HOT SEAL Bride: HOT SEAL Team, Book 4 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Sold to the highest bidder...
For the past 14 years, Princess Antonella Rossi has been a virtual prisoner. She has no friends, no fun, and she’s not allowed to leave her aunt and uncle’s Virginia compound without an escort.
But today is her wedding day. A rich sheikh has bought her virginity, and with it, her freedom. Any hope of independence Ella’s ever cherished will disappear the instant she faces him across the altar. With time running out and the wedding party gathering, Ella seizes the opportunity to run as far and fast as she can.
Navy SEAL Cash “Money” McQuaid isn’t looking for trouble, but trouble always seems to find him. This time trouble is five foot four and wearing a wedding dress. Rescuing a runaway princess has consequences though, and with his face plastered on the evening news and his career on the line, he realizes there’s only one way out of this mess - he has to marry her!
It’s a marriage in name only, just until he can clear his name and win Ella the freedom she seeks. But shacking up with a gorgeous virgin isn’t as easy as it seems, especially when the sparks snapping between them are hotter and more dangerous than anything Cash has ever experienced. By the time he realizes it’s too late to resist his virgin bride, an unseen enemy is intent on taking her away from him.
Cash is gonna need all his skills - and his friends on the Hostile Operations Team - in order to rescue his princess bride and give her the happily-ever-after she deserves.

"Yes, Ella. That is exactly the problem."
OMG! I absolutely loved this story! I love it when the hero, who's sworn off love and marriage, finds the one woman that can change his mind! The one woman who sees through his tough exterior and gets right to the heart of him.
Princess Antonella Rossi has led a sheltered life. Kept secluded by her aunt and uncle since her parents died, she now finds herself and her innocence promised to a middle-eastern sheikh. But, she won't let that happen and makes a run for it. Literally on the verge of being dragged back to the altar, a white night appears in a black Mustang and saves her from what she was sure would be a fate worse than death. But, how far will he go to keep her safe, when he doesn't even know her? When it becomes clear that the only thing that can save her, and save his reputation, is the one rule he swore he'd never break, can they keep up the charade long enough to gain her freedom?
Cash "Money" McQuaid just wanted a nice, quiet, weekend fishing at the river. No excitement, no trouble, just relaxation and solitude. That all changes when he comes upon a girl in a wedding dress being manhandled on the roadside. Doing what he does best, he rescues her, but at what cost? He's got two rules: (1) No Marriage; (2) No virgins. Now, with his reputation on the line, and the media believing he's kidnapped her, there is only one way out to save them both. Break rule number one. How long can he hold out before he breaks rule number two?
I loved the banter between these two. She can shock him with a simple sentence and put him in his place with the next. His inner battle between giving in to his desire and doing what he thinks is the right thing was both heartwarming and humorous. These men of HOT are just that!! HOT! And completely swoon-worthy. This is a great addition to the HOT Seal Team series. If you haven't read it, do it as soon as possible!
Those two sentences brought an onslaught of feelings from fear to agony. I would have been less shocked by his perspective if I were reading a historical romance, but such a notion has no place in contemporary American fiction. I spent seventeen years married to a man who demanded sex as his right with no concern for how his selfish, cavalier attitude affected my body and my emotions. I deserved better, though of course, I did not realize that until our marriage ended and I’d spent seven years in (ongoing) therapy.
I’m disappointed because the premise of the book appealed to me, and I truly liked Ella. However, those two lines of internal dialogue found me exiting the book straightaway.
I honestly don’t know if I’ll risk reading another romance by Harris.
Just imagine a “Hostile Operations Team” retelling of Cinderella: “Ella” is a lovely young woman who was orphaned at a young age, taken in by wealthy relatives (with 2 spoiled female cousins, of course), shut away from the world around her. She’s raised to believe that she’s part of a noble family, but of no particular worth, other than to marry well so that can repay the relatives who took her in and raised her. But at the very last minute, she can’t bring herself to go through with the arranged marriage, and tries to leave the estate….
“Prince Charming” is Cash McQuaid, a nice guy from the wrong side of the tracks, with nearly crippling commitment issues. All he wanted to do was spend a few days of Leave at his buddy’s cabin, fishing, but on his way there, he came across Ella, being dragged back to her wedding by a man with a gun, and well…what can I say? He’s a nice guy.
Besides, like he tells Ells, “SEALs save people.”
The most fun thing though, is that this is “HOT” – in all possible ways. There’s lots of tension between Ella and Cash, and there’s suspense, too because both of those things are to be expected in a “HOT” novel, but there’s a fun little bonus of “HOT-ness” because of the touch of the unexpected: Ella’s a Princess, but she’s a little bit shocking. And Cash is a rough-and-ready SEAL who goes through women like Kleenex, yet he’s determined NOT to touch Ella… and it’s pretty darn funny, watching it all unfold.
And the back-and-forth between the guys always make me smile:
“Ella, these two idiots are my teammates. Alex Kamarov and Cody McCormick. You can call them whatever you like, including *sshole - they’ll answer to it.”
Did that make you grin as big as *I* did? After this fun little tale, I can’t wait to read the next one!

If this is your first book from the Hot Seal Team then I would recommend starting at the beginning with first HOT team, this will help to understand all the characters.
Cash ‘Money’ McQuaid is known as being a confirmed bachelor and has had a good laugh at all of this team mates who have recently become ‘pussy whipped’. However when he first sees Ella, he knows he can’t drive away and let her deal with the situation that she has gotten into. He is adament though that he will not be tied down and at the end of this mission they will part ways.
Ella has had a rough start in life, she l9st her parents at a young age and even though she was taken in by family she was never treated with love and respect. She is now facing having to marry someone who she doesn’t love and is also a lot older than her. Her only option is to run..... she does and ends up needing help from Cash in order to keep her freedom.
What starts off as a marriage on conveneance become much more than either planned.
This is another great addition to this series and I’m looking forward to catching up with HOT again!!
It's got it all fun, action, twists, shocks, lots of sass and obviously sex.
It's great to see Cash taken down with the L bug. Especially since he took great mirth in everyone's downfall. Lol.
It's fab seeing Ella's innocence and Cash's submission.
Fab read can't wait for more from H.O.T cos they are HOT!!!
Epic read as usual. It’s Cash’s turn. I loved Ella, she just drew me in from the start.
I found this a bit different from the other HOT reads as the actual action doesn’t start until 80% but the build is what makes the story.
Love the SEAL team dynamics and so will you, read it, LOVE it
