He is a man of simple tastes—and complex pleasures...

Cameron Mackenzie is a man who loves only horses and women—in that order—or so his mistresses say.

Ainsley 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 bedchamber.

Which is exactly where Cam finds her—six years after he caught her the firs

The Many Sins of Lord Cameron is the third book in the Highland Pleasures series and wow… what an amazing story!

Many people have asked me whose story I liked better; Cam’s or Ian’s? The thing about answering a question like this is that it’s like comparing apples and oranges, or in this case, the finest Kentucky Bourbon and hundred year old Scotch! Both are amazing in their own ways and depending on your mood, you’d choose one over the other. But when it’s all said and done, both

Lord Cameron loves to race horses and bed women. Well, actually, he never takes women to bed. That would be too intimate. A wall or a table works just fine. His life was scandalized after the suspisious death of his wife. He now lives the life of a rich widower and horse trainer.

"Cam," she said softly. A tear fell to his wrist.
Cameron's broad fingers tilted her face up. There was fire in his eyes, and anger, and pain. "Let me be, Ainsley. Don't try to remake me in one night. I told you, I'm a wreck of a man."

A man I'm in love with. Ainsley kissed his palm.

This is the third installment in Jennifer Ashley’s Highland Pleasures series, and it is most definitely a fabulous read.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Mackenzie brothers, they are 4 brothers who have rank, wealth and political clout, but they don’t care. Can you imagine? They are peers in Victorian England, and they don’t care. Amazing. Added to that, they are Scottish, and they do as they please. This makes for a wild series.

This is the third installment in Jennifer Ashley's Highland Pleasures series and I Loved It! Wow, these notorious Mackenzie brothers sure know how to wear a kilt:-)

Jennifer Ashley's writing appeals to me and one of the things I love most is her heroines. I like that they are strong, intelligent young women who are not afraid to take chances and live life with gusto. They each have a unique personality along with a sense of humor. Ainsley Douglas is one of my favorites and I liked that she was
An enjoyable read with likeable lead characters. Ms Ashley has an easy and enjoyable writing style. Both MCs were people of integrity, although they each had challenges from their pasts to face. The book showed development and growth in both of them by the end. Cam had a lovely relationship with his son Daniel, too.

I liked the storyline. Cam and Ainsley admitted their attraction and feelings for each other, and although they had some issues to deal with, they got together anyway. I liked that t

This is why I keep reading Jennifer Ashley, despite not enjoying each book I try. I keep hoping to stumble upon a book that'll knock my socks off, like the first one I read by her. I found that with this book and couldn't be happier. I may not like every Ashley book out there, but when I do find one I like, it's not a tame like--I completely fall in love.

I am completely satisfied with this book. I can't think of a single thing I'd like to change--which is pretty surprisi

The Mackenzies, what a delectable and decadent treat! They are like a box of chocolates full of your favourite flavours how the hell are you supposed to pick!? You have the nutty Ian Mackenezie, the silky smooth Mac Mackenzie and now the dark chocolate treat that is Cam Mackenzie, I pick dark chocolate, one, because it is my favourite and two because like dark chocolate Cam is slightly bitter.

For such a "good" girl, Ainsley really was a perfect match for the sinful Cameron. It's been years since I've read this one and my re-introduction to him did not show him in the best light. I had forgotten his past, the scars he wore and the life he'd led. I started The Many Sins of Lord Cameron only seeing his sins. Even at the beginning of the story, I was convinced that my 5-stars previously awarded, was wrong. I was convinced I had made one of those wac

Who can resist a Scotsman in a kilt? Not me! So I'm thrilled that those deliciously sexy Mackenzie brothers are back! THE MANY SINS OF LORD CAMERON, the third book in Jennifer Ashley's popular Highland Pleasures series, tells Cameron Mackenzie's story.

Escaping the boredom of his brother's ball, Lord Cameron Mackenzie takes his latest lover, Phyllida Chase, to his bedchamber in pursuit of more satisfying pleasures. That is until he discovers Ai

Since last year in 2011, I have started reading Jennifer Ashley’s fantastic “Highland Pleasures” series beginning with “The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie” and ever since then, I have fallen in love with this fantastic series! Now, I have currently read the third book in the “Highland Pleasures” series which is called “The Many Sins of Lord Cameron” and it is easily the best story in the series so far! “The Many Sins of Lord Cameron” has loads of

I love this quote and found it so fitting for Lord Cameron and Lady Ainsley. ❤

What a lovely addition to this series. Ian's story is still my favorite but there is so much to love about Cameron. He is one of those heroes that is burly and gruff on the outside but ever so sweet and loving on the inside. How he loved Ainsley without ever uttering the words. **sigh**

And Ainsley was a lot of fun to be around. She was his little devil. :) "How many buttons can you open my lord...."

Third in the series, this one really feels like the series has hit its stride. In my opinion, it’s the best of the 4 brothers. Because Ainsley. Because Cam and Daniel. On its surface, there doesn’t seem to be anything special about this storyline. Rake Hero (a true rake, fyi), spinster widow. Yea, sure, we’ve all read it before. But this one feels different.

First, there’s the Mackenzies, who top my list of compelling familyies of brothers (I don’t really have a list). However dysfunctional, how

If you are looking for a Historical Fiction series to get into, you really need to try the Mackenzie’s and McBrides series. These books are addictive! I think Jennifer Ashley will be my new go-to HF author from now on.

This is Cam and Ainsley’s book.

I didn’t know much about Cam and there was a brief shared moment they had in the previous book. I’ll be honest and say I didn’t care much for Ainsley UNTIL I got to know her then I loved her. I like the Heroines of these series be

Rate: 5 stars

This is the first time I've a series consecutively, one book after the other without reading anything else in between and I have to say this is shaping up to be one of the best historical romance series I've ever read. Boy, have I fallen in love with the Mackenzies (Ian being my favourite of course).

Ainsley half closed her eyes and leaned back against him. “I think all the buttons tonight, don’t you?”
Cameron bit her cheek. His fingers made swift work of the buttons, and he plunged h
After being immensely disappointed with Mac and Isabella's story, I wasn't sure what to expect from The Many Sins of Lord Cameron. It could easily be as epic as Ian's book or as predictable as Isabella's.

After finishing the story, I think it falls somewhere in between the two, meaning it's a great step up from Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage but still not as amazing as The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie was. In fact, nearly everything about Cameron's book falls somewhere in the middle of the

I LOVED this one! Cameron Mackenzie... you naughty boy. Dirty talking, debauching, seducing, Scottish angel of a man. I even loved the heroine in this one, which was a real treat. Honestly I've loved the whole series. Ms. Ashley has a gift of conjuring the sexiest male characters... seriously, pass me a fan ladies!

My first 5-star-rating of the year :D

When I first started this series I didn't think I was going to go far. Even when I was listening to book 2 I thought it would be my last one in the series because I wasn't curious about Cam's story. Everything changed when Ainsley and him ran into each other at Isabella's house and we learn that something happened between them. No way I wasn't going to continue! And I'm so glad I did!

Why 5 stars?

I've made it known I swoon for the damaged heroes and Cameron has joined the list.

Cam was married 15 years ago to an insane, cheating, evil bitch. Seriously mental, like the type you lock in the attic and throw away the key. Only good part was she birthed him a son, Daniel. Since that horrid wife, who's now dead, Cam has been a womanizer. He only has affairs with married women (no single ladies) for 6 months or less and never does it in a bed. And never sleeps with a lady, when he does sleep, h
A good read, but I did put it down several times to read other books in between. I just loved the first book of the series and was very excited for the other brothers because of book 1, but both the 2nd book and this one fell short for me. This is not my favorite time period because not much happens, they go to balls, have soirees in the country, have witty banter. Now the Mackenzie men do add some spice because they are truly messed up and wear kilts, but the plot seemed to stall at times. Hart ...more

Cannot say I loved this one as much as the first two books. Cameron is just too much of a manwhore for me. And Ainsley knows it and gets to witness it. But even with that, given the time period, it made sense and worked overall. Ainsley was not a heroine I titally loved either. So I was just not as invested in this couple as the first two.
Jennifer Ashley just gets better and better! With a smart, intriguing heroine and a sinfully sexy hero, THE MANY SINS OF LORD CAMERON is impossible to put down. I loved it!
Loved it, almost as much as Ian's book. There's nothing like the appeal of a gorgeous, emotionally distant, well hung Highlander in need of some TLC - thank you, Jennifer Ashley for your 'mad' Mackenzies.

This story involves the second oldest Mackenzie brother, Lord Cameron, the scarred rake and father of handsome young Daniel, whom we met in the previous books. Poor, poor Cam - his first wife was a truly horrible and violent psychopath (who most likely suffered sex addiction and severe post-pa

I was a little disappointed in this book to be honest. I had really liked the previous two books in this series and really like Jennifer Ashley's writing style. I also really liked the characters in this book, but found the plot a little unbelievable - like more than usual. I found myself rolling my eyes and just not liking where the book was going about 50% of the time. The other 50% was just okay.

Cameron's backstory with his 1st wife was what really bothered me. I think it was overdone and no
It’s been a few days since I’ve finished this book and I’m still reluctant to write a review because although I enjoyed Lord Cameron and Ainsley, I didn’t like it as much as the first two books in the series.

Don’t get me wrong! Lord Cameron is hot as hell in this book and Ainsley is the absolute perfect match for him, but for some reason, when I flipped the pages on this book, I felt like something was lacking.

Ashley does a great job with the sexual tension between Cam and Ainsley and I loved
