Faithful and loyal Gloria Lockwood is facing an empty nest and loneliness for the first time in ages.  After her sister's tragic death, she opened her heart and her home to her two nephews, guiding them and loving them as her sister would have wanted.  But now, with the boys grown and out on their own, Gloria must start over and begin building a life of her own. When she encounters the handsome and rugged cop, Alejandro Rojas, she realizes just how much she's missed out over the past years.

Alejandro lives his life on his own -- keeping his heart to himself.  His job serving and protecting keeps him busy and focused on the safety and well-being of others.  However, when he meets the loving and giving Gloria, he sees a new future for himself -- one he never saw before.

But when a long-time prisoner with a vendetta against Alejandro escapes, both of their lives are on the line. Alejandro feels responsible for leading his suspect straight to Gloria. Now, Gloria's faith must be strong enough for them both.  Can Gloria help Alejandro see that God is their only hope against the evil they're battling?

About the Author

Award-winning author Laurie Larsen leads a double life.  During the day she's a respected Project Manager in the fast-paced world of Information Technology.  After dinner and a glass of wine, she becomes a multi-published author of Christian fiction grounded in today's modern world.

Laurie's been published for 17 years, but feels she finally found her writing "niche" in 2009 when her first inspirational romance, Preacher Man was published.  It won fans, accolades, and the prestigious EPIC Award for the Best Spiritual Romance of 2010.  From then on, her path was clear.  She was put on this earth (in part) to tell love stories combined with a strong message of faith.  Her Pawleys Island Paradise series is a much beloved, at times best-selling series of six books following Leslie and Hank, and the Harrison clan, as they face the daily challenges of life while trying to include prayer and praise.  Reviewers say the books are heartwarming, life-changing and an example to follow for including God in your life.

Laurie loves the beach (obvious to anyone who's read the Pawleys Island Paradise series) and she's fondly looking forward to a day (not too far away) where she can retire from the demanding day job, and spend her days living at the beach and writing novels.  Until then, she travels back and forth between Illinois and South Carolina just as often as possible.

Seized is an edge of your seat, suspenseful romance. I was captivated by Gloria and Alejandro. This book stand alone, but it was better because I have read the others. Blake and Haley are an important part of this story. Gloria is suffering a bit with empty nest syndrome. Alejandro has realized that maybe there is more to life than just being a cop. This is a sweet, clean, heart warming romance complicated by a vindictive criminal who wants revenge. I could not put the book down.

Loving this new book in the Murrell’s Inlet Series! The characters in this book Gloria and Alejandro were interesting because their story was so down to earth! We all love attraction, faith, mystery, and intrigue in Laurie’s books! Plus a bonus of catching up with other people from previous books is always nice since they feel like family! Read this book, you’ll find it hard to put down!

Gloria is adjusting to being alone. Her nephews have left the nest. Gloria is considering dating. She's an independent woman who is busy with her daycare and taking care of her home, but she'd like someone to share her life with. I liked that. When she meets Alejandro Rojas, she's drawn to him. He's a dedicated police officer as well as a kind man. She hopes that their relationship might grow, but there is a problem. He doesn't have a relationship with God. As Gloria struggles with this, Alejandro projects her from a dangerous criminal. Can he save her? Seeing them together made me happy. They complete each other. I really wanted them to find the path to happiness. I loved the setting. Murrells Inlet is beautiful and peaceful. A perfect background to their daily stress. Laurie Larsen wrote a romantic and touching story. I hope to visit this beautiful location again. I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read and reviewed. My comments are my honest opinion.

Gloria deserved her own happiness after changing her life to raise her nephews when their parents died in a house fire. There is an immediate attraction when she and Alejandro meet in one of his niece’s cooking classes. Bachelor Alejandro was a sexy CSI police officer, but he didn’t share Gloria’s faith. Plus he was focused on catching an escaped convict from one of his previous cases as a detective; a criminal who wants revenge and to make it personal. There was plenty of suspense in this Christian novel. It was great to catch up with Blake and Haley and follow up on their happily ever after.

Wow! Be prepared to be pulled into this story. The well-developed main characters, Gloria and Alejandro, are likable and easy to relate to. I loved the close relationship that Gloria had with her best friend. The fast-moving plot has twists and turns that I didn't see coming. The dialogue flows naturally. I did have some minor theological differences with the characters, however, the way that Gloria lived out her faith is encouraging and makes me want to show that same kind of sacrificial love. There is a fantastic HEA. I hope to read more of Laurie Larsen's work and highly recommend Seized. I received an ARC. I chose to write a review and share my opinion of this outstanding book.
