Navy SEALS are trained to take on all enemies in extreme situations—but there’s nothing more dangerous than matters of the heart . . .

This is Matt Iverson’s story.

Working for a security company with his brothers-in-arms has given former SEAL Matt “MacGyver” Iverson a reason to get up every morning. But keeping a runaway bride from harm isn’t in his job description . . .

Former Marine Kellie Greyson is in over her head. A cold-hearted ultimatum leaves her no choice but to wed mob boss Tony Palazzi. But when she overhears his deadly plans for her after she says ‘I do,’ Kellie flees his casino, only to wind up in a seedy Vegas bar. The next thing she knows, she’s waking up beside a protective powerhouse of a man . . .

Though Kellie’s body kickstarts his into high gear, MacGyver is all business trying to convince her that they need each other. Both are looking for missing people—and all roads lead to Palazzi. MacGyver will have to lay all his cards on the table to get Kellie to trust him in a game they might not survive . . .

One night a couple months ago, I was thinking about authors that I loved in the past but haven't heard much about since. One author that immediately came to mind was Dixie Lee Brown. I loved her Trust No One series, but haven't seen anything new from her since the last book in the series came out. Fast forward a couple days and who do I spot while looking at new releases from Kensington? None other than Dixie and her new book Honor Among SEALs. I was over the moon with excitement and downloaded it immediately. Dixie did not disappoint. Honor Among SEALs was exactly what I loved about her writing style. I love her style of romantic suspense. Both have a slow build to an explosive finish. I fell hard for the characters. Matt and Kellie are two strong characters that butt head at times, but will go to great lengths for each other. I loved their chemistry and sexual tension. I am so glad I just happened to come across this book when I did. Reconnecting with Dixie's writing style and finding a new series to immerse myself into was icing on an already fabulous cake. I will for sure pick up the first book in the series while I wait for the 3rd book's release next April.

Dixie Lee Brown lives and writes in Central Oregon, inspired by gorgeous scenery and three hundred sunny days a year. Having moved from South Dakota as a child to Washington, Montana and then to Oregon, she feels at home in the west. She resides with two dogs and a cat, who are currently all the responsibility she can handle. Dixie works fulltime as a bookkeeper. When she's not writing or working, she loves to read, enjoy movies, and if it were possible, she’d spend all of her time at the beach. She is also the author of the Trust No One romantic suspense series, published by Avon Impulse.
