During the month of February, I read four full-length books, a novella, and two short stories. All but two of them received four stars and above from me, but there was one romance that stood out above all the others. It’s the third book in a relatively new favorite series of mine that I’ve featured before. In this one, we have Cameron, the second-oldest Mackenzie brother. Just like his siblings, Cam is a tortured hero. Years ago, his wife went mad and attempted to kill their infant son, Daniel. When he tried to stop her, she slashed his face with a knife and then took her own life. Since they were alone in the room together, rumors have abounded ever since that he killed her. Cam has been living a colorless life ever since, with one of his few pleasures being the training of horses, something he’s extremely good at. One night, while in attendance at his brother’s house party, he discovers Ainsley hiding in his bedroom. She’d been there searching for a letter that another woman is using to blackmail the queen, and as one of the queen’s trusted ladies-in-waiting, Ainsley was tasked with recovering it. Cam recalls another occasion six years earlier, when he found Ainsley in his room and very nearly had his way with her until she backed out of their passionate encounter. He’s never really stopped thinking of her since, so he offers to help her recover the missives. As they work together, passion flares between them again, but after his disastrous marriage, he thinks that all he can offer Ainsley is a position as his mistress. Ainsley is sorely tempted by his offer, and eventually accepts, only to find Cam offering marriage after all to protect her from scandal. But even though they share a sensual fire, Ainsley will have her work cut out for her, convincing Cam to fully trust her with his heart.
Cam is a classic tortured hero who is very sympathetic, especially after the full extent of what his first wife put him through is revealed. He’s gained a reputation as a lover who is free with his favors, but he never wanted to marry again until Ainsley came along. I love how he describes being with her as bringing color back into his life. And like with his two younger brothers, I’m so glad that he found the perfect person to help him heal from his abusive past. Ainsley is the perfect mixture between sweet and spirited. She has an adventurous side that’s always up for a little intrigue. She also has a very passionate side, embracing her own femininity and sexuality, and giving full measure to Cam once they become lovers. At the same time, she’s kind and compassionate about Cam’s past with his first wife, angry on his behalf when she learns the truth and determined to help him overcome it, so that he can live a fuller life with her than he’s been living. Cam and Ainsley fit together perfectly. Their love scenes are steamy, pouring out all the passion and emotion they feel for one another. I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely and emotional story and I couldn’t have asked for a better read. That’s why I’m naming Jennifer Ashley’s The Many Sins of Lord Cameron as my February Book of the Month. If you enjoy a strong, passionate, but vulnerable hero with a troubled past paired with an adventurous heroine who wants to help him heal, in an emotional and steamy story, then you should definitely give this book a try.

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