Reseña del editor
It's a good thing Gabe Bristow lives and breathes the Navy SEAL credo, "the only easy day was yesterday," because today, his life is unrecognizable. When his prestigious career comes to a crashing halt, he's left with a bum leg and few prospects for employment that don't include a desk. That is, until he's offered the chance to command a private hostage rescue team and free a wealthy American businessman from Colombian paramilitary rebels. It seems like a good deal--until he meets his new team: a drunk Cajun linguist, a boy-genius CIA threat analyst, an FBI negotiator with mob ties, a cowboy medic, and an EOD expert as volatile as the bombs he defuses. Oh, and who could forget the sexy, frustratingly impulsive Audrey Van Amee? She's determined to help rescue her brother--or drive Gabe crazy. Whichever comes first. As the death toll rises, Gabe's team of delinquents must figure out how to work together long enough to save the day. Or, at least, not get themselves killed.Because Gabe's finally found something worth living for, and God help him if he can't bring her brother back alive.
Biografía del autor
Writing has always been Tonya Burrow's one true love. She wrote her first novel-length story in eighth grade and hasn't stopped since. She received a B.A. in creative writing from SUNY Oswego and is now working on a MFA in popular fiction at Seton Hill University. She shares her life with two dogs and a ginormous cat in a small town in New York, but she suffers from a bad case of wanderlust and usually ends up moving someplace new every couple years. Luckily, her animals are all excellent travel buddies. When she's not writing, Tonya spends her time reading, painting, exploring new places, and enjoying time with her family.

I recommend this book to readers of romance who love a great, suspenseful story, or anyone looking for some action. Though insta-love abounds, Gabe and Audrey are so endearing that you can’t help but root for them. Not to mention, all of the men of HORNET are smokin’ hot. Yes, there are descriptive sex scenes, but they fit the story, and aren’t gratuitous. However, though descriptive, the book isn’t some erotic romp through the jungle. Burrows writes complex characters, and her world building is fantastic. I can almost take the empanadas, and feel the warm tropical breeze. Overall, I give Seal of Honor two thumbs up!
Gabe & Audrey
Gabriel "Stonewall" Bristow was a Navy SEAL. A car accident forces him into early retirement along with his best friend Quinn, who also was in the accident. Quinn's opted to go into the private sector is trying to convince Gabe to join him as opposed to taking the office job his father "The Admiral" has secured him in DC.
Audrey Van Amee is a free-spirited artist living in Costa Rica. Her brother is all she has left after their parents had died. While on a Skype call to her brother, reminding him of her upcoming art show, he's kidnapped off the street from in front of his apartment.
Needless to say, Gabe takes the offer to join HumInt Consulting Inc's Hostage Recovery & Negotiations Team (HoRNeT, as the linguist proclaims it). His assembled team consists of men who are the best at what they do, but have plenty of issues. They buck authority & do not play well with others, which is especially bad since the first time they all meet face-to-face is when they are already wheels up on their first assignment. They are headed to Bogota Colombia to find and return Bryson Van Amee, American businessman & millionaire.
After Audrey battles through the shock and disbelief of what she's just witnessed, she attempts to find some US Agency that will help her track down & rescue her brother. When it looks like nobody is going to go, she cancels her art show & heads to Colombia herself.
Naturally, the HoRNeT team and Audrey collide and will have to work together to try and find her brother before it's too late.
But dealing with deadly guerrillas, crime lords, psychotic sadists, and one truly devious b**ch isn't easy when your unprepared team seems to be one step behind.
As the story unfolds, the team learns a bit of cohesiveness & begins working together more smoothly. Unwilling separation causes the lead characters to rely on each other more fully than if they'd been part of the larger whole. There are plenty of trials to overcome & plenty of action.
For a series premiere, this is a great book! You get plenty of sneak peeks at the other characters without them detracting from the main couple. There's a ton of action, which I loved. The sexual tension and eventual get-togethers were well plotted. Chemistry and dialogue were strong between all characters.
Overall, I'd give it a strong 4.5
I had started this series with book two. I hate when I do that. I don't believe you must read this series in order. However I personally recommend it. I found these little "ahhhh" moments reading out of order. Nothing that truly tore me from the story. Just ahhhh so that is...
Looking forward to more Tonya Burrows!
