Short quick read. Riley is working on a dig when Maggie shows up. They have some fun together and also come under attack at the dig site. The ending was funny but the read of course was too short so it left you wanting more.

Novella #9 : MacKenzie Family Series

My Rating: 4/5 stars
My Review:

Riley, likely my favorite of the MacKenzie brothers is back in action in this hot follow-up to his original novella which paired him with his now-wife, Maggie. After three years of marriage and partnership, Maggie and Riley are looking to expand their family but to date, they have had no luck despite a lot of practice. Riley and Maggie have never had a problem with the practice but

MacKenzie brothers were the first stories I read from Liliana Hart, they are fun, attractive, charismatic, and hot. Family is the main focus for them, so I can only imagine the heartbreak for Riley and Maggie, that they hadn't had a child yet.
Maggie makes a surprise trip to Egypt, while Riley is working there, and instead of trying to get pregnant, they reunite in an intimate and loving way. And it is as explosive as always. The heat level is high, the sheets are burning, the air sizzling.
But no

Favorite Quotes
“Sweetheart, I’d give up everything to be anywhere with you.” -Riley

“. . . I’ve come to realize that you’re the most important thing in my life. You’re my focus. The reason I want a child is because it would be an extension of who we are together. But if it’s not meant to be, then it’s not meant to be.

Short but amazing.

I'm giving it 4 stars because it was a short novella, but it was packed with adventure and enough spice to make you fan yourself. The Mackenzies are a great set of books about family and romance and this novellas are the perfect follow up books for the characters. We visit with Riley and Maggie three years after they met and discover they can't get pregnant. While Riley is away for work Maggie devices a plan to go after her husband and fix the tension that has plague them for t

If you are a fan of the MacKenzies (or Indiana Jones) you're sure to love this book! We revisit Riley MacKenzie and his wife Maggie and accompany them on another archaeological adventure with the expected romance and intrigue. As you would expect, the romance is MacKenzie hot. As this is a novella, the adventure and intrigue are short lived. It has however been lovely to catch up once again with the family MacKenzie.

Riley have been trying for a year to have a baby but no luck. Maggie is heartbroken and disappointed. Riley is tortured with seeing his wife's eyes fill sadness.
During one of his projects in Egypt, Maggie surprises with him by joining and helping him. Their vacation together turns dangerous, thrilling and exciting.

Fireworks:Riley was hot, exciting and sexy. Look forward to many more MacKenzie books.

Fireworks is right!

I loved this book. Riley & Maggie are such a great and fun couple. I remember the first time I read Riley's story, I really wondered how an archeologist could be an alpha male like his brothers. I must say, Liliana Hart knows exactly how to do that and did! This book keeps you on your toes, you never know who you can trust. I absolutely love all of Ms. Hart's MacKenzie series and always look forward to what she has in store next!

Ancient hep for an ancient desire. Steamy indeed and only for a mature audience. Riley and Maggie are so obviously in love. Not that the other brothers and their wives aren't, it's just more honest and basic and raw. They are adventurers at heart and that influences everything they do and how they do it.
Danger and passion are the backbones of this novella and it makes for a great read. Definitely a good follow up for their beginning.

I always did love Riley and Maggie. And this book really concreted it. I love their love for one another and the adventures they get to go on. I feel bad as to what happened on the site with Walker, but in the end justice is served. My favorite part was the end when Riley was definitely being a MacKenzie and wrestling a poor horse, or maybe Thomas, while poor Maggie was cursing his name. Glad that they got the little family that they wanted.

This is a continuation of Riley and Maggie's story. I suggest you read Riley's story before reading this book. After 3 years the couple is still very much in love. Riley is on a archeological dig in Cairo and missing his wife when she shows up out of the blue. Riley has the feeling that it could be dangerous to him and his help after they are done with their job. Lilian Hart continues to do a great job on the MacKenzie series books.

Two adventurers one great story

This is a happy reconnection between both Riley and Maggie. This book has them renewing their feelings that never went away, just got lost for a bit.

It is also an adventure of one of the archeology kind. I really love this series! What can I say!! But read it, it is steamy, sexy, funny with a tad of trouble in each one.
A really enjoyable short story, wish it had been longer but that is only because I love the MacKenzie family so much, and always want more!
The story is full of heat, and a little mystery and everything you would expect from a MacKenzie family story. Anyone who is a fan of this series is sure to love this too :-)

I was a little lost starting's been a long time since I read the Riley's first book. I really like the whole Egyptian plot (as I'm a HUGE fan of anything Egyptian), and this one had a little suspense to go with the steam.
Overall it was a great addition to Riley and Maggie's story...also an altogether great addition to the MacKenzie series.

Another great story by Liliana Hart

Whether it's a full length novel or a short novella Liliana Hart always delivers on characters you love to root for and a story line that you never want to end. Release dates always make it in my calendar for the MacKenzie family.

Another excellent story

I just love the MacKenzie Family. I can't wait for the next book. Liliana Hart is the best author when it comes to Alpha men and their equally strong women.

I did not know if I would like this book as I usually do not like add-on story lines
surprisingly I really liked this extension of Riley's story as it was easy to fall back into the series.
I would definitively recommend this to friends.

Liliana Hart spent five years teaching music in the public education system. She molded America’s youth, busted kids for smoking pot in the restrooms, and broke up illicit affairs behind the stage on a regular basis. (Liliana’s Addison Holmes Mystery Series, about a small town teacher who gets into a whole lot of trouble, is somewhat autobiographical, but she won’t confess to which parts).
