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?

Would it even be proper of me to say that Robin Covington does way much more than that many of the other actual Mackenzie novels have failed to do: capture my attention with a kind of breezy, complex writing that the originals couldn’t?

‘Rush’ is brief but intriguing enough, a straight telling of a mission to rescue a senator’s daughter that proves to be the second-chance for a battle-hardened mercenary and a rich thief or sorts and a do-over that both so badly need. Atticus Rush and Olivia Rutledge-Cairn are standouts in their own right, and as I relished seeing Rush finally get on his knees, this odd couple somehow did it for me, despite their apparent incompatibility.
