REVIEWER:  Brenda Larnell | RATING: B+
REVIEW: Author Brenda Jackson has expanded her contemporary multicultural romance stories to include the fellow Navy Seal teammates of Bane Westmoreland, scion of the popular Westmoreland family. These stories are penned under The Westmoreland Legacy. AN HONORABLE SEDUCTION is the third book, and it tells the story of David “Flipper” Holloway. The novel is set in Key West, Florida that is very appropriate since Flipper’s specialty as a Seal is master swimmer.

The story begins with Flipper and his Seal Teammates, Bane, Viper, Coop and Mac, preparing to enjoy a leave of absence from the duties. However, Flipper is called into the office of the Admiral. Instead of traveling home to see his family, Flipper is assigned the task of going undercover to investigate possible espionage involving American citizens. The key suspect is none other than the heroine of this story, Swan Jamison, and the plot thickens. During his investigation, Flipper concludes that there are others responsible and involved.  As he falls in love with Swan, Flipper is determined to discover who the guilty parties are in the scheme against the U.S. government. To do this, he gets a little help from his Seal friends.

The romance between Flipper and Swan is sweet, sensual, and at times steamy in true Brenda Jackson style. She definitely produces some of the best love scenes of this genre. Bad guys abound, and they indeed provide a modicum of intrigue to the story. While there are a couple of plot twists, the storyline follows a predictable pattern: Boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, conflict reaches a peak, conflict gets resolved, boy gets girl, and all is well.

AN HONORABLE SEDUCTION is an easy, enjoyable read. Even though it is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone. I recommend it for your reading pleasure. If you want to catch up with the other Westmoreland Legacy heroes and their stories, they are THE RANCHER RETURNS, and HIS SECRET SON.
