Team Reaper has a new mission…
Train the first female SEALs
Navy SEAL Griffin Caldwell is not happy with his team’s top-secret mission, training the first female SEALs. Griffin’s determined to prove that his trainee Sherri Tate—a former beauty queen no less—doesn’t have what it takes to join the world’s most elite warrior’s club. Until he sees what she’s capable of, and even this hard-nosed SEAL has to admit she’s tough as nails. What he won’t admit to is the attraction sizzling between them.
Navy media officer Sherri Tate is more than just a pretty face. When she’s given the opportunity to achieve her dream of becoming a SEAL, she won’t let anything stand in her way, not even her arrogant trainer, who is too sexy for words.
When a dangerous mission lands Sherri and Griffin in the cross hairs of the world’s most feared terrorist, it’s going to take everything they have to come out with their lives—and hearts—intact.
Praise for Cindy Dees:
“A pulse-pounding adventure that will keep readers enthralled.”—RT Book Reviews for Hot Intent
“A well-crafted plot with plenty of action, love and danger...make this a must-read romance.”—RT Book Reviews for Undercover with a SEAL
The Navy SEAL action-romance gets a makeover in Dees's refreshing Valkyrie Ops series launch, which opens with three strong, capable women training for a chance to enter BUD/S, the intense physical training that weeds out average sailors from potential SEALs. Lt. Sherri Tate benefited from beauty pageant scholarships, but she's much more than a pretty face. The aspiring Olympic heptathlete is ready to serve her country and prove that women can integrate the SEALs, despite the attitude of the team that's sent to train her and the other female BUD/S candidates, including troop commander Griffin Caldwell. Unsurprisingly, Griffin doesn't believe that women can make a SEAL team or that they belong there. But he can't help but be impressed by Sherri's determination, grit, and impressive fitness, and gradually he realizes that Sherri and the other women deserve a legitimate shot. A mission gone awry brings Griffin and Sherri into closer quarters, and as a romantic connection builds, they must carefully navigate their relationship and keep it separate from Sherri's training. Dees's readers will delight in the double pleasure of smart, tough women succeeding in their field and pretty, witty heroines winning the hearts of military men.
