Emma’s a widow who had a crush on Cort’s brother. Cort finds out she’s in trouble and once a SEAL always a SEAL. I love how the romance is left until the end. Kylie gives us something to look forward to and ignites our imagination to continue from where the story ends.
Seaman Barry Ballantine goes home to Sweetness, Georgia. What happened to his town reminds me of what happened to New England this summer. Barry then meets a jogger, Lora Jensen, on his way into town. We learn that they knew each other in high school.
I applaud Stephanie for making our hero less than perfect – you don’t see many heroes like Barry in our romance novels (at least the ones I have read). Lora is a physical therapist – does this happen to be coincidence? Maybe. Lora helps him out and they are able to become friends.
We found that Barry is in town to do something for a friend. Lora is starting to think of him as more than a friend. As the saying goes “home is where the heart is.”
Nick DeMarco is at his mother’s funeral. He meets a friend that he hasn’t seen in quite some time, Robby Girardi. Sarah Decker is someone who Nick once cared about. She has a connection to what happened on September 11.
Nick used those events to sign up at the local recruitment office. Nick finds that reminiscing can be painful but Sarah brings a peace-offering. They also renew the love that they used to feel for one another.
Jami’s story is about second chances at love. It’s a great story to start the anthology with.
This is an anthology of stories that is dedicated to our Navy SEALs. All sale proceeds of this book go to the non-profit foundation the Veterans Research Corporation. I loved how they used an actual Navy SEAL for the cover.
I usually skip reading the forward and go right to the story but not this time (and I’m glad I didn’t). Robyn Carr gives a tribute to our unsung heroes. Please make sure that you don’t miss this fitting tribute. This anthology is a great way to read authors you never may have before.
Please make sure to read all the way to the end. You will learn some things about the authors that you may not have known before. After that is information on the Veterans Research Corporation. You may want to even check out their website http://www.veteransresearchcorp.org/.
You will not be disappointed by adding this anthology to your collection. I give “SEAL of My Dreams” 4 1/2 stars. If you check back to my site, I will be giving reviews of each individual story. I will get them completed by the end of this week (if not before).
