Lindsay McKenna hosted the Shadow Warriors table at the SOS America Military Tribute during the RT Booklovers Convention in Dallas (pictures to come). She is a Navy Veteran who proudly served during the Vietnam War. From her bio,
Naturally, Lindsay's military experience is the backbone of her writing--in addition to being credited with writing the first military romance novel (Captive of Fate, 1983), she has created a thriving sub-genre within the romance field. It is, therefore, no surprise that her many experiences in the U.S. Navy are a backdrop for her upcoming Operation: Shadow Warriors series.
RUNNING FIRE is Book 8 in her Shadow Warriors series,
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.
Lindsay has an exciting new series coming this fall ... and we will talk about it here at SOS Aloha!

I've got a couple of cookbooks, but no recipe books.ReplyDelete
All of my recipes are in an exercise book. Recipes I have written or pasted in.ReplyDelete
I got my grandmothers recipe book & cook from it often. Simple recipes with few ingredients but great flavour :-DReplyDelete
Sounds like an exciting series, and what a stunning owl! We have several cookbooks that we regularly refer to (my hubby tends to collect cookbooks to balance out all of the romances crowding the house, lol) but I tend to like to cobble things together and he likes to follow detailed recipes. Thanks for the giveaway...and you know that we always appreciate all that the military does to keep us safe!ReplyDelete
no. I don't cook and I've been asked nicely to stop trying :) thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I have loads of cookbooks, one from my mom that she got as a wedding gift over 60 years ago. Especially love the 2 Deb Macomber and the one Susan Mallery cookbooks that I have. Have made many recipes from all 3 of them.ReplyDelete
patoct (Pat L.)
I've had several family members serve in the Navy.ReplyDelete
We have a base in ConnectitcutReplyDelete
My uncle was in the Navy in WW!!. They have played a big part in all the wars we have been in.ReplyDelete
I received two recipe books at my bridal shower--one from each side of the family.ReplyDelete
my cousin's family is Navy, my family is Army.Delete
I have recipe books up the wazoo! However, I tend to stick to the same ol' same 'ol for quickness and ease--so am in the process of weeding out those cookbooks that I no longer use. I started out with Betty Crocker and Better Home & Gardens cookbooks that were wedding gifts...and those are my ol' tried and true for recipes that I like. We tend to eat simply and healthy and don't get into exotic stuff. :-) My Dad was Navy--radar specialist during WWII. Had 12 ships sunk while he was onboard...and made it home safely on the 13th ship. Lucky man! Thanks for the post, Kim. firstname.lastname@example.orgReplyDelete
I've got lots of cookbooks, and two recipe books. They're all in the cupboard above the fridge, so I rarely get them down.ReplyDelete
My husband was in the Navy but he was a SeaBee so not your typical sailor.ReplyDelete
One of my uncles served in the Navy during WWII.ReplyDelete
My maternal grandfather was in the Navy during WWII. He was a ship firefighter and was injured fighting a ship fire and forced to stay at base to recover. My grandmother got a letter from him complaining about being 'landed' a few days before she heard that his ship was sunk and most of the men were lost.ReplyDelete
We are a Navy town here in San Diego. Just had one of our aircraft carriers pull out for deployment a couple of days ago. I have toured one of them. Amazing how large they are.ReplyDelete
Not very much :/ReplyDelete
I have several recipe books with plastic inserts for the recipe cards. This arrangement works really well for favorite family recipes.ReplyDelete
Only that my dad was in the Navy before he met my mom. He said he worked as one of the cooks.ReplyDelete
my Dad and uncle were both in the Navy in WWII and my cousin was in on an aircraft carrier in the 60's. I've got some of my Dad's things that he kept.ReplyDelete
I have 2 uncles there were in the Navy during WWII, and a couple of cousins that are retired from the Navy.ReplyDelete
My great uncle was in the navy during WW2.ReplyDelete
Not much, I know I should know more.ReplyDelete
Don't know anything about the Navy. But like the Marine are dedicated people.ReplyDelete
