Cookie “Hunter” Knox was good at his job, infiltrating behind enemy lines was one of his specialties. His SEAL team relied on him to do his job, just as he relied on them to do theirs. Ever since two of his teammates found a woman that completed them, their dangerous Ops seemed a bit more intense. Cookie knew if he had a woman who belonged to him, he’d never let her go. Little did he know the SEAL team’s latest mission to Mexico would change his life forever.
Fiona Storm resigned herself to the fact that it was highly unlikely she would make it out of the jungle alive. Kidnapped by human traffickers, abused, and without family or friends looking for her, Fiona knew wishing for rescue was as realistic as having a big, juicy hamburger fall from the sky. Unbeknownst to Fiona, the SEAL team, including Cookie, were on the way, but their assignment didn't consist of rescuing her.
**Protecting Fiona is the 3rd book in the SEAL of Protection Series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s recommended you read the books in order to get maximum enjoyment out of the series.

Love this third installment!
As a victim of rape this story was very accurate as to what a person goes through. Most rape stories never tell about the aftermath of such abuse. This is something she will live with for the rest of her life but she can live a normal life with the right person. This author did not shy away from this unpleasant topic like so many others do. We need more like this showing a man being supportive towards victims.
I was disappointed in this book.
It is obvious the writer didn’t do enough research regarding the military and SEAL teams. I understand writers take liberties, but the basics should be right.
In the prologue it states “Wolf is the unofficial leader of the group.” My husband retired from the Navy after 20 years of service. There is no such thing as an unofficial leader. All of the military branches have an official chain of command.
Also, SEAL Teams work in “teams”. There would NEVER EVER be a time where a lone SEAL would go on a hostage rescue alone. Anything could have happened to him and they never would have known. This storyline still could have worked if the whole team was sent in or if they sent four SEALS in and two were left behind to pilot the helicopter for the evacuation.
It was also very irresponsible for the team to treat her at the safe house in Texas. The SEALS should have flown back to base and taken her to the military hospital. She suffered needlessly because they didn’t have the medicine to help with her drug withdrawal. Not to mention, she was raped repeatedly by numerous men. She needed to be tested for pregnancy and STDs as well as anything else she could have caught being kept in unsanitary conditions. A counselor could have spoken to her while she was in the hospital. Again, taking her to a hospital would still have worked with the storyline and been the responsible thing to do.
I was disappointed in this book. The author should have done better research.
Great story about a horrible crime on humanity
This story brings light to a despicable crime being perpetrated on mostly women around the world. I would give it five stars except for the constant use of people’s names instead of using pronouns in conversations and dialog.
