A new standalone romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Lynn Raye Harris. Sexy, action-packed, and thrilling!

Sold to the highest bidder…

For the past fourteen years, Princess Antonella Rossi has been a virtual prisoner. She has no friends, no fun, and she’s not allowed to leave her aunt and uncle’s Virginia compound without an escort.

But today is her wedding day. A rich sheikh has bought her virginity, and with it her freedom. Any hope of independence Ella’s ever cherished will disappear the instant she faces him across the altar. With time running out and the wedding party gathering, Ella seizes the opportunity to run as far and fast as she can.

Navy SEAL Cash “Money” McQuaid isn’t looking for trouble, but trouble always seems to find him. This time trouble is five foot four and wearing a wedding dress. Rescuing a runaway princess has consequences though, and with his face plastered on the evening news and his career on the line, he realizes there’s only one way out of this mess—he has to marry her!

It’s a marriage in name only, just until he can clear his name and win Ella the freedom she seeks. But shacking up with a gorgeous virgin isn’t as easy as it seems, especially when the sparks snapping between them are hotter and more dangerous than anything Cash has ever experienced. By the time he realizes it’s too late to resist his virgin bride, an unseen enemy is intent on taking her away from him.

Cash is gonna need all his skills—and his friends on the Hostile Operations Team—in order to rescue his princess bride and give her the happily-ever-after she deserves.

The Hostile Operations Team is a covert military Black Ops unit. Their motto is Where None Dare. H.O.T. operators come from all branches of the military. The only criteria for membership: they must be the best of the best!

He was a dangerous man in more ways than one, only the danger was to her heart. Her poor, unloved, starving-for-affection heart.


With a runaway princess bride, a Navy SEAL determined to protect her no matter the cost, and a sizzling romance in the midst of non stop action and suspense; HOT SEAL Bride gives the marriage of convenience trope a whole new meaning!

Princess Antonella Rossi has lived a sheltered existence devoid of any love and affection. Having her hand in marriage and virginity sold to the highest bidder by her power hungry aunt and uncle in order to fix their money issues seems to be what finally sends her over the edge. Unable to imagine her life married to a sheikh old enough to be her father, she does the only thing she can do…she runs.

Cash “Money” McQuaid is a notorious womanizer that hasn’t spent more than a few nights with the same woman for fear of her attachment. But when he sees a beautiful woman in a wedding dress being manhandled into a vehicle on the side of the road on his way to his fishing trip, he’s not able to walk away. Unfortunately, helping her is a lot more than he thought he was signing up for when he realizes the woman is missing royalty with a price for her return and suddenly he’s become enemy number one.

I thought I’d struggle to like Ella since sheltered and naive virginal heroines aren’t usually my cuppa. But there was this core of strength in Ella that I couldn’t help but connect with. She’s sheltered but she’s not naive. She’s not a pushover and she’s not afraid to go after what she wants. Cash struggles to resist the temptation quickly brewing between them and Ella certainly wasn’t shy about pushing him past his sanity. I loved her unintentional quirky humor and her tenacity even in the most dire of circumstances.

HOT SEAL Bride was another fantastic addition to the series from one of my absolute favorite romantic suspense authors. Her books are my crack and I swear the woman could write the phone book and I’d read it. The sexual tension between Ella and Cash was absolutely delicious, add into the mix a sizzling slow burn and plenty of action, and I was in book heaven!
