The Navy SEAL's fresh start lies on the far side of her defeat…

Mick Frasier owes his life to his fellow Navy SEALs. Now that he's discharged, one of them offers him another lifeline: a new future on the Caribbean island of Miralinda.

But when he arrives at the abandoned sugar plantation he's supposed to whip into shape as an executive training facility, he finds it already under renovations—overseen by the beautiful director of the island's Historical Society.

Cara Levasseur is too young for her job. Too pretty. Too…unorthodox. She's heard it all, and now that she's finally secured Villa Sucre, she's not going to let anything get in the way of her first big professional coup.

Not even a sexy, strapping ex-Navy SEAL who isn't afraid to turn on the charm—or when that doesn't work, declare all-out war. When she sets up camp in the ballroom, because there's not a chance in hell she's giving up her claim on the estate, Mick stakes out his own territory around the only working bathroom on the property.

With tempers flaring and passions running hot, Cara's intent on not letting Mick ruin this opportunity for her—and she doesn't want him to ruin anything, either. Her life plan, for example. Or her heart…

  • Another Zoe York book

    Zoe York writes books that speak to me. I always enjoy the alpha male service men. Lots of hot chemistry between the main characters. Very enjoyable book.

    Another home run from Zoe York! She is the queen of "hate at first sight" to combustible chemistry to HEA. And I'm amazed as the depth of her writing for the length of the story. It doesn't matter if it's a novella or a novel, she writes with such incredible detail that the reader can't help but love the characters and route for them. Mick is trying to figure out life after the military, and Cara is trying to make a name for herself professionally. They meet when both lay claim to an old sugar plantation on the Caribbean island of Miralinda. Sparks fly as ownership gets worked out. Will the property be turned into an executive training center as Mick hopes? Or will it become the flagship property of the island's historical society? Who cares once these two get together! I seriously love everything Zoe York writes and can't wait for more Adventures on Miralinda!
  • Retired Navy SEAL vs. Sassy Historian

    By Agent$$$$
    I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review. I've now read a few novels/novellas by Zoe York and so far, I enjoyed this one the most. I had just the right mixture of sexy, Alpha-man SEAL and feisty, sassy, exotic beauty. It was a truly enjoyable read. Mick, a SEAL, who's been forced into retirement due to an injury finds himself coming to Miralinda Island in hopes of staring something new--meaningful. His buddy Will, who's currently serving our country, was left a piece of property from his grandma. Will and Mick are planning to build a military training facility, of sorts. He arrives at the "plantation" and walks in on a stunning beauty. Cara, who works for the historical society, is working to restore the property--not tear it down. They argue about who has rights to the property, sparks flying.....They each think they are right, so they each stage a sit-in of sorts. Through their standoff, they come to find they may have more in common than they originally thought. Their goals, although somewhat different, are the same. This is an excellent story of what can happen if people work together to solve their issues. They didn't start off with a common goal or purpose, but that all changed as they got to know each other. I loved their sarcastic edge and their combustibility. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves to read about a sexy Navy SEAL and his sassy woman.

    Ruined by a Seal review ** I received a copy from the Author in return for an honest review… ** Hot Sexy Ex - Navy Seal Mick - check Curvy Beautiful young bi racial Cara - check Makes for long hot Caribbean Nights. Mick wants a new future on the Caribbean island of Miralinda. He's suppose to turn an abandoned sugar plantation into a executive training facility. Cara is the director of the island’s Historical Society. She's over seeing the renovations on the same sugar plantation Villa Sucre. She has a lot to prove to her bosses. And she's not letting anyone, especially a ridiculous hot pain in the butt ex Seal stop her. Every time they get together they are fighting their attraction to each other and just plain fighting. I call it foreplay fighting. But it's hot whatever it is. " And for all her bluster, for all the hard, angry looks she threw his way, he felt an odd familiarity with her. So he secretly liked the woman he’d spend the next few days around, at least as much as he liked anyone, and it was fun. " The chemistry was so hot between them I was scared when they finally got together they would burn the place down. Yeah it was just that hot. When they stop fighting and gave in to their passions I was fanning myself. I also had to take a few sips of water. Of course no relationship is ever smooth sailing. They are still at odds over who actually have rights to the sugar plantation. After much soul searching, a lot of compromises from both of them. The finally find a solution that is a win win for both of them. Seeing them together and happy melts your heart. Zoe knows how to make you invested and rooting for the couples to get their HEA. I can't wait to see who's up next on ASSIGNMENT: Caribbean Nights.
