Publisher's Summary

It only took a moment for him to know she was his.

Navy SEAL Kane McNamara has his mission. Four potential terrorist targets in Oman. His job is to keep everyone safe and try to figure out where Al-Qaeda will strike next. Guarding an international music show is on the bottom of Kane’s list, until he meets the woman organizing the event. Then, all bets are off. She’s fun, feisty, and their chemistry is off the charts.

Has she finally met her match? 

A.J. Lancaster has never met anyone like Kane. Nobody's ever given her this much crap or been this much fun. Her job doesn't give her a spare second to think, but she'll make time to flirt with the most interesting man she's ever met. The fact that he’s insanely gorgeous in that rough mountain man sort of way might also be why she’s taking a minute to enjoy some man candy.

It's turning deadly...fast 

Soon, Kane, A.J., and the rest of the Night Storm SEAL team realize the music show is the next target. 

When bullets fly, it’s down to Kane and his team to stop Al-Qaeda’s plans, and Kane must ensure that the stubborn woman he loves stays alive, so they can have their chance at a happy ending.

well done

first listen to this author and it was great. at 1st i thought, too much mission which is a surprise for me but then it unfolded. I found the romance side so refreshing. no angst or rethinking of love and attraction. it was sensible a love relationship and great plot and steamy scenes included.
loved it and narrators

What a book!!

This story has everything. It has banter between the two main characters, laughs, steam and lots of suspense. Ryan West and Savannah Richards were fantastic. The two of them made the story come alive and very enjoyable. I highly recommend it if you like an alpha SEAL and a feisty heroine. I received a copy of this audiobook from Audiobook Boom and I am leaving my 100% honest review.

Excellent to listen to!

Haha! Loved this right outta the gate. Laughing at the dialogue as I get to hear someone other than my mind talking. Intense situations and Hot chemistry between two very strong mains, plus the plot to kill innocents that needs to be stopped makes for some serious listening. The random "A" names that Kane keeps coming up with is just snort laugh worthy!
I prefer the male narrator, tho I have to say the female narrator nailed A.J.' sexuality.

More military than romance

This book is more military than romance. I enjoyed the audiobook but it was not really for me. It was well written and the story was good but I am not really into military stories.

I thought there would be more romance so I thought I would try it. If mostly military stories with a bit of romance is your thing then you will enjoy this book. If romance with a touch of military is what you prefer then you may want to think twice.

I really liked the narrators. Both done a great job.

audio made me love it more!

Written filled with adventure, drama, and cute flirty fun, Her Ruthless Protector is sure to satisfy!

I loved the way Kane and AJ connected and interacted, and seeing AJ through Kane's eyes - that was a powerful thing to experience and let sink into me. I loved seeing how they could each hold their own, but yet, were amazing partners, both in the bedroom and out. AJ complimented Kane well with her backbone, her smarts, and her heart.

Seeing this is a military story as much as a romance story, bullets fly and bad guys abound everywhere, giving just the right amount of suspense and anxiety. Dealing with the enemy and the powers-that-be, and choosing what is right over what is ordered, and showing what having your brother's back truly mean, the military story line packs a punch.

Mix together the twist and turns, tear-filled moments, steamy moments, and laughter-ringing times and you've got another awesome Caitlyn O'Leary story to escape into.

The narrators did an amazing job bringing this story to life. Their use of voices and inflections embodied the characters fully and matched exactly what I expected. In fact, while I loved the story originally, the narration of it made me enjoy the story that much more. Bravo!!

Lucy pearson

This book is a great beginning for this series. I loved it. It is about Navy Seals in Yemen trying to stop a terrorist strike on a musical show. It is also a love story and it has plenty of suspense and action. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. The narration was terrific and it was done right.

A Great Military Romance!

This was my first Caitlyn O'Leary's book, and won't be my last. This is the first book in the Night Storm Series, a military romance. I loved it! Kane and A.J. are great characters, and they share an instant attraction and a strong chemistry. A.J. is a beautiful woman, strong, and feisty. Kane is handsome, protective and supportive. The story has it all: fun, sexy, suspenseful, fast-paced and action packed, filled with danger, and twists and turns. The storyline is great, and the world building is complex and well done. Ryan West, and Savannah Richards did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next book in the Series.

Action and romance!

This was a great listen. I enjoyed both the author and narrator. I particularly LOVE when there is both a male and female narrator! A.J. and Kane made a great team and the narrators made this all the more fun to listen to. Can't wait to read more. I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Her Ruthless Protector

Kane is a member of the SEALs and his latest assignment takes him to the Middle East where his team finds a bunch of electronics and when they start to work their way through it they discover another threat and that is how he meets A.J. She is the producer of a variety/talent show like America's Got Talent but it encompasses different countries and is being staged in Oman. The show has already been plagued with pranks but when she is introduced to the new security team she realizes it may be more serious than she thought. Kane and A.J. are great together. They fit and they work well together. She understands him and his "job" and he works just as hard to not only keep her safe but help her with her job. The banter between them is perfect and add in the rest of the team and there are times of laughing in between the suspense and intrigue. This one was really good and I enjoyed having it in audio.

More action than romance, but I enjoyed it!

This was a great story, it just didn't have enough romance and sexual tension for me. It was a lot more of Kane's POV and SEAL activity. Both narrators did a great job, too. I'd still recommend it to friends that like more action than romance.
