Peek Inside SEAL of Honor

When Navy Seal Gabe Bristow’s prestigious career comes to a crashing halt, he’s offered the chance to command a private hostage rescue team. It seems like a good deal—until he meets his new team of delinquents that includes the sexy, frustratingly impulsive Audrey Van Amee. She’s determined to help rescue her brother—or drive Gabe crazy. God help Gabe if he can’t bring her brother back alive, because he’s finally found something worth living for.

It’s a good thing Gabe Bristow lives and breathes the Navy SEAL credo, “the only easy day was yesterday,” because today, his life is unrecognizable. When his prestigious career comes to a crashing halt, he’s left with a bum leg and few prospects for employment that don’t include a desk.

That is, until he’s offered the chance to command a private hostage rescue team and free a wealthy American businessman from Colombian paramilitary rebels. It seems like a good deal—until he meets his new team: a drunk Cajun linguist, a boy-genius CIA threat analyst, an FBI negotiator with mob ties, a cowboy medic, and an EOD expert as volatile as the bombs he defuses. Oh, and who could forget the sexy, frustratingly impulsive Audrey Van Amee? She’s determined to help rescue her brother—or drive Gabe crazy. Whichever comes first.

As the death toll rises, Gabe’s team of delinquents must figure out how to work together long enough to save the day. Or, at least, not get themselves killed. Because Gabe’s finally found something worth living for, and God help him if he can’t bring her brother back alive.

Me gustó más de lo que esperaba.
Esta serie me la recomendó mi amiga Viri y como confío en su criterio le di el chance.

Este es un libro que tiene de todo un poco romance, acción y un poco de humor, lo que hizo que la lectura fuera amena, entretenida y ligera.

El romance fue un poco inst ...more

By Floripiquita January 09, 2018

A mí dame un SEAL y prácticamente pierdo el oremus. Soy así de fácil. Si encima me incluyes a alguien como Gabe, el protagonista, en una historia de suspense con muchas acción (muy bien narrada por parte de la autora, por cierto), pues ya me tienes ganada. Pena que la parte del hermano de la prota, ...more

Opening Line: “God help him if he didn’t make it to the airport by seven.”

Well hello lick-worthy cover! Romantic suspense lovers (and fans of Cindy Gerard) may want to check out Tonya Burrows' new HORNET series. Featuring a rag-tag band of (yummy) former military men who once they get the kinks wor ...more

Seal Of Honor es el primer libro de la serie Hornet de la autora Tonya Burrows y narra la historia de Gabe y Audrey.

He leido bastantes libros de este estilo, que combinan suspence y romance, por lo que tenia una idea bastante clara de lo que esperar de esta lectura, por eso no me esperaba que me sor ...more

By Wendy May 26, 2013

Lurved it! For all you Cindy Gerard fans, this will not disappoint. This has great dialogue, with little bits of humor thrown in; the plot's solid and easy to follow with great pacing that never lost it's momentum. Tonya Burrow's characters are full of personality and they all have their own demons ...more

4.5 - "Walk on the wild side with me." Stars!

Once in a while a book comes along, and after reading a chapter or two you know you are going to devour everything that the author has and will release in the future. Tonya Burrows is definitely in that category for me. After about 10 pages of SEAL of Hon ...more

By ♥Rachel♥ June 10, 2013

SEAL of Honor felt like a movie plot starring some hunky (or group of hunky actors, as is the case here!) actor parading through South America on a rescue mission. There was danger, lots of suspense and of course, a steamy romance!

Okay, so I normally don't write reviews - I just love to read & take advice from my fellow goodreaders. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Tonya Burrows Seal of Honor. I actually tweeted Tonya personally because I had read somewhere that this was her first published book. So I give it a 4 out o ...more

By Anita October 22, 2017

I really, really like this new series by Tonya Burrows. It has taken me a long time to finally start it because I was deeply disappointed by the last book, Too Wilde to Tame, in the "Wilde Security" series. This series is off to a good start, especially if you like your heroes flawed and your heroin ...more

By Anali December 30, 2014

Oh!!! Me encanto!!! Es una lectura rápida, intrigante, emotiva y con toques de humor. La trama de suspenso fue genial, llena de momentos inquietantes, violencia y pruebas de valentía. Otros momentos fueron super dulces y tiernos, obviamente, todos relacionados con Audrey y Gabe. Fueron una pareja su ...more

SEAL of Honor is a not-to-miss debut novel by Tonya Burrows. This up and coming author delivered an exciting story of ex seals that are die hard for life threatening adventures. I have a feeling this author will make her mark in the romantic suspense genre.

I've been lusting after this book since the second I spotted it's cover and mmmm yeah it so lived up to expectations. Burrows totally won me over with her ragtag group of men and one hell of a heroine.

My Rant:

I completely slept on this book. I don’t normally pick up books like this because I love immortal heroes and sometime I feel like no one could compare but this book has completely changed my perception and I can now claim that I love the human heros just as much as the immortal ones. (just d ...more
