The Navy SEAL's E-Mail Order Bride by Cora Seton: Spotlight and Excerpt


The Navy SEAL’s E-Mail Order Bride

by Cora Seton





Mason Hall, Navy SEAL, has fought insurgents and terrorists, but his current mission is one for the records. Not only must he find a wife—and get her pregnant—or forfeit the ranch his family has prized for over a hundred years, he also must convince his three brothers to marry, too—before the year is up. Who knew one city girl and three wayward brothers could put up such a fight?






She took a breath, because the first question was one that was very near and dear to her heart. Now she would learn that Mason was utterly wrong for her—just like all the men she’d dated in the city. Like them he’d be far too concerned with his own comfort to want to saddle himself with offspring. She held the paper up. “There are ten of them. The first one is: how many children do you want to have?”


Mason grinned. “Lots of them. As soon as possible. Like… now.”


Regan tuned out the rest of his words. Lots of them? As soon as possible? No man in her acquaintance had ever said such a thing. She felt hot and prickly all of a sudden as desire swept through her so strong it took her breath away. This handsome, sexy, mouth-watering man wanted to have children? Lots of them? And here she was just weeks away from getting it on with a turkey baster?


“Wh…what?” she made herself say, aware she’d missed several sentences.


“I said, that’s my knee-jerk reaction. When I think it through, though, several things factor in.”


“Like what?” She cleared her throat. She could hardly speak.


“Like the health of my wife, for one thing. Things can go wrong in pregnancies. I don’t want my wife to ever be put in danger. The other factor is what we can afford. I don’t think you need to be wealthy to have kids, but I want to be able to provide for them.”


Regan swallowed past a sudden lump in her throat. These were the answers she’d always wanted to hear from a man. And now it was too late. Almost.


“I’m clear that I want children,” he finished up. “And I want to start right away. How about you?”


“Me?” Darn it—she’d practically squeaked.


“Is that a deal-breaker?”


“Um… no.”


He cocked his head. “No, what?”


“No… I want kids. Right away. In fact… I’m kind of in a hurry.” Her voice trailed off because all she could think about was her artificial insemination appointment.


He leaned on his elbows, coming closer to the screen. “Really.”


Was it her imagination or had her answer interested him? Really interested him. She tingled under his suddenly intense gaze. “Really. I mean… I just didn’t think I’d have a husband anytime soon. To do it that way.” She wasn’t making any sense and she knew it.


Mason didn’t seem to mind. “You’re talking to a potential husband.” Another grin.


“I’m not one of your candidates, you know.” Her voice had gone wobbly and she was unable to look away from him.


He met her gaze. “Yeah, you are.”
