I’ve been enjoying the Shadow Warrior series, especially with Ms. McKenna’s ability to wring a deeply emotional response not just from her characters but also from her readers. This one touched me very deeply. I hurt for Leah at the emotional and physical abuse she’s been subjected to by the very people who should have been devoted to cherishing her. In contrast, the SEAL team, who are total strangers to her, is devoted to keeping her safe in the face of disciplinary action. I enjoyed the military action and danger that surrounds our characters and the tie-ins to some of the earlier stories in the series as the love story plays itself out.
