Featured Book: The Loner by Lindsay McKenna
From the Author:
The Wyoming series, set in and near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, centers around people whose lives have been touched, either directly or indirectly, by war and who have rallied together as a community to support one another.
In the first book in the series, The Loner, I wanted to bring PTSD into the spotlight and show how it can affect our country’s heroes. It is heartbreaking that our men and women who are returning from combat find little in the way of help upon their return stateside. Families educated to recognize the symptoms of PTSD can cope better with them, instead of being wounded by them as well. A person who has PTSD may feel and behave like a loner. But this can be overcome with help, love and understanding.
Dakota Carson is a veteran returned from war only to face another battle—this time against PTSD. He survives on the edges of society with his Navy SEAL training, asking for no hand outs and no help. Sheriff’s Deputy Shelby Kincaid is the only woman in the Teton County Sheriff’s Department. When she meets Dakota Carson, she is drawn to this wounded loner. The more he pushes her away, the more determined she becomes to help. She’s well-trained; she recognizes the symptoms of PTSD and discovers he spent ten years in black ops, fighting for his country. Now he lives in a ramshackle cabin deep in the Tetons. Alone. Feeling abandoned by his country. With Shelby’s love and support, as well as the Jackson Hole community’s help, Dakota strives to find life beyond the war.
But once a Seal, always a Seal. Dakota’s protective mechanisms respond when Shelby’s life is threatened. Just when they have the courage to reach out to one another, their lives are ripped apart. Can Dakota overcome his PTSD, engage his Seal driven knowledge and experience in order to save her? Or not? Strap in for one helluva ride.
