|Summary, etc.:|| "Despite her sweet nature, Navy medic Bay Thorn's will is unbreakable. It has earned her not only the respect of her team, but also the love of Navy SEAL Gabe Griffin. And as soon as she wraps up the final six months of Operation Shadow Warriors in Afghanistan, she'll have her happily ever after--until her deployment goes horribly wrong. Bay's medical expertise is needed by the Taliban, and she is taken hostage. Her captor is ruthless and cruel, and Bay isn't exempt from his evil intents. All that's left now is her resolve and the too-distant memory of Gabe--her last and only hope for rescue. And to pull Bay from hell, this SEAL will have to break every rule in the book. But will Gabe find the woman he loves ... or a woman broken beyond recognition?"--from cover, page .

In the seventh book in her Shadow Warriors series, McKenna continues the story of medic Bay Thorn and her SEAL fiancé, Chief Gabe Griffin, introduced in Breaking Point (2014). When Bay returns to Afghanistan, she is captured by the Taliban. Forced to tend to their wounded and ignore the injured children seized for sex trafficking, she is wounded herself and finally escapes after being viciously raped by the Taliban leader. Gabe helps find her and kill the Taliban responsible. He then accompanies her through her hospitalizations until he can take her home to her family in Kentucky, while hoping that someday she will recognize him again. The story of Bay's painful recuperation, nightmares, flashbacks, and PTSD, despite endless support and patience from Gabe, who himself is often driven to exhaustion and despair, makes up the bulk of this truly memorable story, which does conform to the romance genre's requirement of a happy ending. While there are other romance titles about rape survivors finding love, this one has a special, heartbreaking resonance. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
