Serena was raised in a loving but affluent family however she finds herself in quite the predicament as not only has she been kidnapped but during her time of captivity she is no longer pregnant but is now trying to look after her baby as well. Getting rescued by the man who didn’t know he was about to be a father is a surprise for both of them.

This is the story of Serena and Noah. They share one steamy night that leaves her with his baby. He’s a navy seal and is back on mission. She is an heiress and gets kidnapped. Will he rescue her and his baby? I enjoyed this romance. I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I received an ARC from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
This was a pleasant enough read but it just didn’t excite me. The story never really came to life for me. Noah was nice guy who stayed away from emotional entanglements. He watches a woman getting a tattoo and they have a ONS. A year later she has had their baby and gets kidnapped. He rescues her etc etc.

There was no real life in this relationship: only sex. I never felt they were falling in love and Noah’s attitude towards Selen

The writing is flawless, and the words are so captivating, the plot had so many twists and turns and none that I was expecting, and many shocking moments. I really enjoyed this book and it kept me engrossed throughout. I really loved th

A Sweet and Secret Mission

Serena Carson believes that her life has been, and continues to be, filled with blessings: her birth mother had chosen to carry her to term, and despite deserting the 3-month-old child, had left her in a safe location—at a fire station in a box. Her adoptive parents, wealthy owners of an international candy business, had welcomed her as a 4-month-old into their family, providing her with an older brother, and their hearts. And, this loving and generous couple also opera

He can't help but stare at the piece and not just because of it's artistic quality. Noah with his past believes he is good for nothing but a one night stand and he wants that one night with Serena.

I think this one is my favorite book to read. I loved the pace of the story. It was not to slow or fast. It has the right amount of elements as well. You have Noah who is still a bit young and has a lot going on since he is with SSoF. Then you have Serena who is the heir to a chocolate company that she has now taken over. She also does a lot of charity work and travels all over the world. So when these two meet, it gets heated with them. However, neither one of them knew that they made an imprin ...more

Noah realized fairly quickly that the kidnapped heiress he has been hired to rescue is the woman he has not been able to forget after their one night stand a year ago. It took him a bit longer to realize Serena is carrying a baby in the sling over her shoulder, but once he sees baby Gracie, he knows she is his daughter. Getting Serena and Gracie ...more

Noah works in security with some military buddies and Serena is a candy empire CEO (parents died not long ago). A year later, Noah and his group are called to rescue a business exec, in South America, who had been kidnapped and held with her new daughter. The characters are strong and determined (almost too much) but all work together like a tight knit group. Friends and family are powerful things. Susp ...more

Wow! This is quite an intriguing story, with twist that would blow your mind. Serena was an heiress with a heart of gold, but a take no prisoners attitude. Noah was a Navy Seal, who had a difficult upbringing and as such, didn’t know how to have a relationship. It was meant to be one night of unbridled pleasure between Noah and Serena, but this decision resulted in an wonderful surprise and an unexpected meeting when her life is in jeopardy.
