In Wild Woman, the last book in Lindsay McKenna’s Sisters of the Arktrilogy, we are introduced to Jessica Merrill. A pilot in the legendary Black Jaguar Squadron, she’s the best of the best. While she has never failed on a mission, it isn’t her flying skill her newest quest relies on.

Her Native American heritage is the reason she has been chosen. She must infiltrate the home of a reclusive billionaire to retrieve a stolen totem. The totem represents power and history to the tribe that it was stolen from, and Jessica needs to keep all her wits about her to achieve the near impossible. The man who stole the totem is evil incarnate and won’t hesitate to kill any who stand in his way. There is no option for Jessica except success.

She won’t be going in alone. Mace Phillips has been pulled from the CIA to accompany her as her husband. Mace isn’t thrilled with the idea. He has too many secrets hidden in his past and too much heartache to even consider her as anything but a partner, yet with each moment he spends with Jessica, Mace finds the shadows lifting and his sorrow disappearing.

As the pressure grows, Mace and Jessica begin to find out how much they have invested in this mission. Not only do they need to bring the totem back before the billionaire can use it, they must also find a way to trust their hearts and open up to each other. Will they live through the mission to be able to see where their hearts will lead them?

Ms. McKenna has created another great story with a strong female character. Jessica is a woman confident enough in her abilities to be able to save the world, but she’s smart enough to know that she can’t always do it on her own. Her compassionate heart makes for touching scenes as she helps Mace deal with his sorrow. Her character is complex and interesting. Mace’s character is a modern man who knows the worth of his woman. He’s willing to let Jessica do what she does best and support her when he has to. The story is fast-paced and entertaining.
