Dear Reader

At last, my next Wyoming series book! Starting in 2015, I will have two Wyoming series books in a row coming out, and then two Shadow Warrior books coming out in a row. All via HQN.

I love Iris Mason and her Elk Horn Ranch family as much as you do. And I love having Gus Hunter and her family from the Bar H, in the Wyoming series books, as well. In this story, youíll get to catch up with Iris and all the expansion thatís going on at her dude ranch. Iris is one of those people where grass will never grow under her feet!

She has a strong loyalty to ecology and saving the environment. And to that end, she has created a huge wildlife center on the ranch. Primarily to be a place for the local wolf population out of Yellowstone and Grand Tetons Parks that butt up against one another. She loves wolves and is lucky enough to snag Navy ex-SEAL, Grayson McCoy, to manage the facility. His mother is a world expert on wolves and he grew up with a lot of different wild animals in his house. A lot of her knowledge, while he grew up, rubbed off on Gray. And now that heís left the Navy, this is dream job come true for him.

R.N. Sky Pascal, who has suffered torture at the hands of the Taliban in Afghanistan, is desperately trying to find a job. Sheís spent six months in a Naval hospital, recovering from her trauma. With serious PTSD symptoms, sheís gone through many jobs, unable to hold them due to the stress and demands upon her. Her last hope is a job on the Elk Horn Ranch as a nurse and a part time babysitter for the children of the families coming to the dude ranch. Further, she will be expected to assist Gray McCoy at the wildlife center, when needed. Sky was once a confident and competent ER nurse who could handle any crisis without flinching. But now, broken by torture, struggling to reclaim herself, she must get a job. Iris Mason is her last hope.

We have many, many military men and women vets returning from Afghanistan. And PTSD is common to all of them, more or less, depending upon where they spent their deployment. There are no ďfront linesĒ any more. The enemy is everywhere and so is awaiting trauma to be experienced by our troops. As a military veteran myself (US Navy), Iíve had a lot of friends and some family, who has returned with PTSD. I know it up front, and close. And I hope by reading this story of about Sky and Gray, and their wolf puppies they care for, that you will perhaps understand more deeply, what this toxic trauma does to a person, to those who work with such a person, and their family.

Animals are always healing if we allow them into our lives. I hope you enjoy meeting Gracie, Crystal and Chert, the wolf puppies in the book. Iím a great wolf lover myself and have had the privilege of seeing them run wild in Yellowstone.

As with all my books, I write gritty, edgy and intense love stories about people who are wounded and struggling to get better. We are all wounded, thatís a fact. Whether we allow our wounding to run our lives or not, is a choice we all have to personally make. I love to write stories about wounded people who have the courage to take on the inner battle on the emotional and mental planes of themselves. Real courage is facing oneís wounds. If we throw ourselves forward with hope and faith, that by striving daily to get through that gauntlet, we will improve. Add to this passionate quest to heal, is the greatest healing ingredient of all: love. Love knows no bounds and is our most positive human emotion we own. When you combine love with wounding, then the person is bound to start an inner journey toward healing. Love is the light in our world. And the toxic darkness of our wounds cannot hide any longer when love is brought into the mix. I hope you enjoy Wolf Haven!

WOLF HAVEN in audio! Coming soon, at Donít miss it!

The "Top Gun of Women's Military Fiction," Linsday has had 115 books published under the McKenna name since 1981, most dealing with military or mercenary subjects, for several publishers: Simon and Schuster, Warner, Avon and Berkely, Harlequin/Silhouette. She is the originator of the Military Romance genre, with "Captive of Fate," Silhouette Special Edition, 1983. She has sold 23 million books worldwide and in 22 foreign languages. She proudly served in the US Navy and was a meteorologist.

Author Note

2014 is a very, very busy year for me and my books. Iím currently writing two series. One is about cowboys, my Wyoming Series. My other series, is Shadow Warriors. Since I created the military romance genre back in 1983 with Captive of Fate (Silhouette Special Edition), I continue to write in this area because I am, after all, a Navy military vet.

On top of all of this, Harlequin, bless their hearts, is taking my earliest thirty books and converting them into ebooks for my readers. That schedule is also part of what youíll see below, too. And as I said, I have a lot of books, both new and old, coming out in 2014.

First, letís cover SHADOW WARRIORS series, about women in combat beside the men they fall in love with! We started out with DANGER CLOSE, HQN, September, 2013. This was an ebook release only. Then, DOWN RANGE, HQN, December 2013, paperback and ebook release. In 2014 my first sequel, RISK TAKER, HRS, February 2013 followed next month by DEGREE OF RISK, HRS, March, happened. BREAKING POINT, HQN, 4.29.2014 is the next Shadow Warriorís book and is part of my second set of sequels. It is followed by NEVER SURRENDER, June 24, 2014.

Those who love stories about cowboys and have been following my Wyoming Series, will see the next book, WOLF HAVEN, HQN, December 2014, coming out. Itís a powerful book, intensely emotional, gritty and edgy. It also has some cute wolf pups that will most likely endear you. They sure did me!

Below are the Ebook releases on my earlier books folded into my super crammed schedule. There will be more on each release, plus the great new covers here at my website as their time to be released comes. Drop by for not only back cover info on each one, but also ďauthor commentsĒ by me about why I wrote the book or what moved me to write it. I find readers are always interested in the behind-the-scenes on why I wrote a particular book. Drop by often and get the inside scoop on these releases!

Hereís the full 2014 schedule of Lindsay McKenna books. You might want to print it out and keep it with your calendar so you wonít miss any of them. Happy Spring!
