The first in a new romantic suspense series featuring the rugged special ops unit tucked away in Alaska's Grizzly Harbor from USA Today bestselling author Megan Crane.
The last thing Blue Hendricks needs six months into his uneasy reentry into civilian life is trouble in the form of his old friend's kid sister, all grown up and smack in the middle of a dangerous murder investigation. But he didn't become a SEAL to turn his back on the hard stuff, and he can't bring himself to ignore Everly's call for help--no matter how much he knows he's not fit to be around the soft, vibrant woman she's become. Not after the things he's done.
Everly Campbell is desperate. When her roommate is murdered and the body vanishes, Everly fears she might be next. With no one to believe her, Everly runs to a remote Alaskan town to find a man she only vaguely remembers and his crew of ex-military brothers who could be her only hope. Blue wants to keep things all business but Everly isn't a little girl anymore and the commanding former SEAL is more temptation than she can resist.
As the men on Everly's trail draw closer, Blue will do anything to protect the woman he's starting to think of as his...
SEAL’s Honor by Megan Crane is the first novel in the romantic suspense series, Alaska Force. The promise of military men, an Alaskan setting and some romantic suspense had me diving into this SEAL’s Honor. The tale that unfolded offered romance, humor, character growth and plenty of suspense. It left me eager for more stories about the men who make up the special ops unit known as Alaska Force.
Coffee Dates with SEAL’s Honor
- First Date: Our date begins with SEAL, Blue Hendricks. He has left the SEALs, but isn’t ready to return to civilian life. Which is why he is sitting in a small bar in the town of Grizzly Harbor looking for an elusive group known as Alaskan Force. It’s here he meets Isaac their leader.. An elite ops group that contracts for special projects. I am dying to know more, but our story jumps to their base set in the mountains above Grizzly Harbor as he greets a somewhat shaken, Everly Campbell. Everly has spent the past week traveling to Alaska, via a rental hoping to find her childhood neighbor Blue. Apparently, she witnessed her roommate’s murder, and some goons are following her. The cops think she is nuttier than the Mad Hatter. From their first meeting, and his denial I find myself curious and need to know more.
- Second Date: Despite wanting to put her back in her car and send her on her merry way, Blue recognizes true fear and believes Everly’s story. Soon the two are flying to Chicago. The cops still aren’t buying Everly’s story. Her roommate has posted vague messages on social media and even taken a sabbatical from work, but Blue and Everly aren’t convinced. The suspense angle built slowly allowing us a chance to get to know Blue and Everly. The two have sizzling chemistry although Blue has some serious issues and walls established. I loved seeing Everly chip away at them. When these two came together it melted by Kindle. However, pillow talk was cut short by some intense action. Once the suspense kicked into gear, the pacing amped up and I slip into the story. I ended up finishing it in a single sitting.
- Third Date: Family, near death, and goodbyes. The suspense thread was an interesting one that came to a climactic finish almost as quickly as it started. I for one didn’t see the outcome coming. Crane then turns her attention to the couple, Everly finds herself and Blue goes through some painful growth, healing and life altering perspectives before our story ended. I closed the book with a smile but also eager to know more about the men in this special ops unit.
A fun start to the Alaska Force series, SEAL’s Honor offered depth, action, heart and characters you’ll want to root for.A missing friend, an old childhood neighbor, a cry for help, and a sexy SEAL await you in SEAL's Honor by Megan Crane. #romanticsuspense #romance #NewRelease Click To Tweet
