About this ebook

An enemies-to-lovers vampire romance by bestselling author S. B. Alexander

Human against vampire. The hunter against the hunted.

I kill bloodsuckers for a living.

The job should be simple—capture the target and collect the money. But when I draw my enemy out in the open, I’m blindsided by his mesmerizing green eyes and snarky wit. Sam Mason is the type of vampire my mom warned me about—the kind who will seduce you with his easy smile and arrogant charm.

Yet, I know better.

The Vampire Navy SEAL oozes mayhem and sex appeal. Sam’s deadly swagger puts me on edge and sets my nerves on fire. If I mess with him, he’ll annihilate me in a second. That thrills and terrifies me at the same time.

A million red flags are telling me to run. But my sisters lives are in jeopardy, and the only way to save them is to grovel for Sam’s help.

Is it possible to push the flames to the back burner and trust an enemy who can take anything he wants?

The Hunted is an enemies-to-lovers, paranormal, military romance and the first book in the new Vampire Navy SEAL spin-off series. Layla and Sam’s story is a slow burn romance with a feisty heroine, snarky banter, action, suspense, off-the-charts steamy times, and ends on a cliffhanger.

Praise for The Hunted:

“Author S.B. Alexander certainly knows how to pitch a romance to keep her readers turning page after page. Alexander’s intricate portrayal of the tough and hard-edged Layla, and her journey as she slowly loses her inhibitions around the tempting vampire SEAL, offers readers a chance to really sink into the tension all around her. So when the pair finally come together, the payoff is all the more enjoyable and emotive in all the right ways. A highly recommended read for PNR fans everywhere.” K.C. Finn – Readers’ Favorite


 “Captivating and action-packed, this military vampire book is sexy, addictive, and a truly imaginative paranormal experience that hooked me from the beginning. Sam and Layla’s chemistry is off the charts, and you’ll be cheering and laughing as they realize how truly perfect they are for each other.” J.A. Owenby, International Bestselling Author


“Gripping and captivating, S.B. Alexander’s The Hunted is unputdownable, a riveting story that had me hooked from page one!” Gina Azzi, Bestselling Author of the Boston Hawks Hockey Series


“I love seeing characters have true chemistry with each other. I felt that with Sam and Layla; their banter and passion were amazing. S.B. Alexander’s The Hunted was a wonderful book that kept me turning pages, wanting to find out what was going to happen next! There was a bit of mystery and intrigue sprinkled throughout the plot, and I cannot wait to see the series be continued!” Rylanne Burdette – Readers’ Favorite


“Author S.B. Alexander knows how to write a story with authenticity, an incredible plot, relatable characters, and a charm that makes readers fall in love. Out of all the novels that I have read of hers, Sam is by far is my favorite character. He is sharp, intense, and has an undeniable allure. Layla is feisty, a little too stubborn, and almost too strong headed, but they make a great couple. The bantering is hilarious, they butt heads quite often, and the dialogues between them had me thoroughly entertained. The story itself is extraordinarily good and actually makes sense, something you don’t find often in the paranormal romance genre.” Rabia Tanveer – Readers’ Favorite

The Hunted by SB Alexander is an enemies-to-lovers paranormal romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Blake Lockheart and Cecily Foster. This is the first book in the Vampire Navy SEAL: Sam & Layla series. This is the second series of Susan's that I have read and it won't be my last. I am really enjoying the slow burn relationship between Sam and Layla. I liked that we got both of their points of view throughout the book. It really brought the story to life. The book ends on a cliffhanger which wasn't a surprise since it's the first book in the series. I can't wait for the next book The Predator to be released on April 19, 2022 Blake and Cecily did a great job on the narration. They both really know how to bring a story to life. I look forward to reading more of their work in the future. I would recommend this book if you like enemies-to-lovers romance, paranormal romances, military romances, slow burn romances, or romantic suspense. Audiobook Obsession Reviewer

Amazing Adventures . . . Layla Aberdeen has been raised as a vampire hunter who kills them for pay. But when she finds Sam Mason, he is charming along with his arrogance, and his smile is guaranteed to melt all women who confront him. He is a powerful Vampire Navy SEAL who is deadly but sexy. When Layla needs his help for her sisters -- Rianne in a zombie state that Sam could remove, and Jordyn being held captive, tortured by Vera and possibly facing death -- she will have to cooperate with him. Can she resist his charm? Will he want something more from her? And what is happening to her since she bit the vampire and now keeps passing out and getting visions of the future? Should she tell Sam about Roman, because the SEALs had a better chance helping to rescue Jordyn? And what did it mean that when young Abbey touched Rianne’s cheeks, she saw her killing her sister Layla? This story line has so much going on. It will pull the reader right in and never let go! Get started on this series and meet all of the various characters. Then prepare yourself for the ride of your life!

Holy Cow, that was AWESOME!!! When I read The Vampire Navy Seals Collection of Jo & Webb I freaking loved it!! I was so crazy about so many of the characters! Jo and Webb’s story was to die for! But when it was announced that Sam’s (Jo’s twin brother)story was coming out, I was ecstatic!! Well it was 10X better than I could have imagined!!! Well this slow-burn, enemies-to-lovers, vampire and vampire hunter is SPECTACULAR!!! Just the right amount of tension, steam and romance make up this addictive PNR!! I need the next book NOW!! It ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, so I’m dying for book two!! Sam is sooo SEXY and his bond with Layla, the Hunter, is crazy forbidden and therefore so so HOT!!! I listened to the audiobook and the narrators do a fantastic job at bringing the author’s words to life!! This book is like 10 star worthy!!!! If the idea of Military Vampires who protect human life and the character’s romantic stories sounds good to you, then you need to read (or listen to) this series!! First Jo and Webb, and then Sam and Layla!!! You will love all the action, suspense and steamy romance!!!
