Foreclosure looms for Cory Rigatero as she fights to keep her rustic resort near Mt. St. Helens afloat after her brother deserted her to join the SEAL Teams. Cory's whole world dives into a tailspin when Sean MacKay shows up at her resort with the news of her brother's death and the wild suspicion her brother may have sent her traitorous classified documents. No way will Cory trust MacKay -- the man who once seduced her and then vanished into the night without a trace.
We have ourselves a hero for the ages: tough because he had to be in order to survive a childhood riddled with abuse and neglect. He's handsome as sin—of course—and resourceful as all good SEALS need to be. Then there's the heroine whom we all want to head the list of Best Pals Forever: loyal, courageous and devoted to the family of her heart. And, last but not least, a small town with all the mandatory “joys”: bullies, bimbos, and bad guys.
I picked up The Angel and the SEAL, thinking I'd read the first 100 pages before going to bed. Guess what? I could not put this one down. It's a must read for those into military men, gutsy women and the necessary terrorist, foreign and domestic.
On a scale of 1-5, The Angel and the SEAL deserves a 5.
