Fast, dangerous, sexy. --Shannon McKenna

You've been hot and bothered, down and dirty, and deep undercover with the sexy spies of the Smithson Group--Christian Bane, Tripp Shaughnesesy, Julian Samms, and Kelly John Beach. Now, meet Eli McKenzie, a hunky operative who doesn't play by the rule book. . .on anything. . .

Episode Five:
The McKenzie Artifact

Get what you came for with Eli McKenzie, SG-5
Five months ago, SG-5 operative Eli McKenzie was in deep cover in Mexico, infiltrating a Spectra ring that kidnaps young girls and sells them into a life beyond imagining. Not being able to move on the Spectra scum right away was torture for the tough-but-compassionate superspy. But that wasn't the only problem--someone on the inside was slowly poisoning Eli, clouding his judgment and forcing him to make an abrupt trip back to the Smithson Group's headquarters to heal. Now, Eli's ready to return. . .with a vengeance. It seems his quick departure left a private investigator named Stella Banks in some hot water. Spectra operatives have nabbed the nosy Stella and are awaiting word on how to handle her disposal. Eli knows the only way to save her life and his is to reveal himself to Stella and get her to trust him. Seeing the way Stella takes care of the frightened girls melts Eli's armor, and soon, they find that the best way to survive this brutal assignment is to steal time in each other's arms. It's a bliss Eli's intent on keeping, no matter what he has to do to protect it. Because Eli McKenzie has unfinished business with Spectra--and with the woman who has renewed his heart--and this is one man who always finishes what he starts. . .

    Another thrilling sg-5 story

    Alison Kent¿s The McKenzie Artifact grabs you on page one and doesn¿t let go.***** Eli McKenzie¿s undercover SG-5 agent is trying to stop the selling of young girls by Spectra. A major thorn in his side is PI Stella Banks. Eli was poisoned several months ago and is just now coming back to the rebel camp. He finds Stella being held captive and subjected to the men from the camp. Eli joins forces with Stella to save the girls and to get out alive.***** Eli and Stella are a perfect match, both in determination, wits and passion. The McKenzie Artifact is a fast paced story, it¿s another gem in the SG-5 saga. Though it¿s a short story it¿s packed with intrigue, steamy sex and friendship. Everything I look for in an Alison Kent book.

    Another great SG-5 tale!

    I was sure that I wouldn't like this book as well as The Beach Alibi, my undoubted favorite in this series. It proved me wrong while further proving to be the most earthy, most gritty and the edgiest of this series to date. Eli McKenzie is attempting to rescue young girls who have been kidnapped and are headed for an uncertain future. Stella Banks is on a mission to retrieve the missing daughter of her housekeeper when she herself is taken captive, necessitating Eli's interference with her captors in order to keep her safe. Eli and Stella are naturals together and they go together like a hand and glove, perhaps the most compatible couple in this series. Thankfully there are continuing stories yet to come from Ms. Kent's incredibly talented mind, I am eagerly anticipating each one!
