Book Description

With only 48 hours back on home soil, United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen is desperate to spend every minute with her young son. So when heavy snowfall closes JFK airport and she misses her connecting flight, she's devastated. Until Navy SEAL Luke Gray offers to keep her company... and then does everything within his power to get her home.

Luke is back in the US on leave, waiting to hear the details of his next mission, and Saskia proves to be a pleasant distraction. And when he hears that she needs to get home to see her son, he's prepared to do anything to help the sexy single mom. Trouble is, he hadn't planned on falling for anyone, let alone a beautiful soldier about to return overseas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story September 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Fantastic story. I connected with Saskia and Luke right away. With only two days before she had to return overseas, Saskia is heartbroken when weather cancels her flight home to see her son. Her seatmate on the previous flight, Luke is drawn to the sexy soldier and promises that he will get her home. I could feel Saskia's love for her son and her desperation to make it home to see him. There was also her connection with Luke, something that was totally unexpected for her. She couldn't believe he would go to that much trouble for someone he didn't know. Luke started out as seeing Saskia as a pleasant distraction from his bad memories of the season. I loved the way he pulled out all the stops to get her home. I also thought that the way they were able to relate to each other was very well done, thanks to the way they were both military and therefore had common experiences and outlooks. Their trip from JFK to Buffalo was great, and the love scene was hot! I also loved the way that her family immediately made him welcome - also a very military thing to do. The conclusion to the story was oh so satisfying - I could picture it happening!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Navy Seal's Promise September 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition

THE NAVY SEAL'S PROMISE by author Soraya Lane is a September 2012 release.

United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen comes home just for 48hrs to spend Christmas with her son. But her connecting flight is grounded due to heavy snow.

Navy SEAL Luke Gray just met her on the flight but for some reason he can't see Saskia disappointed and vows to make her meet her son and fulfill her promise. Why does Luke want to do this for a starnger? Why would he want to make a stranger fulfill her promise to a loved one?

Then he calls in a favor and gets the army humvee to drive her home through the snow. And they have scorching chemistry between them and are attracted to each other. Well, on the way they do get stuck, and how do they spend the time in the hummer? Luke didn't even know that it was a secret fantasy of his to make love in the back of the military hummer!

The sensuality in the love scene is astounding. There are some choice words but as part of the dialogue it was well placed.

I loved it! It was fun with sassy dialogue. Very fast paced as I read it in just one sitting. Highly emotional.

Well worth reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Whoa. I really wanted it....I did. January 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I soooo wanted to like this book, I really did. The premise was cute, but it started off so bad that I couldn't finish the book. I think mainly my problem with it, which made it impossible to move past, is the premise just JUMPS out on the second page. There is no building to chapter build up would have been nice. The two characters are complete strangers, both in the armed service, have seen war, thus should be paranoid creatures by nature, instead they were already road tripping and having dinner together after talking for five minutes. Sorry, that just doesn't happen...even in literary fairytale land. The author missed the opporunity to add some backstory and depth to the characters by embracing military dysfunchions/traits.
The conversations were so blasé and extremely lacking that it made me not want to continue reading to see what all these raving reviews were about. The female lead was extremely boring and there was nothing about her that hinted that she was in the service. I LOVE armed service characters because they can be bold and strong yet vulnerable at the same time, but there was nothing about THIS one that remotely hinted that she was in the service. She was boring. Plain and simple. The male was okay, but his background wouldn't have permitted him to be so OPEN MY ARMS AND LET ME SWEEP YOU OFF YOUR FEET in five minutes. A REAL Seal, especially one in counterterrorism, would have been paranoid of a strange woman cuddling with him after he boarded the plane...there was nothing about him that reflected he was a Seal. I know a few Seals, from different generations even, but they are much the same in their attitudes, none of which Luke had.
Not that it's important, but I love unique names, but the author has to explain how to SAY it. That would have been nice instead of having to google it.
I would ATTEMPT to read more from this author, but this wasn't a promising start.

2.0 out of 5 stars Seriously? November 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the kind of book/short story that leaves you going "who does that?" I'm all about sexy encounters and spontaneity but this is bizarre. If they are supposed to be such moral, upstanding, war hero type people, well, then this doesn't make sense. Too racy for a the premise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed by Desere Steenberg October 1, 2012

Trying to get home to see your son ,getting stranded on the way with a sexy as sin Navy Seal ...sounds very appealing right well of course it does !

Soraya Lane is a new author to me and I have never read her work before so I in all honesty did not know what to expect as I have long been a fan of romance and also of Navy Seal/Military books but I have my selected authors that I know will incorporate enough military tit bits into the book to perfectly mix in with the romance.

I very quickly learned that Mrs Lane knows her stuff and also managed to transport me into the lives of two stunning characters Saskia and Luke were both powerful in their own right,independent and very likeable.The passion level between both was absolutely perfectly written and the scenes were vivid enough for me to escape to the world every woman dreams of.

I felt connected with all characters in the book which from my experience is not something just any author can manage,it takes a special kind of something for me to feel emotionally involved with what I am reading on the page and to really feel the level of emotion the author packed into her work.

Soraya managed this perfectly and so much more. I was entranced, and completely in love with every single second and the ending my oh my I could just die from happiness !

Well done Soraya keep it coming !
