3 "Fateful" Stars

Rayne is a flight attendant trying to pass time during a layover when she meets the mysterious Ghost. It's obvious that Ghost doesn't want to get too personal but there's something about him that makes her want to spend the one day they have together even if she's not a one night stand kind of girl. Ghost knows that he should stay away from Rayne. He's a top secret Delta commando and ties are dangerous. But when she agrees to his one night only and no attachments plan, he can't

3 - "What are the odds." Stars.

This is the first book I have read by Susan Stoker. Rescuing Rayne is also the first book in the authors new Delta Force Heroes, series, and while I found it in the main enjoyable, there was one point that I didn’t 100% feel needed to be played upon as much as it was.

Things were going really well up to around the halfway point. I knew when I started reading that the book partially would focus on the capture and then rescue of Rayne, that really wasn’t the problem,

4 ”One Night Only” Stars!!

Ghost and Rayne meet at London Airport when their flight is cancelled until the following day. Rayne is a Flight Attendant and Ghost is a Delta Force Soldier just returning from a mission. After striking up a conversation and having a mutual attraction they decide spend the day together…and the night.

Just one night, no strings and no regrets. Ghost is adamant that he is not a commitment type of guy especially with his secretive and dangerous job, he makes it abundant

Rescuing Rayne is the first book in Susan Stoker's new Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book will be a stand-alone and doesn't have to be read in order.

Keane "Ghost" Bryson is heading back to Texas after completing another mission with his team. He doesn't expect to meet the one woman that seems to be made for him during his layover in London. But when his flight home gets delayed until the next day, Ghost and Rayne spend the day exploring the city. Unfort

This was good. Stuff was blowing up, people being kidnapped, barely escaping with your life intact. It semi-fulfilled my action need.

There could have been more action, but I'm an action junkie so take that criticism with a grain of salt.
Also, there was a lull in the book when the MC's are separated, but it was gearing up for the good stuff!

Yet another DNF.

I've tried a couple of times with Susan Stoker, but her books are just not my jam. I don't know how to say it other than she writes very traditional heroes and heroines. The H is always a no-relationship kind of guy who swears he isn't a romantic, and that the women he has one-night stands with understand the score. The heroine has never had a one-night stand and wants to find true love. (Is there a MadLibs-style book out there that authors are using to write their books? Because

Oh my!! This story blasted it's way to the top of my favorites list and (gasp!) even knocked a previous Susan Stoker hero fav down! :)

From the beginning, you felt the anticipation and build up and connection between Rayne and Ghost. Even though their relationship began as a "one night stand" - Susan wrote it so that you definitely felt the "more" that they did, even if Ghost was just too stubborn for his own good the next morning. Shoot, I even felt abandoned the next morning! But how they stay
3.5 stars

I was torn over this rating. I enjoyed the story. It was pretty good, until the hero abandoned her with a lame note. In general, I like my heroes to have a set of balls, and I just do not enjoy when they do not. Now he definitely pulled it together after some serious "girl like" counseling from his badass Delta and Seal brothers (which was super weird). But he did not go after her. She was set in his path. So it is hard for me to feel the love, when I know that he should have never gone
Romance Between The Sheets
I actually read and loved Rescuing Emily (Book 2 of the Delta Force Heroes) first and it was great to see that story overlap with this one. Emily and Fletch were wonderful characters and I loved their story.

Ghost and Rayne’s story takes place over a long period of time, they first meet and then reconnect months later. The initial meeting I really enjoyed, there were no expectations, they had fun and enjoyed their moment in time. Their one night stand was passionate and when he leaves broke my he

I have tried to get through Susan's books in the past because I see these 5 star reviews. I thought "Maybe these are her first books, let me try something new"....

The writing is repatative, switches POV each paragraph, with lots of unnecessary words. And all of her characters are the same person with a new name. It just is missing....something.

Even the sex scenes the dialogue is weird, and there is too much filler. It just isn't well balanced.

I liked some of Susan Stoker's other books, but this one wasn't for me. The heroine wasn't exactly a doormat, but she wasn't far from one either. She let Ghost run over her as much as he liked! And don't get me started on all these stupid and needless(did I mention crude) sex scenes...

I only gave it 2 stars because I liked the begining. Unfortunately it couldn't hold this level through the end. The more I learned about Ghost the more I disliked him...

Great second chance story, I've read many second chance one and this one has been my favorite. I love that we saw them together at the beginning and they were great. When they both knew he would leave it was sad because she woke up calling his name but he wasn't there. Seeing them back together made me love him again because he did everything he had not to let her go.Great story
Susan Stoker= auto buy! I love these stories! I also love that the other series are intertwined. When I stumbled upon the SEAL series, I knew loved it. I didn't want it to end. Now that we get small glimpses or references to them I am a happy girl. you have a loyal fan in me!

I think we can agree that regardless of how much you love an author, that doesn't always mean you'll like everything they write, as not everything is for everyone and tastes do vary. However, Susan is one of those rare authors for me...I have loved every book she has written and this one is no exception. I love the fact that I know I'm reading a new book with each release. Yes, some of the characters will be reoccurring due to it being a series, but the character's personalities are never the sa ...more

I loved this story. A one night stand that is hard to forget and then fate puts them together again in the worst possible circumstance.

“The scars will fade, but, Rayne, the scars only show the world how tough you are.”

I can already tell that I will need to read this whole series! I think I have a new addiction and it’s called Delta Force Heroes!

An unexpected flight cancellation leads to a life-changing, romantic adventure in London that flight attendant, Rayne Jackson, never imagined possible. After less than 24 hours spent with a handsome, enigmatic stranger, whom she is sure must be a spy or a soldier, finds Rayne falling in love. Unfortunately, the wonderful man whose tender attentiveness has captured her mind and heart has warned her, up front, that all he can offer her is that one, unforgettable day.

If you are partial to books with action and testosterone this is your book. Keane is in the Delta Force a secret government group of men whose faces do not become attached to their missions. They risk their lives for their country but it can not be known. That is their bond. The men are a tight knit group that are as loyal to each other as they are to their country. Keane AKA Ghost is delayed at an airport when he meets Rayne. She is so different from anyone that he's ever known but he still kno ...more

With the charm of what happened in London how could you not root for Ghost and Rayne as a couple. I hated that Ghost left her there, hated that both of them felt lost and knew that trouble would be brewing and Ghost would come to the rescue.

It was great to see Ghost get the lecture from Wolf, someone who had been there, done that with a woman. Better was that he did it around all of Ghost's teammates and they agreed with him. Rayne took the truth of Ghost's life pretty good and started looking

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” –Joseph Campbell

Book 1 in the ‘Delta Force Heroes’ series. There are 9 books so far and each features a different member or hero of Delta Force. This was a free offer on Amazon and this is my honest review.

Rating MA: mature audience, explicit language, graphic sexual descriptions [soft porn], trigger warnings for violent physical acts, explicit descriptions of violent intentions… the enemy hadn’t raped her [yet]

Love Rayne and Ghost amazing loving emotional story.Cant wait for book 2
Rescuing Rayne is my first book by Susan Stoker and I really enjoyed it. It had just the right balance of sweet, sexy, suspense and angst throughout the story that kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next.

Rayne is sweet, spunky and somewhat of a realist with a romantic heart and a touch of naiveté. She loves the idea of love, but knows that fairytale endings don’t always come true. But though she is sweet, she has a spine of steel. Ghost surprised me. He is a soldier to the core a

Ever since I read a review of ‘Rescuing Rayne’ several months ago, I knew I wanted to read this book. It sounded like a good romance story and I especially loved that Big Ben on the front of the cover (I have a thing for London :D). So when I was looking for a new audiobook and saw ‘Rescuing Rayne’ I knew it had to be fate. As soon as I could I started listening.

I was given this book in turn for an honest review.

When Keane "Ghost" Bryson and Rayne Jackson’s flight is cancelled they decide to explore London together: memories are made that neither will ever forget. Can they truly walk away from each other? Will fate bring them together again? Or does fate have other plans?

Rescuing Rayne is the first in the Delta Force series from Susan Stoker and I can already see this series is going to be epic, maybe even better than the SEAL of Protection

The book was okay but not more than that. It tells the story of two people who met in London, spent one day together including sex and then separated and met again 6 months later in a rescue operation. The book is writing well, the chemistry between the hero and the heroine was great and it kept me interesting. There were a few things in the book that annoyed me:
1. The hero always thought that the way to protect the heroine is to keep her away from him. In the start it was legitimate thinking b

Ghost and Rayne what a pair and what an adventure they go on. A flight canceled brought these two together for a beautiful adventure to London for a day and a night of love and attention.
Ghost refusing to see what he had because of what he was, afraid of involving this woman who meant more to him that he would admit.
Rayne a romantic at heart gave it to Ghost without even being aware she did. After that night Ghost vanished as he told her he would.

“I can tell you think being a romantic is a bad thing, and while I freely admit to wanting to find a man to spend the rest of my life with, I do know the world isn’t always sunshine and roses. Most of the time it’s overcast skies and poison ivy. That’s why I read the books and watch the movies I do. If the only way I can experience romance is through my imagination and fairy-tale books and the weddings of English Royalty, I’m going to do it.” 1 likes
“Romance isn’t about the outer trappings society has pushed down our throats from the time we were little. It’s showing in all the little ways that you care about the person you’re with. That you’ll protect her if the shit hits the fan, that you’ll provide for her, that you’ll let her choose what she wants to do and where she wants to eat, even if it’s not what you would pick for yourself.” 1 likes
