Romance Suspense

Navy SEAL Davy Graziano is a happy-go-lucky lady killer, so nobody is surprised when he goes for some "local action" at a fellow SEAL's wedding.

But JJ Lewis turns out to be a generous, beautiful businesswoman and civic leader, and Davy's gotten in way over his head. She's got motives to find herself a husband double-quick and she has the brilliant idea of picking a military husband who'll be away on tours of duty and she won't have to deal with him much. She allows Davy to think he's seduced her at the wedding, but that one nightstand was all the interview process she needed.

Davy has ulterior motives of his own to accept her out-of-the-blue marriage proposal, which is supposed to be strictly a business proposition. But it doesn't take long after the wedding ceremony for both of them to discover they've gotten a lot more than they bargained for.

Re: SEALed with a Ring

I'll be around today to answer questions
and respond to comments. Good luck,

Can't go wrong with a "seduction by rumba!"

Enjoyed your blog very much, and the book sounds great.

Yes, let's dance, and sing, and be joyful.
Betty Cox 10:02am March 5, 2010)

I love to dance, so I enjoy a good story with dancing as part of the ...hmmm... seduction?
Vikki Parman 11:12am March 5, 2010)

What a great story! Thanks for visiting. Congrats on the new release.
G S Moch 11:20am March 5, 2010)

I took a dance class my senior year of high school - it helped deal with the stress of graduating and was probably one of the best things I did for my posture.
Amber Leigh Williams 11:20am March 5, 2010)

When my younger son was 4 years old he had to get a full leg brace for his right leg which he had to wear for 3 years. He not only managed to climb trees but play baseball (the other kids all cheered as he ran the bases). When he first started dating his wife one of their first dates was to take dancing lessons. One of my favorite memories (and yes I did cry) was watching them waltz at their wedding!
Jeanne Miro 11:28am March 5, 2010)

This was such a lovely post and I'd love to read this book.
Leni Kaye 11:33am March 5, 2010)

All those years my parents and relatives kept telling me to stop slouching when taking dancing lessons solved my posture problem.
Kai Wong 1:02pm March 5, 2010)

I really enjoyed your post. I have always let fear of looking stupid keep me from dancing, but I love to watch others dance.Ballroom dancing is beautiful to watch. Put a Navy Seal in that setting and I would start drooling! I can hardly wait to read the book!
Patsy Hagen 1:17pm March 5, 2010)

I enjoy reading books about the Seals...and to combine it with ballroom dancing sounds delicious.
I have always had a secret yearning to learn how to dance, but never found the courage to go to a dance studio. Maybe it's time to rethink that:).
Robin McKay 1:55pm March 5, 2010)

Hmmm... love a guy that can dance!
Colleen Conklin 2:10pm March 5, 2010)

Hmm, this book sounds hot! I've got two left feet and no rhythm, so dancing has been pretty well out for me. But I love watching other people do it. And a SEAL, a wounded, recovering one at that? Great.
Sigrun Schulz 2:22pm March 5, 2010)

"Seduction by rumba." Love it, Betty!
Mary Margret Daughtridge 3:20pm March 5, 2010)

Vikki, that scene was put in at the
insistence of my editor. I was afraid the
book was already too long, but I went
with her suggestion, and I don't think I
ever had more fun writing anything
Mary Margret Daughtridge 3:25pm March 5, 2010)

Amber and Kai,
You both commented on posture. It's
true. Alyosha started every waltz
lesson by "fixing" my posture, and
then stopped and corrected me every
time I lost it.
Truth is both posture and grace are
largely a matter of strength. If you
practice ballroom, you WILL become
Mary Margret Daughtridge 3:30pm March 5, 2010)


Your post made me cry too. What a lovely
memory. Thanks for sharing it.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 3:32pm March 5, 2010)

Robin and Patsy,
Nobody ever put "She sure looked
foolish" on a tombstone.
Take a couple of introductory dance
lessons. If you hate it, don't do it
anymore, but I would tell anyone not
to let fear of looking foolish keep you
from living.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 3:40pm March 5, 2010)

I love stories with Seals and being of hispanic heritage I love to dance. With dance you can express so much emotion so I am not surprised to hear the seduction is begun with a rumba. Sounds like a great story.
Cherie Japp 3:43pm March 5, 2010)

So, Sigrun,
You love a wounded hero story, too? So
do I.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 3:43pm March 5, 2010)

If I remember my research correctly (I
don't always) the rumba originated in
Argentina where it is very free-form
and danced at family parties. At a
certain point, everybody dances from
grandmother down to the tots. Doesn't
that sound wonderful?
Mary Margret Daughtridge 3:55pm March 5, 2010)

Congrats on the new release, Mary Margret. It would be fun to take ballroom dance lessons. Do you have a favorite dance?
Jane Cheung 3:58pm March 5, 2010)

Congratulations on the new book. It's great that you tried something new and loved it.
Maureen Emmons 4:31pm March 5, 2010)

Ballroom dancing looks like such fun. If only I could get my hubby to take lessons with me! Congrats on your release!
G. Bisbjerg 4:32pm March 5, 2010)

Stacey Smith 5:16pm March 5, 2010)

sorry brain dead.What i was to say it looks like a fun book.and i can't wait to read it.put i bush comment before eny of that came out.silly me.
Stacey Smith 5:18pm March 5, 2010)

I was reared a Baptist and in the past Baptists did not dance. That has changed, but I, too, was an adult when I took ballroom dancing and I felt I had missed out on meeting a host of friends by not being about to dance while growing up. I had not attended dances held by the drill team of which I was a member nor had I attended my Senior prom. Your book sounds great and certainly has an unusual angle.
Gladys Paradowski 5:40pm March 5, 2010)

I love ballroom. I can't dance a step, so live vicariously. The book sounds wonderful.
Mary Preston 5:52pm March 5, 2010)

I enjoyed your blog and what a lovely story. I'll bet your dance instructor was thrilled with your gift. I love hearing stories from writer on the stuff it takes to get the story in their head onto the page. Thank you for the story.
Maude Allen 7:14pm March 5, 2010)

Your post today made me realize that you have to throw caution to the winds if you want to gain your heart's desire. Congratulations on your new release
Rosemary Krejsa 7:36pm March 5, 2010)

Well I love to watch dance and read about dance but I don't do it myself, spend alot of time carting my dd to dance practice and competitions though, sounds like a great book
Kelly Holt 7:41pm March 5, 2010)

Hey I took a set of ballroom dancing lessons with my husband at the time and he had lead and left feet. We had to pass a test to pay more money to take further lessons and of course, we passed with a lot of sweat. I fall back on those steps while watching all the ballroom dance steps on TV. It made me confident to try it for myself and put the lessons to good use.
Alyson Widen 8:26pm March 5, 2010)

I loved your first book; have the 2nd seal book on my tbr.

Looking forward to Sealed with a Ring.
Pat Lieberman 9:40pm March 5, 2010)

Please enter me in your fantastic contest and I pray that I win too. I love the website: freshfiction.com and enter and have even won some prizes at this great site.
Thanks and God bless, Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez [email protected]
Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez 9:44pm March 5, 2010)

I've been a dancer for 21 years, it's definately a part of seduction! We love to dance together, we still take lessons when we can.
Brenda Rupp 11:11pm March 5, 2010)

I really enjoyed your last two books, and am really looking forward to reading this one. Will there be more books in this series?
Kara Conrad 11:17pm March 5, 2010)

I look forward to reading this book. I love the wounded Hero types. Thanks for posting

Jane, the waltz was very much my
favorite. With a skillful partner, it really
does feel as if you could float right off
the floor.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 9:17am March 6, 2010)

Stacey, don't worry about it. I think
everyone has pushed send before they
meant to, at least once. SEALed with a
Ring is not your everyday SEAL book. I
hope you'll enjoy it.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 9:23am March 6, 2010)

I too was reared Baptist, but my parents
believed dancing was harmless, as did
most of the Baptists in my town. What we
didn't have was a ballroom instructor.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 9:32am March 6, 2010)

You know Mary, the student I admired
most was a woman who was terrible.
She knew it and she didn't care. It
didn't come easily to her but she didn't
care how long it would take to become
proficient. She wanted to dance.

I wouldn't do what she did, but by
golly, I had to admire her.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 9:42am March 6, 2010)

Thanks Maude. I'd rather tell a story than
write an essay any time.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 9:48am March 6, 2010)

Rosemary, I don't know about all caution,
but if fear of looking like a fool is keeping
you from your heart's desire, then yes!
Face that fear. Do what you love. Let
yourself look foolish, and do it anyway.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 9:54am March 6, 2010)

You know Alyson, I think if more men
understood how much confidence one
can gain from ballroom lessons, they
would be more interested.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 10:01am March 6, 2010)

Hey Pat and Kara, I'm so glad you
have enjoyed previous books. I am at
work on a forth SEALed book, even as
we speak.

Who knows how long the series will go
Mary Margret Daughtridge 10:06am March 6, 2010)

Brenda,how wonderful. While I enjoy
watching the "stars" dance, what I love
is the for-real competitions in which
you see people who have danced
together for years. The deep, physical
rapport they demonstrate makes my
heart sing.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 10:13am March 6, 2010)

Carol and Wanda, thanks for dropping by.
Good luck in the drawing, everyone.
Mary Margret Daughtridge 10:15am March 6, 2010)

This sounds like the best book yet. How many people have been seduced by the dance?
Carol Donnermeyer 12:10pm March 6, 2010)

I love the wounded hero type also. This book sounds wonderful.
Joanne Vitale 1:34pm March 6, 2010)

I enjoy marriage of convenience stories,
as they never turn out to be quite so
convenient when the heart gets involved.
Jung Ja Ahn 12:26pm March 8, 2010)

I have seen this book on may sites. all
I've read about it sounds good. It
sounds like the kind of book to pick
up when you need to escape into a
modern, alpha military hero romance.
Don't we all need one of those every
once in a while.
Patricia Barraclough 3:20am March 15, 2010)

this sounds interesting
