A WOMAN OF BREEDING MEETS A MAN OF NO STANDING…

To redeem her family’s disgraced name, Lady Louisa Scranton has decided to acquire a proper husband. He needs to be a man of fortune and highly respectable in order to restore both her family’s lost wealth and reputation. She enters the Marriage Mart with all flags flying, determined to find the right bachelor.

But Louisa’s hopes are dashed when the Bishop of Hargate drops dead at her feet–and she is shockingly accused of murder! Soon, Louisa’s so-called friends begin shunning her, because the company of a suspected killer is never desirable in polite society.

The problem comes to the ears of Detective Inspector Lloyd Fellows, by-blow of the decadent Scottish Mackenzie family and an inspector for Scotland Yard. He has shared two passionate kisses with Lady Louisa-and vows to clear her name. For not only does he know she’s innocent, he recognizes he’s falling for the lovely lady.

Fellows is Louisa’s only hope of restoring her family’s honor–and it is he alone who intrigues Louisa in a way that may be even more scandalous than murder…

MY THOUGHTS:
THE UNTAMED MACKENZIE by Jennifer Ashley is an exciting Historical Romance. #5.5 of the “Highland Pleasures” series, but can be read as a stand alone. Fast paced and filled with mystery, murder, mayhem, passion and suspense. This is Lady Louisa Scranton and Detective Inspector Lloyd Fellows,who just happens to be a Scottish Mackenzie laird’s by-blow and an inspector for Scotland Yard. When Louisa is accused of murder, Lloyd is determined to clear her name, although, she does fire his blood as well. Louisa is intrigue by Lloyd as well as intrigues her. Passion ignites and the rest they say is history…..
For a fast paced romp through the English parish. A man of little standing meets a woman accused of murder,sparks ignite and they are in for a fight of their lives to save Lousia and find a killer. A great read! Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.
