Castillo (the Texas Legacy series) kicks off her Texas Navy SEALS series with the instant, fiery passion between a SEAL team commander and a veterinarian who finds herself a target of his most determined enemy. Lt. Amador “Stryker” Salas and his hand-picked SEAL team are assigned to assess rumors of a terrorist cell operating on the U.S.-Mexico border. They purchase a Texas cattle ranch to provide cover for their operation, and Stryker, usually intensely focused on his missions, finds an enticing distraction in local veterinarian Anya Gutierrez. Anya has faced plenty of hardship in her life, including the demands of her job; Stryker is the first man to make her feel thoroughly safe. But even as Stryker and his team infiltrate the Mexican drug cartels, cartel leader Benicio Davila learns about Stryker’s growing love for Anya and kidnaps her in order to lure the SEALs to a final showdown. The immediate attraction, hypermasculine lead, and imperiled heroine feel overly familiar, but Castillo constructs an intriguing corruption case for her SEALs to pursue that will keep readers eager for further revelations in future books.
