I’ve read a few Dale Mayer novels, across a number of her series, and find it to be a bit of hit or miss. Some of the author’s books I have really enjoyed, others I find myself disinterested in. It is possible I would have a better time if I were to read each series in order, but most of the books work perfectly fine as standalone novels. Due to this, I think it’s just a reflection of Dale Mayer as a writer – sometimes the books will hit the mark, other times I will be left feeling cheated. With ...more

Another book from Dale Mayer that I love.
This one is packed with mystery from beginning till the end. Stalker, murder, break and entering, yes this book keeps me on my toes all the time. I can't stop reading it, wondering who's the bad guy, are those cases connected, will they captured the culprit and I keep suspecting everyone. The actions is not as much as I expect it to be (well who doesn't want to see those hot military men in actions?), but those mysteries and twist totally make up for it.

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

A kick-a** female detective and a sexy, protective SEAL..oh yea, I was so HAPPY with this newest romance by Dale Mayer! This was a bit different than the traditional hero coming to damsel in distress rescue story. Instead we get a total kick butt detective who is investigating a murder and one of her suspects is a irresistible SEAL. I devoured this book! Exciting, sexy, full of suspense that keeps the adrenaline pumping, and plenty of red hot chemistry, there wa

Macklin (SEALs of Honor #14) is an entertaining and engaging read. A drama filled romance that also offers mystery, suspense and humor. This is a well written book that has an interesting plot. These characters are complex and have good chemistry. I'm posting a voluntary review after reading an advance copy of this book.
4.5 What our Seal taken down to the police station? Stalkers? Want answers, read Macklin! A fast engrossing read! I enjoy all the Seals but this one took it a step further into real life. I asked for an Arc and voluntarily reviewed this book because I want to share about authors I enjoy.

A good addition to SEALs of Honor series, Macklin story was high octave from the start. He was a murder suspect, a murder of his ex that never wanted to accept the relationship had ended. Alex, the new detective in charge of the case, was a fair, smart, and strong woman. Alex was cleared quite early, and together the tried to find the real killer.

Alex was a swoon worthy character. He’s gorgeous and a badass, yet he’s nervous in starting a new relationship with the good detective. He’s also deter

Macklin is a funny, gripping, page turning book that provides genuine entertainment and a twisted, interesting plot. I couldn’t put it down until the last page!
Being a military novel, the protagonists are Navy Seals, with the obvious alpha personality. However, the character that stands out is an intelligent, witty, independent, ordinary woman.
Once again, Dale Mayer succeeded at creating a book that is different from the others in the series. Although with the same group of characters, Macklin i

I am enjoying this series! The heroines are all strong, independent and self-providing women. The heroes are all former SEALS who is involve who have been recruited to a new organization made up of former Seals. The stories always have an interesting mystery that the SEALs help resolve.

Macklin, a SEAL, has avoided the dating scene entirely since his last relationship ended badly, and that woman, Marsha, refused to accept that. She's made his life miserable since then with her actions, and though Macklin wanted her to leave him alone, he never wished her dead. The cops suspect him, of course, and as he knows he's innocent, he vows to find the real killer.

Alex, the new Coronado detective, is determined to find justice for the victim and prove her worth to her bosses. She has her

Another keeper in the SEAL’s of Honor series and this time it’s Macklin and the new detective, Alex. They meet when Macklin is the prime suspect in the murder of his stalker, Marsha, who stalked him for years. While proving his innocence he wants to get to know the detective more but he’s one of her suspects and she can’t get involved with him. But that doesn’t stop him as he figures out she is a keeper.
A great great read with a mystery that will have you guessing till the end as the clues come

I really liked Macklin, he came across as more laid back not quite so full on alpha male as most of the guys in the team do. Alex is strong, sassy and very independent and trying hard to prove herself in her new job with very little help or input from her colleagues. With a murder and several unexplained break ins she could use a break herself, now she has to question a friend of a friend. The plot is quite good and I enjoyed the build up in suspense to finding out not only the murderer but who ...more

This is the 14th book of the series.

If you want background on the book see the blurb above.

I started this series months ago and had decided to catch up on what new books had been released since I finished what was out. I have to admit its been months since I've read this book to be reviewing it will be tough.

It must have been tough for someone to be basically stalking you after a few nights in bed and then have the cops show up to talk to you because this woman is dead. I had to feel for the p

I Love This!!

The men in SEALs of Honor Series are fantastic! I love how each one has a different skill-set which makes them an integral part of their unit and how each one views himself as part of a very special family. Each man just knows, without any second thought, that his buddies will have his back, believe in him and be a member of his immediate support system.

Macklin, just like the other men in his Unit, is fiercely protective of the people in his life, especially the woman he feels is h

When we met Macklin we got some hints as to his ex and the wild things she did. In this book we find out all about that relationship and how truly weird she was.

As Mac prepares to return to duty Corey, Ryder and Caitlyn are out for coffee when they are approached by the police. Apparently Mac's ex Marsha has been murdered and he is the number one suspect.

Mac goes in for questioning and finds himself intrigued by Alex, a feeling he hadn't experienced in a very long time.

Life has a way of taking us away from our escape at times. This was one of those books that I didn't want to put down.

I am so in lust with Macklin! Dale Mayer has written another intriguing SEAL's of honor.

As Macklin is a murder suspect right off the bat and the detective in charge of the case, Alex, sets off sparks from the get go.

Macklin made a mistake when he dated his ex, he knew it but he couldn't let her go, he tried but her she brought him back. He finally freed himself from her and hadn't heard from her in two years. Now she is dead and he is a prime suspect.

Enter Alex, the new detective on the Coronado Police force. She has her own problems as she was chosen for this position but not from within the department, she came from back East and some aren't too happy with that. She has a lot to prove with this case.

Macklin by Dale Mayer
SEALs of Honor Series Book 15
Macklin Princeton's last relationship was so bad, that he's pretty much given up on dating for a few years now. A wacko woman who stalks you can do that to a man. But when the new detective picks him up for questioning...he rethinks the whole relationship thing. Although, when you're a murder's kind of hard to date the detective.

Detective Alex Carson has been on the job for a month. Now she has a murder and several break-ins to solve

After meeting him in Ryder's story, I knew Macklin was going to be a great guy to read about. He's everything you want in a hero, a true man of honor, and this story was absolutely fascinating.

After being stalked for years by a crazy ex-girlfriend, Macklin is the prime suspect when she ends up murdered. The detective on the case, Alex, is quickly impressed with Macklin's forthright account of his history with the victim, and eventually they have to work together to solve the crime.

Macklin's life was invaded for six years with a crazy woman stalker. He had given up on relationships because of it and now his stalker has been killed and he's the prime suspect. Enter Alex, newly appointed to the Coronado police department and charged with proving Macklin is a killer.

The story plot is really interesting and involved and Macklin and Alex are prevented from exploring feelings for one another because of Macklin's involvement in the case.

Alex Carson is the new detective at the Coronado police department. She's investigating a murder of a woman and needs to interview Macklin, a Navy Seal, whose name was written in blood beside the body. Macklin relates his past relationship with the victim as crazy. Full of stalking, lies and protective orders. He adds all his team mates can verify his statement.
Pretty sure Macklin isn't guilty Alex continues the investigation. Break ins start happening in the area where only lone women reside. N

Wow, I really enjoyed this book (but I usually enjoy every book Dale writes). You first meet Macklin with Ryder’s story and I really liked him in that book. Very glad to get to read his story now. He is the typical alpha seal man who is doubly sexy with his wit and banter. He meets Alex who is the detective investigating a murder that all clues point to Macklin being the prime suspect. You can feel their chemistry right away. I always enjoy series where previous characters make an appearance and ...more

I love all of Dale Mayer’s books. Although this didn’t have a lot of action like some of the other books in the series, there was a mystery that needed to be solved. The book starts with Macklin being notified that his crazy ex was murdered and his name written in blood by the body. Not that Macklin doesn’t trust the detective assigned to the case, because he did and there’s electricity in the air whenever they meet. Macklin knows he can’t start a relationship with the detective while he’s a mur ...more

Dale Mayer has done another fantastic job with this book. Filled with action, drama and intrigue.

Alex has a murder mystery and a spate of breaking and entering on her plate at her new detective job, huge sexy as sin Seal, Macklin is a suspect when his psycho ex is the victim and his name is at the scene.

This is a well-written story, wonderfully descriptive, seems like you are there. Great characters, the attraction simmers between them.

I LOVED this. These guys are the epitome of heroes!!! The plot and characters are so realistic. The suspense part of the book just make you turn page after page. It just grabs you from the beginning. I really hated to see the end. Macklin is such a wonderful character and Alex is such a strong female lead and perfect for him.
