About this ebook

A tough special forces operator who’s never run from a fight. A woman about to give him the biggest battle of his life.

Marine Raider Jake Skinner has a nose for trouble. He never expected to find it in a beautiful woman adrift at sea. But once he has her in his arms, he knows he’s never letting her go.

Caroline only had one rule when it came to dating – no military men. When the sexy Marine pulls her from the ocean, her resolution goes to war against his resolve to break through her walls – and goes against her own secret longings.

As a drug cartel sets its sights on Caroline, Jake is determined to move heaven and earth to keep her safe. But if Caroline can’t learn to trust her heart, it could spell the end for them both.

Meet the men of Alpha Squad. Protective, strong-willed, and tough, they go hard after what they want. And when they set their sights on a woman, they’ll use every weapon in their arsenal to make her theirs. Each book in this series is a fast, steamy read, full of pulse-pounding action.

I really enjoyed the introduction to this author’s new series set in North Carolina. Jake “Psych short for Psychic” Skinner is the Element Leader of the Second Marine Raider Battalion’s Alpha Squad. There are five men in his squad and I hope each of them will get their own story. While training, Jake sees a human where one shouldn’t be. She’s curled on top of beacon in the ocean. This is how Caroline and Jake meet. They have some amazing chemistry, but due to her father, she says she doesn

Caroline's decision to go to a party with Brent, a man she just met, may not have been the best one. When he leaves to her own devices, after awhile she is annoyed and goes in search of him. She probably should have stayed on deck, as she hears something she should not. When her and Brent are brought back up topside, the guy decides to kill them both, Brent is killed and she jumps in the water. Jake finds Caroline clinging to a buoy, rescuing her, he feels he should be there to protect her.

Hunted is the first book in the Marine Raiders Romance series. This had everything I love about military romantic suspense, heat and steam, action, romance, a strong female and an alpha male that tires to protect but also knows how to treat her right. The author nailed it with the way Jake and his team are with each other, they're family and not afraid to joke around but have each others back through it all. I can't wait to read more in this series. Jake drawn to Caroline is determined to break down the walls she has around her heart and keep her safe but it isn't going to be easy, she has a no dating military guys rule she determined to keep. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

About the author

Allyson Charles lives in Colorado. She’s the author of sexy and funny small-town romances, including the Pineville Romance series and The Forever series. A former attorney, she happily ditched those suits and now works in her pajamas writing about men’s briefs instead of legal briefs. When she’s not writing, she’s probably engaged in one of her favorite hobbies: napping, eating, or martial arts (That last one almost makes up for the first two, right?). One of Allyson’s greatest sources of happiness is that she now lives in a city that has a Cracker Barrel.

Allyson Charles also writes steamy historical romances under the name Alyson Chase, and paranormal romances under the name A. Caprice.
