JJ and Davy first meet at a wedding where they let their inhibitions go and spend a wild night of sexual indulgence together… not so new to Davy, but very uncharacteristic for JJ. Then both go their separate ways...JJ to find a way to keep the car dealership that she feels is her family legacy, and has become the sole focus of her life, and Davy back to Afghanistan to serve his country as a SEAL.

They meet again almost a year later at another wedding, but Davy doesn’t remember JJ. He is drawn to

I had such high hopes for Mary Margret Daughtridge's "SEALed" series. Her first book, "SEALed With A Kiss", was fantastic! Couldn't wait to read the follow-up, "SEALed With A Promise". "Promise" was pretty good, but nothing to write home about. Yet given how good the first book was, I still had high hopes for the third installment, "SEALed With A Ring". *shaking head* Sadly, this series just gets worse and worse.

The plot itself is old and stale...In order to inherit the family business from a gr

I really enjoyed this book. It is the third in the series and is the best so far in my opinion. I loved the hero, David. He was a very real, very human character who made mistakes and grew and learned. The author did a good job making him a strong and sexy man who was also gentle while not being sickly sweet perfect. The heroine, JJ, was a strong woman who needed a strong man. Anyone less she would have just walked over. Still, she wasn't a ball breaker. She had fears and insecurities that her r ...more

I absolutely fell in love with this book! I loved the character building, the plot, and the suspense level! The author did a wonderful job of keeping the readers questioning Davy and and JJ's future.

I personally love stories about servicemen. I have a soft spot for anyone who serves our country because I grew up with a veteran grandfather; soooo....maybe my opinion is biased but I thought Mary did a great job showing the dedication of a SEAL.

Davy was a well built and multi-faceted character wh

The story here isn't all that bad. What I really had a problem with is the fact that there was not passion whatsoever in the book. Hell, I don't expect passion, but a little emotion would have been nice. It would have made the book go by faster.
But i did like the characters, so it wasn't a complete waste of time.

I have read all of the books in this series and all of them are wonderful. My only complaint is that the author won't write anymore books

I read and reviewed Ms. Daughtridge’s first book, SEALed with a Kiss,and was very pleasantly surprised. Besides the usual ups and downs of a relationship nowadays, she gives her characters an added hardship of some kind that makes their lives even more real for the reader.

In SwaK is was the hero’s son and their relationship, along with touching scenes between them, that burrowed into my heart. In SwaR the hero is wounded in action, comes home with injuries to overcome and scars to live with. Ms.

The sensuous book cover caught my eye, the blurb on the back pulled me in and the intriguing story held my attention until the end.

Bewitching J.J. Caruthers is a smart, successful businesswoman who has it all and is about to lose everything.

Sexy Davy Graziano is a Navy SEAL medic who has a way with the ladies and lives in the moment until his world is turned upside down.

When these two collide at a wedding, one thing leads to another. After a night of mind-blowing sex, J.J. wakes realizing what

SEALED WITH A RING by Mary Margret Daughtridge is book 3 of her SEALED series, following SEALED WITH A KISS and SEALED WITH A PROMISE. First let me say that Mary Margret Daughtridge is an awesome lady from my home state of North Carolina. And I always ALWAYS try to support my local authors, now let me tell you about this great book. From the previous statement you may awesome I'd be baised, and that's probably true, if the books weren't so great. But this series is one of the best IMHO. SEALED W ...more

It was good up until the very end which felt rushed. Read this back to back with Foster's Dash of Peril which has a very similar plot line - hero wins over tough, works-in-a-man's world heroine with steamy sex and good cooking. This was a MUCH better execution. David, even with a very serious injury, has a better sense of himself and understands how to be supportive without being whimpy. And JJ (Jane) is tough, closed off, and in-charge, but she is not one-dimensional.

After JJ learns some very bad news from her lawyer, at a wedding no less and she runs into a handsome SEAL who is bound and determined to cheer her up. JJ impulsively accepts his offer of a night of passion. Even though it's the best sex of her life, she regrets her one night stand. A year passes and wouldn't you know it she runs into Davy at another wedding. Only Davy doesn't seem to remember the night they shared. The problem is JJ needs a husband if she is to keep her family's car business. T ...more

Now, all done with #3. David (no more Davy after his last fight in the 'Stan...) and JJ come together in Sealed with a Ring. Of the three, it's my least favorite as Davy is a jackass. He even says it about himself. Doesn't matter how pretty ya are, being a jackass ruins it for me. However.... it's worth sticking with it because David still has Davy's charm without the arrogance. JJ is the only goddess of the three women in the bundle. She's a bit of a machine but that changes over the story, too ...more

This book was so romantic that I was constantly sighing through it. I really enjoyed that while this "Forced into Marriage" theme is sort of cliche' it wasn't at all. I honestly believed the characters and the situations seemed genuine. It was a surprise and a much needed breath of fresh air.
Sometimes Romance novelist throw in lots of steam and sensuality but leave out the romance and sometimes there's lots of sweet moments and not a lot of heat but this was the perfect blend of romance and sex

After tearing through the 1st two books of the series, in two days, I eagerly downloaded SEALed with a Ring. From the start, I was disappointed in the characters. I wasn't overly enthused with Davy, who we met briefly in the previous book, but his character grew on me as he matured and recovered. On the other hand, I never felt any typed of affection or camaraderie with J.J.. She never felt real to me and at some points, I was routing for Davy to find someone else. This book just did not ring tr ...more

Every time I read Mary Margaret I think that hero is my favorite. These guys get under your skin and are as real as flesh and blood. Davy Graziano is perfect - in body, face and mind or is when JJ Caruthers meets him. But that last deployment spoils some things for him. And she's too embarrassed by their first meeting to look too closely at the changes. But for right now at least, they need each other. Since either have ever needed anyone before, it's a tough lesson to learn. Don't miss this one ...more

This book had a good story. The one thing for which I didn't care was that nothing was left to the imagination. It was, at times, like reading soft porn. I'm no prude but I prefer a story with more romance and less explicit sex. The book had some typos, not many, but it did take me out of the moment for a brief spell. This isn't the worst book of its kind I've read, and I admit I did enjoy a lot of it, but knowing what I know now, I would not have picked it off the shelf.

I don't usually read books that are just romances, so this was a little different for me. I enjoyed it. The book was well written and the information about the SEALs was interesting. A young business woman is given an ultimatum: get married or lose everything. A young SEAL with a head injury might just be the answers to her problem.

4 1/2 stars. This book started off a bit slow with lots of descriptive writing that seemed to be bogging down the story, but then that seemed to clear up, or else I got so caught up in the amazing storyline that I simply stopped noticing it. This was a fantastic book with a really riveting storyline. I LOVED it!

10 stars. Loved it. David and JJ are so real. Daughtride did a fantastic job of bringing them and their story to life. I devour this 321 page book in 2 days. Every second I could grab, I was reading. I'm hooked and off now to find another one to download.

You won't regret this one. I've read some mixed reviews and it just goes to show you how unique we all are.

An amazing story. I unplugged from the Internet just so I could read this book with no distractions. The story starts a bit slower than what I'm used to reading but the opening slowness is needed for the story. I've only read one other book that has affected me so poignantly. A life-affirming book.

Didn't quit enjoy this story as Jax and Pickett's. I skipped a lot of pages throughout the book. It took too long for their story to continue from the wedding at the beginning of the book. The first chapter was also very confusing. It wasn't clear whether JJ was in the past or the present.
