The Wicked Deeds of Daniel Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley
Narrator: Angela Dawe
Length: 13 hrs and 52 mins

Date Read: October 2014

Genre: Historical, Romance

Second Sight And Seduction…

Daniel Mackenzie lives up to the reputation of the scandalous Mackenzie family—he has wealth, looks, and talent, and women love him. When he meets Violet Bastien—one of the most famous spiritual mediums in England—he immediately knows two things: that Miss Bastien is a fraud, and that he’s wildly attracted to her.

Violet knows she can’t really contact the other side, but she’s excellent at reading people. She discerns quickly that Daniel is intelligent and dangerous to her reputation, but she also finds him generous, handsome, and outrageously wicked. But spectres from Violet’s past threaten to destroy her, and she flees England, adopting yet another identity.

Daniel is determined to find the elusive Violet and pursue the passion he feels for her. And though Violet knows that her scandalous past will keep her from proper marriage, her attraction to Daniel is irresistible. It’s not until Daniel is the only one she can turn to that he proves he believes in something more than cold facts. He believes in love.

JUST A NOTE: Read It File It is for books that I have read that I need to keep track of. The reviews will be super short (think tweet longer length) but will serve the purpose of getting the books into UBB for tracking purposes 🙂

Read It File It (short review): The Wicked Deeds of Daniel Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley has one of my favorite romance troupes: Man falls in love with woman because she creates things (mathematical or engineering)that impress him. This is especially true in Historicals where women were mostly trained to not show their smarts. I fell in love with Daniel awhile ago and loved seeing the “nosey” Mackenzie women. I do believe that Violet will fit right in 🙂

A few more thoughts but they are spoiler in nature:

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: Angela Dawe /Length: 13 hrs and 52 mins

I am an Angela Dawe fangirl (I think y’all know that by now)! She totally nailed Violet and Daniel. Even though I read most of this book (I was out and about without my audiobooks), I made sure to listen to a couple of hours! I wish I could have spent the whole time with the audiobook!

  1. I loved this Audiobook Felicia! And Damn! Every time I come here and read a review for one of old fav. I feel this terrible need to do re-listen…LOL Then again WHY NOT?…LOl I just have to wait until the day after finish Burn for Me 🙂

  2. Ahh, yes. It’s difficult not to love Daniel, especially since you basically see him grow up throughout the series. Re: your spoiler-ish comment (without being spoilery)… I’ve read other books that have it, and it all depends on the reasons. Jennifer Ashley totally pulls it off.

    • She did totally pull it off! I don’t mind the troupe unless it makes the person unlikable and in this case it did not 🙂 I had feels in this book especially around V, her mom, and the “thing”! Also I want an air balloon with a kilted man.

    • This is the one that had the lowest rating for me but I still really enjoyed it. I think I am just hooked on her unique characters. They get me every time 🙂

  3. I haven’t read much of the first trope and that sounds interesting. The second spoiler trope doesn’t bother me. I like that sort of thing 🙂
