Ex-Navy SEAL Vann Highrider has given everything to Brothers-in-Arms, the boot camp he owns with his teammates. He’s facing his toughest mission yet—someone is framing the SEALs for murder. It’s up to Vann to clear their name to keep their business afloat…and his Brothers out of jail. The last thing he needs is more bad press from a stupid accident. So when he finds a petite brunette failing miserably at his survival course, the Cherokee tracker wants to send her packing. Yet there’s something about her he can’t say no to…. But if she wants a second chance, she’ll have to follow his every move.
Restaurant heiress Mercy Conde may be business savvy, but she’s always lacked physical prowess. If she wants to take her family’s empire overseas, though, she has to prove she can take care of herself. Brothers-in-Arms’ survival training seems like the perfect fit, but it doesn’t take long for this deep thinker to realize she’s in over her head. When tall, dark, handsome Vann offers to take her under his wing, she agrees to play things his way…especially when his way has her under more than just his wing.
Vann is used to being a lone wolf, but he’s eager to boost Mercy’s confidence both on the boot camp course and in the bedroom. But when their training becomes a real life or death situation, they’ll have to put their skills to the test if they want to survive.

SEAL Protector is the second in the series with a mystery throughout all three books. I haven’t read book one but was able to quickly get caught up on the mystery so far. And to find out how it ends I’ll definitely need to read book three. And with Leslie North’s writing ability that wouldn’t be a hassle. Once I started SEAL Protector I was quickly drawn into the story, finishing it within a few hours of starting it. Vann was sweet, smart and sexy. Also stubborn. Mercy was hilarious, with her fear of heights and her tendency for dramatics. I like how they turned her height into different advantages. I appreciate that (especially considering my own stature). The message of believing in yourself was pervasive and definitely something we need to hear more of, especially in our culture of tearing each other down. If you’re looking for a fun, romantic suspense with a sexy SEAL and a feisty female then pick up SEAL Protector. It’s a quick, fun read that will keep you guessing and rooting for Mercy.
I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley. This is my honest and voluntary (and late) review.
