SAVED BY A SEAL by CAT JOHNSON
RELEASING SEPT 16 Add it to Your GOODREADS TBR
Zane Alexander was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but the rebellious bad boy traded it, along with his share of the family fortune, for a Navy SEAL trident and freedom from his controlling father.
Ten years later, Zane’s teammates are depending on him to secure the startup capital they need to open their security company and he’s gambling on his skills at covert operations to get it. For a million dollars he’ll fake interest in Missy Greenwood, the Senator’s daughter his father wants him to date in exchange for the investment.
When Missy is kidnapped and Zane and his team are sent to Nigeria to rescue her, there’s no more faking it when the danger and the emotions turn very real.

Through the dark lenses of his sunglasses, Zane surveyed the passersby streaming past the outdoor café table where he sat.
The sidewalk was busy, it being midday. The temperature was moderate for a winter day, and the sun was warm enough he’d chosen to sit outside to wait.
Would he recognize Missy? Maybe. Probably. He doubted she’d change all that much in ten years, save for the removal of the braces on her teeth.
He’d arrived early, so he leaned back in the café chair to wait wondering if having coffee would count as a date in his father’s eyes. He should probably take her to dinner too, just to be safe, he didn’t get recalled before then.
Glancing at the screen of his cell on the table, he confirmed there were no messages. Not from Missy. Not from the guys either since he had already talked to Jon on the drive over to visit briefly with his mother.
Most importantly, there was no message from command. He might just get this required first date out of the way yet. If Missy wasn’t fashionably late, that was.
“Zane.” Missy’s voice behind him brought his attention around.
He turned to see her smiling and looking both familiar and different at the same time. “Missy. Good to see you.”
Zane stood and reached out to take her hands in his while he leaned in to kiss her cheek. While doing so he didn’t miss the sophistication and maturity a decade had given her. She looked more like her mother than ever with her large designer sunglasses, and the no doubt high-dollar coat.
But the light breeze that pinked her cheeks and rustled the blond waves that just brushed her shoulders made her look like the teenager he’d known. So did the genuine warmth in her smile—something he’d never seen on her mother.
She squeezed his hands and he felt the chill in her fingers. “We can go inside to sit if you’d like. It’s too cool out here for you.”
“Actually, if you wouldn’t mind, could we get the coffee to go?” she asked. “I kind of wanted to take a walk around the shopping center and see what’s here.”
Zane’s brows rose with surprise. “Uh, sure. Let’s grab something to go.”
The shopping center? The strip mall filled with dollar stores and discount shops? If Zane wasn’t very aware that just the clothes on Missy’s back cost as much as his military pay for a single pay cycle he’d wonder if the Greenwoods were having money problems.
Then again, maybe Missy was more like him than he’d assumed. Maybe she’d traded her access to the family fortune in exchange for freedom.
Either way, her request upped the interest factor on a date he’d assumed would bore him to death.
