Fletcher "Mustang" Call is a dedicated SEAL and a committed Dom. The one thing he isn't is relationship material. A tragedy in his past killed his desire for more than a good time on leave and a little D/s play. Until April Coe walked into his life, a woman unlike any he’s known. Problem is, she’s as vanilla as they come.
April was warned about Mustang, a man as wild and free as his call sign, so she doesn’t expect him to stick around for long. That’s okay, she'll enjoy the great sex while she can. At least, she thought it was great. When she senses her sexy bronco is holding back, she has to decide whether to ride the mustang a little harder or set him free.

For SEAL Fletcher “Mustang” Call a past tragedy defined the present. Until April Coe walked into his life.  Warned about Mustang, a man as wild and free as his call sign, she knows he won’t stick around for long. Then life takes a tricky twist for both of them.

BDSM Erotica featuring Navy Seals

This story is mostly about the relationships or lack of relationships Fletcher "Mustang" Call has. After having his heart broken he has turned his emotions off and has been going from woman to woman for the last 15 years. Now a Navy SEAL based in Virginia Beach and part of a 4-16 man team. His best friend Charlie "Iceman" Harris has been trying to get him to change his ways, can meeting April change him?

On leave due to an injury, Navy SEAL Tony Nero heads home for a little R&R and some Fourth of July fun. When his buddy’s widow Cass Phillips picks him up at the air station, Tony figures he’s in for a sexually frustrating few days. He’s had the hots for the blonde siren for years, but his best friend won her heart first. Even though Ray’s been gone more than a year, Tony bets Cass isn’t interested in any man. Not him. And especially not another SEAL.

Cass has a bone to pick with longtime friend, Tony. After her husband died, he was the closest thing her little boy had to a father figure. His visits stopped abruptly and her son doesn't understand why. Neither does she. She's also unable to quench her growing need for the tough and tender man. She's already loved and lost one SEAL, but that doesn't stop her from burning for Nero.

Is it getting hot in here?

This story was a great fit int he SEALs Going Hot anthology/box set! It was hot, but it was also a great love story. Lots of plot and plan, with a large cast of characters! I really enjoyed reading this one and am looking forward to book 4 in the set also written by Cerise! And now a bit about the story...

Tony Nero is heading home for the 4th of July holiday on a 4 day shore leave. He is part of a SEAL team, but was injured on a mission a few months ago and his arm hasn't fully recovered yet. His future is full of uncertainties. As the helo is he riding on out to his families place circles he searches for her from above. Will she be there? Cassandra Phillips married his best friend Ray a few years ago. Only problem is Ray was killed in action about a year ago and he has loved her since he first met her. How will he conceal his feeling yet again...

Favorite passage: "Fast? Not on your life. I'm gonna love you so long, you won't be able to spell your name."

SEAL sniper, Dane, is known as Eagle Eye for
his deadly aim. He’s also good at hiding his identity as a gay Dom.
Childhood trauma has led him to live and play deep in the closet. Then a
bullet to his thigh lands him on leave and in the incredible hands of a
hot ensign assigned to get him back in the field.

Will Chadwick is happy to finally be living as an openly gay man in the
Navy. And as a physical therapist, he’s used to coaxing bad asses like
Dane into doing their PT. Harder for him is resisting the temptation that
Dane presents. He’s a patient and hiding his sexuality. A prudent man
would keep his distance.

But Dane doesn’t know how to quit, and seducing Will has become a mission.
The budding sub in Will can’t resist the Dom’s commands. If he could only
make Dane see that being a man doesn’t mean hiding his true self.

The Eagle has landed!

Book 3 in the box set! This book focuses in around two sailors, one a SEAL and one a physical therapist. Both admitting to something they want and haven't shared before. While one struggles with overcoming the ideas his father planted in his mind, the other refuses to move backward. And now a bit about the story...

Lieutenant Dane Sawyer was taught at a young age to be a man, do what a man would do, or else both he and his mother would get the betting of their lives. So he played football, dated a new girl each week, and became a Navy SEAL - nothing more manly than a SEAL, right? Except he had no interest in women. Being a SEAL he felt it best to hid this from his team even though DADT had been repealed. Then after ending up in PT due to enemy fire he meets Ensign Will Chadwick. A whole new mission starts for him as he is out of active duty and bored out of his mind. Can his need for happiness surpass the messages his father beat into him?

Favorite passages:
- He couldn't believe he'd been ordered to report for physical therapy here at Walter Reed. He was a SEAL, damn it all. He didn't need coddling.
- Sawyer was a SEAL, after all, with a memory like an elephant and the single-minded determination of a shark.
- Besides, that was life int the military, ninety-five percent boredom and five percent adrenaline-pumping action.

As a Navy SEAL, Michael “Midas” Baudine trains countless hours to prepare for combat. But a man can’t train for luck, so preserving his “Midas touch” good fortune is something he takes seriously, and he'll go to extreme measures to get his team on-board with his pre-mission, luck-assuring routines. He accepts a challenge from his team—get the sexy but uptight teacher, who blocks his advances at every turn, to the rock concert a week from today, and they’ll comply.

With a crazy rock star dad and top supermodel mom, Angie Summers was once a wild child but, wanting more out of life, has done her best to live under the radar of fame. She’s even assumed a secret identity and found a job teaching at Naval Station Rota, Spain. Her attempt at a “normal” life is quickly turned on its ear when a hot-as-hell Navy SEAL sweet talks her into a date she’ll never forget and may eventually regret.

While spending time with the muscle-bound sailor unleashes Angie’s need to let the wild child out to play, which could threaten her anonymity, Midas finds himself on the precipice of breaking the first rule of luck—never fall for a woman.

Can't buy me love v 2.0...

Michael "Midas" Baudine and Angie Summers star in this fast paced romance surround a bet...  Like most of the romantic comedies we watch surround bets you can just imagine how this one goes... but I loved the fact that Midas really was a nice guy at heart and not a love 'em and leave 'em type he portrayed.  And now a bit about the story...

Midas has been trying to capture Angie's attention for over a year.  She is a prim school teacher and always shoots him down right away.  There is a concert on base next week and he is hoping the thrill of going will work.  Plus his "midas" touch of luck is important to him and he wants his SEAL team to follow all his traditions.  They tell him if he can get Angie to the concert they will... now the only problem is how to get her there and keep her there.  On the flip side Angie hasn't partied in a long time and is afraid to let the real her out.  Can Midas touch her just right and bring her back to life?

Favorite passages:
 - Despite touchdown in less than an hour to extract Ms. Purdy from her captors, the men appeared focused by relaxed.  Just another day at the office.
 - "But as a woman of science who understands the physiology of the human body, I can tell you with one hundred percent certainty that not having pipe laid in your hoo-ha every once in a while can be extremely detrimental to your health."  She raised her glass as though to toast than drank.
 - The strong desire to bed the SEAL who thought the sun rose and set on his ass and then knocking him down to the size of a handheld bobble head tempted like crack cocaine to a recovering drug addict.  Clearly she still had more work to do in the Mother Teresa department.
 - He had a reputation... Would reality match his infamy?

Brenna Zinn

I remember reading about Texas in an Illinois grade school and thinking I probably would never see the great state where real cowboys ride their horses to work every day and everyone wears western hats and boots. Then again, I never dreamed I would elope in Gibraltar with a Navy man who hailed from the Lone Star state. But here I am, smack dab in the middle of Texas, still married to the same wonderful man and boasting not only the greatest daughter on the planet, but three dogs that are as big as long horns.

In between grade school and now, my journey through life has taken me all over the United States, as well as many places throughout the world. Using my travel experience as a guide and peppering in interesting characters I’ve met along the way, I love nothing better than weaving tales of romance and leaving readers yearning for adventures of their own.
