Mass Market Paperback: 384 pages
Publisher: HQN Books (April 28, 2015)

He was a haven in the midst of Hell…

Temporarily assigned to the Shadow Squadron in a troubled region of Afghanistan, Chief Warrant Officer and pilot Leah Mackenzie is no stranger to conflict—even if most of her physical and emotional scars are courtesy of her vicious ex. Still, she’s got a bad feeling about picking up a team of stranded SEALs. A feeling that’s all too justified once enemy fire hits their helicopter and all hell breaks loose…

SEAL Kell Ballard’s goal was to get the injured pilot out of harm’s way and find shelter deep in the labyrinth of caves. It’s a place of dark intimacy, where Leah finds unexpected safety in a man’s arms. Where prohibited attraction burns brightly. And where they’ll hide until the time comes to face the enemy outside…and the enemy within their ranks.

Being a former Military Wife, I knew that this was one book I wanted to read.  I love a good military novel, maybe because I can relate so well to some of the feelings and emotions portrayed, or the terms or situations in the story.

I can't say that I liked Leah, she kind of irked me from the get go and try as I did to like her, I don't think I ever did managed to achieve that.  Kell on the other hand I liked from the very first moment he is introduced in the book.  Maybe because I love a man in uniform?  Nah, it's not that, at least not all of it, but he just seemed like the perfect book hero that you fall in love with and can't get enough of.


Overall the book is well written and the story well told, I love that the author did her best to keep the military setting well portrayed and also respectful to the troops, something I really appreciate seeing as many other books don't.

I had never read anything by Lindsay McKenna, but now I'm quite interested to find other books written by her.


Thank you to TLC for providing me with a review copy of this book.
