She fears for her life.
He’ll risk his to protect her.
Falling in love? Not part of the plan…
Chloe Cooper is on the run from an abusive ex. Living in a new state, with a new name, she’s ready to focus on rebuilding her life. She’s got a job she loves, a new home—and a sexy Navy SEAL neighbor who makes her pulse flutter in spite of her determination not to get involved. But when a threatening message arrives, her dread about what her ex will do if he finds her forces her to make a choice.
Ryan “Dirty Harry” Callahan is protective by nature. When he meets Chloe, it’s clear she’s skittish about something. When he learns why she ran from her old life, his first objective is to keep her safe. His second is to make sure she knows she can trust him—and that she’ll have a posse of Navy SEALs at her back if she ever needs them.
When the attraction between Ryan and Chloe explodes, they’re stunned by its intensity—and helpless to resist its seductive heat. Everything is finally going right for Chloe—until her worst fears come true. With Chloe missing and her life on the line, Ryan will stop at nothing to get her back. Before he loses the woman he loves forever.

Review by Barbara
What a Sexy, Exciting Read this is. I am so glad this book is a stand-a-lone as I didn’t realize it was part of a series when I picked it up. The other exciting part is that now that I’ve read Hot Seal Hero, I am definitely going to one-click the other books in this series. With Hot Seal Hero, the author has given us a very romantic, HOT, Suspenseful storyline that kept me captivated throughout, with strong alpha characters that I truly fell in love with. After reading the gutsy storyline and meeting all the men and women that make up this tight knit family, reading the others in the series became a no brainer for this reader. Kudos to the author for an outstanding well written book.
This is a story about a woman, Chloe, who has no one left in her life she can count on and is on the run from an abusive ex. She meets her hot sexy neighbor by chance under the most hilarious and embarrassing of situations. Needless to say this sparks a fire that has been missing for a long time in both of them. But Ryan “Dirty Harry” Callahan (the sexy neighbor) quickly sees a vulnerability in Chloe that his protective instincts, taught to him in his navy seal training and by his Aunt Becky, wants to defend and conquer. Especially down the road when things escalate and Chloe starts getting threatening messages. But when Dirty and his team and their wifes jump into her world, can she trust them or will she end up broken and on the run again.
2 Thumbs Up and 5 stars for an exciting, sexy storyline. I highly recommend grabbing up Hot Seal Hero and if you haven’t read the others in the series, grab them up too, I know I am.
Review by Kathy
Outstanding read!!! Great storyline surrounding Chloe and her Navy Seal neighbor Ryan "Dirty Harry" Callahan as we first meet the two in a quite amusing way. Chloe is moving in across the street but the movers (one being really creepy) can't get their truck in place with the neighbor's truck where it is. Chloe knocks and knocks on the door and finally hears a man yell that he's coming. When the door opens, there he stands in all his naked glory and hungover! Figuring he had to move his truck he goes and gets his keys when Chloe asks if he should put some clothes on. Yep...great first meeting, but everything begins to roll from there as he and his roommate Neo end up having to help her move her things in. Ryan finds himself attracted to the beautiful neighbor and Chloe finds him really attractive as well but tells herself that she will have to keep herself away from him considering her past relationship and feeling that her ability to choose the right kind of guy is completely off!
This story has it all. Excitement, humor, intrigue and such heat that the Southern Bell Chloe could fry a batch of her delicious fried chicken in it! From the very first page you will be hooked and not able to put it down until you see how it ends. The characters are wonderfully written and quite engaging, making you wish you were a part of their inner circle.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. A totally enjoyable read and I cannot wait to read the next book.
Ryan “Dirty Harry” Callahan woke to the sounds of someone shouting and the beeping of a large truck backing up. His head throbbed as if someone inside chiseled away at his temples. The shouting and beeping continued and he groaned. Where the fuck was he?
He cracked an eye open and pain shot behind his eyeballs. He tried again, slowly. This time, he paid attention to his surroundings. He was in his own bed. What the hell had happened?
Then he remembered. The party at Money’s place, Ian Black, and a whole lot of drinking and laughing. He’d indulged too much, which wasn’t something he ever really did. He usually had an iron will about alcohol and he guarded himself carefully.
But yesterday—shit, yesterday had been different.
Had Neo gotten drunk too? Had they taken an Uber, or had someone brought them home? They shared a house, though they each had their own floor. The kitchen was on his floor, but he didn’t smell coffee.
He dragged his hand across his body and reached for his phone. Outside, the shouting and clunking continued. The beeping had stopped, but now the noise was just as bad.
He picked up his phone and squinted. Noon? It was fucking noon?
He dragged his body upright, groaning. Then his gaze landed on the bottle of water and the two horse sized Motrin sitting beside it. Neo had written a note, which meant Neo hadn’t been as drunk as he had.
Gone to the range. Take these, bud. Eat some cereal if you can. Man, you were drunk as shit!
Ryan grabbed the pills and twisted open the water, downing them both. He finished the water and lay back, wishing his head would either split and kill him or stop pounding. The doorbell rang and shattered whatever peace he was trying to find. He lay there like death warmed over and prayed they’d go away.
Eventually, he climbed from the bed, grabbed his Sig, holding it at his side, and stumbled down the hall toward the door. He wished like hell he had the basement floor today, but it wasn’t to be.
“Fucking stop pressing that bell,” he yelled at whoever was on the other side. And just yelling it made his head threaten to split wide open. He reached the door and peered through the peephole.
A woman stood on the other side, arms crossed, foot tapping as she waited. He jerked the door open and growled at her.
“What do you want?”
Her eyes widened as they climbed from his midsection to his face. Then they widened some more. “Oh. Oh goodness, I am so sorry.” She held up both hands as if to ward him off. He squinted at her, because the light was killing him, but what he could see looked nice.
Long golden-brown hair, wide eyes, a pretty pink mouth. Her skin was tanned. She wore a loose T-shirt and shorts with flip flops. Her legs were long, long, long for a small girl. He’d be interested if he wasn’t so fucking hungover.
Across the street, a moving van sat kind of cockeyed in the street. His truck sat next to the curb, right in front of where the van needed to go.
It dawned on him what she wanted. “You want me to move the truck, right?”
She stared hard at his face. “Um, yes? I’m sorry, you clearly look like you’re ill or something, but—” She waved a hand behind her, didn’t move her eyes from his. “I’m moving in today and the van can’t get into the driveway.”
He shoved a hand through his hair. “Fine, I’ll get the keys.”
He turned and went over to the kitchen counter, found the keys and dropped the Sig, and headed back to the door. She was still standing there, back turned as she yelled something at someone across the street. He stepped onto the porch and she turned around again. Squeaked as her gaze dropped and then she dragged it up to his face again.
“I, um, oh dear,” she said. And then she laughed, throwing her hand over her mouth and giggling in a way that made him frown. Pretty laugh, though.
“I’m sorry. Really. But, um—” She waved her hand in his general direction. “Shouldn’t you put on some pants?”
Ryan stood there, puzzling over her words. Then he looked down—and discovered he was completely and utterly naked. He was standing on the front porch in front of God and everybody, holding his keys, his dick standing at half-mast like a tired old soldier who couldn’t quite make it work.
