Wranglers Challenge by Lindsay McKenna @lindsaymckenna #RLFblog #western #romanceHealing, like love, takes time

For Noah Mabry, it’s easier sometimes to relate to the dogs and horses he trains than to other people. Ever since his marriage became a casualty of the war in Afghanistan—torn apart by the PTSD he brought back with him—he prefers to be on his own. At the Bar C Ranch, where he works with a crew of fellow military vets, his gentle patience helps tame even the rowdiest mustang—but he’s about to meet a woman who needs a healing touch he’s not sure he can give.

Dair Wilson, a half-Comanche ex-Marine who lost a foot to an IED, has been hired on to assist Noah, but her deepest wounds aren’t visible. Growing up in an abusive home, she learned not to trust men, even ones who seem nothing but kind. After a wild horse sends her sprawling, the attentive care she receives from the Bar C family—and especially from Noah—is enough to convince her she’s found a place she can finally breathe easy. But one angry, damaged man poses a threat not only to Dair and Noah, but to everyone who’s built a new home at the Bar C.

Zone of Fire
by Lindsay McKenna

1. Zone Of Fire, Ebook only, Shadow Warriors Series, epilogue
to Never Surrender, HQN, July, 2014.

2. Taking Fire, HQN, 2.25.2015. Shadow
Warriors series pocket book and ebook.
3. On Fire, HQN, Ebook only, Shadow Warriors Series, Director’s
Cut to Taking Fire
Pub. date: 3.1.2015
I am working with Harlequin to do
something rather innovative for my many loyal readers. I got a lot of emails begging
me to right a novella epilogue for Never Surrender (Bay and Gabe, the main characters).
I did that, but I also wanted to take a secondary from that book, Mike Tarik, and
add him to this 11,000 word novella. I married the two of them into it so that the
novella was not only an epilogue regarding “what happened next to Bay and Gabe,”
but also became a bridge to Mike’s book, Taking Fire.
There are actually THREE books, with
Zone Of Fire, 2.1.2015 coming out first to set up Mike’s book. Then, on 2.25.2015,
Taking Fire comes out and is Mike and Khatereh’s story. It is followed on 3.1.2015
by On Fire, Ebook only. It is what I term a “director’s cut” to their
story. Unfortunately, in paperbacks, a 100,000 words is the max amount one can write
about a story. I over ran that mark by roughly 40,000 words! And I did not want
to delete it and forget it. My editor, Tara Gavin, agreed and so did Harlequin.
This is how these three books are
like boxcars in a row on a train, kind of thing. It’s a creative and new way to
present characters and their stories. And I hope you enjoy them. Do let me know?
Taking Fire is a story of US Navy
SEAL, Mike Tarik, who is an American citizen, but 1/2 Saudi and 1/2 American, through
his mother, Annie. His father is a world renown cardiac surgeon. Dr. Bedir Tarik
met his wife, Annie, over in Saudi Arabia where she was an American school teacher.
Bedir, who is Sufi, believes firmly that love is the only way to peace and harmony
in the world. He falls in love with Annie, and they marry in Riyadh. Later, she
gets pregnant with Mike and he is born in San Diego, California.
Bedir takes his young son over to
Saudi Arabia for three weeks every year. He has a charity in Riyadh, and he and
Mike take a pickup and distribute clothes, food and money to the poor at the fringes
of that city, as well as to many others areas. He teaches his son generosity, giving
back and being grateful for what he has.
Mike grows up wanting to become a
Navy SEAL. Bedir has already shown him his family’s lineage and tells his warrior
son that he has the genes of his warrior great-grandfather. Mike’s view on it is
that he wants to help the poor and oppressed, to rid them of tyrants who kill or
make their lives miserable. When he deploys to Afghanistan with Seal Team 3, he
works with NGO charities to bring food, clothing, and shoes to the desperately poor
Afghan villages near where his team is located.
He carries on his father’s belief
in always helping those who have less. But on one mission, he finds himself in need.
He and his four-man SEAL team are out on a mission. And it is a black ops US Marine
Corps sniper who saves his team and him from a deadly ambush. And she’s a woman!
Mike’s entire life changes in the moment he is injured and saved by this mysterious
operator who cares for him deep in the cave systems of the Hindu Kush Mountains
near the Pakistan border.
Sergeant Khatera Shinwari is wary
of this SEAL, must maintain her deep black ops cover and although she’s powerfully
drawn to Mike, there is no way she can act upon it. Mike, before he’s picked up
by a Night Stalker helicopter once he’s ready to leave her care for FOB Bravo, promises
her, he will see her again.
Khat doesn’t believe him, as much
as she wished she could. Her life is not her own. Her loyalty is to her Afghan people,
not to a single man like Mike. But life has a funny way of changing up, and Mike
isn’t about to just let this enigmatic, beautiful woman disappear out of his life.
No way…..
I had great fun creating this story
and it’s unlike anything my readers have read. I’m very excited about it, about
the sympathetic characters that you are sure to cheer on! And toward that end? I’ve
created a “Director’s Cut” of a much longer ending to Taking Fire. Don’t
worry, the book you’ve bought is complete with an HEA ending. But if you want to
know more of “what else” happened,” then On Fire, HQN, 5.1.2015,
digital only, 40,000 words long and $2.99, will be available to you to continue
their twisting and dangerous destiny with one another! And an HEA ending, of course!
