About Running Fire

  • 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.

My Thoughts:

I was surprisingly pleased reading this unusual novel of love in the middle of a war! 

Author Lindsay McKenna takes her readers deeps into the Afghanistan mountains with an intriguing story that combines a truly lovely romance with a suspenseful mystery that will stay with you long after the last page.

"Running Fire" is the seventh novel in McKenna's Shadow Warriors series that feature strong women and heroic men changing and saving lives and finding love.  I highly recommend each and every one of these books!
