MACKENZIE'S PLEASURE - Linda Howard
HER HERO
Barrie Lovejoy needed a savior. The terrorist group holding her hostage surely wouldn't tolerate her silence much longer. Instead they would silence HER -- forever. Then out of the darkness HE arrived. Grizzled and dangerous, he led Barrie from her captors straight into his sheltering arms...
HER HUSBAND
Navy S.E.A.L. Zane Mackenzie was the best. No mission had ever gotten the better of him -- until now. Saving Barrie Lovejoy had been textbook -- except for their desperate night of passion. And though his job as a soldier had ended with her freedom, his duties as a husband had only just begun. For he would sooner die than let the enemy harm the mother of his child.

This was the first book of Linda Howard or Beverly Barton that I have read -- well it sent me flying to my usual book store looking for any thing else they have written --- Linda Howard's Mackenzie's Pleasure Zane & Barrie's story -- was so moving, and enjoyable, I never put it down once I started, I have since read Mackenzie's Mission Joe's & caroline Evans' story and am now searching for the stories on Michael, Joshua & Maris, I have just put Chance's story in my cart (...) great reading --- romance like this is truely a pleasure.

KEEP IT - KEEP IT - KEEP IT --- WOW! Sept. 19 2003
By M. Hartmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Zane Mackenzie is everything you want to see in a Navy SEAL -
Dang! but he is hot!
Finally we get a young woman that is worthy of the hero.
Barrie Lovejoy takes the only out to driving away the emotional and physical trauma she was subjected to in her kidnapping.
Zane Mackenzie, in the tradition of his father and brothers is man enough and sensitive enough to deal with Barrie.
When Zane is wounded in portecting Barrie, she becomes distaught at being forced to leave Zane behind without knowing if he would live.
I loved finding about Wolf and his family, especially Michael and Josh [why don't they have stories of their own?] Poor Joe, 5 sons and no daughter. It took Barrie and Zane to pull a fast one.
There is just something about these Mackenzie men that puts your hormones on red alert. We need more of these guys and more women like Barrie.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED -- definitely all are keepers - what a collection of men.

Do whatever you have to to get a copy of this book! May 6 2001
By mirope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Serial romances don't get any better than this! I loved everything about this book. The characters are great. Zane is the epitome of the strong, sexy, dangerous hero and Barrie is a perfect match for him. She's brave and smart - not one of those annoying heroines who has to be rescued after ignoring perfectly logical warnings not to do the very thing that got her in trouble. Linda Howard has concocted a fun, fast-paced plot that creates plenty of its own dramatic moments. The love scenes are incredibly steamy without being excessively graphic. I hope there are many more MacKenzie stories to come!

I now understand why Linda Howard is rated so highly... Jan. 22 2006
By bookjunkiereviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having read SARAH'S CHILD, I was not too impressed. Having read DUNCAN'S BRIDE worked much better, but while it was a good read, it was not an outstanding read. Several review sites recommended MACKENZIE'S MOUNTAIN, but I never bothered to find a copy. In December 2005, I stumbled across this book (MACKENZIE'S PLEASURE), which is the story of Zane Mackenzie, the youngest son of Wolf Mackenzie and his wife Mary Elizabeth (hero and heroine of Mackenzie's Mountain). I have mixed feelings about SEAL-themed books - while I have loved Brockmann's series, I somehow prefer reading about firemen to reading about SEALS. Give this book a chance, if you share my hesitations.

Zane Mackenzie is called upon to execute a mission to rescue an ambassador's kidnapped daughter Barrie Lovejoy out of Libya. The first third of the book is about how the rescue takes place and with what consequences. In the second third, Zane and Barrie are separated by circumstances until they manage to find each other. Since there is a mystery and a bit of romantic suspense to the plot, I will not go further with the plot summary. It is probably sufficient to say that Barrie's kidnapping and rescue is somewhat more complicated than either Zane or Barrie realized.

The book begins with Wolf Mackenzie worrying about his children, from Joe down to his adopted son Chance and his youngest son Zane. Thus, Linda Howard provides the new reader with sufficient background to Zane, to understand what kind of family he comes from and what kind of person he is likely to be. The book then moves to a botched Naval exercise which leaves Zane short of two men. It is at this point that he is asked to rescue the Ambassador's daughter. Barrie Lovejoy is no spoiled socialite, although she has been protected by her father all her life (for understandable reasons). Her courage and endurance, as well as her unusual (but understandable) decisions, appeal to Zane. Barrie is poised, emotionally mature, and able to make decisions quickly. Zane has been dedicated to his job, but frustrated by the promotions that take him away from active duty. When Zane and Barrie end up spending an intense night and day together while hiding out, they form a bond even though they know virtually nothing about each other.

The book moves from the US to the Mediterranean back to the US. Despite these changes of locale (sketched in deftly for the most part), we remain focused tightly on the hero and heroine. MACKENZIE'S PLEASURE is one of the few stories where I genuinely liked the hero and heroine from the outset, and where I also felt that they were right for each other. That this contributed to my liking the book is not in question. Linda Howard's writing style also helped, as did her characterizations. Zane is an alpha male but not an overbearing alpha, but a protector and leader. The other SEALS came alive as did the heroine and her Ambassador father. What didn't work so well for me was the villain and his motivation (especially as explained to Barrie at the end).

Mackenzie men!! Sept. 12 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I could not put this book down. Zane has got to be my favorite. I can't wait to read on Chance's turn on marriage. I can't ever get tired about reading these Mackenzie men. I would just like to read the stories on the other brothers. A must have for everyone.
