Saving lives is his mission.

In Hidden Agendas by Lora Leigh, tough-as-nails Navy SEAL Kell Kreiger is the best there is at searching, rescuing, and taking no prisoners…yet even the rush of ever-more dangerous missions isn’t enough to satisfy him. Haunted by a tortured past, Kell seeks distraction in a secret world of dark intimacies. But when Emi

Being stubborn, er, persistent does pay off and I'm glad I didn't give up on this series after the craptastic Reno's Chance (in Honk If You Love Real Men Four Tales of Erotic Romance) and the disastrous Dangerous Games. For Maggie's Sake (in Real Men Do It Better) was pretty good, but it was "just" a novella and so loosely connected to the series that I wasn't completely sold... until now. Yup, Hidden Agendas has finally made my previous suffering worthwile, LOL.

This book picks up where Dangerou
Opening Line:"Diego Fuentes stared into the vast panarama of cliffs and ocean outside of his borrowed home, and reflected on destiny."

HIDDEN AGENDAS is part of Lora Leigh's Tempting Seals/Elite Ops series which I'm a huge fan of. As Usual Lora Leigh's bedroom scenes are some of the hottest you'll read and wow can she write a delicious alpha-male hero. Her descriptions of these muscular, testosterone filled, bulge in the jeans men are yummy.

Rating: 4.5 / 5

As much as I enjoyed Dangerous Games, I think I enjoyed this one a bit more. It was a little more solid on the suspense side of things, but still fairly hot - though maybe not as erotic as Dangerous Games (which is a little disappointing).

Emily was a great heroine to read. I really enjoyed her a lot. She's got this innocent, naive sheen to her, but underneath, she's a total bad-ass. That amused me to no end. I loved all her antics, and the fact that she didn't cower and hide when

Wow! I would have to say this one might be the most erotic book in the series so far. Super steamy sex scenes and I just love Kell's Cajun accent that comes out at just the right times ;)

She was rescued by none other than Kell, a man she has been pining away for since she was a kid. When Emily causes trouble for the last time and her current bod

Hidden Agendas es el cuarto libro de la serie Tempting Seals escrito por Lora Leigh y narra la historia de Kell, a quien conocemos brevemente en las historias anteriores y Emily, un personaje nuevo.
Tengo que reconocer que cuando lei la sinopsis de este libro no me llamo tanto la atencion como las otras de la saga y sin embargo, Hidden Agendas es la historia que mas me ha gustado por el momento. Para mi fue la mas entretenida y menos densa de las que llevo leidas.

I love Lora Leigh’s Breeds and Bound Hearts Series but I have not really being interested in her Tempting Seals series. However a friend gave me two books and I decided to check out how good they were.
Hidden Agendas was an enjoyable read but I found a few things that irritated and bored me which had me skipping some pages.

Hidden Agendas by Lora Leigh is the fourth book in her Tempting SEALs series.

Although I know there are more stories in this series, I've only read the two full length novels so far and I've truly enjoyed each one!

The latest, Hidden Agendas, picks up where the last, (Dangerous Games), left off. We see early on that the big bad on the scene, Diego Fuentes, is manipulating things so that he can control one man ... the son that he never knew existed.

I really enjoyed the romance between Kell and Emily. They were very sassy and cute together. However, the suspense part of this story was extremely far fetched even by the standards of romantic suspense. Please do yourself a favor and don't think of the motivation of the bad guys, the implausibility of the "whore's dust" drug, how stupid the name "whores dust" sounds, and the fact that the bad guys are right out of an after school special about how drugs are bad, mmmkay?

Book 4 in the Tempting SEALs series

This is the first book I have read by this author, and I didn’t feel lost reading this book. Like many series, they typically can be read in any order but I know that one can get the most out of a series by starting at the beginning.

And boy, what a beginning this book has! It was HOT at page 20! However, I found that once the h/h (Kell and Emily) slept together (very early on in the book) I found my interest waning. I love the build up, so when “it” happens so
5 stars - Romantic Suspense

Another sizzling read in Lora Leigh's Tempting SEALS romance/action/suspense series. Hidden Agendas featuring alpha male Navy SEAL Kell Kreiger and feisty heroine Emily Stanton has a bit more suspense/action than the previous book in the series, Dangerous Games. The plot has exciting twists and turns that lead up to the next book in the series. Although not quite as erotic as Dangerous Games, it still has very explicit and hot romance. 5 stars!
The fourth book in Lora Leigh's Tempting SEALs series. I had read Dangerous Games and didn't care for it too much. But I decided to give Lora Leigh another chance and I'm glad I did. I liked this one and may just check out more of the series now.
Hidden Agendas
3.5 Stars

Tired of her father’s overprotectiveness and interference in her romantic relationships, Emily Stanton wants more for her life. Enter Navy SEAL, Kell Krieger, the one man Emily has always wanted, but could never have … until now, when a dangerous drug lord has set his sights on her and Kell is the only one standing in his way…

The best installment in a series that has been pretty lackluster.

Kell and Emily have sensual and steamy chemistry alongside an emotional attachment

I have not read the novella stories in the Tempting SEALs series and tend to regard Hidden Agendas as Book 2 because it's the second of the full-length installment, after Dangerous Games.

HA was much, much better than DG, without the annoying erotica accouterment that was just for show in the earlier book. Hidden Agendas focused on the plot, the characters and is a must-read-fir
Holy Moly...This is one of my favourites in the series so far.Kell is just incredible.He is alpha and dominant in the best possible way and not irritatingly arrogant.I loved his accent and the things he said in the heat of passion left me all tingley.He has a very sad back story which makes you just want to love him!

Emily is full of gumption, although she doesn't know it to start with. I always enjoy heroines who end up stronger than when they began and this was done well in this book. Unfortuna
Another book that I could not like.
I spent my whole time reading this huffing, and not like I was panting or gasping because it was so hot. As I found the hot scenes just tepid. There was indeed a consistent accumulation of cliches, bad dialogue lines, each worst than the previous. We discovered the heroine in the first chapter in a strip club, trying her luck as a stripper. Well she was 25, still a virgin (rolleyes, rolleyes) and decided not to remain one for a day longer (cannot roll my eyes e

Shelves: lora-leigh far I have been pretty disappointed in this series. It's as if a completely different author is writing this series (as opposed to the Nauti series). I don't even really know how to even express what it is that bothers me about this series. Some of the language feels trite and overused. If Kell called Emily a vixen one more time I was going to scream. We get it..she's a vixen...she's his little fox. Whatever.
And apparently I'm glutton for punishment because I'm still interested in Ia
Hated the hero. What a jerk. And the author kept describing his attitude/etc by using 'male' as some sort of adjective, that drove me insane, 'He had a look of male confidence.' Okay, as opposed to what? Female confidence? And the d-bag was obsessing about getting some, and NO he was not going to 'let this vixen into his poor damaged heart (internal dialogue I am paraphrasing).' Blah, blah, blah. It was kind of sick how much he wanted to control the heroine, and have her bend to his will. I lite ...more

4 estrellas.
Al principio le iba a poner 3.5 la personalidad de la protagonista no me convencía del todo.

1) No la entendía o mas bien no entendía su personalidad.
2) Se contradecía.

Esperaba un poco más del libro sobre todo de emily (ya que la había conocido en otro libro y estaba emocionada por saber su historia) PERO las ultimas paginas me encantaron tanto que al final le puse 4, me gustó mucho el epílogo :D me hace querer leer el siguiente libro de inmediato. ☪

This was not one of my favorite Lora Leigh books. I had a hard time with how quickly the hero and heroine became so intense about each other. However as always, I loved her alpha hero, and I found my way breezing through the final few chapters. Just because this wasn't my favorite doesn't mean I won't read the rest of the series.

Sexy! Each book is following a formula but Lora Leigh writes each character so uniquely they are all very entertaining and HOT HOT HOT with intriguing stories that have you rooting for all the MC's all the way through, plus the stories build on each other and that just makes them even more engaging.
Kell and Emily...

Emily is daughter of an ex SEAL and current senator... her mother died in an accident after leaving her family because he was too controlling... her father raised her as a tomboy, encouraging her sense of adventure and teaching her how to defend herself... until she turned 18, then his expectations changed, and Emily struggled to be herself and to appease her father...

A quanto pare, questo è l'anno dei SEALs. Film, libri...ormai sono peggio del prezzemolo. Non che mi lamenti, sia chiaro. Dopo averli richiesti a gran voce per più di un anno, finalmente posso dire di avere l'imbarazzo della scelta.
Ma, chissà perché, il SEAL in italiano non rende bene come quando lo si legge in americano. Sarà che è una figura totalmente estranea alla realtà italiana, sarà che sembra finto come solo un americano sa essere, sarà che la sola parlata straniera dona quel tocco di f

Kau pernah membaca stiker mobil bertuliskan, "Jangan dekat-dekat, aku bukan mobil gampangan." Nah itulah perasaan Emily Stranton saat ayahnya yang senator selalu mengirimkan bodyguard-bodyguard gagah dari militer untuk menjaganya, sekaligus mengharapkan terjadinya cinta lokasi yang akan mengubah mereka menjadi calon menantu potensial. Dia menolak mereka semua sampai ayahnya mengirimkan Kellian Kreiger.
