Navy SEALs are the subject of both fantasy and desire for readers. In these 18 stories by authors including Cindy Gerard, Kylie Brant, Leslie Kelly and Roxanne St. Claire, the mystique surrounding these warriors is the basis for vignettes of love and passion and, above all, honor. Readers will love these stories. In addition, all proceeds from this book will go to the Veterans Research Corporation, so these should be read with a warm glow. It’s a great read and a good cause all in one.
