A Letter from Liliana Hart:
I’m thrilled to announce the MacKenzie Family World is returning! I asked four of my favorite authors to create their own characters and put them into the world you all know and love. These amazing authors revisited Surrender, Montana, and through their imagination you’ll get to meet new characters, while reuniting with some of your favorites.
These stories are hot, hot, hot and packed with action and adventure—exactly what you’d expect from a MacKenzie story. It was pure pleasure for me to read each and every one of them and see my world through someone else’s eyes. They definitely did the series justice, and I hope you discover four new authors to put on your auto-buy list.
Make sure you check out Spies and Stilettos, a brand new, full-length MacKenzie novel written by me. This will be the final installment of the MacKenzie series, featuring Brady Scott and Elena Nayal. After eighteen books of my own and nine books written by other bestselling authors in the MacKenzie World, it’s going to be difficult to say goodbye to a family I know as well as my own. Thank you for falling in love with the MacKenzies.
So grab a glass of wine, pour a bubble bath, and prepare to Surrender.

Gennita Low’s WICKED HOT (A MacKenzie Family Novella)

A US operative/businessman had been kidnapped in Indonesia. He has a vital piece of information that would get the US government in trouble. But Indonesia is a country with with over 17000 islands, with plenty of jungles in which to hide.
Off-the book NSA fixer, Kirk Ryan, approaches his cousin, Archer, who works at the MacKenzie Securities for help with tracing a phone call. He also needs a translator familiar with Indonesian. Not a problem. MacKenzie Securities’ troubleshooter, Jade, has plenty of connections. In fact, there is a translator she knows who is in Indonesia right now.
Surya, GEM contract agent, really doesn’t want to do anything but lie on the heated beaches of Indonesia and just enjoy her first holiday in years. But she owes Jade Jax a favor and her friend’s calling it in. And the favor comes in a six-foot-two package of irresistible and wicked male. It’s just a translation job. She would help and maybe get to know the man for a day or two. What could go wrong?
He stood up. “Do I have to lock you out of my room so you won’t steal any more of my stuff?” he asked, looking down at her.
She sniffed. “A girl borrows something and gets this horrible reputation.” She stretched. “This bed is more comfy than mine.”
Oh, she was good. Always trying to distract him. “Nope, not falling for that again,” he said, and went to his dropped luggage.
“What are you doing?” she asked, propping her head up, watching him with narrowed eyes.
“Taking my stuff with me to the bathroom,” he told her. “I believe you got us some food. Why don’t I meet you there, across the other end of the table, just to be safe?”
“Ha ha, very funny. I’m going to short sheet your bed.”
He closed the bathroom door. Only then would he allow a small smile. Minx. Her mischievous streak was going to make his orderly life hell. Again.
He’d been out of sorts since she’d disappeared, feeling adrift when he stopped working. He’d chalked it up to some kind of strange infatuation with a mysterious woman that he’d forget about soon enough. So he’d kept busy. And with recent news and the funeral this week, life had been more serious than usual.
Surya’s sudden reappearance brought back a splash of color. This. He’d missed her vibrancy. It seemed to hold him by the neck and demand his attention. He wanted to explore why she affected him this way, why he was feeling so much lighter since walking into the suite, why knowing she was nearby made his heart clench.
He exhaled, shaking away the thoughts, then gave a low whistle at the sight of his surroundings. He was sure the bathroom was bigger than his small bedroom at home. The sink and counter stretched a mile long. The tub was a matching grey marble, tinted with gold. The shower area next to it could fit three or four people.
He looked at it longingly. Perhaps later tonight. Surya was sniffing at him like he’d been on a stuffy plane for over half a day. Which he had. He reached down and unzipped the side pocket of his carry-on, pulling out his bag of amenities. A cowboy wash and shave and a change of clothes would have to do for now. He needed to get his mind back on course to talk to Surya. He was sure she was an experienced translator between hostile negotiating parties, but he also needed to gauge her experience in locating and extracting prisoners. How good was she with weapons?
He looked around again. Could she hike in a jungle? In those hot pink panties? No fucking way.
His body reacted to the image of Surya in those panties out in the Asian jungle.
Mental groan. One ice-cold cowboy bath ahead.
