Lisa Carlisle:





A Navy SEAL on leave. A neuroscientist in danger.

And one dance that tangles their destiny.


A stranger has been warning me about my research for the government. My coworkers tell me not to worry, but it bothers me. I can’t let it show, though. This is my first time as a project lead. At least, a weekend wedding in Newport promises a much needed escape.

But when I come face to face with Angelo DeMarchis, who’s now a SEAL corpsman, that illusion shatters.

He’s the one who got away.

And he’s grown even sexier after all these years.

That’s when I realize I’m in even more trouble.

And once again, the price might be my heart.


I’ve needed this leave for a long time, but the memories haunt me no matter where I go.

Even at a wedding–a happy occasion–where I run into a woman from my past.

Catherine has become even hotter since high school. I wouldn’t mind spending every minute I’m home with her.

There’s only one problem.

Her research has gotten her into trouble.

She downplays the warnings, but I’m not buying it.

I have ten days to make sure she’s safe.

She’s mine and I won’t let anyone get to her.

This time I’m playing for keeps.

If you like second-chance romances spiced with steam and suspense, read the Anchor Me series by USA Today bestselling author Lisa Carlisle. Navy SEALs, Marines, and hometown heroes — each who encounters his most complicated mission yet when he will find a woman from his past challenges his plans for his future.

My Review…

A new to me author, Ms. Carlisle drew me into a great story with this first book in the new series Anchor Me.

This is the story of Angelo and Catherine.  High school sweethearts that were separated by time and distance.

Catherine is a brilliant neuroscientist, she is smart, clever and a bit naive to the ugly side of life.  She tries to believe the best in people and doesn’t want to become a nuisance or a burden to anyone.

Angelo, this Navy SEAL is everything that an alpha hero should be.  He is loyal and fierce and will do anything to protect the ones he cares about.

When Angelo and Catherine meet again, sparks fly and the chemistry between them is white-hot!

This was a fast-paced story with heat, some thrills, and a bit of humor.  It was lovely meeting the whole DeMarchis family in this first story and I can’t wait to see the other brothers’ stories in the future!
