NAVY SEALS WANTED to join planned eco-community. Must be knowledgeable about sustainability, committed to the goals of our organization, comfortable with being filmed for a reality television show documenting our progress—and willing to marry within the year.
Wives provided for those lacking them.
When Navy SEAL sniper Harris "Hawk" Wentworth stumbles on the ad calling for participants in a new sustainable community and TV show, he can’t wait to join Base Camp in Chance Creek, Montana, and get started building a new future. After a lifetime of living on the fringes, always on the lookout for danger, he’s ready to hang up his rifle and finally relax. And if someone else is willing to find him a bride, he’s all for it. He’s always been more at home behind enemy lines than talking to women. He can’t wait to meet his wife to be. But it’s not his turn yet.
BACKUP BRIDE NEEDED: Are you female, single, between twenty-five and thirty-five years of age? Looking for a husband? Think you’ve got what it takes to join Base Camp? Follow the link below to apply.
Samantha Smith is willing to do anything to escape her long-time job driving the tour bus for the band her parents and sister play for. She’s ready for marriage, a settled home—and motherhood. And she wants them all right now. She knows she could be happy at Base Camp, so when an episode of the reality television series ends with a call for a backup bride for one of the participants, Sam applies for the position—no questions asked. She’s ready for whatever adventure awaits her. When Harris picks her up at the airport instead of Curtis Lloyd, the man she was told she was meant to marry, Sam assumes Harris is Curtis’s replacement—and if she’s honest, she’s relieved. The quiet, sexy sniper always caught her eye when he appeared on the show, and in person he’s everything Sam’s ever wished for in a husband.
Harris has to make a choice, fast. Correct the mistake Sam’s made about why he’s picking her up at the airport—or elope with Curtis’s bride.
What’s a Navy SEAL to do?
A SEAL's Pledge
This is the third book in the series about a group of ex-SEALs who are building Base Camp which is a sustainable community. A group of women are living on the same property. These women are living a regency lifestyle. Building this community is being filmed for a reality TV series and is being funded by an eccentric billionaire who has made several demands on the groups in order for them to keep the funding. The men must be married within a year with three of the women becoming pregnant.
This story is about Harris who has always been a protector and Samantha who was looking for a stable life since she has always traveled with her parent's musical group around the country and never had roots. When Harris picked Samantha up at the airport, he fell for her immediately and they married right away. He knew this would cause problems at Base Camp because she was suppose to marry another man there. It's also against the show rules to marry without being filmed.
I wasn't really enthusiastic about the idea of this series with the sustainable community and the women living like they were in Jane Austin's regency time but the more I read about it the more I liked it. I love military men in stories so the ex-SEALs hooked me right away. The regency lifestyle for the women still seems odd to me but I like the way the couples get together. I just knew the s**t would hit the fan when Curtis found out that Harris married the bride intended for him and couldn't wait to see how that worked out. That led to a very creative twist in this story.
I liked the well developed characters in A SEAL's Pledge. I admired Samantha for leaving the life she had for one she knew almost nothing about and agreeing to marry a man she'd never met. It was nice to see her strength of character once she was away from her family. I liked Harris' protectiveness for everyone but felt sorry for him because he so badly wanted to belong to something/somebody. He was a hard person to know because he didn't talk much but kept to himself.
Please note that even though I received a complementary copy of A SEAL's Pledge I am voluntarily reviewing it as I do with all the books I read.
