New York Times bestselling author Lynn Raye Harris adds her unique twist to Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie family with HOT WITNESS... 

The MacKenzies partner with the Hostile Operations Team to protect a woman who witnessed a crime from a notorious mobster.

Eva Gray has a secret. Eight years ago, her sister entered the Brothers of Sin Motorcycle Club and never came back. Seven years ago, she vowed revenge, even if she had to change everything about her life to do it—her look, her name, her face.

Now she’s stalking the Brothers and looking for weakness. She’s close to achieving her goal, so close she can taste it. But a prominent federal judge is now in ICU, and Eva’s the only one who can prove the club hired the hit.

Jake Ryan was once a Brother, but he got his life together when a judge gave him a choice: prison or the military. He took the military and he’s never looked back. Now, as a member of the lethal Hostile Operations Team, he’s accustomed to working on the side of justice.

So when Declan MacKenzie comes to Washington DC and asks him to infiltrate his old gang to protect a witness and get evidence, he doesn’t hesitate to do his duty. But little does he suspect that Eva Gray is a girl he once knew or that she’s on a mission of her own. A mission that could see them both dead before they’re through.

When the warrior meets the vengeful virgin, nothing and no one is safe…

Liza’s Review:

I absolutely adore the Hostile Operations Team from Lynn Raye Harris. While I've not read any of the MacKenzie family books from Liliana Hart, I feel like I need to start the series after meeting some of the characters in HOT Witness.

Jake Ryan was the perfect choice based on his past with the Brothers of Sin to go in as a member again to protect witness Eva Gray. I loved that even though Jake didn't know exactly why Eva looked so familiar to him, he inherently recognized something about her. I absolutely loved their instant connection and loved the journey Jake and Eva took. 

While the chemistry was off the charts hot between Jake and Eva, I found a bit of sweetness to their relationship as well. I loved how each and every member of the HOT team is so protective of the women in their lives pretty much from the moment they find them. Jake was no exception with Eva; in fact he might have even been more protective than any of the others based upon their situation.

HOT Witness had all of the suspense, heat and romance fans of the Hostile Operations Team fans have come to know and love. I have to say after getting this taste of the MacKenzie family stories, I now plan to add those books to my to be read list.

Rating: 4 Stars (B+)
