Securing Jane: A SEAL of Protection; Legacy Series #6.5
(A novella within a series)
Publication Date: February 9, 2021
Genre/Tropes: Military/Contemporary Romance
Author: Susan Stoker
I love Susan’s action and adventure novels, and this novella certainly contained heart racing moments, but what I loved even more than that was the comfortable moments in between. This relationship was about connecting on a deeper level beyond just the hot times. I really, really enjoyed this book!
Storm North and Jane Hamilton are both seasoned. While Storm had never been married, aside married to his job, Jane is once divorced and has a grown daughter. They both love their jobs and aren’t really looking to settle down, but when Storm finally notices Jane, like really notices her beyond just as another woman on base and as the mail carrier who delivers his mail, he is certainly interested.
It doesn’t take long for Storm to decide he would like to take Jane on a date, again, he’s older and I like that he doesn’t play games. I also respect that even though Jane has had a crush on Storm for quite a while, she doesn’t beat around the bush when it comes to letting him know that she is interested.
I don’t want to give away the suspense leading up to their date, but once these two get together, I absolutely loved that Stoker included having them spend time snuggling, deeply respecting that not only were they just a bit older, but that they both had high pressure jobs and might be a little tired at the end of the day. I totally understood that. Yes, Susan had seriously smexy times included, but I LOVED the realism in this book too!
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Susan Stoker comes a new story in her SEAL of Protection: Legacy Series…
Over the years, Storm North has witnessed two teams of Navy SEALs under his command find true love. He doesn’t expect the same for himself. He’s too old. Too jaded. Too set in his ways. Until a woman who’s been right in front of him for years manages to impress Storm in a way very few women—or men—ever have.
Jane Hamilton knows it’s ridiculous to have a crush on the charismatic and handsome admiral. She’s the divorced mother of a twenty-six-year-old daughter. Too old for crushes. Too old for a lot of things. There’s no chance she’ll ever catch the eye of a man like Storm North.
Until someone delivers a bomb to the base.
As the civilian contractor in charge of the mail room, Jane finds herself in the direct line of fire, enduring a series of events that leads to a budding relationship with the very man she’s been longing for. She couldn’t be happier, and Storm feels the same.
The only one unhappy, in fact, is the thwarted bomber. Unhappy enough to do something drastic. Now Storm and Jane have to work together to save innocent sailors—and themselves—from an explosive situation threatening their happily ever after.
**Securing Jane is the 7th and final book in the SEAL of Protection: Legacy Series and a part of the 1001 Dark Nights collection. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
