Securing Jane by Susan Stoker Blog Tour

Securing Jane by Susan Stoker.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Susan Stoker comes a new story in her SEAL of Protection: Legacy Series…

Over the years, Storm North has witnessed two teams of Navy SEALs under his command find true love. He doesn’t expect the same for himself. He’s too old. Too jaded. Too set in his ways. Until a woman who’s been right in front of him for years manages to impress Storm in a way very few women—or men—ever have.

Jane Hamilton knows it’s ridiculous to have a crush on the charismatic and handsome admiral. She’s the divorced mother of a twenty-six-year-old daughter. Too old for crushes. Too old for a lot of things. There’s no chance she’ll ever catch the eye of a man like Storm North.

Until someone delivers a bomb to the base.

As the civilian contractor in charge of the mail room, Jane finds herself in the direct line of fire, enduring a series of events that leads to a budding relationship with the very man she’s been longing for. She couldn’t be happier, and Storm feels the same.

The only one unhappy, in fact, is the thwarted bomber. Unhappy enough to do something drastic. Now Storm and Jane have to work together to save innocent sailors—and themselves—from an explosive situation threatening their happily ever after.

**Securing Jane is the 7th and final book in the SEAL of Protection: Legacy Series and a part of the 1001 Dark Nights collection. Each book is a standalone, with no cliffhanger endings.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

She was sure Storm had to have a girlfriend, though he wasn’t married, as far as Jane knew. She constantly checked out his left hand for a ring.

On the outside looking in, Storm North was the perfect catch, and she was… simply Jane. Plain Jane, as her ex used to call her. It was a nickname their daughter had picked up and taunted her with for most of her mean teenage years.

Raising Rose by herself hadn’t been a walk in the park. At first, Jake had wanted to co-raise their daughter, but as the years went by, and he moved from one base to another, his trips to see her had become fewer and fewer. It affected Rose greatly. She’d felt abandoned, blaming her mom for the fact that her dad wasn’t around. She’d snuck out of their apartment all the time in high school and graduated by the skin of her teeth.

Jane hadn’t been surprised when she’d moved out on her eighteenth birthday. There were even a few years when Jane thought she’d wake up to a knock on the door from the police, letting her know that Rose was dead of an overdose or because she’d hooked up with the wrong man. But finally, after several painful years for them both, things had at least leveled out when it came to their relationship. She was twenty-six, had a steady boyfriend—who Jane didn’t know at all—and was at least making an effort to be a little nicer. She wasn’t sure what her daughter was doing for a living, but when Rose did reach out, she was no longer begging for money.

It was kind of pathetic that Jane was taking that as a good sign.

In the near decade that she’d been living on her own, Jane had felt as if she’d been learning who she was as a woman.

At first she’d been Jake’s girlfriend. Then his Navy wife. Then she was the woman who’d been dumped and a single mother. She’d struggled for so long and so hard that she still felt as if she was finding herself. Which was somewhat silly after half a century, but there it was. And she wanted to find love again. Find a man who would support her as much as she supported him. Wanted someone to laugh with… and do all the naughty things she’d been fantasizing about for years and years.

But Storm North wasn’t that man.

Jane knew it, but that didn’t mean she could stop fantasizing about him.

Pushing the mail cart down the hallway, Jane felt her heart rate increase as she got closer to Storm’s office. It was silly. Ridiculous. But she felt as if she was in middle school again, about to see the boy she had a massive crush on.

But Storm was no boy, that was for sure.

She entered his administrative assistant’s office and smiled at the man sitting behind the desk.

“Good morning,” she said cheerily.

“Hi, Jane,” the young man replied with a smile. “Go on in. He’s not in a meeting.”

“Thanks,” Jane told him, hoping she didn’t look as excited as she felt. She didn’t get to see Storm every day, since he was a very busy man, and whenever she did, it made her morning.



Just his name was enough to make her sigh, Storm North. Securing Jane by Susan Stoker.



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Avid Reader☆☆☆☆☆
M/F Romance

Jane is middle aged but knows that she has a lot of life left to live. I absolutely love that she is a Shawshank Redemption fan, as I am too. Jane has been working in the mail room at the naval base for a decade. She likes her job and enjoys what she does. While Jane is doing her job, she happens upon a package that doesn’t quite look right and finds herself at the wrong end of a tear gas bomb. Covered in caustic gas, she makes sure that the people she supervises are safe and helps everyone get out of the way. Jane knows that someone will help, but she wishes they would hurry up.

Storm is a fantastic commander. He loves what he does, but realizes now, something might be missing. As he sees Jane for the first time – truly sees her – Storm knows that he wants to get to know her. Storm has seen his SEAL teams find women to love and while he isn’t quite envious, he wants someone to share his life with too.

Storm and Jane know what they are looking for in a partner, so their romance is a whirlwind. With the bomber still on the loose, will Storm and Jane be able to find their happily ever after?

I am sad to see this series come to an end, but loved each book in it. I highly recommend them.

I love the 1001 Dark Nights books for giving loyal fans an extra treat with catch ups on favourite series, and introducing new readers to the richness of an author's work in a shorter story. This one gives us a catch up after the drama of book six and gives SEAL boss Storm North his chance at a happily ever after and life beyond the service.

Even though home based, there is a lot of drama in this story as well as a really enjoyable and moving romance. Just as Storm wakes up to his attraction to Jane, the head of the mail room, she is involved in an incident. They fall quickly into a lovely calm and sexy relationship, which is entirely believable, and a lot of fun.

So great to catch up with the teams and their families and to see them band together to support the man who has been there for them over the years. Thank you, Susan Stoker.
