 A Marine's Promise
In another life, I'd been a ballroom champion and reality star Selena Marcil had been my partner. Our lives have gone our separate ways. Nothing left but childhood dreams and memories of first love. 
Until I received the offer. 
A letter from our former master coach bribing me with five thousand dollars a week to appear on one season of the hit show, Dancing under the Stars. My impulse is to reject it in a heartbeat. I have no desire for fame or fortune.
Except I made a promise once. 
To a dying man. My best friend. I swore to him that I'd take care of his wife and kids if he passed away on the battlefield. 
Fifty thousand dollars. For humiliating myself on national television, spending time with the woman who'd left me, losing my privacy, becoming the laughing stock of the Marine Corps. One season, ten weeks, a small sacrifice to make for the man who'd saved my life. Hand me my dance shoes. 
I'm in. SSgt Bret Lord, USMC

 I’ll be honest with you—I’m no hero. 

Sure, the media tries to brand every Navy SEAL as some kind of Batman dressed in cammies. There’s even a line in one of our cadences: Superman is the man of steel, he ain’t no match for Navy SEAL. You’ve seen the movies—we’re infallible, invaluable, invincible. But that night, the one you read about in the papers … all I really wanted to do was get lucky.

One night with an Aruban whore, no strings attached. I picked her out of a lineup—wild, dark hair, long legs and a crooked smile. Afterwards, I relaxed back onto the creaky cot, thankful for the blissful moments she gave me when I actually forgot for a second the faces of my buddies who died because I made the wrong call, the tears of the children I couldn’t save, and the eyes of the enemies I slaughtered during their last seconds of life. 

But before I left, her hazel eyes peered into my soul. She whispered in a distinct Californian accent, “My name is Analía "Annie" Hamilton. I’m an American citizen. I was kidnapped on spring break five years ago. You’re my last hope. Please save me.”

One desperate plea. This wasn’t a Hollywood blockbuster or a New York Times best-selling thriller. I knew this time there was no room for excuses, no margin for errors. I had one chance to put on the cape and be her hero.

Aria—I teach mermaid fitness at a ritzy hotel next to the Naval Amphibious Base. I know better than to let one of those famous frogmen chase my tail. But in a moment of weakness, I submit to Erik, a tattooed badass Navy SEAL. After one night of incredible passion, I can’t stop thinking about his cocky ways and his dirty mouth.

Then I get the opportunity to train to be the first female Navy SEAL.

When I show up on the first day of training, I’m horrified to realize that Erik is my BUD/S instructor. He’s the only person who stands in the way of me achieving my dream.

I’m no quitter. He can taunt me, tease me, and run me ragged, but I’ll never ring that bell.

Erik—Aria is the most incredible woman I’ve ever met. She won the gold medal for synchronized swimming, and she looks like a little mermaid the way she moves underwater. Once I find out that the sexy redhead is teaching aquatic classes next to my base, I vow to do anything to make her mine.

After our mind-blowing night together, she vanishes. I ask around and learn she went away to train. I assume it’s for another synchro competition.

I’m dead wrong.

She shows up in BUD/S as part of the first class to let in women. And I’m her instructor.

There’s no way in hell I will lower the standards of my Team to please the brass and make a political statement.

It doesn’t matter how much I want her because she’s forbidden to me now. She will obey my every command.

She can try to pass hell week but she will fail.

I’m a Navy SEAL, a Triton, a god of the sea.

And she will never be part of my world.
