this is a light "meh" read. The intimacy was glossed over and there were odd time jumps I didn't like.

Story - 2
narrator 2

the narrator got me through the story but her voices were ugh. our guys didn't sound like cheerleaders but they didn't sound like guys. they sounded like a girl trying to sound like a guy, almost comedic

This book just didn't resonate with me. I wouldn't quite say that it's a bad book because I'm sure some people would think it was great, but I couldn't connect with it. The characters didn't feel real and their actions rarely made sense. And I must say that this is the first romance novel I've ever read where I was screaming "please don't describe the sex scene, please don't describe the sex scene" over and over in my head. Despite the fact that Tom was an uber in-shape ex-Navy SEAL and Caitlin ...more

Very good book. Tom was injured in an explosion and lost the hearing in one ear. This brought an end to his career as an active SEAL. Now he is working as an instructor, training new recruits. He is having a hard time adjusting to the loss, as he felt that being a SEAL was what and who he was. His niece Gabby is about the only thing that cheers him up. When he visits her school, he meets her teacher and finds something else that makes him happy. Caitlin knows how he feels, since she lost her own ...more

Soraya Lane excels at writing heart-wrenchingly emotional stories that resonate with readers everywhere and linger in the mind long after the last page is turned. Her last book for Harlequin Romance, The Navy SEAL’s Bride, is a spellbinding tale of redemption, renewal, second chances and the power of love readers will simply adore!

Former Navy SEAL Tom Cartwright is looking forward to spending the next couple of weeks looking after his gorgeous niece. Tom hopes that dedicating his time to taking

Earlier this year I discovered Ms. Lane’s books when I read Back in the Soldiers’ Arms. It even inspired my post about cheating heroes, and overall I thought it was a great story. It takes a good author to make me enjoy a Romance with a cheating hero and I really enjoyed that book.

I was anxiously anticipating The Navy SEAL’s Bride, not only because I like Ms. Lane’s books, but also because the hero played a minor role in Back in the Soldier’s Arms. U

As I began this novel, I really liked the author's voice and the plot. The brave, rippling SEAL who had a soft spot for his niece....oooh make my heart bleed. I've had a close connection with military forces all my life, so I understand the environment, the hardship and the mental anguish associated with injury and loss of direction. The Navy SEAL's Bride had the potential to be outstanding, but I think it slipped my radar with too much "inner voice talk" and the weakness portrayed in the hero. ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed The Navy SEAL's Bride. Ms. Lane has shared with us a beautiful story About 2 people who have been through their own personal war and come away scarred. Caitlin has been hurt by both her father and an abusive boyfriend. She doesn't trust men easily. Tom has been injured in battle and is coming to grips with his change in career. Neither is looking for love. I thought hat Tom and Caitlin were cute together. I was so rooting for both of them. I love stories where two troubled p ...more

wasn't sure if I would be able to finish this book the same day I started it but I did. I Love Soraya's stories they are wonderful and they don't seem forced like some stories I have read, they are not based on sex but on the actual love
