You’ve been duped. Hoodwinked. Bamboozled.

Let me explain: This book should come with a major disclaimer—not some cute little, happy whoo-whoo blurb about a girl that gets in trouble and a guy that saves her. That is not this book. Well, that’s not all this book is. I’m doing my civic duty in warning you. This book is a total SET-UP. Yep, you heard me or read me or whatever. It’s a set-up. A master planned, super-sneak, evil genius (in the nicest sort of way), SET-UP. Alright, I might be stretch

Protecting his girls on foreign soil turns out to be the easy part of the team’s mission. Protecting them from a threat waiting at home may be the biggest fight of Ace’s life.

Okay…I read a lot of books. Like. A LOT. And I try to do reviews on as many as I can, cause, ya know…authors and readers need reviews to let them know how good a book is. Well, at least, that’s my theory. Now I have a friend, who for many reasons (like I want to stay alive) will not be named, who does these FABULOUS reviews. I mean her reviews are witty, humorous, intelligent and quite often spot on about whichever book she is reviewing. This is a good thing. Remember, I said that readers and au ...more

This is a really good story.

Usual Susan Stoker Hero. Strong, protective streak. This time for both the heroine and three children.
Some interesting issues raised.
No intimate scenes with anyone other than the Hero and heroine.
Bit slow burn due to the situation they are in and the three children being present for most of their time together.
No other woman or man drama.
No real relationship history.
Pretty instant connection but more admiration than love at first.
Some violent references and unpleasant

Securing Piper was just one surprising adventure after another.

I have to say I thought this story was going in such a different but I also have to say I absolutely love Securing Piper it was an amazingly emotional story that left he lovingly shocked to the core.

And the little surprises at the end omg Susan Stoker is such a tease.

Hands up gals who thinks a hot Navy SEAL who grabs life by the balls and his chance at happiness in a crazy situation and marries a women he's just met a

Worth more than 5 Stars 🌟

This story is an absolute must read and from everything I’ve read of Susan’s work so far, I’m going to say her BEST yet🤩 The only reason I’m saying that is because of the amount of times I had tears in my eyes😭 I fell in love with Ace and his gentlemanly ways with the girls that made me wish for my very own SEAL......shush don’t tell my hubby😁

I have read most of Susan Stoker's books and I am never disappointed in her portrayals of heroes and heroine. We discovered what Ace wanted most in Securing Caite...and he gets his desire in Securing Piper. This book is emotion-PACKED. The empathy that Piper has for those less fortunate is endearing and you immediately want her to succeed in what she wants to do and the fact that Ace steps right up is a great beginning to the story. There were so many heartwarming tears evoking scenes in the boo ...more

Wow, this story had everything that Ms. Stoker is know for in it. It is Ace and Piper's story and it starts off with action and ends with a wanting for more stories.

Ace always wanted a family and Piper needs to get married in order to adopt three beautiful young girls that she protected during an incursion. Instant family, but it works. Ace and Piper found "the one" in each other and the rest just follows.

Ace is incredible and totally alpha male. Piper is amazing, everything a SEAL hero needs

I want my own Ace!! This story was intense and exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat from the first sentence. I want Piper as my best friend and I want a man like Ace in my life.

WOW!!! Welcome to one of the best reads/listens I have had in quite a while!!
This is book number 3 in Susan Stokers Seals of Protection:Legacy series (unless you count the novella Securing Brenae), then this is number 4 in the series.
This story is about Beckett Morgan(Ace-wait until you hear the story for that name) and Piper Johnson.

This is book 3 in the Seal of Protection:Legacy series and can absolutely be read as a stand alone. However, I loved the previous books and highly recommend them as well! In this one we get Beckett “Ace” Morgan and Piper Johnson’s story. Piper went to Timor-Leste to visit her best friend who was in the peace corps. What should have been a fun time visiting and sight seeing turns out completely different when rebels attack the orphanage they are visiting. Piper never expects to suddenly become re ...more

I had to read the book more then once, I wanted to make sure I did not miss anything as Susan Stoker loaded this book with so much stuff. All good stuff might I add.

We are brought back to the SEALS, and on this adventure we return to Ace and his team. There mission was simple, bring back the girl. Well...that did not go to plan at all, the women they a

Wow! Piper and Ace's story is so full of everything - action, suspense, drama, love, sacrifice, even a touch of horror. It was hard to put this book down to sleep or work, but I had to because sleep means I can work and work means I get money and money means I can buy more books (nasty vicious circle).

In Securing Caite we found out what 3 members of this SEAL team regretted most. Rocco - missing his date with Caite, Gumby - not getting a dog (Securing Sydney), and Ace - not having kids. This st

This was another fun adventurous read from Susan Stoker. I liked how this book had more of a familial feel to it given that Ace and Piper become a family with three girls within days of even meeting. While they did marry immediately the two were more focused on the girls than their relationship which was nice as it gave them time to get to know one another. (view spoiler) ...more

Piper & Ace's story is quite INTENSE & contains a lot of emotion. It grabbed me from the first chapter & I didn't want to put it down!! I'm not a huge fan of "tromping through the jungle" stories, but so far I've enjoyed the ones by this author. I love the openness of the characters - there's no hiding feelings or prevaricating about the relationship. They're in a pressurized situation & need to make fast decisions, and they do.

I love this team, the comradery & brotherhood they have, and how th

An action-packed romance that had all the feels…

Piper and Ace’s story was amazing! Stuck in a deadly situation, Piper wasn’t ashamed to admit she needed a hero. When Ace and his military brothers found them, the danger wasn’t gone but it felt a whole lot less scary…

Efficient, capable and strong enough to keep her fears at bay, Ace was a hero just by doing what came natural. He and his group were what leading men are all about and their skills and take charge attitude meant the difference to Pipe

Securing Piper is by Susan Stoker. This is a great adventure and love story with US SEALs.
Piper Johnson spent her time in her apartment devoting herself to drawing her cartoons. She preferred staying home to going out. She was definitely not the adventurous nor athletic type. However, her best friend, Kalee invited her to Timor-Leste to visit her there at the Pease Corps town. She told her that it would be safe and that they would visit the orphanages she was so proud of.

Oh my word! What an emotional and intense roller coaster read this is. Scary and full of threats of various kinds all the way through but also filled with a fast but everlasting love, and hope for something better. With a twist I had a feeling might happen but the how was still a surprise. This was harrowing reading at times and edge of your seat at others, I also found some inspiration in the love and dedication that built throughout.

First off, this is my first ready by Susan Stoker. I’m not even sure I remember how I came across this book or author, but Securing Piper has been on my TBR list since it was published last year.
This book blew me away. I never anticipated reading a story this good, and it most definitely hits my top five favorite of all times.
Piper and Ace have amazing chemistry and their little girls - oh sweet lord they are the sweetest things ever!

SECURING PIPER by Susan Stoker. I adored this story. Ace and Piper work together perfectly. There is chemistry, sure, but more than that, there is a deeper connection that the reader could feel. Piper was terrific - my type of heroine. She's a bit of a loner, usually, yet when push came to shove, she did what she needed to do. And Ace - whew! He's an uber sexy SEAL. My heart melted when he interacted with the children. The story had a twist or two as well, that had me eagerly turning each page. ...more

Another great SS book. I think her SEAL books are my favorite-interesting locales, plenty of danger, and strong bonds between both the SEALs and the girlfriends/wives.
Also, loved the addition of the children in the story. I thought the adoption (will she/won't she) was so great. Kemala was perfect-surly and scared but won't say why.
