Navy Seal Justice - Elle James

Navy Seal Justice
Elle James
Harlequin Intrigue, Apr 21 2015, $5.50
ISBN: 9780373698332

Upon leaving the Navy SEALs, James Monahan obtained a position at civilian Covert Cowboys, Inc.  When a SEAL Boat team-22 brother in arms “Rip” Cord Schafer sends him a message to protect Melissa in Biloxi, James drops everything to head to Mississippi

After receiving a text for help, FBI agent Melissa Bradley travels from San Antonio to a Biloxi Post Office to pick up a package and deliver it to her Ohio childhood friend Cord at the Shoot the Bull Bar in nearby Stennis.  In Biloxi James notices her and protects her from an assault.  Melissa fears the stranger until he says Cord sent him to keep her safe, but still tries to dodge him.  James’ new boss Hank Derringer informs him that a SBT-22 SEAL went missing during a live fire exercise at the Stennis Space Center Complex on the Pearl River.  James goes undercover inside his former unit while Melissa DOES likewise at the bar.  Soon they team up in search of MIA Cord; at the same time deadly traitors try to kill them.

The latest Covert Cowboys Inc. romantic suspense (see Triggered, Taking Aim, Bodyguard Under Fire and Cowboy Resurrected) is an action-packed atmospheric thriller in which armchair readers will believe they are accompanying the covert leads in Southern Mississippi.   Fast-paced, the intrigue comes before the romance as saving the SEAL, and taking down terrorists and their Quisling allies remain the main tasks.
