A sizzling hot read, CHRISTMAS WITH A SEAL, the sixth book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Tawny Weber's SEXY SEALS series, is a fun, sensual contemporary romance that will quickly sweep you up into the story. Phillip and Frankie could not be more different. Phillip is a straitlaced, by-the-book SEAL, while Frankie is the creative, more fun loving type. Whereas Phillip grew up with wealth, Frankie lives with her grandmother who is Phillip's housekeeper. However, as the two spend time together and Frankie introduces him to what Christmas should be, the love between them leaps off the page.
Ms. Weber's books never disappoint and this one is no exception. Although this story contains many heated moments, there is more to it. The characters are beautifully developed, enabling readers to empathize with them and their situations. It is heartwarming to watch this relationship come together in the midst of the holidays. For a sexy, sassy read that is sure to lift your spirits and put you in the holiday mood, pick up a copy of CHRISTMAS WITH A SEAL. The humor, sizzling sensuality, Christmas magic, hunky Navy SEALs, quirky heroine, witty dialogue, romance and forever love combine to give readers a story they won't want to miss. Although this story can be read as a standalone, I am sure that once you read it you will seek out the rest of the series, including A SEAL'S SEDUCTION, A SEAL'S SURRENDER, A SEAL'S SALVATION, A SEAL'S KISS and A SEAL'S FANTASY. I have enjoyed the entire series and definitely recommend them!
