About the Book by Petie McCarty
The SEAL’s Angel is the third story in the Mystery Angel Romance [MAR] series. Each stand-alone love story in the series has an angel hidden in the plot, and the angel’s identity isn’t revealed until the finale — unless the reader figures it out first.
In The SEAL’s Angel, Navy SEAL Sean MacKay’s teammate is murdered after stealing a deadly nerve-gas formula from Syrian terrorists. Naval Intelligence believes MacKay’s teammate was a traitor and shipped the stolen formula to his sister in the states for safekeeping. MacKay is given orders to find the sister before the terrorists do and to retrieve the stolen formula at all costs.
Foreclosure looms for Cory Rigatero as she fights to keep her rustic resort near Mt. St. Helens afloat after her brother deserted her to join the SEAL Teams. Cory’s whole world dives into a tailspin when Sean MacKay shows up at her resort with the news of her brother’s death and the wild suspicion her brother may have sent her traitorous classified documents. No way will Cory trust MacKay — the man who once seduced her and then vanished into the night without a trace.

Review by Felita Daniels
I was really intrigued by the idea of an angel being in the story. Evidently they are working behind the scenes or in secret to be unveiled at the end of the book. I like mysteries also, so this aspect was not unlike figuring out a whodunit. The book started out with telling us a great deal about action that happened in the past. I kind of felt like I would have liked to have gotten to know the brother and his team instead of hearing about it. But then that would have been an action adventure novel more so than a romance.
There is a great deal of action in this book. I really liked that there were multiple conflicts and things going on. This gave the book more depth and seriousness to the story line. It wasn’t just about how good looking characters were and how hot and bothered they were getting. Both of the main characters were pretty angry (for different reasons) in the start of the novel. That in itself is an obstacle to finding happiness. But both were strong individuals and I liked each of them for varying reasons. In addition to romance readers, I feel this book would appeal to action, mystery and suspense readers too.
