**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.

I absolutely loved this book and 100% recommended it. If you love brave and strong heroines and some strong and protective alphas this is definitely the story for you.
Couldn’t get through 2 chapters
It’s a great idea for a plot but the writing was so repetitive, I couldn’t get through two whole chapters.
I loved this book!
There are some grammatical errors that need to be fixed, however, I don’t think that they hurt the story.
I loved the characters in this book. I mean who doesn’t love an alpha male SEAL that respects women? The heroine, Caroline, is a strong woman in her own right. I love that the writer made her a strong woman instead of a helpless woman that just needed rescuing.
This story contains a lot of action and some romance. There was a good balance between the action and romance.
I highly recommend this book!
