**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.

The story was great and I couldn’t put it down. But some of the storyline was hard to follow and I got lost overall it was ok!
Matthew and Caroline
What a book! If all the rest in this series are like this, I have to read them all. Flying on a plane that got highjacked Matthew met Caroline, the rest is just as exciting and full of danger. I can tell you Caroline is one tough chick!! You’ve got to read it, it’s so good.
Amazing beginning to a fantastic series
This book is out of this world. It is amazing, and the best part is that it’s a story that gets better each time you reread it. I’ve reread this so much I think I could just about recite it. Actually, the best part is that it’s the beginning of an amazing world- each story is better than the rest. Not only do they get more complex but the writing grows in each book. Every story in this series, her delta team series, and the police/firefighter series is connected and the way they are intertwined is beautiful and one of my favorite parts of her writing style. I could (and have) talk about these books endlessly. They make me feel happy in unprecedented times and calms me when my anxiety gets bad. These characters feel like friends and family to me that are always waiting to welcome me back. You will not be disappointed.
