Today I am reviewing The SEAL’s Temptation: Wounded Hearts- Book 7 by USA Today Bestselling author Jacquie Biggar.
About the book
DEA agent Maggie Holt has been through hell and back.
After eighteen months undercover in a Mexican cartel, Maggie is broken. The kickass agent she once was, is gone, leaving her riddled with guilt and nightmares. Forced to take paid leave, Maggie accepts the offer of a vacation on the ranch of the man who’d rescued her from an almost certain death.
Frank Stein knows the signs of PTSD, he’d suffered the symptoms himself as Chief Petty Officer of SEAL Team Five. Honorably retired from duty, Frank has found peace at the family ranch and hopes it will do the same for Magdalena. Ever since he’d first met her when she was interrogating his buddy, Jared, Frank has been fascinated by the raven-haired beauty and wants the chance to see where their relationship could go.
Adam O’Connor is Maggie’s partner. He knows her. He loved her once and could again, if she’d let him in. But he’s also angry she took the chances she did by going undercover against orders. And now, things are different. She’s different.
When a right-wing militia group infiltrates the area, will DEA Agent Maggie Holt, her partner, Adam O’Connor, and ex-SEAL Chief Frank Stein be able to set aside their differences to stop them before someone dies? And who will Maggie choose, the handsome cowboy, or her charismatic DEA partner?
My review for the book June 26th 2021
This book hits the floor running but the author does give the background to the story and characters from this long running series.
The combination of action thriller and steamy romance is perfect for summer reading, and winter come to that, when a little extra heat is welcome. The story reflects the ongoing battle with drugs and cartels with a parallel story of rustling that directly involves the ranching community and in particular Frank Stein.
The job is tough enough for the DEA agents and relationships with colleagues makes it even more challenging when emotions get in the way. Those who now have families face additional concern for the safety of their loved ones and when an emergency situation effects one, it effects them all. For others such as Maggie Holt who is suffering from PTSD, learning to love and trust again seems impossible.
In the capable hands of Jacquie Biggar the story flows and leads to an unexpected and dramatic final chapter.
The next book in the series is due out soon and I am looking forward to reading the next adventure for these engaging characters.
