    The Navy Seal's promise was a cute and heartwarming read. It was the first novel I'd read by Soraya Lane. It was quick paced and flowed smoothly. It was a short read and still it left me with a smile on my face. The story is about Luke Gray, a Navy SEAL who meets United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen on a flight. Saskia is headed home for Christmas on 48 hours leave hoping to see her son. But unfortunately she finds herself stranded on JFK due to a snowstorm.

This is when Luke decides to help the beautiful woman he met on the flight by making sure she reaches home to her son for Christmas. Luke and Saskia both have unfavorable pasts with Luke losing his wife three years ago to Cancer and Saskia hurting due to the fact that their son's father wants nothing to do with them. It was amazing to see how both of them managed to know and understand each other so well in such a shot span of time. It never once made me feel like it was unreal. I loved the conversations between Luke and Saskia. The epilogue was just so sweet. I enjoyed seeing their happy ending. Soraya Lane's writing style is to the point while delivering characters to whom we can instantly relate to. If you're looking for a sweet quick contemporary romance The Navy Seal's Promise is definitely the book for you.

Why does Luke want to do this for a starnger? Why would he want to make a stranger fulfill her promise to a loved one? Then he calls in a favor and gets the army humvee to drive her home through the snow. And they have scorching chemistry between them and are attracted to each other. Well, on the way they do get stuck, and how do they spend the time in the hummer? Luke didn't even know that it was a secret fantasy of his to make love in the back of the military hummer! The sensuality in the love scene is astounding. There are some choice words but as part of the dialogue it was well placed. I loved it! It was fun with sassy dialogue. Very fast paced as I read it in just one sitting. Highly emotional. Well worth reading.

    Fantastic story. I connected with Saskia and Luke right away. With only two days before she had to return overseas, Saskia is heartbroken when weather cancels her flight home to see her son. Her seatmate on the previous flight, Luke is drawn to the sexy soldier and promises that he will get her home. I could feel Saskia's love for her son and her desperation to make it home to see him.

There was also her connection with Luke, something that was totally unexpected for her. She couldn't believe he would go to that much trouble for someone he didn't know. Luke started out as seeing Saskia as a pleasant distraction from his bad memories of the season. I loved the way he pulled out all the stops to get her home. I also thought that the way they were able to relate to each other was very well done, thanks to the way they were both military and therefore had common experiences and outlooks. Their trip from JFK to Buffalo was great, and the love scene was hot! I also loved the way that her family immediately made him welcome - also a very military thing to do. The conclusion to the story was oh so satisfying - I could picture it happening!

    "Her saviour. Her knight on a white horse somehow promising to get her where she needed to be." This book just screams sweetness! I expected a bit more hard ass characters in this since they were in military, but no. Saskia is so feminine and cute, while Luke seems like a man-next-door/knight-in-shining-armor kind of guy. I can easily forget them being in the military and get lost in the story. A chance meeting that turned into something. I love the fast-paced plot that didn't gave room for "Her saviour.

Well other than their schedules, but you know what I mean. The author made such lovable characters that I wish we had the chance to get to know more. I really wish this was longer. There were parts I'd really want to discover and I wish there was enough space/time to see these nice characters develop. Also, I want to have more scenes with Jack. The lines were just perfect—not cheesy but not boring. I also love how the love scene was written. It wasn't just sex. It was sensual and intimate. And although it was too soon to call their affections for each other, love, it seems like it was present in that scene. For the second time, Lane did an awesome job in make us fall in love with her story and characters. This is a story about family, promises and finding love when you least expect it. *This and other reviews can also be found on blog*

    Trying to get home to see your son ,getting stranded on the way with a sexy as sin Navy Seal ...sounds very appealing right well of course it does !

I very quickly learned that Mrs Lane knows her stuff and also managed to transport me into the lives of two stunning characters Saskia and Luke were both powerful in their own right,independent and very likeable.The passion level between both was absolutely perfectly written and the scenes were vivid enough for me to escape to the world every woman dreams of. I felt connected with all characters in the book which from my experience is not something just any author can manage,it takes a special kind of something for me to feel emotionally involved with what I am reading on the page and to really feel the level of emotion the author packed into her work. Soraya managed this perfectly and so much more. I was entranced, and completely in love with every single second and the ending my oh my I could just die from happiness ! Well done Soraya keep it coming ! 5/5 star review

    This was such a fantastic story to read. Not only was it a great story line but the relationship between the two characters had such chemistry that the reader could easily find themselves getting involved with what happens next. Saskia Cullen has a 48 hour leave from the Army and is looking forward to spending Christmas with her young son. Luke Gray is a Navy SEAL and is also home on a short leave.

When a terrible snowstorm shuts down the airport and all connecting flights have been cancelled, Saskia feels like she will have to go back without being able to see her son. Even though Luke had just met her during the first flight together, Luke will do what ever it takes to help Saskia to get home to her son(even if it means driving through the snow storm to get her home). Luke is dealing with his own personal reasons for wanting to do this for a complete stranger. I enjoyed reading this story as these two strangers set out on a mission of their own to make a little boys & his mother's Christmas wish come true. The only complaint I have with this book is I did not want it to end!!! It would be wonderful to see a sequel and find out how Luke & Saskia are doing. I know that this story will for sure be on a my list to read again!!

    After reading The Navy Seal's Promise, I read most of the reviews and the negative comments about how 48 hour leaves were not given, not giving leave in the last few months of deployment, etc. This is a story or fantasy and the author has the right to write her fantasy to fit her story line. I personally do not read fiction to see how close it is to reality; I have enough reality everyday.

I personally do not read fiction to see how close it is to reality; I have enough reality everyday. The two main characters were both strong personalities and I liked how the author used the common strong points to build the relationship quickly. Both had strong moral values and feelings about family; they both suffered a loss. His was his wife's death to cancer and hers an ex-husband that left not just her but their son as well. This common type of experience played well into the development of their relationship. Luke was strong, not just physically but emotionally too. He showed his values by making a commitment to get her home to her son and making it happen. He wasn't all good guy but a human that wanted a beautiful attractive woman and the love scene was hot in the back of the truck. The ending was happy but left open as to these twos future. Could the author have another story planned for them?

He uses the connections he has to get a car and drives in a snowstorm. The storm gets bad and they have to stop and there are doubts if Saskia will be on time or not. As mentioned, I truly enjoyed the story, I just wish it was longer. :) It was very heartwarming story, a perfect read for Christmas time!

    United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen has 48 hours leave, just enough time to spend Christmas with her son.

He knows what her life is like because he's a Navy Seal. He makes her a promise that he'd get her home in time for Christmas dinner, calling in a favor to make it happen.

The question is can they work things out? Read to find out, it's worth it.

    Disclaimer: Its a really short read! So two weeks ago, I missed work a little being sick and therefore refused to spend any extra money on my Amazon/Kindle account until I got a better paycheck. Call it being responsible. In doing so, I got this little freebie, and it was actually pretty good. I mean I'd call it a 3.5 star read, and while I dont really like romances that have the characters "in love" in seconds... okay, days, of meeting, it was a good story. It must be pretty decent to others too, Disclaimer: Its a really short read!

    This was a short, sweet, endearing story. Two military people meet on a flight. Connecting flight gets canceled due to weather. Woman needs to get home to see her son on her 2 days leave. Man promises to get her there. There's some sexy moments, some sweet moments, and ones to make you smile. This is worth taking time to curl up with a blanket on a Sunday afternoon and read. There's nothing overtly deep to it, nothing to make you go, WOW, it's just short and simple.

    Got this from Amazon Prime's lending library. It is a fairly cute, sweet and in one part steamy romance. Sure it came together in a questionably realistic HEA but that is why I read this type of thing- so I know everything will end super happy regardless of the likelihood (hey- it could happen- don't judge me!). Don't think to much on the details on this one and just enjoy the story for what it is.

    "The Navy Seal's Promise" is a sweet story of finding love in the most unexpected circumstances. Saskia and Luke have many broken pieces from prior relationships and hardships. I enjoyed their story. No kindle gripping moments. No over thinking. Just an easy light story that was perfect heading into the holidays.

    When I cracked open this book last night at 9 I didn't anticipate finishing it by 10:30. It's very short, easy to read and has a happy ending. Not much else to say. I did like that the military was portrayed in a positive light and to have 2 branches get together was unique. If you're looking for a really quick read, borrow it from my library and enjoy.

    I got this for free on amazon. I havent read anything by this author before and it was a nice surprise . I enjoyed the story, a mom trying to get home to her son and a navy seal helps her get there, a snow storm and some chemistry between them and you have a nice quick read. It was worth the time to read.

    This book was good, for what it was. Short, sweet and to the point can never be bad, right? My only disappointment was the "sizzle". They kept talking about their attraction, but when it came time, there wasn't any real spark. The stuff with her son was touching, it even had me choked up! A good, quick read!

    Really enjoyable characters. I loved their interaction over trivial things and the one big thing, getting her home to her son on such a short leave. The hero comes through with flying colors and then some. The ending is sublime. Adult read

    Short and utterly romantic. Luke was yummy, the characters were very natural and straightforward, they both had a past. I got all emotional with some bits, especially the ones related to her son....being a mom myself makes me weep when I read about sad little boys.

    This story was a perfect example of an extremely well written short story. The length had no impact on the terrific character development and perfect plot. It was about choosing the moments to be showcased and glossing over unnecessary details.

    A sweet and sexy novella, featuring an Army heroine and a SEAL hero. Plenty of emotion packed into a short read. And the sparks created between Luke and Saskia are great! A wonderfully satisfying read.

    This was a good story about two military people on leave during a snow storm. It was told without a lot of unnecessary beating around the bush and repetition in the story. It is told forthright and is interesting. I will be reading this author again.

    This was a great, easy read. I caught myself tearing up at parts as I got excited and sad along with the characters in the boom. The sex scene was a bit much, but everything else was wonderful.
