It's hard enough to deal with it now; what would it have been like in Victorian Britain, when psychology and psychiatry were just beginning to be explored? (psychology was referred to as a branch of philosophy). I did much research into Asperger's Syndrome, which I assure you was heartbreaking.

How did I come up with Ian in particular? He simply walked into my head (whole family did), and was just himself. I had to watch him a long time before I realized he was autistic, and I needed to do some research! I could not get that man out of my head, and I thought--if I can't, perhaps other people won't be able to either. He keeps coming back in other stories. It's all his fault. :-)(less)

The Stolen Mackenzie Bride (out in late September) introduces new characters in the Mackenzie family--Malcolm, Alec, and Will Mackenzie. Malcolm's story is in Stolen Mackenzie Bride, and I am planning Alec's and Will's books. Also there are side characters who have popped up through the series; e.g., Angelo, Cameron's Romany sidekick, and David Fleming, Hart's best friend. I want to give them stories too. I also have ideas for stories that revolve around Ian and Beth, and some with Fellows as a Scotland Yard detective. I can also fast-forward and see how the Mackenzie kids grow up. I love the Mackenzie family and their world, and plan to visit them as often as I can. (less)

Quotes by Jennifer Ashley  (?)

“I loved and adored you, but I drained you like a thirsty man at a spring. I loved what you could give me - your admiration, your acceptance, your love, your forgiveness. I forgot to love you for yourself.”
Jennifer Ashley, Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage

“We don't fit in, you and me," he said. "We're both oddities no one knows what to do with. But we fit together." He took her hand, pressed her palm to his, then laced their fingers through each other's. "We fit.”
Jennifer Ashley, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie

“Ian closed his eyes. Beth watched emotions flicker across his face, the uncertainty, the stubbornness, the raw pain he’d lived with for so long. He didn’t always know how to express his emotions, but that didn’t mean he didn’t feel them deeply.
When Ian slowly opened his eyes, he guided his gaze directly to Beth’s. His golden eyes shimmered and sparkled, pupils ringed with green. He held her gaze steadily, not blinking, or shifting away.
“I love you,” he said.
Beth caught her breath, and sudden tears blurred her vision.
“Love you,” Ian repeated. His gaze bore into hers harder than Hart’s ever could hope to. “Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you…”
Jennifer Ashley, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie

Jennifer Ashley First--so sorry I'm just seeing this--alerts sometimes show up; sometimes they don't. I don't always have a choice about bundling the books--the publisher has to decide to do it (though I ask them, trust me). In March, two novellas, Lone Wolf, and Feral Heat are coming out bundled together in the print book, Shifter Mates. In September, a print bundle of Scandal and the Duchess and Untamed Mackenzie is releasing in a book called "The Scandalous Mackenzies." In E- I have a boxed set called "Shifters Unbound Boxed set" (original name, LOL), which has Hard Mated, Bodyguard, and Shifter Made. See my website (http://www.jenniferashley.com) for links to all of those (click "Jennifer's books" on the top menu).
