Some things can never be forgotten. A helicopter crash in Afghanistan. Capture. Torture. Now U.S. Navy nurse Skylar Pascal is struggling to regain control of her life after a trauma that nearly destroyed her. After losing so much, an ideal job at the Elk Horn Ranch in Wyoming offers Sky something she thought she'd never find again hope.
Former SEAL Grayson McCoy has his own demons. But something about Elk Horn's lovely-yet-damaged new nurse breaks something loose. Compassion and passion. And even as Gray works with Sky to piece her confidence back together, something deeper and more tender begins to unfurl between them. Something that could bring her back to life.
But not even the haven of Elk Horn Ranch is safe from dangers. And all of Sky's healing could be undone by the acts of one malicious man .

My review: Wolf Haven by Lindsay McKenna (Jackson Hole #9)
Wolf Haven made me understand a little more about what water boarding is like. How PTSD can effect someone for along time. It also showed the joy of seeing wolves. I wanted to hold and feed the cubs too. I could picture so well a little girl trying to herd the chicks around a yard.
Wolf Haven made me understand and feel with the characters. Skylar Pascal came home from Afghanistan with real issues and having a hard time being able to fit back into her profession, and family. Skylar has pride and wants to work and be normal again.
Grayson McCoy former SEAl has had to deal with some of the problems that Skylar is dealing with and wants to help her. Grayson is in charge of the Wolf preserve on Elk Horn Ranch. He is also the boss of Skylar. He is very attracted to Skylar.
The setting is Jackson Hole, WY on Elk Horn Ranch
I would love to visit a place like the ranch and also learn about the wolves and other animals.
Lindsay McKenna writes a lot about people with military experience and dealing with PTSD. Having a hard time coming back home to all the changes in them fitting back into life. Then I think that there are so many real soldiers that are dealing with that very issues every day.
Things that are hard for us to hear and understand, but is so much harder for those who pay the price for our freedoms and safety.
I will continue to read and get lost in Lindsay's stories.
I was given this ebook to read from Net Galley and Harlequin. In return I agreed to give honest review of Wolf Haven.
