Publisher's Summary

No mission had ever gotten the better of Navy SEAL Zane Mackenzie...until now. Barrie Lovejoy needed a savior, before the terrorist group holding her hostage lost patience and silenced her forever. Rescuing Barrie would be the most important mission of his life. For he would sooner die than let the enemy harm the mother of his child.
©1996 Linda Howard (P)2006 Audible, Inc.

Kathy

I don't really ask a lot of these kind of books. I happily suspend reason, logic and a room temperature IQ, joyfully accepting every hair-brained story-line the author cranks out just to listen to the sexy bits.

I admit that I can believe that the Lady looks like a supermodel, has 4 PhDs and is a 29 year old virgin. I can believe that the Hero is a larger than life hunk who has saved the world from terrorists, is a natural warrior who is on a first name basis with many world leaders, who just wants to settle down and have babies and with the right girl.

I will cheerfully ignore that the main characters have been wading neck deep in sewage for days, haven't bathed or brushed their teeth in weeks, met each other five minutes before plunging into deep doo doo, and are still so hot for each other they not only accomplish the main sex act but also other selected sexy asides.

Yep, I confess. Even when the sexy bits are humanly impossible and all too predictable, I still like to listen to them every now and then

However, I do get MORE than a little irritated when the narrator is all wrong for the read. If the Hero is a big, macho man, alpha male with superhuman strength and stamina the voice should reflect that. It should not sound like a guy who has never lifted anything heavier than a chess piece NOR done anything more dangerous than that. And the voice should not sound like a woman in the 2nd stage of labor --- a growling female narrator is not a good substituted for a deep male voice (as in McKenzie's Mountain! Geez Louize! What were they thinking?)

The short version: if you're gonna talk dirty, do it like ya mean it or just go some place else and make some animalistic sounds deep in the throat. <S>

loved this book

Mackenzie's Pleasure was a great book I liked Mackenzie's mountain but this was different much more on the edge of your seat , a good suspense and love story that kept me coming back for more, I liked the high paced speed and a good amount of romance,
If you liked Mackenzie's mountain than you will love this one I hope that Audible gets all five books from the series because I cant get enough of this series and I hope that you love it to
Have a great read

love every minute

this is one of my favorite books, I've listened to this book so many times I have lost count. It is a great story. I only wish the author would do the story of Chance on tape.

Excellent

The story is suspenseful, erotic, and unexpected. Great mix in a story. The production is also very well done. Lots of twists and turns to keep things interesting.
Enjoy!

Mackenzie's Pleasure

After the 100's of books I've read, Zane has to be my favorite hero. He's everything we look for in a hero. Barrie is one lucky girl. Being able to listen to this book is a big plus. Always on my ipod and listen to it often. Love this book.

The MacKenzies's

Linda Howard brings her characters to life. As I listen to the book, I can picture what is happening. Her books keep me at the edge of my seat and I hope she writes more about the MacKenzie's. After all, seems to be a very large family.

Thank you Linda.

🤷🏻‍♀️ not really sure what to say here

I’ve read this story more than once myself, but this is the first time I’ve listened to it. I had a hard time deciding on how many stars to give the narration. His voice wasn’t unpleasant, but he basically just read the book. I couldn’t tell any difference between the various characters’ voices. There was no obvious emotion when emotion was strongly expected by the wording in the story. I guess I’m used to listening to voice actors in my audiobooks. This won’t go on my re-listen list.

Complaint is format

Mackenzie's Pleasure is a "classic" Linda Howard written in the early 90's. My ONLY complaint is that this audio book is in one big 7 hour chunk. In other words, it's on one big track ... if i fall asleep or miss something, there is no way to go back a few seconds, because it only "rewinds" to the start of the 7 hours. Part of that is the design of my Dell DJ, but most audio books are broken into separate chapters, so if 4 hours in, you've lost track of what's going on, you only have to re-listen to a chapter or so. Not this one. This is just annoying!
