Liz Johnson is one of my favorite authors. I had the opportunity to read the first book in her Men of Valor series late last year. The second book, Seal Under Siege, came out this summer and I was more than happy to check it out.
One of my favorite type of series is one that continues with characters met previously. Liz does that in this series. We met Matt & Ashley in the first book, A Promise to Protect. We also met Ashley's brother, Tristan, in that first book. Her newest offering focuses on his story. Even though this is the second book in the Men of Valor series, each book stands well on its own. One could easily pick up the books out of order and very much enjoy the story.
Summary from the author:
SHE'S NOT SAFE YET
When Staci Hayes is rescued from a Mideast prison by navy SEAL Tristan Sawyer, she thinks the ordeal is over. But back in San Diego, a new threat arises. Staci has information that could prevent a hit on U.S. soil, and the terrorist will stop at nothing to silence her. Tristan insists on being her bodyguard, but his constant presence makes her long for things beyond her reach. Protecting Staci is the second chance Tristan needs to put the past behind him. Yet with a spy on the naval base, anyone could be a threat. Can he offer her safety…and love?Every once in a while it's just nice to be able to pick up a book and escape. I spent probably a bit too much time over the course of two days diving in to Staci & Tristan's story and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I liked the "who-dun-it" aspect of the book and didn't quite have it figured out until the very end - which is always fun. Seal Under Siege was a fun and engaging book and helped me escape for just a little bit. Thanks, Liz!
