***A brand new standalone in the Friendship, Texas series, crossing over into Susan Stoker's SEAL of Protection world.***

On a rare afternoon break between lunch and dinner, I stood in the back with Sammy and the guys, frying up the arancia balls for dinner.
“Sonny Conti comes to help with the ristorante and meets the femmina,” Sammy said, slapping me on the back.

A sweet Italian romance

I’m so glad that Sonny got a story! I was trying to figure out what kind of woman would be able to handle him and Virginia doesn’t disappoint. I loved seeing him fall for her from the first moment. Such a sweet story.
Side note: I now want to go to Italy. AND I want to punch Rick in the face!
Really hard read. Not expecting it to be told from the male POV

Meeting Virginia by Magan Vernon a fate altering Five-Star read. This is a stand-alone book that does from part three of the Friendship Texas series so you can read it as a series, but you don’t have to as the other characters only pop up, they don’t interconnect.
This book focuses on Sonny a guy who is described as speaking perfect Italian and looks like he was cast in the godfather but sounds like Cotton-Eyed Joe, he’s described as this as his parents are Sicilian and he was born and raised in

I received a free ARC of this book and am voluntarily writing an honest review.

Meet Italian from Friendship, Texas who speak the Italian language fluently with a Southern drawl. As the son of Sicilian parents, it falls on Sonny to head to Sicily to help his cousin and his cousin's pregnant wife run their restaurant. Sonny meets Virginia one night at a dance club. She is different from any girl Sonny has ever met. As they spend time together neither expects anything other than a summe

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

Now here is a story in Susan Stoker's Kindle World that is a bit different...amusing, fun, charming, full of surprises and a few of our favorite SEALS...oh and Italians! I LOVED how this crossover came together! It had just the right amount of action and lots of sizzling romance and fun. This is my first story by  Magan Vernon and I was NOT unhappy with it at all. In fact, I want to go back and check out her other books.

I found her writing to be fun and unique.

Every trip we take with the Conti family and Friendship, Texas is memorable. It is especially so when we get to see Mr Playboy himself get dethroned by a beautiful, intelligent artist who doesn’t take or fall for his nonsense. As they get closer and challenges arise it’s time for Sonny to put up or shut it down. This trip to Palermo with his family is not what he planned and it may change his future if he is ready to man up.

Great story and the characters from Friendship never fail to keep us en

My beautiful Matthew, and lovely Caroline, always strong, always bound together, who wouldn't be peaceful with that marvelous man and sailor? Oh my God he said to a stranger he is a seal??? Wow he has changed so much with that woman, and look he is changing a stranger guy with just a talk, but what can you expect if not that, seals in novels like in real life are really such great examples for everyone!! Poor Sonny he didn't see it coming, neither for Matthew or Virginia, and as Caroline she has ...more

If you are looking for your Special Forces guy you will not find him in this book instead you will find Sonny, a pleasant young man helping his cousin run his restaurant in Sicily.
Virginia is an art student whose friends made her go to the club. From the moment Sonny sees Virginia he knows she is the one.

This was a short and sweet book. The story had everything it need and it left me satisfied.

** I received this book in exchange for an honest review **

Meeting Virginia by Magan Vernon.....What a fun addition to the Susan Stoker Kindle World. This was a fun sweet book about family and love. Sonny is a playboy and meets the love of his life when Virginia walks into a club and doesn't give Sonny the time of day. I loved watching story be told between Sonny and Virginia. I voluntarily reviewed an adv readers copy of this book. ...more

I really enjoyed this story. This is the first story I read this time in Susan Stoker World, I am new to this author, but will be looking into her other stories.

This is a story of a boy who meets a girl and their happily ever after.

Wolf and Caroline join this story.

Good story!

This was a well written quick read. It brushed up against the original series. But really stands in its own. It has nice characters that grow on you. Nice storyline.

Magan Vernon has been living off of reader tears since she wrote her first short story in 2004. She now spends her time killing off fictional characters, pretending to plot while she really just watches Netflix, and she tries to do this all while her two young children run amok around her Texas ranch.

You can stalk her online at all of these fun and happy places.
