Book Description

Military ROMANCE Action Adventure
There are two things Navy SEAL Jazz Zeringue knows:
1) his black ops team will always have his back, and
2) there's nothing more enticing than a woman of mystery

When the best of intentions gets Jazz arrested overseas, he couldn't be more surprised to find Vivi Verreau ready to spring him out of jail. Obviously more than the civilian she claims to be, he's sure Vivi is hiding an agenda...and he's determined to stick by her side until he uncovers all her secrets.

A covert agent who shrouds herself in disguises, and who fearlessly jumps into dangerous situations without thoughts for her own safety, Vivi has no need for a protector. But if she is to have any hope of completing her most important mission, she'll have no choice but to recruit Jazz and his men.

And when everything explodes around them, they will need each other more than they ever imagined...

Editorial Reviews


"Gritty, powerhouse novel...a roller-coaster ride of non-stop action." -- Merline Lovelace, USA Today Bestselling Author

From the Author

This is a new edition of the previously titled The Protector, edited with cut scenes. I received my rights back and wanted to use all my original titles for my SEAL series.
SLEEPER (previously titled by publisher as Sleeping With The Agent)
(Her Secret) PIRATE (a SHORT story that is in an anthology titled SEAL of my Dreams)
WARRIOR (2014)

Please note that there are hot buttons for certain readers in this story. Illegal drugs and women trafficking issues, tied in with illegal weapon sales. War stuff. You know, things military men get into overseas. For this series, I researched a lot of World Health Organization reports and interviews of captured women and children and I wanted to help bring awareness of this heartbreaking and inhumane subject.

There are many non-profit organizations who are fighting this ongoing "war," such as Coalition Against Trafficking In Women, EXPAT and Deborah's Gate. These are my issues. In between all the humor and sexiness of my romances, these dark topics are always foremost on my mind, and thus, could be upsetting to those who want a lighter read. But in all things, there is always light. Love. Hope. And that's why I love writing military romantic suspense.

2.0 out of 5 stars A rant, not a rave. May 8, 2007
By kphopp
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's perhaps unfortunate that this book's turn came up at the same time my tolerance for sloppy publishing came to an end. Yes, I've read worse books, but have only now become fed-up enough to rant.

I read a short synopsis of this book and too quickly clicked the buy button- eager to lose myself in a good romantic-suspense series. I remembered my enthusiasm when I finished my first books by Cindy Gerard and Suzanne Brockmann. I ran-didn't walk (or maybe I skipped)- to get to the rest of their books. I hoped to have another 'find' with Gennita Low.

The premise of 'The Protector' was promising enough- hell, just say Navy SEAL and anything seems promising enough. But when I found myself again and again tripping through inconsistencies, typos and poor grammar, the promise became a simple, frustrated determination to just finish the damn thing so I could justify buying it. There were some other problems, too. Though they had a hot first love scene (believe me, you wait long enough for it) I otherwise didn't care about the lead characters. She is ridiculously reticent and nearly humorless and he is inexplicably whipped from the beginning. Also, there's a pretty depressing subject matter that darkens the story a wee too much for me.

At any rate, these last two complaints are subjective and wouldn't have warranted this entry. Here's my real beef. It's not with Ms. Low (whose work is still above some others in the genre) but with the publisher. Was there even an editor assigned to this manuscript? Or a proofreader? For example, the author repeatedly uses incorrect verb tense which, more annoyingly than a simpler grammar error, can change the explanation/direction, etc. of the story line if you're not reading carefully enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! A Great Romantic Suspense Navy SEAL Book! November 18, 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Gennita Low turns from CIA/espionage stuff to SEAL action adventure in her new book, The Protector.

The story line is different, though, from the usual SEAL plots. This one is set in Southeast Asia, with a half-Asian heroine.

Cajun-yummy Navy SEAL Jazz Zeringue finds himself in hot water when he tries to rescue a young girl from prostituting herself. Mistaken by Interpol as someone trying to take advantage of a child, he's taken into custody.

Vivi Verreau, the Interpol liaison, believes Jazz to be innocent and sets him free. Things get interesting when Jazz realizes that Vivi isn't just working for Interpol, but is also a GEM operative who will be working closely with his team.

It's fun to see the testosterone fly when eight SEALs are told they have to follow a woman's orders! Gennita Low's male dialogue seems very true to life and at times very amusing.

I really enjoyed the "guy" camaraderie in her story and it's fun to be reunited with Hawk (yum-yum), Cucumber, Dirk and Mink again, as well as several other members of the SEAL team.

If you've enjoyed Ms. Low's other books, I guarantee you won't be disappointed with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action and adventure. January 3, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Trying to save a woman child from at least a night or two of depravity, Jazz gets arrested, only to be saved by Vivi Verreau, a woman with more than one face and many secrets, ones Jazz is determined to learn. This is how he and his men find themselves recruited into Vivi's covert operation to stop a drug cartel in Asia and how Jazz finds himself falling in love with a lady as dangerous as he is.

**** Prepare to board a roller coaster when you start this book. Action and adventure pause only long enough to raise your blood pressure in other ways. Ms. Low is rapidly proving herself a force to be reckoned with in romantic suspense. ****

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Navy SEAL book from Gennita Low!! November 17, 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is awesome!! Another winner from Ms. Low who just keeps getting better and better.

Jazz Zeringue, Navy SEAL, is put behind bars for an act of kindness. A mysterious stranger, Vivi Verreau, comes to his rescue. Sparks fly from them moment these two meet.

Jazz wants to know more about the woman behind the Interpol liaison but he first has to gain Vivi's trust and Vivi has to see the man beyond the warrior in the uniform.

This book is a roller coaster ride. I just can't praise it enough. Anyone who likes romantic suspense with a Navy SEAL hero and a sympathetic heroine will love it, too!

I really anxious to read her next book - it will be Hawk's story. We've seen Hawk in at least two of her books (Into Danger and The Protector) and I can tell his story is going to be AWESOME!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Watch out for paid reviews! March 24, 2013
By amawar
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Luckily I didn't pay for this book and I feel sorry for anyone that has, I read it solely on the reviews who at the time were all rave at how well written it was.. The book has a good basis and had the potential to be great, unfortunately the lack of editing for grammar and military operations and terminology made this book awful. Doing even a little research would have given her the terms used by military men. Yes, SEALs are unconventional but this book shows someone that has absolutely no knowledge of the military. The amount of side stories was also tedious, this one book could easily have been turned into the or four books. Sorry but please don't waste your money on this book, this author is nothing like Susanne Brockmann who she is compared to, they aren't even in the same universe.
