Synopsis (from Publisher Website) Navy SEAL Caleb Delaude had a less-than-ideal childhood. His biological father abandoned his family at Caleb's birth and left them to a life of poverty, refusing to help even as his mother lay dying. So when he is assigned to protect the powerful senator who he suspects is his father, his vicious grudge turns into a strong urge for revenge. But then he meets biology professor Emmie Caddington, a close friend of the senator's daughter. He thinks he'll use her to spring the secret of his illegitimate birth on the senator's unsuspecting family, but his interest in Emmie begins to get complicated. He's a SEAL 24/7, and that doesn't leave much time for women or love. Her fascination with him finally makes him feel good about himself, but when the truth finally comes out, will their budding relationship be nothing more than a means to revenge... or is she the key to his salvation?

Review
Well, first off who can resist a Navy SEAL? This was a cute romance and very enjoyable. I thought that the plot was very unique. and the story really caught my attention. The scenes between Caleb and Emmie was definitely not your usual romance novel interaction, but I did think that they played well. I did seem a bit jarring to have Caleb so focused on revenge at the beginning, although I found it comical how easily he lost his focus on revenge once he met Emmie. There were a few spots that I thought were a little slow, but for the most part the book moved right along. I read it in a day or so, and had no problem 'sticking with' my reading. it's definitely a good book to curl up with or to just escape the day to day with. I don't think you'd be disappointed in picking this one up. Overall I thought this book was really fun and one that I'd definitely recommend. Thanks to Sourcebooks Casablanca and the author for giving me the opportunity to read and review their book. Purchase from Sourcebooks Casablanca Glitter Text Generator Digg!

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
