Read an excerpt
Navy SEAL Lieutenant Jim “Spaceman” Slade’s got a problem. A SEAL Team is only as fast as its slowest member—and right now, thanks to his battered knees—that’s Jim. He reluctantly takes medical leave, but he’s a SEAL, so he spends his “vacation” as an instructor, helping out a former senior chief who runs a camp for SEAL wannabes. But to Jim’s shock, he finds himself falling for the one woman attending the camp session—an obviously brilliant but seemingly timid lawyer who is determined to do everything her way, no matter how wrong.
Ashley DeWitt’s got a problem, too. She’s a kickass lawyer, but when it comes to her personal life, she’s a total pushover. When she finds herself hiding behind her condo Dumpster to avoid a confrontation with an ex, she decides enough is enough and signs up for a session at a camp called SEAL World, in hopes she’ll discover how to be more assertive outside of the courtroom. And then she’s assigned to Jim’s team…
When an alpha male—smart, funny, strong, but terrified of a future trapped behind a desk—collides with a smart, funny, and quietly strong woman with a troubled past, sparks fly hot and fast.
The tall, dark, and dangerous Navy SEALs of Team Ten are back—with Suzanne Brockmann’s signature blend of love, laughter, and a hint of danger in SEAL Camp.
- This book is set both in the present day and about a year and a half after the end of Night Watch (TDD #11) which was first published in 2003. (Embrace the time warp!)
- SEAL Camp stands alone, but readers familiar with the TDD series will get to catch up with some of the SEALs.
- LT (jg) Thomas King is a secondary character in this book, as is LT Luke “Lucky” O’Donlon, Petty Officer Rio Rosetti, Chief Bobby Taylor and his wife Colleen, and Chief Wes Skelly and his wife Brittany. Joe Cat appears, too, in his role of CO of SEAL Team Ten.
