This is another captivating book by an author who skillfully brings you into all of her stories and allows you to read, feel and sense the drama and humanity experienced by all of the protagonists. Each of McKenna's books are very special and are worth reading because when you finish the last page you are left with something precious that you will always remember. I continue to be captivated by how real her characters are. Her descriptions of the protagonists in the story as well as their surroundings are so vivid that you feel that you are part of the story plot and are able to experience and visualize each moment described in the book. What is unique about all of the books written by this author, is that with her gift of words, by sheer magic, she allows you to LIVE through the story as it unfolds and gives you, the reader, a chance to EXPERIENCE the words on each page. This author enables you to become so captivated with the plot and all of its characters that you can’t wait to turn the page. And as you turn the page, you feel like each word, each sentence, each paragraph is carefully used in order to give you a full sense of being very much a part of the story that’s unfolding. Just like a gifted musical conductor uses each instrument and musical note in a finely tuned orchestra to give the listener a musical experience that is never forgotten, Ms McKenna is able to achieve that very same thing with her gift of words. As with all of McKenna’s books, I can't put them down till I get to the last page. When I do that, I am filled with mixed emotions because there is always a happy ending and, yet, I am sad because I have reached the end of the book. Well...that's when I pick up the next one where the saga continues with some of the same characters of the original story I read. I highly recommend this author!

her instructor, Major Dave York taught Captain Maya Stevenson how to fly a helicopter. Though he proved to be a great teacher, he also showed he was a chauvinist firmly believing women did not belong in combat. When offered an opportunity to join a black ops scenario in Peru, Maya jumps at the chance, setting up a search and destroy unit targeting drug lords entering Bolivia.

Four years later, York faces discrimination charges. His only hope to save his military career is to travel to Peru to teach Maya how to fly the newest helicopter that Morgan Treyhorn purchased for this cadre. An angry and humiliated York journeys to Maya¿s base only to find a brilliant operation in spite of out dated aircraft. He revises his opinion of women, especially Maya who he now loves. She always loved the person she now feels is the real Dave. However, neither one wants to give up their career, which means stationing on different continents, making the commute a bit difficult. Consequently, a relationship seems doomed to failure.

The best-selling ¿Morgan Mercenaries¿ series continues with HEART OF STONE featuring Inca¿s twin sister. Maya, a member of the Black Jaguar Clan, who has paranormal abilities that she accepts as part of her essence. The sexual tension between Dave and Maya feels as if the pages will burn the fingers of the reader, which adds to the audience enjoyment of Lindsay McKenna¿s latest romantic suspense.
