From Liliana Hart's New York Times bestselling MacKenzie family comes a new story by USA Today bestselling author Robin Covington...
Atticus Rush doesn't really like people. Years in Special Ops and law enforcement showed him the worst of humanity, making his mountain hideaway the ideal place to live. But when his colleagues at MacKenzie Security need him to save the kidnapped young daughter of a U.S. Senator, he'll do it, even if it means working with the woman who broke his heart …his ex-wife.
Lady Olivia Rutledge-Cairn likes to steal things. Raised with a silver spoon and the glass slipper she spent years cultivating a cadre of acquaintances in the highest places. She parlayed her natural gift for theft into a career of locating and illegally retrieving hard-to-find items of value for the ridiculously wealthy. Rush was the one man who tempted her to change her ways…until he caught her and threatened to turn her in.
MacKenzie Security has vowed to save the girl. Olivia can find anything or anyone. Rush can get anyone out. As the clock winds down on the girl's life, can they fight the past, a ruthless madman and their explosive passion to get the job done?

RUSH is a terrific second chance romance with a couple whose differences were too big to overcome during their marriage, but who have another shot at reigniting their relationship when they team up to find a kidnapped teenager.
Former SEAL and current mercenary for hire Atticus Rush is horrified to learn that the young daughter of a senator has been kidnapped, and that said senator is specifically asking MacKenzie Security for help finding her. Well, extracting her. It's his ex-wife and the world's most infamous thief, Lady Olivia Rutledge-Cairn, who's the only one with a chance in hell of locating her. Terrified of his Livvy being hurt, his threat to turn her in led to the end of their marriage, but it's clear once they meet again that time hasn't changed their love for one another.
But the issues that broke them apart then are still present. Nothing has changed, even though the heat between them is as potent as ever. Will they be able to overlook their former marital frustrations and embrace the love that's never waned?
RUSH is a novella in The MacKenzie Family series, loosely based on that same series by Liliana Hart but which features a series of novellas written by a variety of authors. I liked Atticus right away, he was gruff and Alpha and a protector of women and children, even if some of his methods and contacts as a mercenary were not necessarily legal. And Olivia, well her methods were DEFINITELY not legal, but the two of them just worked together. The darkness in them both was soothed when they were together, making their relationship as vital as air. Their chemistry just exploded when they were together, and the sex scenes were spectacular. I'd have loved to read more about their swinging club experiences, in fact those sexcapades could probably be its own book!
Bottom Line: This is one time the editing errors didn't detract from my enjoyment of this read. I can't wait for the next installment in The MacKenzie Family spinoff series.
