The Sleeper SEALs, are former U.S. Navy SEALs recruited by a new CIA counter-terror division to handle solo dark ops missions to combat terrorism on U.S. soil.


Dakota James’s life has become the stuff of nightmares. The leader of the Ansar al-Shari’a terrorist group has become obsessed with her, determined to take her as his wife. On the run, she’ll have to pin her hopes on the retired SEAL charged with finding and stopping Aziz Fourati before he can carry out plans to bomb more US airports.

Recently recruited to join a sleeper SEAL team tasked with fighting terrorism on US soil, Slade “Cutter” Cutsinger, with the help of some Special Forces friends, has located the one woman who can identify the deadly Ansar al-Shari’a leader. That was the easy part. Keeping her safe proves more difficult than anyone ever imagined.

When she and her new friend, Caroline, are kidnapped by the terrorist group, Dakota can only pray Cutter and the SEALs will reach them before they’re taken out of the country—and away from Cutter forever.  

** Protecting Dakota is a part of the SEAL of Protection Series. It is also in the “Sleeper SEAL” connected series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Each book in this multi-author branded series is a standalone novel, and the series does not have to be read in order.

    I love all of Susan Stockers stories. Her characters are strong and loving. And I love the fact this story was about an “olde” SEAL. I can’t wait for the next story in this series.

    This is a great read. 😊 It was great to be updated on the team and their families. However the book about Greg Lambert kinda left me like “what “ seems like you weren’t the writer. Oh well I guess you had a off day. Thanks for keeping me entertained 😍

    Susan Stoker's Protecting Dakota is the start of this new series and it was one fantastic start. This book was full of suspense with some ups and downs and it was a thrilling read with romance. Susan Stoker is a great author her writing just reeled you in and the characters had some great chemistry and were very intriguing. Slade "Cutter" Cutsinger is a recently retired Seal who is called back for an unsanctioned op. To protect Dakota James from terrorist, Dakota a school principal has survived a terrorist attack she is now on the run from the threat and is the only one who knows what the leader looks like. This is a must read it has a hot Seal and one tough principal. I highly recommend this book.

    One of the many reasons I enjoyed this story was, the hero & heroine are in their mid to late 40's. It was great reading about a HOT, retired Navy SEAL and a woman who is mature, vibrant and in need of protection. This story was exciting, steamy and full of suspense. My favorite kind of romance! Can't wait to read more of the Sleeper SEAL's series!!
