about

For the first time in her life, art therapist Lucia Lewis is ready to live. And the masquerade ball in Las Vegas is just the place to find a ridiculously hot guy to complete her wicked to-do list. The only rule? Her elegant Venetian mask-which conceals the scars that have always held her back from the life she deserves-stays on.

Navy SEAL Cade Daniels heads to Vegas on a mission to keep his best friend's little sister out of trouble. Except the woman he's sent to find is all heat and flame...and perfectly capable of handling herself. And him. But the moment Lucia's mask slips, the need to heal her, body and soul, is complete and absolute temptation.

But revealing himself could cost him the one thing he isn't willing to risk...his heart.

Each book in the Sin City SEALS series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SEXY SEAL!!! 4.5 Stars The story is an extremely sexy, sweet romance between a Navy SEAL on leave in Las Vegas and a woman with scars on the inside and the outside, who only wanted to have a steamy night of anonymous pleasure. Cade is exactly what Lucia needed. You can't rush love but Cade and Lucia have proven that you can't slow it down either. This is a well written romance and I can't wait to read more from this very talented author. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I love in a Brazen romance. Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews by Kim Very few books have the ability to have me liking the characters and enjoying the story from the very beginning. I was surprised that Sara Jane Stone did just that even though she is a new author to me. To Tempt a SEAL takes the best friend-sibling troupe and gives it a little twist. In this case, Cade Daniels and Natalie Lewis are best friends and Cade ultimately falls for Natalie’s younger sister, Lucia. After the death of their parents, the Lewis sisters went from foster home to foster home. When the girls were seventeen and sixteen, their lives again changed in an unimaginable way. As a result, the two grew apart but still maintained a relationship. The two don’t really see each other since Lucia lives in Tennessee and Natalie lives in California. They call, text, and email but they don’t really have a grasp of who the other is on a daily basis. When Lucia tells Natalie she plans to go to Vegas and live out some of her fantasies with a complete stranger, Natalie freaks out. She convinces Cade to look out for Lucia since he’s going to be in town visiting his father. “So Cade, did you come for the art or the chocolate?” “Gorgeous, I came to find you.” Oh, Lord, and so it begins..... Lucia has no idea Cade is actually there to find and look out for her. Cade has no idea Lucia is a beautiful tempting vixen who’s a little bit insecure. Lucia isn’t looking for anything past her weekend in Vegas. Cade doesn’t do relationships since the SEALs are his life. He has first hand experience that his job isn’t conducive to having a true relationship. These two are so great together with their playful back and forth and their sizzling chemistry. Sara Jane has given me everything I love in a Brazen romance, from the hot, to die for hero, to the likeable, insecure heroine, to the steamy bedroom (or lounge chair or shower) action, to wonderful secondary characters I can’t wait to read more about. Sara Jane definitely has a new fan in me. **Received a copy from Entangled Brazen in exchange for an honest unbiased opinion.**

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Sexy and fun quick read! Cade is a really hot SEAL with a really sweet side. I love how he made Lucia fell good about herself. Their combined fantasy lists on post-its are both hot and funny, and it was great the way they added to them. The length of the book makes it a little hard for Cade and Lucia to have a really deep emotional connection. While that is usually a problem for me, it worked for this story. They both fall for each other during what was supposed to be a weekend fling, and when the secret he is keeping comes out, there isn't a ton of drama while they sort out their feelings. Great start to a new SEAL series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sin City SEALs, Book 1 As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by KittyKelly 4 out of 5 Licks I found Sara Jane Stone about a year ago and was excited to see more from her. I've always enjoyed military romance and Sara is starting a brand new series with this one. Lucia wants to take a chance in Vegas and have a random hook up. She's worked really hard to feel better about herself and decided a wild night fulfilling her fantasies was the best way to help make that happen. She had no idea her sister asked Cade to keep an eye out for her and not let her do anything crazy. Cade takes one look at Lucia and prayed she was the one he was supposed to watch out for. He decided he was going to keep her closer than Natalie asked, but couldn't take the chance to pass up a night with Lucia. Of course eventually Lucia finds out the truth and heads back home. Overall I really enjoyed this book. There were some things that I felt could have been explored a little further. Lucia's weight loss and scars seemed to have a huge impact on her life but after the first few chapters they really weren't brought up again in detail. I feel like she might have been a little more cognizant of those two things in particular throughout the book. The attraction between these two can't be denied though. I really enjoyed that Cade made her feel so attractive and happy. The fantasy lists were sexy and lots of fun. I laughed and smiled a lot while reading this book. I can't wait to see what comes next for this series. I'm guessing we are going to get the sisters story next and I'm excited to see where it goes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from super sexy and fun story! This sexy contemporary romance is the story of Lucia and Cade. A facial disfigurement at the hands of her foster father left Lucia with not only physical but emotional scars as well. Determined to move forward with her life, she's made a list of things she wants to accomplish, a sexual list, and a masquerade party in Vegas is the perfect place for her to hide her scars and hook up with a guy who'll see everything but them. When she meets handsome SEAL Cade, he's the dream man she's been looking for, and even when the mask comes off he sees her beauty inside and out. But when she finds out that he was sent by her sister (whom she had confided in about her wish list) to foil her plans, can she trust what they've built between them? Lucia is a friendly, quiet woman, her scars on the outside having scarred her inside too. Hiding behind a mask gives her the confidence to go after what she wants. She's used to the looks, the stares, the questions, and ignoring them, but just this once she wants to be able to forget them and have a sexy night with a stranger. She works as an art therapist, painting these beautiful canvasses to show her inner emotions. This enables her to teach others to do the same, and I thought it was a very inventive outlet and career choice for her character. Cade is a strong, handsome, sexy guy and he is instantly attracted to Lucia, physically obviously since she's dressed to kill, but emotionally as well. He likes her, and thinking the mask is part of a game, it's a game he wants to play - even at the risk of angering his best friend , Lucia's sister, who sent him to stop the whole charade. The sex is definitely what drives this story, and once the attraction between them has been established, their conversation ratchets up the heat and leads to several steamy scenes. Lucia has a list of things she wants to do with the man who'll be willing to go there with her, and Cade is all in once he finds out what's involved. I particularly liked the inventiveness of using post-it notes to detail ones fantasies, and the combination of humour and sex, to make their scenes lighthearted sometimes and deeper the next. As they knock items off her list, and then his, the emotional component of their relationship can't be ignored and they discover how much they enjoy just spending time together. Cade sees the real woman inside, scars and all and wants to protect her, wishing he could take away her insecurities and show her how beautiful she is. I loved how he treated her, how he made her feel wanted and loved. But Cade also has his own problems. He witnessed his parents marriage falling apart, and he's still an active military member, one who goes on missions and doesn't feel capable of being in a long term relationship. Only the more time he spends with Lucia, the more he wonders whether he wants to follow completely in his father's footsteps and lose out on having a real relationship. Both characters have their work cut out for them to learn to trust their hearts. Of course there is the inevitable conflict that must be overcome in order to have the proverbial happy ending. But it was done well and the overall story is minimal in angst and more a tale of two people with sexual chemistry who are good for each other. There are lots of lighthearted and humorous moments throughout. It was a very enjoyable and sexy read, and I'm hoping there will be more books to come soon in this series! 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Awesome read! Very well written with great characters. Sizzling hot sexy and a wonderful story of a young woman spreading her wings, facing fears, and doing something wonderfully wicked just for herself. After a very rough childhood, Lucia Lewis has scars inside and out. Now she is determined to get past all those with a vacation trip to Vegas. On his way to Vegas to visit family, Cade Daniels is more than happy to look after his best friend's timid and naive sister while she visits Vegas. The woman he finds in Vegas and the woman his friend described are nothing alike. Lucia pulls at his heart like no one else has but is he willing to put it all out there for her? This is one I definitely recommend for everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from To Tempt a Seal I am in lust....love. However, I could never disrupt this couple. Ooohh it is hot in Vegas and even hotter with this couple in town. Ms Stone always manages to give her readers emotions a workout with her books. Not falling for her characters is an impossibility. Cade is a hot, horny SEAL and a whole lot more considerate then he wants people to know. He never fails at his mission, but the Navy has never put anyone like Lucia in front of him and told him to protect but not touch. Talk about your impossible missions. Lucia is insecure, has been abused and learned to live by expressing herself in her art and helping abused children deal. Her weekend of escape turns out to be so much more. Cade is more than she could ever have fantasized. How can he want her? Cade has a secret that could ruin what he wants to give her. His history makes him know it can only be a perfect weekend and that's all either of them want--right? When reality rears up, what will happen? You will be surprised to see who gives advice in this situation. Nothing is easy, except their feelings. This is a DO NOT MISS story. I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have you believing in fairy tales. To Tempt a Seal by Sara Jane Stone is a beautiful story of how circumstances can shape a person's life. Lucia and Cade have been hurt in different ways and are searching for the person to help them heal. They recognize in each other a kindred spirit. Lucia captured my heart with her childlike vulnerability due to events that left her mentally and physically scarred. Scarred, scared and insecure. Despite it all her inner beauty shone through regardless outer flaws. Cade's pain was more hidden but no less acute. As they work through their issues together they start to find acceptance and stability in each other. Received an ARC of this book for an honest review. A sensually satisfying read that will break your heart and have you believing in fairy tales.
