Mason Hall, Navy SEAL, knows all about difficult assignments, but his current mission is one for the record books. Not only must he find a wife—and get her pregnant—or forfeit the ranch his family has prized for generations, he must also convince his three brothers to marry, too—before the year is up.

4 stars for the romantic relationship. 1 star for something unfair and unjust. Anger overpowered my enjoyment.

My background is taxes and accounting which is probably why I had a huge problem. I’m sure others won’t be as bothered. I value authors trying new things and writing about new things. But this just hit the wrong button for me.

1. Zeke owns a ranch. He’s a loser. He’s been stripping the ranch for money -- selling appliances, furniture and even the fencing. It’s a

Mason Hall is a Navy SEAL who is giving up his Navel career to return home to Montana and claim his and brothers inheritance of the family's Crescent Hall Ranch but....there's a catch, he and his three brothers must turn their beloved rundown ranch into a productive running ranch, get married, and produce another heir within a year!! How are they going to accomplish this? By placing an ad looking for w

A Cora Seton novel is akin to taking that tall glass of lemonade after getting all that yard work done. Pure joy and satisfaction. I am already a great lover of CS' SEALS of Chance Creek series and when I spied this freebie in the Kobo store...well, I just couldn't resist.

The premise of this series is that Mason Hall and his three brothers(all in branches of the U.S. military) have been granted the chance by a great aunt to take back the family ranch, but under certain conditions. First, they a

I love mail order brides so when I came upon an E-mail order bride book, I had to get it. This was a new area of mail order brides for me and besides, who can resist a military man turn rancher who calls you honey and sweetheart? Not this chick, that's who!

I really enjoyed the beginning of this book when these two meet. The Skyping, phone calls and e-mails were some of my favorite moments between Mason and Regan. I loved their funny and playful side with another side o

I had a major problem with how Mason had to pay his uncle's debts, but nonetheless, I laughed several times while reading this erotic romance. It's a contemporary "mail-order-bride" trope played out via email, phoning, and Skype, from New York to Afghanistan and later in Montana, at The Crescent Hall Ranch. The main couple converse several times via social media before they meet in person.

I liked these lead characters and rooted for their happy ending. Hero (Lieutenant Commander Mason Hall) is a

Even knowing that this was going to be fairly straight-forward, it was an enjoyable read. A insta-match-made-in-heaven tale, but it had depth and reasonable complexity for a shorter story.

I'll probably read the rest at some point.

This book was a surprise for me.

So Mason and all his brothers have to married and have children because their crazy relative. Mason is very straight about what he wants including demanding the same for his brothers. I love how even angry sometimes with each other they are still close.

Mason and Regan starting to emailing each other and wow the chemistry btw them is the wow factor here. Despite their short time talking. Regan wants a baby and Mason too-yet she does not know if marrying would be go

I had never read a Cora Seton book until this one, and I'm glad this book found me through netgalley. From the title, I was expecting an old-fashioned sappy book (kind of like those old mail order bride westerns). But this book was nothing like that - in fact, it was a sassy contemporary love story with lots of heart, comedy, and heat.

I loved both of the main characters. Mason Hall is a Navy SEAL, who (along with his three brothers) gets a chance to take over his family's home, which had been l

This is the first book of a four book series involving four brothers, all in a different branch of the military and their return to their beloved family home in Montana, Crescent Hall, that has been in the Hall Family since the 1800s. After the sudden death of their father, when the young boys were still at home, the home by family tradition, went to their fathers brother, Ezekiel "Zeke" Hall. But he has now passed away, his son Darren does not want

Way way way to insta for my taste. But still love the premises and their relationship- there are some lovely moments
Just everything happened too fast. Blink of an eye, HEA. Literally. The book was too short so was their love story.
Smut was ok.
I did like the characters - and I like their values, sounds kinda odd when taken out of the context of the plot. So basically just take my word for it.
I am going to read the next book in the series... maybe it get better? But also I'd like to know

Professionally written, light read. Predictable. The naive business dealings drove me nuts. There's trust and responsibility, and there's fodder for People's Court.

No desire to read the rest of the series.

The Navy Seal's E Mail Order Bride by Cora Seton is a 2014 One Acre Press publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I confess up front that I love military heroes and cowboys better than any other romance hero. I really enjoyed The Cowboys of Chance Creek and am super excited to see this new series featuring Navy Seals.

Mason is ready to leave the military life and would love nothing more than to go home to his family ranch and spend the rest of his days relaxing and working. The only problem? His Aunt has given him an ultimatum! If Mason and his three brothers want the ranch left to them when she passes instead of his cousins, each has to marry and atleast Mason must have an heir.
Slightly pissed but determined to see it through, the ranch means more to him than anything, he enlists his brothers help and convi

This is such a great book. I think I've read it 4 times now. Cora Seton has a whole bunch of books in several series set in Chance Creek. Some of the heroes are soldiers, cowboys, ranchers, SEALs and various combinations of those. All the books are great. This time I re-read it because I was about to start A SEAL's Oath, which reminded me I had to finish this series. I love this book so much.
The start of this book is a crazy situation that means a family of brothers (all in different services of
I had high hopes for this book because the premise sounded great, but it was kind of boring. I really liked the beginning part especially where she wrote the letter in the beginning to reply for his Wife Wanted ad, but from there it went downhill. I may try to read about the other brothers and hope that the series gets better.

I loved the banter between the two MCs at the beginning of the book. The whole premise of an e-mail ordered bride was intriguing. The hero, Mason Hall, and his four brothers, are able to reclaim their family land only if they meet the requirements: get hitched and have a baby within the year. This is the first book in the series and follows the oldest brother, who puts a Wife Wanted ad for himself and his brothers online. That's where the fun starts. In a drunken moment, the heroine Regan Anders ...more

Wow! Absolutely Fabulous Book That I Highly Recommend!!

I downloaded this ebook today and read it in one sitting. I could not put it down and absolutely adored this book. What a wonderful love story.

Mason Hall is a Navy Seal and is heading home in a couple of weeks. He has the opportunity to reclaim his family's ranch which was taken away from his family when his father passed away. Mason's uncle was his father's business partner and wanted the whole shebang all to himself. The uncle has now pass
This had a quirky set-up, but no more so than you'd expect from a modern mail-order bride story. Thanks to a crazy old aunt, Mason (a soon-to-be ex-Navy SEAL) and his three younger brothers need to get married ASAP if they're going to keep the family ranch deep in cattle country, Montana. Baby-crazy Regan has just about given up on finding love in the Big Apple and has made an appointment with a turkey baster when she runs across a too-good-to-be-true ad on Facebook. While at first this might se ...more

Cute fast read. The story starts with an e-mail relationship when the heroine answers the hero's want ad for a bride while she is drunk. The series of emails and texts are fun and well done and you could see how the hero would want to pick the heroine as is bride. The hero needs a wife to inherit the family ranch and he takes her there to see how she likes it. The story moves along well and is pretty plausible on the developing relationship front. ...more

The review at the Smart Bitches Trashy books website convinced me.

"the premise is ridiculous. But the books OWNS it.".

And it's free!

The verdict. The plot IS ridiculous, esp the debt (WTH, man!). But it's cute, light, and melodrama-free. Just what I needed at the moment. I think I'm going to pick up a sequel the next time I want some cotton candy.

3.5 stars

Not a bad little story, which I got as a freebie off Amazon. It was an easy read, funny in places and can be read as a standalone, but as the series is about four brothers, I may read the other three at some point, see how they get on.

This was a fun read. I thought it was great in starting the series. I liked that it was a different take on mail order brides.

“Home,” Mason confirmed. “I got a letter from Great Aunt Heloise. Uncle Zeke passed away over the weekend without designating an heir. That means the ranch reverts back to her. She thinks we’ll do a better job running it than Darren will.” Darren, their first cousin, wasn’t known for his responsible behavior and he hated ranching. Mason, on the other hand, loved it. He had missed the ranch, the cattle, the Montana sky and his family’s home ever since they’d left it twelve years ago.” 1 likes
