He knew he had to forget her
But when the woman who stole his heart is kidnapped
This former SEAL will do whatever it takes to steal her back

Maddy Powers's life revolves around cocktail parties, political fundraisers, and charity events-but she can't forget the daring former SEAL who came crashing into her life a few months ago...or the scorching kiss they shared before he disappeared into the deep blue sea.

Bran Pallidino carries a dark secret-one that forced him to push Maddy away. But when she's taken hostage during a trip to the Caribbean, the men of Deep Six Salvage embark on a dangerous mission to save Maddy. Passion boils in the sultry sea breeze...but what good is putting their hearts on the line if they don't survive the dawn?

Devil and the Deep is an excellent follow up to Julie Ann Walker’s first Deep Six novel, Hell or High Water.  I was very excited to learn that this novel would feature Maddy and Bran because I love them both from the first book.  Bran made me laugh so much in the beginning because of his denial regarding his feelings for Maddy.  These two were sizzling in Hell or High Water and things get even hotter in Devil and the Deep.  Poor Maddy lands in trouble once again but thank goodness Bran is there to be her knight in shining cargo shorts.


Walker mixes high-octane suspense with beautiful romance in Devil and the Deep.

Leo Anderson and his SEAL team have retired off the Florida keys and are on the hunt for sunken treasure.  The men of Deep Six Salvage are battle worn and ready for some R&R but before they even get started a sexy sphinx walks back into their lives.  Leo can hardly believe it when the sizzling Olivia walks onto his island asking for help.  After all their last mission didn’t go exactly as planned.


CIA Agent Olivia Mortier has lost a weapon of mass destruction at the bottom of the sea and needs an expert team to get it back ASAP.  She turns to the only man she trusts to get the job done right, but will he help her?  Olivia has a bad feeling about this recent assignment and is determined to get the weapons back before they land in the hands of terrorists.  However, she never counted on being back in close quarters with Leo and the feelings that would be reawakened.  Will they conquer their feelings and the terrorists or let the weapon fall into enemy hands?


I am a huge fan of sunken treasure romances.  I was surprised and excited to see my cousin mentioned in Ms. Walker’s book.  After all I grew up listening to the family stories of Mel and the Atocha.  I like the premise of the Deep Six novels.  I mean who doesn’t like to think about a sexy pack of ex-SEALs shirtless diving for treasure? 🙂


Hell or High Water is a great title for this novel because these characters definitely go through hell on the open seas.  Ms. Walker definitely knows how to pack an intense amount of action into her romances.  Leo and Olivia are scorching! These two have so much sexual chemistry it’s insane! It’s unfortunate they are lacking for privacy as they are off to save the world.  However, this causes for some hilarious moments as they keep getting caught making out!


My only complaint is I could have done with less page time for the bad guys and more of Leo and friends.  I really enjoyed getting to know the men of Deep Six Salvage and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!


Hell or High Water is a passionate, thrilling race against time!
