Synopsis:  She needs his protection almost as much as she needs his heart…


Rebecca Mayes has already endured more than her fair share of tragedy. After her husband was killed in a horrific car crash, she’d do anything to shield herself from more heartache. A highly sought after attorney, Rebecca’s success in the courtroom has not come without costs. The disgruntled ex-husband of a client is seeking revenge on the one he blames for his troubles—and his sights are set on Rebecca. While she remains blissfully unaware, he’s stalking her, and getting closer every day.


Navy SEAL Patrick “Ice” Foster vowed to never be in a relationship again after watching his ex-wife slowly die of cancer. That type of anguish was more than he could handle in one lifetime, and there’s no way anyone can change his mind.


Despite their determination never to fall in love again, Rebecca and Patrick can’t deny the connection between them. But when danger lurks around every corner, she knows there’s only one man she can trust to protect both her and her daughter. But who will protect her from a broken heart?
SEAL the Deal, a stand-alone novel, is book one in the new series, Alpha SEALs.


Excerpt from SEAL the Deal by Makenna Jameison:


“And what keeps you up at night?” he asked huskily, watching her blush again at the sexual undertones of his question.

“Work,” she finally replied, recovering, as she met his blue gaze.

He grinned at her, trying to put her more at ease. “You’re too easy to tease,” he finally admitted. It wasn’t like him to want to put anyone at ease, but something about this woman had him feeling possessive and protective at the same time. Not to mention incredibly, uncomfortably, aroused.

“It’s not nice to tease people,” Abby said innocently, and Rebecca and Patrick both burst into laughter.

“You’re not having any ice cream either,” Rebecca pointed out.

He shrugged, not really caring to explain that he was on a strict training regimen. “So Rebecca,” he said, enjoying the way the sound of her name felt on his lips, “do you and Abby frequent the playground often?”

“Yes!” Abby shouted.

Rebecca smiled at her daughter and looked back to him. “It’s pretty much our Sunday afternoon tradition when the weather is good.”

He considered that, wanting to see her again without knowing entirely why. “Maybe Logan and I will see you here next weekend?”

“I’d like that.”

He stared at her a moment longer then he should have and then stood. “Come on, buddy, let’s get going.” Logan jumped to his feet, and Patrick rested his hand on his son’s shoulder before meeting Rebecca’s eyes. “Stay safe,” he said, before turning to leave. He could feel her eyes watching him as they walked out the front door, and it took absolutely all of his strength not to look back.

BOOK REVIEW

4 STARS


I really enjoyed this suspenseful romance.  Rebecca and Patrick are likable characters who have met briefly in the past when both were happily married to other people.  When they meet again coincidentally, both of them are trying to get through dismal days and lonely nights because they have each lost cherished partners.

Rebecca’s young daughter is a funny, cutie-pie who often pops off at inopportune times.  I loved her spontaneity! Patrick’s son, likewise, is a sweet-tempered child who dotes on his daddy.

I loved the chemistry between Rebecca and Patrick and the fact that both are mature non-selfish adults drawn together but very concerned with how their actions could affect their youngsters.

The tension escalates as the stalker becomes more rash.  Patrick wants to protect Rebecca but in so doing he makes some poor choices and ends up with a mess he never anticipated. 

This is a stand-alone book that is also a fantastic kickoff to what I anticipate will be an exciting and fun series.

This book was given to me in exchange for my honest review.
