The Navy SEAL's Promise - Soraya Lane (novella - 2012)

With only 48 hours back on home soil for Christmas, United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen is desperate to spend every minute with her young son. So when heavy snowfall closes JFK airport and she misses her connecting flight to Buffalo, she’s devastated. Until Navy SEAL Luke Gray offers to keep her company… and then personally escorts her home. 

Luke is back in the US on leave, waiting to hear the details of his next mission, and Saskia proves to be a pleasant distraction. And when he hears that she needs to get home to see her son, he’s prepared to do anything to help the sexy single mom. Trouble is, he hadn’t planned on falling for anyone, let alone a beautiful soldier about to return overseas. 

Fantastic story.  I connected with Saskia and Luke right away.  With only two days before she had to return overseas, Saskia is heartbroken when weather cancels her flight home to see her son.  Her seatmate on the previous flight, Luke is drawn to the sexy soldier and promises that he will get her home.  I could feel Saskia's love for her son and her desperation to make it home to see him.  There was also her connection with Luke, something that was totally unexpected for her.  She couldn't believe he would go to that much trouble for someone he didn't know.  Luke started out as seeing Saskia as a pleasant distraction from his bad memories of the season.  I loved the way he pulled out all the stops to get her home.  I also thought that the way they were able to relate to each other was very well done, thanks to the way they were both military and therefore had common experiences and outlooks.  Their trip from JFK to Buffalo was great, and the love scene was hot!  I also loved the way that her family immediately made him welcome - also a very military thing to do.  The conclusion to the story was oh so satisfying - I could picture it happening!
