Meet the Author

Liliana Hart spent five years teaching music in the public education system. She molded America’s youth, busted kids for smoking pot in the restrooms, and broke up illicit affairs behind the stage on a regular basis. (Liliana’s Addison Holmes Mystery Series, about a small town teacher who gets into a whole lot of trouble, is somewhat autobiographical, but she won’t confess to which parts).

Liliana began reading romance novels with all her new found free time, and when she ran out of things to read, she decided to write her own novels.

As soon as I started Sins and Scarlet Lace, I was hooked! Realizing that Declan and Sophia's story was not going to be a typical love story, I was anxious to find out how...and how quickly...they would resolve their relationship. Ms. Hart doesn't make it easy on them, or us. If you love reading sexy, amazing, stomach clenching love stories, then this one is for you!

I started with Sins and Scarlet Lace and have now read all of her existing books... and can't wait for the story of Shane.  All of them were excellent.  I will continue to follow Liliana Hart's writing... It's contagious, fun, exciting, romantic, in other words everything you'll love in a book...what a great imagination

Well-written 150 page story of alpha males and the romance,family, and work with pages of very descriptive sex. Too short to be classified as a book. The excerpt for Kill Shot is good but Barnes and Noble does not list story (book?).

I have read all of the previous Mackenzie books and Sins and Scarlet Lace does not disappoint! First off, I am such a sucker for a second chance romance. Declan and Sophia had every opportunity for a happily ever after, but Declan could not justify putting Sophia’s life in danger because of his job. What Declan did not know was that by sacrificing their happily ever after, and pushing Sophia into the arms of another man, he would change them both irreparably.  To me Declan is, or was, one of the more anguished characters in the MacKenzie series. I could tell that his heart was broken before I even knew about Sophia. But, in Sins and Scarlet Lace we see so much more of him, and his demons. Despite what Sophia had to go through, I think it actually made her a stronger person, and a woman more able handle Declan’s past, and future. I feel that neither one of them were ready, as a couple, in the past to take on the kind of commitment and strength it takes to be a part of Declan’s lifestyle. The time apart and the journey they went through ended up making them an invincible couple. Now that Sophia is taking the fall for her ex-husband’s traitorous activities, Declan is stepping up and taking care of what was always his. Declan may be all gung-ho about jumping back into their love-fest, but Sophia has some reservations. She has just escaped one damaging relationship, can she risk her heart and soul so quickly with what might be another one? Sophia definitely struggles with herself in this book. For some time her heart and her mind are at war on what is best for her. Eventually, her heart wins out. While in the midst of a battle between life and death, Sophia and Declan reignite their passion. I loved the chemistry between these two; you can tell that they never really stopped loving one another. And of course the sex is HOT!  Ms. Hart has this uncanny ability to create a story and characters that her readers fall in love with. I have not read a book of hers that I did not absolutely LOVE. With Declan and Sophia I felt such a deeper connection, their emotions seemed magnified because of their past. I really cannot say enough fabulous things about Sins and Scarlet Lace, and the MacKenzie series in general. If you are looking for a book with equal parts steam and suspense, you've found it! Happy Reading!

I love Liliana Hart books. I came across the book Dane just by looking around online and thats all it took... I have read all of the Mackenzie series and love them... Declan Mackenzie was the one who stuck out with me.. Very secretive always showing up when needed just what you would expect in a hero... I was so excited to see him get his happy ending even though he had to fight for her... I loved the book just like I loved all the books. When I read them it  is almost like you are part of their family... Now I can not wait for Shane's Story.. Keep the books coming love them all

Reviewed by Juli Williamson for Readers' Favorite Sins and Scarlet Lace by Liliana Hart is an exciting romance full of intrigue and lust. After a life threatening injury while working for the government, Declan MacKenzie breaks Sophia’s heart and throws her out of his life. Sophia marries a man known to Declan. When her husband is killed and branded a traitor and Sophia is contained by Homeland Security as a possible traitor to the United States, the only person she knows to call is Declan. Anger at Declan and for the past is almost more than Sophia can deal with, but Declan has never forgotten her and he is determined to protect her and get to the truth. The question is, will she allow Declan to get into her heart again? With Sins and Scarlet Lace, Liliana Hart creates a story of lovers reunited and overcoming the obstacles of the past. It is fast paced with just the right amount of steamy sex and conflict between the main characters, with a hint of military and covert operations. The lovers have to work together to solve the case against Sophia and in doing so will have to communicate about the past as well as any possible future.  Liliana Hart weaves a seamless tale and makes me want to read the other MacKenzie novels. Alluding to the large MacKenzie family and siblings makes you want to continue getting to know the whole family. Liliana Hart’s writing style makes the idea a welcome one. I cannot wait to start the next one.

When I started this series I had never heard of Liliana Hart. All I can say about her and her books in one word amazing. I'm hooked! Cant wait for more. So happy Dec finally found love like the rest of his family.

very sexy!!! The story line is great! I think I have found a series that I need to continue to read!!The chemistry that Declan and Sophia have is strong. No matter what Declan did to get her to move on, he never felt anything for anyone, not like he felt for Sophia. You can feel the intensity on every page when those two are together. The story flows really well, and was very easy to read! I know that I am going to continue to read about the MacKenzie family!

I had been waiting for so long to read Declan's story and what a story it was. I couldn't read it fast enough. I absolutely loved it. I also like how the other MacKenzie brothers and cousins pop up is the stories. As usual, Liliana did not disappoint with her writing.I can't wait to read the next book MacKenzie book about Shane. I am also so looking forward to reading about Gabe a new character in the last few MacKenzie books in Kill Shot which is due out in May.
