McKenna understands the mind of a warrior, and readers will love this story of a scarred soldier and his own personal Valkyrie finding salvation in each other’s arms. With warriors returning from the war suffering from PTSD every day, McKenna’s story is relevant, moving and eye-opening.

Deputy Sheriff Shelby Kincaid’s heart is touched when she looks into Dakota Carson’s eyes. The grizzly bear attack that sends him to the emergency room also places him squarely in softhearted Shelby’s orbit. After 10 years as a Navy SEAL, Dakota is buffeted by brutal nightmares and flashbacks, so he’s sought seclusion in a dilapidated mountain cabin. Slowly, Shelby draws him out of his comfort zone, making him want a real life for the first time in years. But when Shelby’s life is threatened and the two discover the evil is a common link from their past, Dakota will call upon all his skills to keep her safe, even as he questions whether a life together is possible.
