The Defender by USA TODAY bestselling author Lindsay McKenna
by Lindsay McKenna
For those readers who are avidly waiting for my next book in the Wyoming Series, I wanted to get more deeply into another passion of mine: romantic suspense! If you enjoy action, adventure, threat, hot romance coupled with danger, you’ll enjoy The Defender. Katie Bergstrom is a twenty-six year old raptor rehabilitator who tries to help wounded and injured raptors back to health in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She was abandoned at birth by her mother. Rebelling, lost and always trying to find her mother, Katie goes through many foster homes and gets into teen trouble. She eventually winds up in Jackson Hole, where her luck changes and she’s given a new lease on life. Raptors, with their own unique magic, focus her life and give her reason to thrive, despite her dark, unhappy past.
Joe Gannon, born in Jackson Hole, is a Marine Corps captain who was wounded in Afghanistan. He comes stateside to find out he can never fight for his country again. The FBI offers him a job. He has been specially chosen to come home to try and get close to Katie Bergstrom. It is her birth mother, Janet Bergstrom, who is suspected of criminal activity. Can he lie to Katie? Is Katie really a part of her mother’s illegal activities? Most of all, Joe finds himself caught in an impossible situation because he must fight his attraction to Katie and remain undercover to discover the truth. Where do lies and truth begin and end? Can their growing love survive?
