Bryce’s laugh vibrated through her body. “Has anyone ever told you that you are the most stubborn person in the whole world?”“Apart from you?”“Apart from me.”She nodded. “Yes.”“Your family? I’d like to meet them.”You never will. The thought jerked her back into reality. “I’ll be fine now, Bryce. You can go. Thanks for your help.”“Yeah, like that’s going to happen.” The sarcasm in his voice was withering. “I’m just going to walk out of here and leave you when you can’t even crawl to your own bed.”“You don’t have any choice. I don’t want you here.” With a determined effort, Steffi pushed herself away from him and tried to sit up straight. It was a mistake.Behind the tinted lenses, the edges of her vision went black. Everything swam out of focus. She heard Bryce call her name in alarm, and the last thing she felt was his strong arms catching her as she fell back onto the pillows.
The Solider’s Seduction was my first book by Jane Godman, and the second book in the Sons of Stillwater series. It worked okay as a standalone–the main characters of book one (Covert Kisses) play a role here, but the details you might need to know about that story are briefly told here so you’re not at a loss.
I liked the characters here: Bryce and Steffi are interesting, and easy to root for. Their story is full of action and virtually non-stop twists and turns. Their romance feels a bit rushed, however–even though they’ve known each other for a while, their relationship has been boss/employee and rather antagonistic, and I didn’t quite feel the sparks here that I wanted to. The antagonist is sufficiently evil and his actions plenty dire, but overall the suspense plot required some suspension of belief to go along with it.
Overall, though, this was an enjoyable read, and enough clues are given about Vincente’s (the oldest brother of the trio) story to make me keep an eye out for it.
