Great military book. The hero, a Navy SEAL, is heroic and delicious. A few little plot points keeps me from giving it a 4 1/2 or five star rating. Good emotional scenes in book, needed some tissues at times. The SEAL impersonates a prince who is a target for terroists.
This great read from Brockmann had me in tears by the happy ending. Veronica is a media consultant who has the seemingly impossible task of transforming a tough talking New Jersey SEAL into the prince he happens to resemble. Joe, the SEAL, has a few surprises up his sleeve, like the fact that he knows 8 languages and is an incredible mimic. There's a powerful scene when the "prince" visits a children's cancer hospice, nice background info about Joe and his childhood role model, good banter between the SEALS, and some daring rescues. Other books in the series are Harvard's Education, Frisco's Kid, and Forever Blue.
