Touched by Midas, by Brenna Zinn, was voted a "Top Pic" from The Romance Reviews.  Here's what they had to say.

This may be the perfect read for any fans of fun, fast and erotic stories! Who can resist a cocky yet superstitious SEAL and the woman who could probably show him a thing or two?
Michael "Midas" Baudine's life is filled with rituals and rules. Wear the same knee pads and lucky socks for every mission. Eat the same breakfast, say the same words, and never, EVER get attached to a woman. SEALs can't train for luck, and they can't afford for fortune to turn on them because of love. And love is the last thing on his mind when he thinks of sexy schoolteacher Angie Summers. The woman makes a mockery of his Don Juan, playboy status, turning him into a caveman who MUST conquer her.
The daughter of a rock star and a supermodel, Angie has made it a point to keep her parentage and her own wild and crazy past hidden on the military base where she works. Too bad her dad is about to roll into town for a USO concert, the same concert Midas is begging her to attend with him. The young and innocent angel on one shoulder says to stay clear of this man who could make her forget her vow to be a good girl and live under the radar, but the much more wizened devil on the other side is whispering in her ear to go a little wild again since she's been soooo good for soooo long.
Agreeing to one date, Angie throws caution to the wind and finds that maybe Midas isn't the man she assumed, nor is Angie simply the mild-mannered schoolteacher he assumed. When they both lay their truths on the line, will either emerge unscathed? And just what does this mean for Midas' luck?
TOUCHED BY MIDAS was awesome! This offering in the SEALs Going Hot series features the delightfully arrogant and completely, crazily superstitious SEAL Midas, whose rituals bordered on the ridiculous but oh-so-funny. He prided himself on his studly status, and I thought that Angie's own man-eating sexpot past was the perfect match for his claims (I truly hope these two get some STD tests done, STAT!). Seriously, their first sex scene had me cracking up at the same time I had to turn the fan on to cool down.
The writing was perfectly balanced between fun and sexy, and the gorgeous Spanish setting was ideal. Midas and Angie's chemistry bordered on obscene in all the best ways. Truly, Angie was amazing--a reformed celebutante wild child trying to stay incognito but desperately yearning for a bit of hot and heavy fun in her mundane days. Everyone underestimating her and thinking she was some goody goody teacher was perfect and so much fun. Instead of taking tons of time to resolve the obligatory conflict between Angie and Midas, Ms. Zinn had the two of them actually talk to one another and work it out. BOOM...success.
While nothing in TOUCHED BY MIDAS was groundbreaking, jaw-dropping or even suspenseful, it really was just a super fabulous sexy read with character's you'll adore. I'm so ready to devour more books by Ms. Zinn ASAP!
What other reviewers are saying about Touched by Midas:
"I thoroughly enjoyed Touched by Midas; the very interesting characters, fun plot, and simmering sexuality made it one fantastic little novella!”  Slick, Guilty Pleasures
"Touched by Midas I have to say is now one of my favorite reads. All the components are there to tug at your heart for our military, for family and let’s not forget the hot scenes that you need a fan for."— Shey, Shey’s Book Cave
"I definitely recommend this to fans of military romance that enjoy a story that is both extremely sexy but still holds onto that sweet romance appeal." - Sheri, Love of Bookends
 Burning for Nero
by Cerise Deland
On leave due to an injury, Navy SEAL Tony Nero heads home for a little R&R and some Fourth of July fun. When his buddy’s widow Cass Phillips picks him up at the air station, Tony figures he’s in for a sexually frustrating few days. He’s had the hots for the blonde siren for years, but his best friend won her heart first. Even though Ray’s been gone more than a year, Tony bets Cass isn’t interested in any man. Not him. And especially not another SEAL.

Cass has a bone to pick with longtime friend, Tony. After her husband died, he was the closest thing her little boy had to a father figure. His visits stopped abruptly and her son doesn't understand why. Neither does she. She's also unable to quench her growing need for the tough and tender man. She's already loved and lost one SEAL, but that doesn't stop her from burning for Nero.
Ride the Mustang
by Desiree Holt
 Fletcher "Mustang" Call is a dedicated SEAL and a committed Dom. The one thing he isn't is relationship material. A tragedy in his past killed his desire for more than a good time on leave and a little D/s play. Until April Coe walked into his life, a woman unlike any he’s known. Problem is, she’s as vanilla as they come.

April was warned about Mustang, a man as wild and free as his call sign, so she doesn’t expect him to stick around for long. That’s okay, she'll enjoy the great sex while she can. At least, she thought it was great. When she senses her sexy bronco is holding back, she has to decide whether to ride the mustang a little harder or set him free.

Catching Eagle's Eye
by Samantha Cayto

SEAL sniper, Dane Sawyer, is known as Eagle Eye for his deadly aim. He’s also good at hiding his identity as a gay Dom. Childhood trauma has led him to live and play deep in the closet. Then a bullet to his thigh lands him on leave and in the incredible hands of a hot ensign assigned to get him back in the field.

Will Chadwick is happy to finally be living as an openly gay man in the Navy. And as a physical therapist, he’s used to coaxing bad asses like Dane into doing their PT. Harder for him is resisting the temptation that Dane presents. He’s a patient and hiding his sexuality. A prudent man would keep his distance.

But Dane doesn’t know how to quit, and seducing Will has become a mission. The budding sub in Will can’t resist the Dom’s commands. If he could only make Dane see that being a man doesn’t mean hiding his true self.
