A 2 in 1 deal. Part of the Tall, Dark and Dangerous series by Suzanne Brockmann. The Admiral's Bride was a good addition to the series but I've never been a fan of the May to December romances. However, it was done in a way that made it an enjoyable read for me. The Admiral is Jake Robinson who is ready to get out in the field in a covert op to locate dangerous canisters filled with deadly toxins. The bride is Zoe Lange, a much younger doctor who is an expert in the area of bio-chemicals weapons ...more
Opening Line: "Sergeant Mathew lange had been left to die."
I’m just loving this fun, sexy and exciting series, giving us larger then life Navy SEAL heroes, capable of anything it seems except falling in love easily. Here we get books 7 & 8 from Brockmann’s Tall Dark and Dangerous series (being re-released as 2-in1’s with way better covers) And I would have to say that these two particular stories are my favourites so far.

Using proper military jargon Brockmann gives us delicious alpha-male he
Two-haiku review:

Two more of series
A little different from rest
But enjoyable

Older SEAL stories
Technology now isn't
Like it used to be
Picked this up at random from a book sale. Lol I can see why someone gave it up. I got bored with the first book and skipped straight over to the second one. It was interesting, but so full of cheesy cliche's I had to laugh more than a few times. I liked Becca, I thought she was a fairly good heroine and I also liked Mitch, but the amnesia storyline felt... I don't know, thin? There's so little info about his mission and there's suspense (the beginning is pretty solid IMO), that I went along for ...more
The Admiral's Bride Suzanne Brockman has a great series going. This book is about Jake, an Admiral, and Zoe, a scientist. They are put together to stop a nut job from blowing up a devise and wrecking havoc. Jake is older and some doubt if he can get the job done. He is also tragically widowed and has closed up that part of himself. Zoe is much younger, but very mature. I usually don't like the heroine to be so much younger than the hero, but Jake and Zoe really make it work and they are perfect ...more
This book contains the stories The Admiral's Bride and Identity: Unknown.

I really enjoyed The Admiral's Bride. It's a fun and silly story about an older man and a younger woman. I thought it was so funny everytime the admiral (Jake) focused on the age difference because it clearly wasn't going to make a difference in the end. Jake is a really great character because he is kind of a super hero but he thinks of himself as just another guy. Zoe is a great heroine because she is smart and tough. Sh
I really love this series. I'd give 5 stars to both stories, The Admiral's Bride and Identity: Unknown.
The Admiral's Bride deals with Admiral Jake Robinson, SEAL and leader of a team doing black/gray ops. He decides to go undercover to recover stolen nerve gas with an young doctor, an expert on biological weapons, Zoe Lange. She's 29 and he's in his early 50s and a widower. I wondered how I was going to feel about an "older" MC, SB made him into one sexy man and it was easy to see them falling
The Admiral's Bride and Identity: Unknown

O.k. so while I try and appreciate what Jake Robinson went through (amazing man/character etc) I struggled a little with this one. He is the same age as her father. He might be totally hot, in shape, wonderful, yada yada but I couldn't help but think how sad it would be for her to have such a short time with him (and he w/her and their kids) and then she's putting both her husband and her father in the same old folks home. Sorry, while it was well written

I give the Admiral's Bride 5 stars, and Identity Unknown 4. The two packaged together, books written 11-12 years ago, are still a hot combo and enjoyable.

Identity Unknown, where SEAL Mitchell Shaw is dropped in a homeless Mission shelter after a gunshot wound to the head, is woven as a good thriller. For those who like military romance, it doesn't disappoint. As he remembers events, most of them horrible details of his past life, I found it believable he does not know if he is a good guy or a b

One of her best military reads

Loved the continued Jake Robinson story line and how Suzanne blends the characters together to flow thru her books. The sex, romance and suspense are always superb!

#7-8 of Tall, Dark & Dangerous series! #7 is The Admiral's Bride & #8 is Identity, Unknown

My favorite military series so far!! I read these books so fast and had to keep going to the book store to buy the next one because I just couldn't wait to read it. Lots of suspense and romance!
Its been a long while since I've picked up a book by Suzanne Brockmann...and now I'll be going back to retrieve other books in this "Tall, Dark and...." series...LOVE books about Navy Seals...Love mixing danger and romance....and being rescued...YUMM... A great read...
I picked this up at the library with no real expectations and really enjoyed it. The storyline and the characters kept me enthralled in the book. Great read. I will be looking for more of Suzanne Brockman.
I thought that this would be just a sexy read. Talk about a surprise. I really enjoyed both of these books and will purchase more of her books in the future
This ending dissappointed me. Felt very anti-climactic after everything the MC's had been thru. Still hasnt turned me off Brockmann or her SEALs series tho.
Re-read of two Brockmann's Navy SEALs books. Admiral's Bride is the very first book I read of Brockmann's I've been hooked since.
Abby Fick
Loved this one, and the entire series is great summer reading. But who am I kidding - I'd read these anytime of year!
Liz Mulherin
