Undercover Navy Love

#41) The Admiral’s Bride by Suzanne Brockmann.

Hey it’s a book with a hero who is over the age of 50. I think he’s 53. The heroine is 29.

Jake Robinson is a Vietnam Hero. HERO. At the beginning of the book Matthew Lange is dying in the jungle awaiting a freindly fire strike or the enemy to kill his platoon and a Priest. But “Admiral” Leutentient Jake Robinson, SEAL extraordinare comes in and saves them all. Matt finds out that Jake has saved some 400+ men.

Dr. Zoe Lange (oh yes) is a biological warfare specialist and expert in espionage. Called by Admiral (for real) Robinson to work with him on his top secret team to recover a deadly nerve agent stolen by fanatics. And they infiltrate the group by pretending to be married. Only as romance novels go, they start having feelings for real.

Jake is still fighting off feelings for his wife who died of cancer 3 years before. And Zoe has a hero-worship thing going since Jake rescued her Dad. She’s never had a real relationship because she’s been in love with her image of him. Thankfully for her, he matches up to her fantasies of him.

Strong characters, definatly predates Brockmann’s current Troubleshooter’s series. But still a good story with good characters. She has raised the bar for other author’s who write action romance. But nothing earth shattering for me here. B-, if I were in the habit of giving grades.
