Date Read: 2014
Genre: Historical, Romance
Lady Eleanor Ramsay is the only one who knows the truth about Hart Mackenzie. Once his fiancée, she is the sole woman to whom he could ever pour out his heart.
Hart has it all—a dukedom, wealth, power, influence, whatever he desires. Every woman wants him—his seductive skills are legendary. But Hart has sacrificed much to keep his brothers safe, first from their brutal father, and then from the world. He's also suffered loss: his wife, his infant son, and the woman he loved with all his heart though he realized it too late.
Now Eleanor has reappeared on Hart's doorstep, with scandalous nude photographs of Hart taken long ago. Intrigued by the challenge in her blue eyes—and aroused by her charming, no-nonsense determination—Hart wonders if his young love has come to ruin him . . . or save him.

First Thought when Finished: The Duke’s Perfect Wife was fantastic. I loved Eleanor!
Overall Thoughts: I loved Hart and Eleanor’s story. I knew that I was going to love Eleanor because she was so straight spoken. She just said what she thought and she said it with style. She didn’t let Hart run all over her but she was very real with herself about her feelings. I like how the 2nd half of the story played out. It was perfect for them. I have pretty much plowed through the first 4 books in this series in a matter of weeks. They are that good! They are a must read for any historical romance reader that can handle a bit of a darker angle in their romance. These are not light reads but they are very well done. I am very curious about where the series goes from here now that the brothers are done. I am excited to see!

Broken record alert: Angela rocks! She does a fantastic job with this series. I highly recommend listening to them.
Final Thoughts: There is no mistaking the troubles and issues the Mackenzie Men and their ladies had to fight through for the HEA. I am really excited to see how the rest of the family fairs now that the brothers stories are complete.
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
