Overview

Revisit the Mackenzies in this heartwarming Christmas tale. Book 4.5 of the New York Times bestselling Mackenzies / Highland Pleasures Series.

The Mackenzies gather for a clan Christmas and Hogmanay in Scotland. In the chaos of preparations for the celebration--the first of Hart and Eleanor's married life--one of Ian's Ming bowls gets broken, and the family scrambles to save the day. Daniel busily runs a betting ring for everything from the hour Eleanor's baby will arrive, to whether Mac's former-pugilist valet can win a boxing match, to who will be the first of the many guests to be caught under the mistletoe. Ian begins a new obsession, and Beth fears that the loss of one of his precious bowls has made him withdraw once more into his private world.

The Mackenzie Family Christmas is a terrific novella just in time for Christmas. The story focuses around the Mackenzie family waiting for Eleanor and Hart's first baby to be born and finding the perfect gifts for each other, with the entire family pitching in to help find a replacement Ming bowl for Ian when his is broken leaving his wife, Beth, heartbroken. If you've read the first four of the Highland Pleasures series, then the Mackenzie Family Christmas is a must read. We get to catch up with the wild Mackenzie men (especially my personal favorite, Lord Ian) and their captivating brides, babies and extended families from the first four books. I wouldn't recommend reading it as a stand-alone as it contains a lot of spoilers. But if you're looking for a new historical romance series, then start Highland Pleasures. The Mackenzie men are strong, hot, and determined in their pursuits. The ladies aren't shrinking violets and content to let the men call all the shots...they hold their own against the fierce Mackenzies. The series is full of humor, action, and hot romance. The Seduction of Elliot McBride, Book 5, comes out December 31, 2012.

A lovely addition to a great series. You need to have read the previous books to fully appreciate this. This series is one of the best of theromance genre. This specific story catches us up on everyone and is quite exciting and sensual. If only all of us could have our own Mackenzie. Undoubtedly the hottest and sweetest heroes ever created.

There are lots of characters to keep up with. This book mainly introduces you to the whole family with each couple having their own book. I guess if you have read the other boks already this one allows you to follow up with them. I would consider the other books based on this one

Wonderful story especially for the holidays. Can't wait til end of month for Elliots story, although he is a McBride, Ainsley brother, you just know that the Mackenzies will be involved. I recommend this book, and the entire Mackenzie series. Jennifer does it again. Enjoy and happy holidays.

I loved all four previous Mackenzie books and was so happy to find this Christmas story. It was wonderful! I read it in less than a day. All the Mackenzie family is featured along with extended family and friends. Now I'm primed for the next book, THE SEDUCTION OF ELLIOT MCBRIDE, due out at the end of this month.

This was a good read..helps fill in some areas we may have wondered about when reading the series. It was actually much more than I expected for a .99 read. I look forward to the next books in the series.
