SEAL Romance Military Romance Suspense Romance


Adrenaline junkie and Navy SEAL Alex Kowicki is one of four bachelor SEALs trying to navigate his successful military career while achieving his goals as a first class connois- seur of beautiful women. He isn’t ready to jump back into anything but his free falls, HA- LO drops or his missions overseas. He trusts his buddies to fix him up with another blind date that won’t be as dangerous as his last ones.

But Sydney Robinson has other plans. A beach volleyball player who can spike better than most men, and block with explosive speed to defend her side of the net, she exe- cutes a series of events to include stalking the handsome SEAL all the way to Sonoma County wine country, and delivering his carcass to her bed. Having achieved her first goal, she sets about to become a pro AVP player.

When duty calls and Alex is pulled back to Iraq to complete a failed mission, neither ex- pects to find that the real danger is lurking very much close to home. But this fight might cost one of them their lives.
