**Same story...updated cover!**
Matthew "Wolf" Steel hated flying commercial. Luckily his job as a Navy SEAL meant he didn't have to do it very often. He'd been unlucky enough to be assigned a middle seat on the cramped jet, but fortunately for him, the woman next to him was willing to switch seats with him. Hoping for a relaxing flight, Wolf was pleasantly surprised at the good conversation and sense of humor the woman had as they flew 36,000 feet over the countryside.
When Caroline boarded the plane to Virginia to move across the country for her new job she never expected to be seated next to the hottest guy she'd ever seen. She also never expected he'd be so easy to talk to. She knew he'd never be interested in talking to her if he hadn't been trapped in the seat next to her, but it was a nice way to spend a long plane ride.
Neither Wolf nor Caroline were prepared for a terrorist hijacking of their plane, but if Caroline thought that would be the last time she'd see, or need, Wolf, she'd be sorely mistaken.
**Protecting Caroline is a stand-alone love story. It's Book 1 in the SEAL of Protection Series.**
Stoker's bland, short novel consists of story sequences that never cohere into a satisfactory work. Matthew "Wolf" Steel and his team of five other Navy SEALs are traveling on a commercial airline on a break from their missions. Wolf's seatmate, chemist Caroline, detects drugs in the beverages served to the passengers; she warns Wolf, who manages to foil a plot to hijack the plane, but her actions draw the attention of the terrorists' allies on the ground. When they come after her, Wolf and his team ride to her rescue, despite their only perfunctory (but intense) previous interactions. Stoker's writing is at its best when she describes the characters' emotions for one another, but those nuggets are not enough to redeem the overall low quality of the prose, pacing, and structure.

Great book, fast paced, well written. Highly recommend reading this! I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
Protecting Caroline has been in my iBooks library for a few days now. I was reading a different book but I so badly had this one on my mind to start reading. It was the best decision I ever made. I absolutely loved this book from the first word on the first page to the last word on the last page. It kept my attention 100% the whole entire journey. Made my heart race, made my heart fill with love and affection and made me laugh and cry or smile like a lunatic. I definitely would recommend everyone I know to read this delightful and captivating book! I most definitely am going to start reading the others in the series and any other books I can get my hands on by Susan Stoker!
Keeping it real - do some research
I understand that this is a work of fiction. However having said that, if your story takes place in the real world(not fantasy) its best to keep your facts true to life. Fact: seagulls do not live only by the sea! When untruths appear in fictional stories that are told in real world settings it taints everything else and ruins the story. I live in a small town, a very long way from the sea and we have lots of seagulls here. Do a little research using Google, it's fast and easy. Just a little constructive criticism.
