DREAM OF ME by Lindsay McKenna CONTEST!! EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT!!!

May 20, 2017

Hi Readers! It’s almost release day for Dream of Me by Lindsay McKenna!!!

DREAM OF ME, 4B1, is a Delos series novella and Sequel to BROKEN DREAMS, Book 4. Alexa Culver is the fraternal twin to her older brother, Matt. She was an Air Force A-10 combat pilot for three tours in Afghanistan. On her last deployment she met shy but sincere Marine Corps Sergeant Gage Hunter, who is a sniper. He too, is based at Bagram Army base outside of Kabul. They are a most unlikely couple to fall in love, but perhaps it is their different world experience that is the glue that binds them.

They have worked through Alexa being captured along with many other charity women at a village, and having to be rescued by Gage and US Navy SEALs. This is a follow-up novella on where they stand with one another now that they are out of military. Alexa works at Artemis Security and so does Gage. Each has different wounds that aren’t entirely healed. Especially in Alexa, who had been kidnapped to become a sex slave to a millionaire in Pakistan. Gage is a hero in her eyes like no other man. He has the patience and love of her to deal with her sometimes awkward moments when PTSD flashbacks of her captivity hits her.

Alexa loves Gage fiercely and knows she still has issues to work through, grateful that he stands by her. When she goes to Paris, France, to attend a Human Rights conference, no one expects what is about to happen. Alexa’s family, part Greek, Turkish and American, has made powerful, rich enemies. Their world is suddenly upended once again. And Gage isn’t sure they can mend the bridges once again between them after this latest attack on Alexa. Can their love survive?

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT from Dream of Me by Lindsay McKenna

Valdrin Rasari took one last look in the mirror of the Fontainebleau Hotel, only blocks from the famed Eiffel Tower. Tonight he was going to kidnap one of the Culver family’s grown children: Alexa Culver. He smiled coldly into the full-length gold framed mirror. His mouth curved even more at the irony that he, one of the major sex traffickers in the world, would be a wolf in sheep’s clothing at this conference on sex slavery. He could easily travel the world in disguise with forged passports. Right now, fifty countries had him on their no-fly list. Only third world countries were open to him buying the best children from parents who were starving. “Sell me your child, and you will live to put food on the table for a year for the rest of your family. It’s a good trade.”

This evening at the cocktail party in the huge chandelier ballroom downstairs, no one would recognize him. At six feet tall, muscular without being muscle-bound, he would carry a cane, under the guise of Dr. Analius Revig from the University of Oslo. His injury was from a “skiing accident” in his twenties, of course. Today, his short black hair was dyed gray, and his square-jawed face now sported a sporty gray mustache. His brown eyes had blue contacts over them, covered further by a pair of fashionable wire-rim glasses. After all, he was pretending to be a sixty-five-year-old man . . .

Since his alter ego was a professor, he dressed in a fashionable brown wool sport coat and black wool trousers. Under the elegant coat, he wore a white cotton shirt that had been ironed to perfection; it gave him a professorial look. He wore a black bow tie that was in keeping with the look he desired.

He was looking forward to prowling the huge gathering, eavesdropping, and seeing who was there. Valdrin took great enjoyment in being undercover. He spoke six different languages, Norwegian being one of them. Placing his old leather wallet into his coat pocket and his passport in an inner pocket, he adopted the proper slump and slight lean to the right, his cane in his left hand. Fortunately, he had one of those nondescript faces that no one would ever recognize. In fact, he had destroyed any photos of himself for the last thirty of his forty-five years on this earth. No one really knew who the monstrous Rasari was or what he looked like, even while he was on every country’s radar.

He left his bodyguards behind, a door between the sumptuous rooms. They were handlers from the compound who also looked nondescript, nothing like the usual hulking guards. He smiled, ruffling his hair so it looked like an older person’s hair. Perfecting his slump to the right and engaging a proper limp, he walked around the huge suite until he felt comfortable with his disguise. His target? None other than Alexa Culver who was attending. The pleasure of revenge filled him. By the end of the night she would be lured into his suite, drugged, and then become his personal sex slave. And then her loving family would suffer equally as much, never knowing what happened, where she was and that she would never return home.

HAVE YOU PICKED UP MY LATEST WIND RIVER VALLEY SERIES BOOK? WIND RIVER COWBOY!

An unexpected reunion . . .

Kira Duval was part of a Special Forces team that got caught in an ambush—leaving only two wounded survivors: herself and Weapons Sergeant Garret Fleming. Losing her team was traumatic, and in the chaotic aftermath, as the Army moved them from hospital to hospital, she lost Garret too. But she never lost her secret yearning for him.

Finally, she gave up trying to track him down back in the States. But as she settles in at the Bar C cattle ranch in Wyoming, a place where veterans can find a home and a place to heal, she’s introduced to her sandy-haired, hazel-eyed housemate: none other than Garret Fleming.

They’re a long way from Afghanistan—and a long way from the people they used to be before tragedy changed their lives. But as Kira earns her keep by caregiving for the ranch owner’s bedridden, alcoholic father—a task that sometimes feels more challenging than any black ops mission—she finds that even in peacetime Garret still has her back, and that in this warm, welcoming place, the passion she resisted in the heat of battle may finally have a chance to flouish.

Wind River Rancher by Lindsay McKenna EXCERPT #4

I wanted to give you a New Year’s Day gift– a 4th excerpt from my Wind River Valley Series book. I hope you enjoy it!
Wind River Rancher by Lindsay McKenna
Book 2 of the Wind River Valley Series
fb-boots-wrr-copy

“His anxiety ran him. He had no control over it and he’d
found out quickly, after his discharge, that a stressful job
only tripled the monstrous anxiety that was always there,
always waiting to leap upon him and scatter his thoughts,
his actions.

As he bit into the burger, he closed his eyes, made a low
sound of pleasure in the back of his throat, slumping against
the metal chair, in Nirvana. Reese knew if he gulped it down,
he’d more than likely throw it up, so he tamped down on the
animal desire to gulp. He chewed it slowly, savoring every
last bite of the lettuce, tomatoes, onion, cheddar cheese,
and bacon on it. It took him thirty minutes to clean up
everything. The apple pie was melt-in-your mouth, reminding
him of his mother’s own home-cooked pies.

An old ache centered in his heart. His parents wanted
him home, but God, that had been a disaster. Reese wasn’t
going to make them pay for his PTSD, and they didn’t understand
why he had to leave. He wasn’t the best at talking
about his shame over the symptoms that he couldn’t control.

His father had been in the military, retired, and was
now a hardworking mechanic. He had saved all his life for
retirement, and Reese wasn’t about to take his money that
he’d offered to him. He had to stand on his own two feet,
pull himself up by his bootstraps, and not accept handouts.

As he rose and placed the chair against the wall, he saw
the door open. A young woman with light brown hair,
slightly curly around her oval face, walked in. All his acute
senses focused on her. She was wearing a black baseball
cap, a blue chambray shirt like the one he wore, a heavy
Levi’s jacket, and a pair of loose-fitting jeans that indicated
she had a lush figure hidden beneath them. His heart
jolted as their eyes met briefly. She had sky-blue eyes, just
this side of turquoise, wide set and intelligent. She was
attractive, wore no makeup, but her high cheekbones were
flushed, as if she’d been running or working out hard.

His stomach clenched, and suddenly, Reese worried that
if she was the owner of the Bar C, he might not get the job.
That she’d be afraid of him like so many other women were,
once they saw him. In the Corps, wearing his uniform or
utilities, women had always given him a pleasing look,
scoping him out, their gazes telling him they’d like to know
him a lot better. He almost laughed as he struggled to get
his anxiety corralled. Since he’d fallen from grace, his
scruffy, bearded, homeless look scared the hell out of females.

Reese knew he wasn’t a bad-looking man, but
somehow, no woman could see the real him in his present
state of dishevelment. He would never hurt a woman or
child. But the look in their eyes spoke of exactly that: fear
that he was capable of violence against them. It was a bitter
pill to swallow to be judged by what he wore on the outside
instead of who he really was inside.”

WIND RIVER RANCHER by Lindsay McKenna — EXCERPT!

December 16, 2016

Hi Dear Readers!!
My latest cowboy romance, Wind River Rancher was just award a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly Magazine. I created the Wind River Valley series for Zebra/Kensington. The cowboy hero of this book is a down on his luck Marine Corps captain forced to return to civilian life.
wind-river-rancher-revised-comp

Most readers don’t know about this magazine because it’s the icon within the traditional publishing industry. PW, as we refer to it, is the iconic queen of it all. It’s sort of like when PW speaks, everyone listens.

To receive a “starred review” on any book, is like winning an Oscar. And as a writer and storyteller, I never expect to ever be reviewed by PW, much less received it. Here’s the review!

To celebrate, here is the opening to Wind River Rancher! Enjoy and share! Thank you!

EXCERPT: Wind River Rancher by Lindsay McKenna
Reese Lockhart’s stomach was tight with hunger as he
stood at the outskirts of a small Wyoming town called
Wind River. The sign indicated a population of two thousand.
He’d gone a month without decent food. Six inches
of snow stood on the sides of the road where he’d walked
the last ten miles on 89A north. It headed toward Jackson
Hole, where he was hoping to find work.

The town, for a Monday afternoon, was pretty slow. A
couple of pickup trucks came and went, a few people
walked along the sidewalks on either side of the highway
that ran through the center of town. He halted outside
Becker’s Hay and Feed Store, an aged redbrick building
standing two stories high. The red tin roof was steep and
sunlight reflected off it, making Reese squint. Bright lights
now hurt his eyes.

Taking a deep breath, feeling the fear of rejection once
again, he pushed open the door to the store. Would he get
yelled at by the owner? Told to get out? It was early May
and snow had fallen the night before. The sleepy town of
Wind River still had slush on its streets midday.

The place was quiet, smelled of leather, and he saw a
man in his sixties, tall, lean, and with silver hair, sitting
behind the counter. He was sitting on a wooden stool that
was probably the same age as he was, an ancient-looking
calculator in his work-worn hands as he methodically
punched the buttons.

Girding himself, ignoring the fact he hadn’t eaten in two
days, Reese’s gaze automatically swung around the huge
establishment. A hay and feed store was something he was
familiar with. Maybe the owner wanted some part-time
help. He needed to make enough money to buy a decent
meal.

Shoving away the shame he felt over his situation, he
saw the man lift his head, wire-rim spectacles halfway
down his large nose, his blue eyes squinting at Reese as he
approached the long wooden counter.

“Howdy, stranger. Can I help you?” the man asked.

“Maybe,” Reese said. “I’m looking for work. I saw you
have several big barns out back, and a granary. Do you have
any openings?” Automatically, Reese tensed. He knew he
looked rough with a month’s worth of beard on his face,
and his clothes were dirty and shabby. At one time, he’d
been a Marine Corps captain commanding a company of
120 Marines. And he’d been damn good at it until—

“I’m Charlie Becker, the owner,” the man said, shifting
and thrusting his hand across the desk toward him.
“Welcome to Wind River. Who might you be?”

“Reese Lockhart,” he said, and he gripped the man’s
strong hand. He liked Charlie’s large, watery eyes because
he saw kindness in them. Reese was very good at assessing
people. He’d kept his Marines safe and helped them through
their professional and personal ups and downs over the
years he commanded Mike Company in Afghanistan. Charlie
was close to six feet tall, lean like a rail, and wore a
white cowboy shirt and blue jeans. Reese sensed this older
gentleman wouldn’t throw him out of here with a curse—
or even worse, call law enforcement and accuse him of
trespassing.

The last place where he’d tried to find some work, they’d
called him a druggie and told him to get the hell out; he
smelled. While walking the last ten miles to Wind River,
Reese had stopped when he discovered a stream on the flat,
snow-covered land, and tried to clean up the best he could.
The temperature was near freezing as he’d gone into the
bushes, away from the busy highway, and stripped to his
waist. He’d taken handfuls of snow and scrubbed his body,
shivering, but hell, that was a small price to pay to try to not
smell so bad. He hadn’t had a real shower in a month,
either.

“You a vet, by any chance?” Charlie asked, his eyes
narrowing speculatively upon Reese.

“Yes, sir. Marine Corps.” He said it with pride.

EXCERPT! Wind River Wrangler by Lindsay McKenna. THREE A.M. and JARRED OUT OF BED….

October 23, 2016

Hi READERS!

This is so much fun sharing slivers and slices of Wind River Wrangler with you just before it’s release date of 10.25.16. Here’s the next one! Enjoy 😉

Lindsay McKenna: Roan Taggart is a man of few words, but a lot of action. He’s learned to stuff his emotions down deep inside of him in order to be a black ops soldier. The last thing on his mind is a relationship with a woman….maybe….here’s an exclusive excerpt for you:

EXCLUSIVE GIFTS if you pre-order and they'll show up in your email box a day before the release date!

EXCLUSIVE GIFTS if you pre-order and they’ll show up in your email box a day before the release date!

SCENE SET UP:
Roan Taggart has just gotten Shiloh Gallagher, the author, into the employee house. She’s been assigned a bedroom by Maud Whitcomb. It has been nearly a week since Shiloh moved in and shares the house with him.

EXCERPT: THREE A.M.– …AND JARRED OUT OF SLEEP….
“Roan snapped awake. It took a millisecond for him to key his hearing. Moonlight filtered weakly through the semi-opaque curtains pulled across both windows. His six senses were online and he quietly moved out of bed. He wore only a pair of dark blue cotton pajama bottoms, his upper body naked. Twisting the door knob, the door quietly opened. Slipping like a shadow into the darkened hall, he sensed someone moving around out in the kitchen. Shiloh? He glanced at the watch on his wrist. Three a.m.

Halting in the living room, he saw Shiloh in the kitchen, putting a copper tea kettle on the stove. Her hair was unruly and she was wearing pale pink silky pajama bottoms and a pink cotton tee that outlined her breasts to perfection.

Hell.

She looked sleepy, hair tangled and wasn’t exactly graceful with her movements. The sense that she could not really take care of herself came across strongly to Roan. It wasn’t that Shiloh was weak or stupid. And maybe because of his black ops training, he was at the other end of the spectrum; too alert and having that situational awareness that could help save his life. She was obviously sleepy, rubbing her eyes, yawning.

There wasn’t anything to dislike about her and Roan’s mouth flexed downward and thinned. Shiloh wasn’t helpless, just not aware of her surroundings. Maybe he could help her open up her awareness a little more since she was being stalked. It could save her life some day.”

INTERVIEW WITH LINDSAY MCKENNA ON CREATING WIND RIVER WRANGLER!

Lindsay McKenna: I love my secondary characters and I try to make them as interesting and with as much depth and breadth as my hero and heroine. Meet Maud Whitcomb, the owner of the Wind River Ranch in the valley! She’s a fifty-year old, take-no-prisoners, strong ranching woman with a heart of gold. Let’s drop in on an exclusive excerpt with her and Shiloh Gallagher, the heroine!

SET-UP FOR SCENE: Shiloh Gallagher has just been picked up at the Jackson Hole Airport by Roan Taggart, wrangler for Maud and Steve Whitcomb. Maud is a long time friend of Shiloh’s family and has invited her to come and stay as long as she wants. Shiloh has been stalked by an unknown man and it has rattled her after six months of being hunted. Her writing is her livelihood and since the stalking has ramped up, she’s gotten writer’s block. Maud invites her to come West to stay at their Wind River Ranch. And now, we’re dropping in on a conversation between Maud and Shiloh at the ranch….

EXCERPT:

“Maud smiled. “Did Roan find you at the airport in time?”

“He sure did. About scared the crap out of me.”

“Oh?”


“He came up behind me and called my name. I about jumped out of my skin.”


 Maud smiled. “Did he tell you he was in black ops? US Army? A Special Forces weapons sergeant?”


Rolling her eyes, Shiloh said, “No, but it sure explains to me why he came up behind me so silent. I never heard or felt him coming. He’s pretty closed mouth.” And then she laughed a little. “Well, if he was black ops, why wouldn’t he be that way? Right?” She grinned over at Maud, who chuckled.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF LINDSAY MCKENNA…A PEEK BEHIND THE CURTAIN OF AN AUTHOR’S LIFE…

October 13, 2016

Hey Readers!
Here’s a funny I want to share with all of you. I term it: A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A WRITER. You don’t get peeks behind the curtain often on us, but this one is worth sharing ;-).

My husband, David, is a voracious readers. I called him in from his office to come and look at the memes you folks had created. He about had a heart attack, haha….here’s how it went:

“Dave, come and see the promo ads that Kensington just sent me.”

Grumble, grumble…..”I’m busy….”

“Well UNbusy yourself and get in here. I want to see what you think of the memes.”

He comes shuffling into my office, scowling and leans over my shoulder.

I click on the Johnstone/McKenna ad.

fb-size-cowboy-copy

“Oh, my GOD!” he spouted, his eyes bulging. “Are you serious?”

“About what?” I demanded, not understanding his out-of-character reaction. He’s staring at the screen, at that ad.

“I don’t believe it!” He jabs his finger at the screen. “Do you KNOW who this man is? William Johnstone?”

“He writes westerns and is a New York Times Best Selling author for Kensington,” I replied, not understanding his wild man reaction.

“No, no, you don’t understand,” and he straightens up, his hands flying all over the place.

“WHAT don’t I understand, Dave? God, it’s an ad. If you don’t like it, say so, okay?”

He stares at me like I’m an alien who has just landed from Mars. “You don’t know who he is? He’s only the most famous western writer in the world! I’ve read dozens of his books. They’re the best of all the western writers I read.”

I give him a bored look. “You never tell me what author or what story you’re reading. How can I know?” (He’s a scorpio….they keep EVERYTHING to themselves…).

He looked at the ad, utter amazement in his expression. “That—that’s REALLY something that Kensington has put YOUR BOOK next to a book by William Johnstone! They must really think a lot of you.”

“So? You like the ad?”

“Like it? I-I’m stunned. I mean, Johnstone is the best of all the western writers in THE WORLD!!! He writes about more than just cowboys, too. He writes about mountain men, different aspects of the West…” and his voice trails off in admiration for the author.

(Thought you Girls would like to see this little diatribe ;-))

And then, on to meme #2 with the description of Roan…Dave looks at that and says, “That’s great writing they did on that meme.”

I gave him a one-eyebrow raised look. “That’s MY writing from the book, Dave. MINE. Not theirs.” (Note: he doesn’t read my books so there you go….couldn’t tell my writing from anyone else’s).

“Oh!” and then he flushes and gets embarrassed. “Oh…well, the writing is really, really good.”

“Bet you thought William Johnstone wrote it, huh?” I couldn’t resist a jab.

He kind of gave me a silly-assed grin and mumbled, “Well, for a moment, I really did think it might have William Johnstone who had wrote that ad for your book.”

And so it goes…a woman author gets NO credit for her writing, haha. I patted Dave’s arm and said, “Okay, go away now.”

“I do like the memes.”

“Good, glad you do. See you at dinner….”

He shuffles off toward his office, hands in pocket, shaking his head (and I’m sure it’s still over the surprise of his beloved William Johnstone being on the same ad with one of my books). I’m still laughing about it, but I closed the door first so he couldn’t hear me giggling.
