I don't recognize the damaged woman in the mirror staring back at me-platinum-blond hair, blood-red lips and nails, curves laced up in the finest lingerie. I have transformed into a bombshell to exonerate my brother, United States Navy SEAL Joaquin Cruz. He's been languishing in a jail cell for the past six months, accused of a murder he didn't commit, his honorable career as a SEAL ruined, his spirit crushed. I've gone undercover as a stripper to entertain the men of SEAL Team Seven-I've given up my acting career, my dreams, my home-everything to free Joaquin and discover the truth. But I didn't count on having to conceal my identity from my ex-boyfriend, Navy SEAL Grant Carrion. The man I lost my virginity to was caught up in an endless web of sins and temptations, unable to escape from his demons. As I strip down to my lingerie and dance for Grant, I know that every humiliating moment will be worth my sacrifice-if only I can give my brother back his life. And just maybe, find a way back to Grant's heart. Conceit is a novella of 25,000 - the first of Se7en episodes in the Se7en Deadly SEALs series. Chronic: Se7en Deadly SEALs Episode Two releases February 7, 2015.
