkley
Genre: Historic Romance
Series:  Highland Pleasures #2
Published: July 6th 2010 
Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
Summary (Goodreads)
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.
That's another review I completely forgot about. Not that the book is that bad. Quite the contrary. After I read the third book in the series, I went back and reread the earlier ones. Actually this book here was the first in the series I ever read, and it made me curious enough to read the first one, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie, as well.
Jennifer Ashley continues to write unusual historic romances. Normally  a book ends with a declaration of love or a wedding. In this case we start six years into the marriage and three years after the separation. Which brings up a lot of questions: Why are they separated? Why did they get married? Do they still love each other? Will there be a happy end? 
I don't want to take away too much but all of these questions will be answered. It's a nice change to show in a historic romance book that love isn't the solution to all problems. Isabella and Mac have to make it work. Both main characters are as lovely as they can be. Mac, the formerly decadent artist, which is now fighting for his marriage with wit, humor and sensitivity. And Isabella has to start trusting again, after many disappointments. I enjoyed this book massively.

Historical romance is my favorite genre and this author is fairly new for me. I have read only one of her books so far, "The Pirate Next Door" and loved it immensely and am anxious to get started on this series. Although I love HAEs, I love even more the journey the characters take to get that point. I'm glad to hear that you "enjoyed this book massively" and that I'm on the right track with this author.

I'm a fan of historical romance genre. I think it's really nice to get a glimpse of how people were back then.
