As everyone knows, I am such a Highlander Hussy! The maidens at Under the Covers book blog and I decided to share our love of all things kilted with you. What better way to do this, than to bring in the Mackenzie Men from the Jennifer Ashley series Highland Pleasures. Wow, what a great series name, am I right?
Today, Suzanne and I battle out our love of 2 of these Mackenzie men. Suzanne says Ian from The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie is the best. Over here at Demon Lover’s, we disagree. We think Hart from her newest book The Duke’s Perfect Wife (due out April 3) is the sexiest, the studliest, the best looking in a kilt…
So, for your reading pleasure, we’re going to allow you all to agree or disagree with us! And the best part? You are commenting for a chance to win either Hart’s book, or Ian’s book. (Courtesy of the lovely Jennifer Ashley–who will provide the winner an ebook if you are international)
Highland Hussy: No way is Ian the best, I am all about Hart. This man knows how to play naughty in the bedroom but keep it nice during the day. Known for his sexual appetites, Hart’s reputation is well-deserved. That man could blindfold me and tie me up any day! His recent years of celibacy would be at an end, if I’d met him before Eleanor. But alas, she was his former fiancée, and true love. I know where his heart lies.
He looks best in a kilt, hellooo sexy man calves, and he is definitely the best looking Mackenzie brother. He may be eldest, but those fine lines merely add distinction to his handsome and rugged good looks.
Hart’s main goal may be to become Prime Minister, but learning to love Eleanor is beautiful to watch. Hart not only has to learn to love, he learns how to accept love. When Hart sees that his end game has changed, and that maybe he’s okay with that, he realizes that love is more important-It’s so much more fulfilling to love and be loved. And when you read about Hart, you’ll fall for him, just as I have.
And the Lovely Suzanne has to say:
Pfft, Hart may have learnt the importance of love, but he still doesn’t compare to Ian. Beth brings out the best in him, a man who finds it impossible to express emotion finally finds his way. And when he is with his son *dreamy sigh* who could not love a gorgeous man with a cute little boy he clearly adores? It is like seeing a hotty cuddling a puppy; impossible to resist!
I think I will end this with a quote from Ian to demonstrate my point:
“Have I told you today that I love you?” he asked.
“A few dozen times. Not that I mind.” As a young woman who’d been starved for love much of her life, Beth lapped up Ian’s generous outpouring of the words. He’d surprise her with them, catching her as she walked down the hall, pushing her up against a wall, breathing, “I love you.” Or he’d tickle her awake and tell her while she tried to hit him with a pillow. The best was when he lay against her in the dark, fingers tracing her body. She treasured his whispered, “I love you.”
p.s. Ian also looks best in a kilt!
