A SEAL Always Wins

Sourcebooks Casablanca. (Texas Navy SEALs, Bk. 2). Feb. 2020. 352p. ISBN 9781492680956. pap. $7.99;. ROMANTIC SUSPENSE
If Enrique “Phantom” Ramirez wants to build a successful quarter horse program at Bent Horseshoe Ranch, he’s going to need trainer Elena Garcia. Elena is thrilled to have the horses of Bent Horseshoe back in her rotation and happily surprised when Phantom takes a hands-on approach to learning all the ins and outs of the show circuit. As they work together, their attraction grows, and when they are forced to share a bed, it turns physical. Phantom isn’t here to develop a relationship with Elena, though, but to pursue leads into the criminal organization developing along the border. And when he uncovers a potential human trafficking organization at one of the shows, his secrets are not only a problem for his relationship with Elena but a risk that endangers her. Elena is no shrinking violet, however, and she’s determined to puzzle out Phantom’s mystery and help bring down the ring.
VERDICT Castillo’s sultry suspense keeps the pages turning as the broader mystery expands in this satisfying second series entry (after A SEAL Never Quits).
