Book Review - Hot Seal Bride by Lynn Raye Harris

ABOUT THE BOOK


A new standalone romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Lynn Raye Harris. Sexy, action-packed, and thrilling!

Sold to the highest bidder…

For the past fourteen years, Princess Antonella Rossi has been a virtual prisoner. She has no friends, no fun, and she’s not allowed to leave her aunt and uncle’s Virginia compound without an escort. 

But today is her wedding day. A rich sheikh has bought her virginity, and with it her freedom. Any hope of independence Ella’s ever cherished will disappear the instant she faces him across the altar. With time running out and the wedding party gathering, Ella seizes the opportunity to run as far and fast as she can.

Navy SEAL Cash “Money” McQuaid isn’t looking for trouble, but trouble always seems to find him. This time trouble is five foot four and wearing a wedding dress. Rescuing a runaway princess has consequences though, and with his face plastered on the evening news and his career on the line, he realizes there’s only one way out of this mess—he has to marry her!

It’s a marriage in name only, just until he can clear his name and win Ella the freedom she seeks. But shacking up with a gorgeous virgin isn’t as easy as it seems, especially when the sparks snapping between them are hotter and more dangerous than anything Cash has ever experienced. By the time he realizes it’s too late to resist his virgin bride, an unseen enemy is intent on taking her away from him. 

Cash is gonna need all his skills—and his friends on the Hostile Operations Team—in order to rescue his princess bride and give her the happily-ever-after she deserves. 

The Hostile Operations Team is a covert military Black Ops unit. Their motto is Where None Dare. H.O.T. operators come from all branches of the military. The only criteria for membership: they must be the best of the best!

REVIEW

Every time review I do for Lynn Raye Harris's books I feel like I say this but I have no idea how she comes-up with so many new and unique stories for these guys and have them not feel contrived.  This time it is Cash's chance to fall.  This time it is for a virgin princess who has literally been held prisoner by her Aunt and Uncle and is a run away bride from an arranged marriage.  Sound a bit implausible?  Somehow Harris makes this feel real and actually draws attention to human trafficking that actually does occur and how it can happen right under our noses.  The chemistry between the two is high and the story flows easily.  It was great seeing so much of Gina and Jack again too, but doesn't feel like a forced cameo that would make a new reader feel left out.  This was another great story by Lynn and I recommend for any fans of her books or stories with alpha military men.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
