Subject: Navy SEAL Lieutenant Dominic Castillo

Mission: Protect—not seduce!—his sexy target

Dominic Castillo loves his SEAL team like brothers—except one, who made sure Castillo was left behind during the latest mission. But when his rival is kidnapped by a vicious drug lord, Castillo receives a black ops mission of his own: protect his rival's sister. And any mistakes will either result in her death…or his.

Lara Banks clearly has no interest in being protected by a military man, especially an acquaintance of her estranged brother. So why is she doing her best to drive him crazy with pure temptation? Lara insists on having her naughty way with him—over and over—but is fulfilling their fantasies worth the price?

Read an Excerpt

There was nothing like a little bare skin to turn twenty adult men into drooling adolescents. Throw in a long, hard pole and a pair of glittery high heels, and they were a sad bunch of throbbing glands.

"Take it off, baby. Show us what you got."

As if she'd been waiting for those lovely and enticing instructions, the stripper offered a sharp smile and, quick as a whip, yanked her dress in half and threw it across the room.

Dominic Castillo listened to his brothers and cousins whoop and holler, half of them waving dollar bills as if they were winning lottery tickets and the stripper their prize. Once he'd have been right there with them, front and center. Not that he'd have to call out lame suggestions and wave money to get her attention. Nope, all Dominic needed was his charming smile to beat out all of his relatives for the sexy woman's attention.

But tonight his dollars were safe in his pocket and here he was, on the quiet side of the bar, sucking down a soda and wondering what the hell had happened to his life.

A year—damn, six months—ago everything had been golden. He'd been a kick-ass SEAL rocking his way up the ranks, carrying out death-defying missions and loving every second of it. Women flocked to him; he had a great family and a brotherhood of SEALs who had his back and kept life fun.

Hell, he used to wake up most mornings expecting to see a big ole S on his chest.

Used to.

Now?

He carefully shifted his head from one side to the other, glad his brain stayed put.

He'd gone on dozens of missions in his five years as a SEAL. His solid muscles and the scars were a tribute to his dedication to his career. He'd been hurt plenty of times. He'd dodged bullets, pulled shrapnel out of his boot and, on one memorable occasion, plummeted through the sky when the team's plane took on heavy fire.

Now he was sitting on his butt while his teammates carried out a mission he'd spent the past few months training for. All because of an equipment malfunction while he'd been fast-roping from a helicopter. When the cable snapped, he'd only dropped ten feet, but the impact had left him bruised, aching and sporting a severe concussion.

And feeling like a loser.

He blamed Banks. Lieutenant Phillip Banks, the biggest pain in the ass to ever earn the SEAL trident.

"I didn't think you were going to be able to make it until the wedding," Lucas said, watching the show with a bored look.

"Miss my little cousin's bachelor party? Bite your tongue." Dominic forced a smile for his big brother's sake. And, of course, to keep Lucas off his back. If his brother knew he'd been released from a doctor's supervision less than a dozen hours ago, he'd nag like crazy.

"You mean you didn't want to miss Lotta Oomph shaking her stuff," Lucas said, snickering.

"I've seen plenty of shaking in my time," Dominic replied dismissively, even while acknowledging that Lotta had an impressive shake. "Thirty states and eight countries, big brother. Can you top that?"

Lucas considered his beer bottle for a second, then tilted it and his head to one side. "Saw triplets pole dancing with their trained dogs in Reno once."

"Matching dogs?"

"Right down to their spots."

Dominic pursed his lips, imagining what that might have looked like, then gave his brother a nod.

"That's worth at least ten states, China and Mexico," he decided.

"I was in Mexico on a case two years ago. Gotta say, my job doesn't take me to many strip joints. Guess we know which one of us works harder."

As if, Dominic snickered.

Lucas ran Castillo Security. Providing private and corporate security for the past twenty years, Castillo was a family business, and it and their parents' ranch employed, well, the entire family. Four generations of Castillos lived in Seaside, the tiny town in Sonoma founded by Dominic's great-grandfather. From his grandfather Ramon to his little sister, Celia, they bred show horses, built security systems and provided bodyguards.

Except Dominic.

Dominic was a Navy SEAL.

The first, and so far the only, Castillo not pulling in an income from the family corporation. Which he'd worked damned hard for. When a guy grew up in a family as big as the Castillos', standing out wasn't easy. He'd never be as smart as Lucas or as sneaky as Marco. At six-four, he wasn't even as tall as Jose.

What he was was his own man.

The one everyone came to for help. Advice. Directions, even. He was hell on wheels when it came to directions. Handy, since he generally served as the point man and navigator for his SEAL team. Something he was proud of.

"Seriously," Lucas said, interrupting his mental back patting. "I thought Joe said you weren't gonna make it home for the party. What changed?"

Buying time, Dominic took a drink, the cola doing nothing to relax his aching muscles. A beer would go down sweet right now. A half dozen of them would go a long way to ease the pain racking his body. But the doctor had warned that severe concussions and alcohol were a bad mix for the next few days.

"The team is on a mission, I'm not. That means I could snag an extra week's leave and come home."

Lotta started her countdown, tossing her spangled bra into the rowdy crowd, then taking a few swings around her pole. Dominic made a show of watching, hoping Lucas would let the conversation die if he seemed fascinated by silicone so tight it didn't even sway as the stripper spun.

"Your team is on a mission and you're not?" Lucas asked, an intense frown creasing his brows. "What happened? Turning yellow?"

"I can still kick your ass." Dominic matched his brother's glower. Then he shrugged. "They didn't need me for this one. Plenty of them speak the language and I needed some downtime."

And a little distance.

There was no way in hell he could sit around the barracks, resting, while the team kicked mission ass.

The SEAL team was like a brotherhood. Every man had the other's back. Every man knew he was a part of the team, each one vital to the success of their missions. They lived together, they trained together, they fought together.

Sometimes it was the best deal in the world. Sometimes it sucked.

Dominic had grown up with five siblings. He knew that life wasn't always smooth, that all relationships had plenty of ups and downs.

What he didn't know was how to deal with a guy who wasn't a part of the brotherhood. Who didn't fit, didn't even try to fit.

Especially when that guy was, thanks to his irritatingly stellar record, now the ranking officer on the team.

Who was so by-the-book uptight that he made Dominic sit out on a hot mission because the helicopter launched at 0700 and Dominic's medical profile said he was grounded until 0830. Hell, they wouldn't even have reached their destination by then. He could have gone if it wasn't for Banks's uptight ass.

Instead, the jerk had taken the team one man short and left Dominic feeling like a let down loser.

He freaking hated that guy.

"I'm thinking about transferring," he muttered.

His eyes wide enough to pop out of his head, Lucas dropped his chair flat, the front legs hitting the floor with a bang.

"Out of the SEALs?"

Dominic had taken a bullet, broken multiple bones and was currently sporting bruises down to the bone over three-quarters of his body, not to mention a concussion hangover and a weak ankle.

But none of them hurt like the idea of leaving the SEALs.

"Hell, no. Just, you know, transfer. Virginia, Hawaii.

SEALs are based other places besides Coronado. I might like to see a few, you know."

"Because thirty states and eight countries aren't enough?"

"I saw this act in Oahu once. Erotic fire dancer." Dominic blew out a breath, then fanned his hand in the air as if cooling off the memory. "Let me tell ya, a woman who dances naked with a flaming baton knows her way around big, hot sticks."

Lucas winced and shook his head.

"Sad, little brother. If that lame story is the best distraction you can offer up, you've obviously got something bugging you." He waited a beat, as if giving Dominic an opening to confess. But Dom did the advising—he didn't go looking for it. Finally, Lucas shrugged and lifted his beer again.

"You wanna talk, you know where I am," he offered.

Dominic nodded, even though they both knew he wouldn't take him up on it.

Not because he was such a snob that he couldn't reach out from time to time for a little guidance. But there was a reason he was the advice guy. In the family, on the team, with his friends. He knew stuff. Military stuff, girl stuff, sex stuff. Thanks to his nana, he even knew cooking stuff.

He stared at his drink, muscles aching and head throbbing.

It was a damned shame he didn't know what to do for his own stuff.

Two hours and three Motrin later he poured three cousins and one of his brothers into a limo. Patting the hood, he signaled the driver to hit the road.

Hands in the front pockets of his jeans, Dominic laughed as Marco popped his head out of the sunroof to serenade him with "Happy Birthday."

"It your birthday, big boy?"

He turned, grin in place, to watch the woman saunter over. Even fully clothed, Lotta still exuded sex the way some women wore perfume. Strong, heady and inviting.

"Nope. He's having a tequila-inspired calendar mix-up," Dominic told her.

"Too bad. I was gonna offer you a little birthday goodie," she said when she stopped in front of him. He wanted to tell her she'd be a lot prettier with about half as much makeup on, but didn't figure it was his advice she was interested in.

"I watched you while I danced."

Dominic looked down, noting that all it'd take was a cold breeze across her thin blouse to bring their bodies into contact.

Then he met her eyes, the hot interest and hard edge. Message received.

"Isn't that a coincidence? I watched you, too," he said, giving her his most charming smile. He wasn't interested—yet another thing he figured he could blame Banks for—but he didn't believe in leaving women disappointed. He might not be going to give her a wild ride, but there was no reason not to make her feel good. In a fully clothed kind of way.

"Did you like what you saw?" she asked, her tone saying she had no doubts about that at all. She moved closer, so close that her ice-pick nipples stabbed his chest. Dominic had to wonder if she'd blasted those babies full of silicone, too.

"You do know your way around a pole."

"I do good work with long and hard."

"I don't doubt that."

Dominic looked her over again. He had a special appreciation for dancers. They were so damned good with their bodies.

Rethinking his body's aches and pains, he debated a little naked boogie with the stripper. He did a quick check to see if lust was stronger than bruises.

Nope. Not enough lust or too many bruises. Either way, he wasn't up for dancing.

Dammit.

"You interested in buying me a drink? I'll fill you in on some of my specialties."

The only reason the Castillo clan had vacated the club was because it'd been last call. Which meant the drinking destination Lotta had in mind was hers, his or of the rent-by-the hour variety.

Dominic loved women. Strippers, dancers, teachers, nurses. He'd dated them all. His only requirement was that the woman take the relationship as light and easy as he did.

He'd heard plenty of times that his sex life was better than most guys' fantasies.

But if he had one particular weakness when it came to the fairer sex, it was for dancers. Ballet, jazz, exotic, tap. It didn't matter. There was something about a woman who knew how to make the most of rhythm that drove him wild.

But even if his body had screamed otherwise, he just wasn't in the mood.

"Sorry, sweetheart," he said sincerely. "I'm not drinking tonight. Doctor's orders."

She narrowed her eyes, clearly wondering if that was a euphemism. Then she gave a good-natured shrug.

"You ever get released from those orders, you come back. I'll do a dance just for you." She skimmed her fingers up his chest, giving him a smile that promised that it'd be a dance to remember. Then she tapped her palm against his cheek and turned to go.

Dominic leaned back on his heels, his own smile turning a little cocky. He didn't get guys who bitched that women were a pain in the ass. Himself, he'd never met a woman who wasn't a pleasure, in or out of bed. All it took was a little charm and a friendly smile.

He watched the stripper walked away, her hips swinging a hot rhythm beneath her short skirt. For one second he regretted saying no. Then, as he shifted his weight, his body sang out a protest.

A part of him, mostly the part cozied up behind his zipper, wanted to call her back. Not out of undeniable lust or anything crazy like that. More to prove he could still make her see stars and sing hallelujah, even if half of his body was bruised and the other half a step up from numb.

As far as Dominic's dick—and admittedly, his ego—were concerned, he was a man with many talents, all of which made women sigh with pleasure. He was better at sex when he was half-asleep, totally drunk and/or straight off a ten-day mission from hell than most guys managed to be even in their wildest dreams. He was damned good-looking—a blessing owed more to the fine Castillo genes than any effort on his part. He was a formidable SEAL, a savvy sailor and a weapon the U.S. Navy should be giving thanks for on a daily basis. Okay, weekly. He was wise—the team always looked to him for advice, hence his call sign, Auntie. He was smart and good with money.

All but the first were characteristics his own sainted mother recited to any single woman she found worthy. And all, including the former, were reasons Dominic saw as vital to his goal of staying single. When a man was as blessed as he was, it'd be cruel to limit his gifts to just one woman.

He watched Lotta slide into her Miata and frowned.

Maybe a good time was just what Auntie ordered. A hot ride would be a nice distraction.

It only took him a second to brush it aside.

Resigned, he watched her headlights fade into the dark night and sighed. It wasn't his bruises or irritation that made him a bad bet tonight, he realized. It was the same nagging feeling that'd been dogging him for the last couple of months.

Dissatisfaction.

What the hell was up with that?

Dominic was a man who made a point to be satisfied. In every way, every chance he got. Some might say he specialized in it.

So why the hell was he so damned bored?

Bored, discontent and frustrated.

All new emotions, and not one of them welcome.

    Woman in danger + hot Navy SEAL = Home run for Tawny Weber!

    Lara Banks’ Navy SEAL brother is kidnapped by a drug lord. Usually this would be a problem, but she has been estranged from him for years, so when hunky and hot SEAL Dominic Castillo shows up to inform her that he is going to protect her, she balks. She has absolutely no interest in her brother, his kidnapping or having anything interfere with her life. The only thing she does have interest in is Dominic.
    Let the fun begin.
    Tawny has an amazing way of crafting a story that is believable, romantic and engaging. This was not my first Tawny read, and won’t be my last.

    The chemistry between these two is smokin HOT!! Dominic is sent to save Lara from the bad guys who have her brother. Lara does not want saved and has more or less sworn off men. She dances to pay her bills.

    This story is about to fire up a SEAL!!!

    Love Tawny's stories she combines laughs, steamy love, and suspense all into one sexy package.

    Once again a freaking great story!!

    I really enjoyed this story of Dominic Castillo, Navy SEAL and Lara Banks. Dominic thinks he is just on a mission to keep Lara safe
    while his team extracts her estranged brother from a mission gone bad. Lara doesn't know what to think because she hasn't even
    seen her brother in over 8 years and she runs away only to find trouble that Dominic saves her from.

    The chemistry is there for both of them from the start and both figure they will just scratch the itch until the mission is complete. Of
    course, fate has other plans and love blooms. Both still fight it. 

    Dominic doesn't know if Lara can accept being in a relationship with a SEAL because of the danger and Lara doesn't know if Dominic
     can accept her choice in careers either because she could be potentially in danger. Will they give it a try?

    I would highly recommend this book and I look forward to the next SEAL story

    Sexy Seal¿s!! Tawny has done it again with another Sexy Seal

    Sexy Seal’s!!




    Tawny has done it again with another Sexy Seal! This book is the 5th book in the Unifomly Hot Seals series, and these books keep getting better and better. They can be read as a standalone, but once you read one you will want to read them all. Who can resist sexy Seals? Dominic is a Seal and was injured during his last mission. Dominic wanted to go on the current mission with his team but Phillip Banks “Sir” grounded him due to his injuries. When “Sir” is kidnapped by a vicious drug lord, Dominic gets a call to go on a secret mission to track down and protect “Sir” estranged sister Lara. Dominic is not expecting a beautiful strong willed, independent woman who fights him at every turn. He is also caught off guard between the attraction he feels for Lara. Lara has no intention of letting Dominic protect her especially since he knows her estranged brother that is until the bad guys come after her. This book has it all humor, romance, mystery, suspense, and HOT alpha Seals, oh my!! I can’t wait until the next book comes out!!




    A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    Another great sexy SEAL by Tawny Weber! The chemistry between Dominic and Lara was smokin' hot!! Lara has been on her own for a long time then he estranged brother's life is going to turn her life upside down. Dominic is in charge of keeping Lara safe has a mission is put into motion. Putting two people together who don't want the attraction that they have for one another together is just asking for some fireworks. As these two try to coexist for the duration it's harder and harder to be indifferent. Dominic keeps some vital information from Lara when it comes to light will it blow up in his face? Can Lara understand why Dominic kept the info hush hush?

    Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I found this book to be pretty cute, even if the heroine might have had one or two too stupid to live moments. Granted, once she understood the gravity of the situation, it eased up, but still....




    Dominic - devoted to his SEAL brothers, I really liked the various layers that Ms. Weber built into Dominic, from his devotion to protecting one of his team, even if it was his not-so-likably officer, to keeping his eye on the asset (Lara). He definitely was a good, strong man without too many alphahole tendencies, even though there was no doubt about his alphaness.




    Lara - now there's a girl to respect. She knew what she wanted (to be a dancer) and when one avenue was taken away from her, she found another avenue for career (computer technology security).. I liked her brains, once she stopped being (understandably) suspicious of Dominic and how she kept her eye on her prize (finishing her degree) even as she was dodging bad guys.




    The romance didn't feel forced to me, which can be tricky in category-length romances, and the secondary cast didn't overwhelm the main plot. I really enjoyed Lara and the slow beginning of a relationship with her long-estranged brother.




    Glad I read it and happy to give it a four-gargoyle rating.

    Tawny does it again with another story in her series about SEALs

    Tawny does it again with another story in her series about SEALs. Dominic Castillo's commanding officer is kidnapped while on a mission 
    so his job is to find his rival's estranged sister before she is attacked. Lara Banks doesn't want to be protected and tells Dominic she doesn't
    have a brother. Problem is that she is attracted to Dom from the get go. 
    This is a great story and my favorite part of the whole thing was how strong Lara was and wasn't a pushover for anything. Perfect fit for Dominic.
    Tawny Weber never disappoints!

    A fun installment in the Uniformly Hot SEALs series by Tawny Web

    A fun installment in the Uniformly Hot SEALs series by Tawny Weber.


    Dominic Castillo is a SEAL through and through; while he's not a huge fan of his current team leader, he's still a team player and when said leader is captured during a mission, he follows orders to protect the guy's sister. He had no idea that this sister would be temptation wrapped up in one gorgeous package.


    Lara Banks is the sister in question, and she initially doesn't take well to being told she needs "protection." She's been estranged from her brother and family for years, and she's been taking care of herself just fine. She's got a job and classes that she's committed to and doesn't need what seems like a needless disruption of her life.


    Lara and Dominic are good leads--interesting on their own, together obviously they're destined to make magic :) They DO make a bad choice or two, but Ms. Weber does get them back on track and this is ultimately a delicious SEAL read. Looking forward to the next!

    Dominic and Lara are combustible. The Navy Seal and the showgirl

    Dominic and Lara are combustible. The Navy Seal and the showgirl. Her brother is his superior and estranged from her for eight years.

    Dominic is used to being the one everyone goes to, the one with all the answers. Lara had enough of her family trying to run her life and
     she doesn't need a man to tell her what to do. When Lara's brother runs into trouble on a mission, Dom is supposed to protect her, but
     she doesn't think she needs protection. All she wants is to get on with her life without interference from anyone else.
    They both have a lot to learn.

    Dominic Castillo, an injured Navy SEAL beached while his team went on a mission, must protect Lara Banks, the sister of his hard-assed commander when the commander is captured on the mission. Protecting Lara becomes critical to getting her brother out safely – if Lara is captured by the bad guys, she can be used as leverage. Lara has no interest in any man, especially not a sexy SEAL who proclaims to know her estranged brother. Dominic hates playing babysitter until he sees her dancing on stage in a skimpy outfit and his hormones stand up and dance. Close quarters, hot showers, and a sexy motorcycle bike ride later and you have the makings for another hot, sexy read by Tawny Weber.

    I love sexy category romances and this one did not disappoint. The pacing was fast, the sex hot, and the dialogue snappy. Lara didn’t roll over and play dead for the alpha Dominic, but met him toe to toe for everything. Dominic was so sexy and funny too. I loved this book and the rest in the series. Now, after the reading the ending of this, I can’t wait to see what she does with Phillip (the next book for those of you who also fall in love with the series).

    Navy SEAL Dominic Castillo had no idea that being left behind when his team was sent on a mission would have such an impact on his life. Lara Banks didn't think her life could get any crazier until a certain SEAL shows up! This is a wonderfully fun and sexy read. Great writing and characters will keep you completely entertained. I highly recommend this one!

    I love Dominic Castillo, and I¿m happy that he¿s the hero of A S

    I love Dominic Castillo, and I’m happy that he’s the hero of A SEAL’s Fantasy: I wanted to know more about him; he’s fascinating, tough but sweet and gentle. Lara Banks is just as resilient under all the glitter and feathers. When it seems her life could be threatened, Dominic is the one who is sent to guard her. He doesn’t like the glorified baby-sitting job, but keeping an eye on a beautiful woman makes the task easier. When he lets go of the fact that she’s more than just the sister of his foe, and she opens her heart, sparks fly! It’s a fabulous book: very romantic, sexy, with some adventures thrown in; don’t miss it, it was worth waiting for!
