When Gavin Blackstock lost a leg in an IED explosion defending his country, he lost his job, his friends and his chances for a normal life with a wife and children. He figures he won't ever find a bride who will accept him as an incomplete man. Until a friend points him to a mail-order bride service.

Wanted: Bride to live on a ranch in Montana. Must be willing to work hard and bear children.

As a princess of a small European nation, Aurelia St. George is required to marry and produce an heir before her thirtieth birthday or the kingdom will fall under the rule of the next person in the royal lineage. After two consecutive fiancé's die before she can wed them, Aurelia is convinced she will have to go into stealth-mode to find a husband. Aurelia stumbles on an ad for a mail-order bride that might be just what she needs to meet her royal deadline. Not only is the man willing, but she can hide in Montana until her birthday and the birth of her baby.

Response: Woman with biological clock ticking seeks groom with a family in mind. Willing to work hard and bear children.

Gavin can't believe his luck when his pretty bride arrives, but soon finds out he's got to protect her or lose her. Together, they navigate a wedding that could potentially be under fire, only to lose their hearts in the process.

Montana SEAL's Mail-Order Bride is the twelfth book in the Brotherhood Protectors series by Elle James. Gavin Blackstock thought he would be a career SEAL, but that didn't happen when his last mission left him missing part of one leg. Now at the age 35 and living on the Brighter Days Rehabilitation Ranch in Montana he is feeling like he is missing out on falling in love and someday having a family. When one of the other residents puts his application online looking for a mail-order bride, Gavin is really surprised when women actually respond to it. Olivia Aurelia St. George has to find a husband and produce an heir by her 30th birthday, but both of her fiances have died before they had been able to marry. Olivia, her best friend and her bodyguard all believe that her life is in danger also and think she should go away until things settle down. The only problem is she also must find a husband so when her friend finds the add for a mail-order bride online they all believe it is the perfect plan. Gavin and Olivia realize they are attracted to each other right away, but if they are to marry they want to like each other also so spending time getting to know one another is important. Olivia however feels that their marriage should at least be based on trust, if not love and starts to feel guilty about not telling Gavin the truth. When she finally does it might be too late because the danger has found her in Montana. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Montana Seal’s Mail Order Bride is book 12 in the Brotherhood Protectors series by Elle James and another great addition to the series. Gavin Blackstock, a former Navy Seal who lost his leg defending his country feels he also lost his chance at a normal life with a wife and kids because who would want a man with only one he decides to sign up for a mail order bride. Little does he know that when his mail order bride, Aurelia shows up there’s more to her than meets the eye!, Suspense, sparks fly, lots of action, a princess and finding their HEA!!

Gavin Blackstock, a former Navy Seal, is restless. He loves working with horses on the ranch, but is unsatisfied with his personal life. He wants what several of his friends have, family, and children. While he truly believes no one could love an “incomplete” man, he still dreams of a happily ever after. Gavin has found once women find out he’s missing a leg, they lose interest. So his friend, Lori, posts an ad seeking a mail order bride on his behalf. Princess Olivia St. George of Lastovia is in desperate need of a husband. In order to become Queen, Olivia (Aurelia), must marry and produce an heir by the age of thirty...She has less than a year. Every time she becomes engaged, her fiancés die “unexpectedly”. Going by the name Aurelia, she responds to Gavin’s ad and heads to Montana. She doesn’t really believe this will be her HEA, but hopes Gavin will provide her with an heir. This is my first Mail Order Bride, insta-love novel and I LOVED it! Gavin and Aurelia were a perfect match! After losing his leg in combat, Gavin felt unworthy of love. Aurelia saw the real Gavin and accepted him for who he was. Gavin provided Aurelia with a sense of safety, belonging, and family that she had been missing since the unexpected deaths of her family. At the ranch, Aurelia was free to enjoy activities, horses, etc that she no longer made time for in Lastovia. The sniper and suspense had me on edge! I can’t wait to find out what’s in store for Lori! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

Where do you go when you want a wife and kids, but haven't had any luck finding one? Gavin believes he will never have his dream until his friend Lori posts an ad for him on a mail order bride site. Enter his dream woman. Oh wait, maybe not quite the dream he expected. She's lost two fiances previously and needs to disappear, get married and have a baby all in ten months. Looks like he's her dream come true. Until ... This book contains adventure, mayhem, marriage, love and horses whispering. It is a good blend of everything. Definitely a quick read with intrigue and a HEA.

I enjoyed this addition to the Brotherhood Protector series. I didn't want to put down Gavin and Aurelia's story. The characters are interesting, well-developed, and have great chemistry. It was a fast paced, quick and entertaining read. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Elle James just continues to impress! Montana SEAL's Mail-Order Bride is another fantastic story with a cast of characters that is stellar. Ms. James once again delivers a well-written book that's fun to read but at the same time reminds us we have heroes to be thankful for. Gavin is a former SEAL working at Brighter Days Rehabilitation Ranch. He's "one leg short of a pair" and believes no woman would want to marry him because of his missing leg. Olivia is a princess of a small country. After two engagements end in death before the wedding she knows someone is trying to stop her from inheriting the title. Olivia and Gavin's story is loaded with drama, humor, sexy bits, action and suspense. This book held me captive from start to finish and I can't wait for my next book by Elle James. Montana SEAL's Mail-Order Bride is book 12 of the Brotherhood Protectors Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from Prolific Works. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This is book 12 in the Brotherhood Protectors series and it features Gavin and Aurelia. This was not a match made in heaven but more like a match made on the Internet on a mail-order bride website. This action packed, sweet romance has a little steam and a lot of fantastic characters. Mail-order brides are from way back in the western horse and buggy days but this fabulous author has made it into a modern day romance.

This story starts with two people who don't think they will ever find the true happiness they desire. Gavin is a former Navy Seal who has lost a leg in combat and is now working at the Brighter Days Rehabilitation Ranch. He's sure no woman will truly want him with only one leg. Olivia St George is the princess of Lastovia and next in line to take the throne. She knows most men are not going to truly love her but only want her for the throne. When Gavin is talked into placing an online ad for a mail-order bride Olivia answers thinking it may just fit exactly her requirements. She needs to be married and have an heir in the next ten months to take her throne. As the day arrives for them to meet in person they are drawn to each other, but trust each other may take a little longer to happen especially with Olivia keeping a big secret that just might get Gavin killed. I enjoyed the story and getting acquainted with the other guest at the Brighter Days Rehabilitation Ranch along with the animals they save. Good afternoon romance with a little suspense. I received an ARC copy of this book and have chosen to leave a review.

Gavin Blackstock sees no way a woman would want to settle down and start a family with him now. Even when his friend signs him up for a mail-order-bride, he’s doubtful it’ll succeed. Princess Olivia (Aurelia) needs a husband and a baby if she hopes to keep her family’s legacy, but someone’s taking drastic steps to ensure that doesn’t happen. Being a mail-order-bride may be her only answer and her last chance. This is an engaging tale with charming characters and an intriguing storyline. It’s apparent from the first that Gavin and Aurelia are meant for each other. Their attraction is immediate, and their chemistry is strong. Although it may be obvious they’re meant for each other, Aurelia has secrets that could mean their end in more ways than one. She didn’t leave the danger behind, and as the threats increase it could really be their end. I recommend this fast-paced, entertaining and appealing addition to this wonderful series!
