The Protective Warrior by Cami Checketts

A daughter escaping, a Navy SEAL sent to protect her, and the beautiful island that might prove more dangerous than her father.

Ally, daughter of the Duke of Gunthry, has spent her life terrified of her father and dreams of the day when she can escape his tyrannical rule.

When her mum helps her escape to the beautiful island of Kauai, Ally thinks she’s found paradise and maybe more with the handsome River who keeps crossing her path.

But there are unexpected enemies lurking in the shadows. And no matter how tough River seems, no one can withstand the army her father will send when he discovers her location.

River Duncan is part of an elite security task force of ex-Navy SEALS. Little does he know his first assignment might prove irresistible to resist and protect. When he finds himself falling for the fun-loving Ally he plans to resign his position so they can join forces in their common goal of fighting human trafficking. River has never underestimated the enemy before, but is he fully prepared to protect and love Alexandria Gunthry?

Will River’s protection and Ally’s love be enough to conquer a lifetime of fear and responsibilities? Or will they be forced to give up on their dreams in the face of her sadistic and powerful father?

“This seat taken?” a nicely timbered voice asked.

Ally glanced up and took her time looking over him before she answered.

He arched an eyebrow and smiled. “Did I pass muster?”

“How do you do?”

He cocked his head to the side. “I’m good. You?”

Ally laughed. “I’m glad you’re good, but ‘how do you do’ is more like ‘hello.’”

“Hello.” He smiled, and ooh, he was cute.

“So I do pass muster?” He moved to sit down.

Ally held out a hand. “Not so quick, chump.” His dark hair was short, military or missionary short, but it was nice—clean and thick and would probably feel good beneath her fingertips. His face was lean and proportioned with a firm jaw, a straight nose, and smooth, tanned skin. She liked the crinkles next to his eyes and mouth as he smiled at her, awaiting her perusal. He’d had some experiences in life, good and bad, if those crinkles told her anything. He was a big guy—broad and at least six-three with lots of lovely muscles peeking out from underneath his T-shirt and board shorts. It was his eyes that finally convinced her to accept his request. Their deep brown sparkled at her, though she could tell he could be very serious.

He tapped the edge of his tray. “How about now?”

“Okay, no harm in sharing a table.” She winked at him and picked a bite of rib off the bone, savoring the tang of the barbecue sauce and the heartiness of the meat. No, she never took men home, only selectively dated those who passed her intuition test. She trusted her intuition completely and she could have fun with this hot, tough-looking guy.

He smiled and dug into his brisket. “Mm. This place is good.”

“One of my favorites.”

“Have you been on the island long?”

She wished. “A few days.”

“Oh. You act like a local.” He ate a bite of beans and took a drink of water before asking, “Which part of England are you from?”

“London. Kensington, to be exact. You?”

“Long Island originally. I like your accent a lot.”

“I’ve been in the States for over six years, so it’s faded.”

“Don’t let it fade.”

Sneak Peek of Stoneking by Donna Migliaccio

Excerpt from Chapter 7

The figure stood in silence as the women peeled away layer after layer of fur-lined garments. It extended first one foot, then the other, so that the thick boots could be slipped off, providing a glimpse of finely turned ankles and delicate slippers. It held its arms out while the mitts were
removed, exposing gloves of soft red leather beneath. These, too, were taken off, revealing pale, shapely hands with slender, beringed fingers. A rich, flowery perfume filled the air. The old aunt,
stooped as an ancient stork, turned back the heavy hood, slid off the cloak and drew away the white veil shielding the face.

Someone caught their breath.

“Lord Gemeta,” said Sir Velios, unmistakable pride in his tone, “may I present the princess

The princess dipped into a deep curtsey, but her head remained erect and her hazel eyes locked on Kristan with the unwavering stare of an archer aiming at a target. Her full lips curved into a perfectly shaped smile. “Greetings, Lord Gemeta.”

Kristan bowed. “Welcome to Fandrall.”

She put out her hand, and Kristan had no choice but to take it. “My father sends his best wishes.” Her voice was light and melodic. “He apologizes for his presumption in sending me without notice.”

As well he might, Kristan thought, but he had resolved to keep his temper in check. “I’m honored that he trusts me with his daughter’s safety and well-being. I hope your journey wasn’t too difficult.”

Jelena laughed, showing fine white teeth. “Fandrall’s mud took us by surprise. My wagons are mired to the axles.”

Her fingers were still in his, making his flesh creep. “I can send men to help dig them out.”

“No need; I have plenty of men. Sir Velios will return in the morning to supervise them.” She flicked a look at the knight, and Velios blushed to the ears.

Jelena released Kristan’s hand at last and began to introduce her retinue. Aunt, ladies and knights alike were bedraggled and clearly exhausted from their journey, in sharp contrast to Jelena’s vitality and immaculate appearance.

Kristan studied her with an impartial eye. She was a head taller than him, with a proud bearing that made her even more imposing. Her face was a perfect oval, the skin without blemish, the features even and pleasing. Her dress was the color of fresh cream, carefully fitted to emphasize her full breasts and hips. Around her narrow waist she wore a honey-gold sash embroidered with pearls. Her rich brown hair was arranged high on her head in an intricate pattern of loops and coils, crowned with a circlet of gold etched with vines and embellished with more shining pearls.

She’s beautiful, Kristan thought, but it’s a studied beauty, as if she’s practiced every smile before a mirror. Heather’s unaffected grin rose in his memory, but he forced the vision aside and busied himself introducing his men. The princess acknowledged their beaming faces and deep bows with a polite nod, but her gaze kept returning to Kristan, roaming over his face, his hair, his
clothing. Her scrutiny made him want to squirm.
