Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The guests have assembled, the minister is waiting, and Juliana St. John is ready to get married. But where is the groom? As Juliana soon discovers, Grant Barclay has eloped with his piano teacher. While trying to compose herself, Juliana runs into Elliot McBride and, in a fit of what she can only call madness, she proposes to him. Much to her surprise, Elliot accepts. Taking advantage of the arrangements already in place, Juliana and Elliot are immediately wed and promptly set off to Elliot’s newly purchased home in the Scottish Highlands. Upon arriving, Juliana discovers that it’s a run-down castle in serious need of work, but that is nothing compared to the time and effort she’ll need to restore Elliot to the man she once knew and loved. RITA Award–winning Ashley excels at creating multilayered, realistically complex characters, and the latest installment in her Mackenzie Brothers series is a richly emotional treat for fans of tortured heroes. Ashley not only handles Juliana’s romantic redemption of Elliot with significant finesse; she also delivers abundant sensual passion. --John Charles

I really enjoyed Elliot and Juliana's story. Ainsley is one of my favorite characters, so I was excited to read about her brother. Elliot and Juliana's commitment and concern for one another is very touching. I was happy that there weren't any contrived misunderstandings, just two kind and intelligent people trying desperately to work through the catastrophic challenges presented by Elliot's understandably vivid PTSD. The many interesting plot twists and secondary characters added depth and flavor to their story. Elliot and Juliana's faith in one-another pays off in a hard earned, but delightfully romantic HEA. Excellent addition to the series. Read it. You won't be disappointed.

Elliot has gone through hell and back, and the only thing that kept him alive was Juliana. Juliana has loved him since childhood, but thought him out of reach. Fate and will put them together in just the right moment.
This is a romance when wedding come first, and the hero and heroine must fight to know each other again, and overcome the darkness Elliot have brought within him from India.
I liked Juliana, most of all her no-nonsense actitud and her logic. I loved Elliot, the scarred and less than perfect man that found love his life saving line. I liked the romance, and the fact that there is not misunderstanding. They speak to each other, which is refreshing.
As usual with every Ashley's book, is very well written, and the glimpse of the Mackenzie family is a plus. Even Ian has a little role, fishing.
If you liked the Mackenzie series, you can give this a try. I think you wont be desapointed.
At the end there is a pick in Daniel Mackenzie story. And only a request: Agent Fellow and Isabella's sister, when are we going to read about them?

Jennifer Ashley is an auto-purchase for me. I loved Ian's story. The other McKenzie brothers had strong stories. I just didn't feel it with this book. The H and h conveniently married each other immediately, consummated their marriage immediately, were always in love with each other. Yes, Eliot has a troubled past and PTSD as a result, but other than that, there was no personal conflict between the two...really no internal conflict within themselves. There was no romantic tension, no emotional rollercoasters...Juliana just kind of went with whatever was thrown at her.
The story is well-written and Ashley has a way with action sequences that may make up for the lack of true romance. The love scenes are hot. But, it's a story we've all read before...Hopefully, Daniel's story will be more intriguing, otherwise, Ashley may want to put the McKenzie (McBride/Fellows/etc...) family to rest.

I was excited about this book, but I think some of the other reviews are right -- it's pretty boring.

First of all, the reader keeps hearing about how the characters loved each other growing up without actually getting the sense that they did. He saved a kite? She was "waiting" for him. Not once did the author make me see that they really loved each other. It sounds more like they had a crush on each other and that was it, but it was more convenient that they deeply loved each other, so that's what she said it was, even though there is nothing to prove it.

Eliott was going to stop the wedding but . . . fell asleep drunk in the chapel just waiting for her to go there? That was never explained how exactly he was going to stop the wedding since he was outside the entire time. He says that Ainsley was letting him know about her life and yet Ainsley' s interactions with both of them dont prove that to be true.

THe whole Stacy timeline/interaction was also really, really dumb. None of that made any sense, at all. I kept waiting for there to be something there that made sense, but, no, there wasn't. I would say more with that plot time but I think it would be too many spoilers.

It seems like the author keep writing herself into a wall so just made up random things to explain them away. It just didn't fit.

Jennifer Ashley continues the Mackenzie series with the story of Elliot McBride, one of Cameron Mackenzie's brothers-in-law. I have only recently caught up on the Mackenzie series and just finished last years fun Mackenzie Christmas novella and equally enjoyable book on Lloyd Fellows, The Untamed Mackenzie (Mackenzies Series), the Mackenzie's illegitimate half-brother who has been a recurring secondary character in the series. So, I had high hopes for this one. And, wow, what a disappointment.

Beautiful, wealthy, organized Juliana St. John is finally getting married. However, one little problem: her long-time betrothed has left her literally standing at the altar. Embarrassed but not heartbroken, she walks to a little side chapel to think and happens to sit on a man stretched out sleeping in a pew, one Elliot McBride, the brother of her dear friend Ainsley Mackenzie. After one sweet kiss with Juliana at the age of 18, Elliot left Scotland with his regiment for India and, now, at around age 30 is finally back, having survived his time in the military, subsequent years as a plantation owner, and brutal capture and torture by Afghani tribesmen who held him prisoner for almost a year. When Juliana half-jokingly proposes that he take the place of her ex-betrothed, he immediately agrees. With this fun and rousing start, off we go. Immediately after, Elliot takes Juliana to his newly purchased, remote, ramshackle castle. A whole new cast of characters is introduced including Elliot's Indian servants, his eccentric uncle, and equally eccentric neighbors.
