Release Date: January 15, 2019



Caite McCallan is a Department of Defense admin working in Bahrain when a glitchy elevator, of all things, leads to an unexpected invitation to dinner by a gorgeous Navy SEAL. When he later stands her up, Caite’s understandably upset…until she overhears a plot that confirms Rocco didn’t blow her off. Instead, he and two fellow SEALs are in danger—and Caite is forced to put her career and her life on the line to save them.Blake “Rocco” Wise never expected his routine mission to go sideways, but he was even more surprised to find himself and his teammates rescued by the adorably shy woman he met in a stalled elevator. Caite’s selfless act saved his life, but when attempts on her own make it clear someone wants her gone, it’s Rocco’s turn to protect the brave, sweet, sexy woman. The longer he knows her, the more he wants her…but keeping Caite close could bring her nearer to the enemy than ever before.** Securing Caite is the 1st book in the SEAL of Protection: Legacy Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.


By sheer force of will, Rocco kept himself from looking back at Caite as he and his teammates continued alone toward a door down the hall. There was something about her that had immediately snagged his attention. The second he’d seen her standing against the back wall of the elevator, his protective instincts had almost overwhelmed him.

She was shorter than him by nearly a foot, which for some reason intrigued him. The top of her head came to about his shoulder but when he’d put his arm around her in the elevator, they’d fit together perfectly. Her light brown hair was smoothly styled and just brushed against her shoulders. She had a cute little pixie nose and her cheeks had pinkened every time he’d stared at her a beat too long.

She’d made reference to being too heavy, but there was nothing about her that turned him off. She had plenty of curves, and from what he’d felt when she was leaning against him, she was soft in all the right places.

He’d already been mentally plotting a way to get to know Caite better when the elevator had stopped working. He’d prevented Ace and Gumby from finding a way out of the situation, despite knowing they hated to sit around and wait when they could be taking action themselves. Rocco knew his friends were more than amused by his obvious attempts to woo Caite, but like true wingmen, they hadn’t interrupted or given him shit about it. Then. He knew the second they were alone, they’d be all over him about her.

It was unfortunate that their temporary commander was her boss’s boss, but, as he’d pointed out, it wasn’t as if they were going to get married or anything. They’d only be in the country for a week or so, not enough time to really get to know her well or start any kind of relationship.

The thought irrationally bothered Rocco.
