He is a man of simple tastes-ad complex pleasures. Cameron Mackenzie is a man who loves only horses and women-in that order-or so his mistresses say.
Anisley Douglas is a woman with a strong sense of justice and the desire to help others-even if that means sneaking around a rakish man's bedroom.
Which is exactly where Cam finds her-six years after he caught her the first time. Only then, she convinced Cam she was seeking a liaison, but couldn't go through with it because of husband. Now a widow, she is on a mission to retrieve letters that could prove embarrassing to the queen. Cam has no interest in Ainsley's subterfuge but he vows to finish what they started those many years ago. One game, one kiss at a time, he plans to seduce her. And what starts out as a lusty diversion may break Cam's own rules and heal the scars of a dark and damaging past.
This is another book I picked up and read in a day. As pretty much I do with all of Ms Ashley's books no mater what name she is writing under. The chemistry between Cam and Ainsley is wonderful.
Six years ago when Cam caught her in his bedroom she wouldn't so anything with him because she did not want to hurt her husband. A man who helped her out of a bad choice that she had made. Now it is six years later and she is caught right back in the same spot with Cam. Ainsley really wants to be bad with Cam but all she has left is her reputation and she is one of the queens ladies in waiting. She was only caught in room because she was trying to retrieve a letter back that someone stole from the queen.
I liked the fact that she made Cam kind of work for her, she didn't just jump in to bed with him. She really thought about what she was doing, should she take a chance at this or not. Let's just say I'm glad she took the chance.
Cam is a wonderful hero, he has not had a easy time with it and his first wife was a real nut. He had a lot to overcome to find love with Ainsley. When Ainsley has to leave to go to the queen Cam just can't understand why she would leave him to go to the her. I loved it when he finally realizes that not all women are like his first wife. I also loved that we had Daniel trying to play matchmaker.
We also have Ian coming in the picture and giving his words of wisdom, I really love it when he does that. Mater of fact I just reread Ian's book. Forgot how wonderful that book was.
All I can say is this was a wonderful book, Ms Ashley does not disappoint, and I can't wait for Hart's book. I said this before and will say it again any book that Ms Ashley writes are wonderful no mater what pen name she uses.
