Navy SEAL Reid Galvin is back from hell and eager to find comfort in Becca Anderson's arms. He knows he hurt her when he cut contact during his deployment, so when his call interrupts her date with another man, he has only himself to blame. But he can't forget what she means to him—or the sexy email she sent him—and he won't miss this chance to claim her as his own.
It's been weeks since Becca heard from the man she thought she was involved with. So when Reid wants to take up where they left off as if nothing happened, she refuses. Then he rescues her from a first date gone very wrong, and she realizes she's not quite ready to let him go.
Reid and Becca have a lot to talk about, but since she's not listening, he's going to have to regain her trust another way—by bringing her most erotic fantasies to life. Making her surrender to pleasure just might be his most important mission.
I became a fan of Croix's work since reading her book, Let Me In. She writes with such emotion and startling honesty. Her characters are flawed but full of heart and passion that steam up the pages.
And Covert Seduction was everything that I hoped and expected.
Reid and Becca met at a wedding and their relationship grew, blossomed, and then--Reid, a Navy SEAL, left for Afghanistan, with the promise that he would return to her.
Six weeks later, Becca has given up on the man she thought she was falling in love with. Even though her heart is still emotionally attached to this perfect, wonderful man, she feels that it is time for her to move on. Obviously, she was wrong about the strong connection that they had shared. It must have meant way more to her than him.
Reid has just returned state side after a military Chinook crashed, killing several SEALs and brothers-at-arms. All the while, he has thought about Becca--the woman who has stolen his heart and he's determined to keep his promise. When he calls her after weeks of silence, he's shocked to hear that she won't be home waiting for him. Instead, she's going on a date with another man.
What is so obvious a story about a huge miscommunication between two lovers turns into a battle to save Becca's life. And while hiding Becca away, Reid must show her that she means everything to him.
