Publisher's Summary

Living in Southern California, Cheyenne was used to seeing hot military men as she went about her daily business. An anonymous encounter at the grocery store cemented her crush on one such man. He was big, built, and incredibly easy on the eyes, but it wasn't as if he would ever really notice her.

Always in control of any situation, Faulkner "Dude" Cooper knows explosives. As a bomb expert, he's lived through many high pressure situations. Disfigured by a bomb while on a mission, he's used to being looked at with pity. When he's called to a local supermarket to assist the local PD, the last thing he expects to find is a generous act of kindness performed by a beautiful, amazing woman. Enchanted by her selflessness in the face of danger and intrigued by her actions to save civilians she didn't know, Dude's hooked.

Dude was able to save Cheyenne from the group of thugs trying to take her life, but when the past comes back to haunt them both, sometimes having the knowledge and the desire isn't enough to beat the countdown of the clock.

Protecting Cheyenne is the fifth book in the SEAL of Protection Series. It can be listened to as a stand-alone, but it's recommended you hear the books in order to get maximum enjoyment out of the series.

A little too submissive for a heroine

not the best story line the 2nd least listening I liked. Alabama being the first. when they don't have missions including their women, it's a little lame. dude is bossier than expected and Cheyenne isn't convincing me that she likes it...except the bedroom. one comment said it was mild BDSM ..not really. another said sex explicit..defiinatelly not and the 3rd comment was why grown up women had to get drunk...... girls night out,...what more can you say? I like susan stoker and pushing through these till her next series. the next I believe is domestic violence...so I gathered....I'll read on

Minor submissive/master

If you could sum up Protecting Cheyenne in three words, what would they be?

Bombs Bound Aggressive

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It really kept me listening. I had a little trouble with the bad guys - they weren't put together but that helped the rescue scene. The whole rescue scene had me holding my breath.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I am usually not keen on submissive/master type romance. That doesn't mean that I didn't like the story - there has to be differences because otherwise there would only be one story. This was only a minor submissive/master - not anything too hard core.

Interesting...

All the women in these stories are so insecure, wonder how real Seals feel about that portrail.

Good love story.

I'm enjoying the series, these guys are good alpha protectors. I do think "Dude" was a little over the top controlling. The must be home by this time and so on was a little annoying. Other than that he was a great guy.

Loved this installment!

Really enjoyed the story of Cheyenne, the 911 operator. Her family sucked. The fact that Dude was a bomb tech was fascinating. Wonderful HEA! Good to catch up with the other couples. Stella Bloom is a fabulous narrator.

Another favorite

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve both read and listened to this book, and all the others in the series. I know there are a lot of military books out there, especially Navy Seals, but they’re all poor imitations of Ms. Stoker’s heroes. And let’s not leave out the strong, capable women they save and love. Because the heroins always save their men right back. Nonstop action, amazing dialogue, plot lines that perfectly mesh reality with excitement and romance. Each is a stand alone, though I admit I read them in order. And this review would not be complete without mentioning the wonderful narration of Stella Bloom.

Entertaining and cute - I’m loving the entire saga. 911 operators are unsung heroes. Dude is dominance personified. Kinda upset with the way Cheyenne was written. Whiney women are not ok. My goodness can these women catch a break.

No. Just no.

This is far and away the worst story of the series. I’m hoping the stories of Benny and Tex will be top shelf.

I thoroughly enjoyed Dude, Falconer and Cheyenne's story. After reading some of the reviews; I was skeptical about it but went ahead. I'm glad I did. Some of the reviews had some merits in that there is a predictability to the stories and seem to follow a sort of formula to each story. For me right now, even knowing that, it is entertaining. There are certain aspects I don't appreciate; the emphasis on drinking, getting drunk, and the girls night in or out. I would think they are old enough to not need to get drunk to have fun but I over look all that to the characters. The characters are strong and love intensely. Stella Bloom did a great job portraying the characters and narration was top notch.

It looks like the team will be tamed!

Overly aggressive strong alpha males... ✔️ Damsels in distress turned into strong women... ✔️ Rescues from evil bad guys with love as the reward... ✔️ Angst, drama, romance, superhero sex... ✔️ Definitely a fun and entertaining series!

Great book in series!

I really enjoyed Dude and Cheyenne’s love story. Since Dude is a demolition expert, he gets called by the local police to help with a bomb threat at the local Kroger. There he meets Cheyenne who has been taken hostage and strapped with a bomb. He gets her free of it and falls for her while doing so. Unfortunately, the relatives of some of the criminals killed during the situation have not forgotten her role and are out for revenge. Narration was excellent!

Protecting Cheyenne

Love listening to Stella Bloom. Being the bomb specialist of the group it comes as no real surprise when he is asked to assist in possible bomb threat during an armed hold up in a local supermarket. Accustomed to the danger and dramatics of his job Dude is unfazed when he enters the store and finds one of the gunmen has strapped a bomb to a customers body. However, he is not prepared for the intense connection he immediately feels for the woman. Cheyenne was completely lovable and had me in fits of hysterics with inability to filter her thoughts when she was on medication or when she inadvertently says what she is thinking. It provides such a nice contrast to her usual quiet and reserved side. Though she stands up to Caroline/Ice with no problems I have a such a soft spot for this book. I can see the scene on the beach , I thought that was so wonderfully written.

Thoroughly enjoyable

I loved the interaction between Dude and Cheyenne. The D/s aspects won't work for everyone, but I felt it was well done and made sense for both of them. It would be easy to say that Cheyenne is weak, but she has a very strong sense of what's right and will do whatever she feels she has to. She does have a need to please and a lot of insecurities, which Dude is able to support and soothe. Her unfiltered reaction when she's on morphine is hilarious and made me laugh out loud. Dude is a fantasy and his tender yet controlling behaviour made me melt - although it's not something I'd ever want in RL.
