Malachi Blackfeather has spent twenty years in the Army. Two of those years as a Vietnam POW. Now that he's out, all he wants is some peace and quiet to figure out what to do with the rest of his life. Between the flashbacks, and an over interest in sex that is now being called sex addiction, finding his path isn't easy.

Kat is trying to escape an abusive marriage. Her soon to be ex is a master at manipulating the system, and her family thinks she should stay with him, "because no other man will want her". She's looking for escape in any form she can get it.

When they meet, sparks fly. Trapped by a blizzard, can two damaged people, who think there is no chance of love in the world for them, find each other, and survive an unforeseen circumstance that puts both of them in danger?

Mystery, romance, and danger, fill this novel, with a story that will draw you in and not let go.


The heater stood dark and cold.  I should have gotten up after we were done.  Filled it and restarted it.  I hadn’t wanted to move.  Still didn’t want to, despite the cold in the room.  Dim light streamed in through the window, sleety snow still battered the glass.  Shook the door in its frame.  How long could this blizzard go on?

I tightened my arms around Kat.  Forever.  Then she would have to stay right in this room with me--in my arms.  Nothing made sense, everything my life had been for the last twenty-five years rang like a bad dream, a nightmare from the pits of Vietnam.  So dead inside that any feeling fed me, woman after woman, man after man, no one let me hold on to what I felt for more than a few shared moments.  Lies whispered to the tiny ember of my soul that I had left.  This is the one, they told me, this one will make you feel, will bring you back to life. 

They never did.

Kat ran her hand down my arm.  Snuggled closer to me.  A chill that had nothing to do with how cold the room had become, shook me.  Spoke to me.  I could again with her, and I knew I would keep feeling what I was.  Alive.  Warm.  As if I had a soul inside me, not just a demon who preyed on others for my next fix of emotions.

“I should fill that heater and get us some warmth again.”

“Yeah, I suppose one of us should,” she said with no intention to do so in her voice. 
I tightened the bear’s embrace I held her in, tangled my legs with hers.  She pushed at my arm, wanted to make me let go of her. 

“I don’t want to let go of you yet,” I said.  If I let her go, the surging emotions inside me would vanish with the warmth of holding her.

***Nona’s review of Life Flight by Shaunna Wolf***

Malachi and Kat are two broken people. Malachi’s haunted by the deaths he’s seen in twenty years in the military and the torture he endured as a POW. Kat has suffered from an abusive husband and a family that wanted to punish her for being a free spirit. They meet in what’s supposed to be a hook-up, but the experience turns dangerous when the third person in their threesome tries to trick Malachi into choking Kat, telling him that she “likes it.”

Someone wants Kat dead.  When Malachi understands this, he moves to protect her. He feels close to her in a way he never has to a woman. She helps quiet the “demon” inside him. Kat, meanwhile, falls for him when they find themselves trapped together by a snowstorm. She just doesn’t know if she can trust any man after all the hurt she’s endured. Just when she seems ready to give Malachi her trust, danger swoops in again.

Life Flight is a very compelling read. The mystery had me guessing—just when I thought I knew who the bad guy was, there was a new twist. But it was the main characters that really had me riveted. Malachi and Kat are not “nice” people. They can be crude and rough and unlikeable. But they’re also in pain. Their inner turmoil is heart-wrenching and the love they feel for each other is like a breath of hope. I really rooted for them to be happy together.

Life Flight is an erotic story. Sex is an important way the hero and heroine connect. The book is also an intense mystery and there were some hard-to-read scenes when Kat is imprisoned by her stalker. But most of all, it is a captivating read about two people who never believed in love finally finding it.
