After an unstable childhood, Zoey Knight landed in Juneau, Alaska, during high school, and has never left. Now in her early thirties, she lives a quiet life that includes part-time caretaker for a beloved father figure. Despite the stability, she occasionally wishes for more adventure. She gets more than she bargained for when a plane she’s in goes down in a remote stretch of wilderness—and the only other passenger is a man she’s crushed on for years.
Life as a SEAL doesn’t allow for much spare time, but Mark “Bubba” Wright still regrets not trying harder to visit his pop. Now it’s too late, and the guilt is heavy when he heads to Alaska for the reading of his father’s will. The only bright spot is finding a girl he knew in high school on the same tiny plane. The same woman, it turns out, who’s been taking care of his pop…a girl he crushed on in high school.
Struggling to survive in the Alaska back country isn’t the kind of second chance either envisioned, but relying on each other makes Zoey and Bubba’s rekindled attraction hotter than ever. Funny how puzzling out who might want them dead can bring a couple closer together…
** Securing Zoey is the 4th book in the SEAL of Protection: Legacy Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

This is a great story of childhood crushes and dreams coming true. I loved the relationship between Zoey and Mark right from the beginning. They had a connection that was believable. The scenes in the Alaskan wilderness were very informative and I could almost picture it in my head. This story was exciting, sexy and intense at times. The perfect romantic suspense!!
Zoey went to high school with Mark “Bubba” Wright and crushed on him big time. He never asked her out and then left Juneau right after graduation to become a SEAL. About 10 years later, they meet again on a charter flight back home for Bubba’s father’s funeral. When they are left stranded in the Alaskan wilderness, they have only each other, and whatever Bubba has stashed in his myriad of pockets. This leads to the adventure of a lifetime—the fight for their lives.
A lovely and giving woman, a seasoned and gorgeous SEAL, and a connection both instant and deep make for an edge of your seat romance.
Another fantastic read by Susan Stoker that leads on an epic reunion and a “who did it” theme! I adored these characters and I didn’t see that end coming. I also loved getting more glimpses of Phantom and now I am anxious for the next one in the series! Well done!
