Lots of spice, a good short story about a hard-edged Navy SEAL and the woman he secretly loves, who is definitely off limits!

Macey must rescue Emerson from kidnappers, the heat is rising between them, but Macey's CO is Em's godfather! With the rescue over, Em is kept in hiding until those behind the kidnapping are found. Unfortunately, the kidnappers had an inside mole and got to them first! Can Macey keep them safe? Will they live long enough for their happy ending?

Although the story is about M

I was really glad Macey got a story of his own, but I was sad it was so short. We got a narrow point of view of this character. I would have hoped it would have been something I could really sink my teeth into, but enjoyed it anyway.

I always really liked Macey and his personality, now couple that with a spunk like Em and you have a very good story. I just wish this was a full novel, but we got a peek into Macey's life and what he's like between the sheets. ;) Wish the story had an epilogue, though.

I wish Macey would have gotten a full length novel.

Atlanta heat is Maceys story. After two years which seems to be the ongoing time to fight your attraction in this series, Emerson is taken by kidnappers. He and Nathan come to the rescue and of course Em qnd Macey are going to be hiding away waiting out the bad guy.

This one was not bad. But it wasn't great. Its spicy, short, and well there is a big snake. Emerson was a struggle for me as a character. She just was irritating and not 100 percent sure why. All in all decent read though.
Read in TAKEN.
Macey and Emerson worked well as a couple.
Likeable plot with good characters. Had more story and less sex than previous books which I appreciated.
Sorry about Drack though, how sad.
Good story that obviously feeds on from previous books.
I had read Nathan’s story before this so have definitely read these out of order.
Have read and reviewed these books long ago, enjoyable rereading them.

Sexy! Each book is following a formula but Lora Leigh writes each character so uniquely they are all very entertaining and HOT HOT HOT with intriguing stories that have you rooting for all the MC's all the way through, plus the stories build on each other and that just makes them even more engaging.

Enjoyed this book

This is a short book but, no less good. I like LoraLeigh's book especially the Navy Seals, the black ops and the related stories. I wish this book was longer...I want to hear more about all of their adventures.

4.5 Stars. I’ve loved Macey since he showed up in the earlier Tempting Seals series. I also like Emerson. Just too short.

Nice quick read with action and sexual tension between Emmerson & Macey. I thought it was pretty interesting that there was some POV from Drack the anaconda. ...more

A seal and a goddaughter

One of favorite authors, I sometimes forget about! This story was pretty quick read. Enmerson was kidnapped and Macy needs to save her.

This is the 6th installation of Lora Leigh’s Tempting SEALs series.

This short and sexy read by Lora Leigh is hot, hot, hot. She is so great at creating lasting chemistry between Emerson Delaney and Mason ‘Macey’ March.

Macey is a Navy SEAL, and Emerson has spent her entire life around them. Her parents are both in the service and her godfather is Macey’s Admiral. Macey believes that the Admiral will have his blood if he messes with Emerson, but he just can’t seem to help himself.

Macey is a self-p

I reviewed this book as part of the Taken anthology.

Seriously, how can you not love a self-proclaimed boob man? Especially when said love gets Macey busted down a rank when his commanding officer catches him in a compromising position with Em, the Admiral’s goddaughter. This a great read featuring a hot as sin Navy SEAL, a kidnap and rescue situation, an anaconda (and no, that’s not a euphemism, I mean an actual snake), and a safe house that might have a top-notch security system that apparently

Another good book from Lora Leigh. I enjoy reading this series. Even though these books are a little short, I still enjoy reading about each Seal member and finding how they find love.

In this book Macey, a Navy Seal, has to come to terms about how he feels for Emerson Delaney, the goddaughter to his commander. He's always known she's off limits to him, but almost loosing her has changed that. After almost losing her and tasting her, he knows he'll never get enough. Now on lockdown together and i

Wow! This book ended like I didn't think it would. It was a short little book. At first I thought it was gonna be a military Seal book where they are trying to protect the admirals god-daughter. Thats what it was at first, but it turned into a WAY different story! Ill leave it at that. And I am surprised that I didnt have a dream about a snake last night cause there was an anaconda in the story. I HATE SNAKES!
2 ½ stars – Romantic Suspense

A very short novella. It's one of the very few books by Ms Leigh that I could not stand. I didn't like either leading characters and I probably suffer from cabin fever, too. 'Cause I wanted to murder them :)

I can't really pinpoint what exactly I found wrong. I really disliked it and skipped-read.

Macey was a fav of mine throughout the series! to say I was excited about this story is a vast understatement!! It did not disappoint! Super steamy and a great story to boot! I love a bossy Alpha male!

Final book in the series... I would love to read one more where every character returns and we get updates on weddings, families, babies, etc.... A short story would be the icing on the cake !!!!

This is another one I read as part of an anthology and have since reread many times. I love Lora's novellas so much! There is just something about these men that I can't get enough of. And Mace, oh man, he's a hottie! ;)

No surprise that I really liked this book! Lora Leigh is an awesome writer and even though this was a short story she delivered on a good story with steamy scenes and just enough sexual tension to make this book awesome!
Elizabeth Gianquinto

This story was okay. There wasn't a lot of lead up to the kidnapping. It just felt rushed and unorganized. In the book dangerous games Macey is 6'6" and here he is 6'4 or 6'5. Felt like there was a lot missing in the storyline.

Tempted is correct.

Lora Leigh is one of my absolute favorite authors. Her stories suck you in until you're not sure what just happened and then bam you're hooked. You can't wait for your next fix.
