Where to start out with my review...Susan Stoker captivated us with Rescuing Rayne, her DFH Book 1. We all loved the love story between Ghost and his high flyer. Like many of you, I'm sure, I was sad to see the end of the DFH last month with another SS book. But then we were hit with a surprise. Riley Edwards had written a book about Ghost & Rayne. She was sending them on their honeymoon. Now although I was excited to read about characters that I loved, I'll admit I was a little trepidatious in ...more

For me, this was a huge disappointment. Rescuing Rayne was my all-time favorite Susan Stoker Book and I have read it numerous times. I was so excited to read this but it has discolored my memories of Rescuing Rayne.

It was DNF for me.

Very poor book.

This story was poorly written in a fairytale manner. It is frivolous and dumb. A real injustice to Susan Stokers work.

Ghost and Ryan’s

What a delightful story about 2 of my favorite characters in Susan Stokers Delta Force series. Riley Edwards portrayals of Ghost and Rayne’s were spot on and I loved it!

This book caused me to lose so much respect for Rayne. She was such a strong, independent woman in Susan Stoker's book and was reduced to a helpless damsel in distress who couldn't make a single good decision to save her own life. Very sad to see how dependent upon Ghost she had become. ...more

Romancing Rayne: Special Forces Operation Alpha Fan-Fiction is by Riley Edwards. This is a specific type of book where the author takes another author’s characters and write a book using them. It is legal because they are using Aces Press to publish their work. Susan Stoker helped Riley in the brainstorming process but had nothing to do with the writing of the book. It is the ultimate form of praise for Susan Stoker to have her characters copied in such a fashion. Riley Edwards did a fantastic j ...more

What a story, it was so neat to see Ghost and Rayne again, not only that but to see their honeymoon, and to go back to London where their story began, to see them recreate their first meeting and how it all came to be.
And the extras oh lord Riley Edwards sure has more imagination then I do, the characters written into the story were awesome, begining with Oliver, and seeing Rayne as happy as she was to see Big Ben heck I do not blame her I would be too, and then Spike and his wife, that was a ki

Wow! Amazing!
I have not read many fan fiction books. The few I have read in the past just didn't do it for me because I could tell they just were not the original author and it just bothered me. Now this book.... just WOW! I grabbed it because I needed a book to read and I was out and I have read Riley Edwards stories before and enjoyed them. I love the characters Ghost and Rayne so why not?! Well best decision ever! It is just perfect! Riley Edwards did an incredible job with the details comin

Wow a fantastic read.

Wow what can I say. If you love Susan Stoker's alpha world and fan fiction and you love Ghost and Rayne, then you are going to want to read this. This book is all about their honeymoon after they got married at the end of rescuing Mary's book. We see the love that Ghost has for Rayne, she has a big suprise for him and like most books she disappears. It's up to Ghost, Tex and close buddy prince Harry of all people to help find the love of his life. Can Ghost find the love of

Finally we have a conclusion to Ghost and Rayne's fairy tale story complete with two surprise characters will give this book everything it needs to make it a special one.

Rayne and Keene (Ghost) finally are married and are heading to London where they first met but first Ghost has a surprise for Rayne for their honeymoon. There will be tours of towers and castles, a lost child that Ghost will help reunite with his parents but it also will lead to a equally lost Rayne. But I won't spoil the book

A story of romance; marriage and a honeymoon in London. These are the adventures of the newly married couple; their sightseeing trips and her introduction to some of the Royal Family members. Lastly Rayne gets lost without her phone; gets dumped a cab driver and losing her purse and identification. Her husband being part of a Special Forces unit gets some of his friends to help find her.

Susan Stoker is one of my favourite authors, so when I saw that there would be another book of more Rayne and Ghost I was like heck ya! I haven’t read anything by Riley Edwards and didn’t even care that it wasn’t Susan writing it. And I just gotta say I was pleasantly surprised with this author and similarities in writing style and keeping true to the characters. Kudos to Miss Edwards in joining in on this awesome series. I am now intrigued to start reading some of your series books!

A Very Enjoyable Read

This was a fun read. It was just what I needed to get over a massive book hangover. It was a fun romp through London for Rayne and Ghost on their honeymoon. Ghost treated her to sites and people not normally seen by tourists. Of course Rayne has to get into some kind of trouble that sends Ghost on the hunt. I read to escape and that’s what I did with this book.

Romancing Rayne

WOW! This was a different perspective yet familiar story of Ghost and Rayne after their wedding. I loved how Ghost made everything special for Rayne. The drama happened when the two got separated from each other. I love how Prince Harry and Meghan were incorporated into this story. I am happy that these two got to go back to where their relationship started. Ghost gave Rayne her fairytale honeymoon. FANTASTIC job Riley! I would recommend this book.

i was not sure that I would like this book as I loved Susan Stokers book where they met and then the rest of the DFH series... even though I am a fan of Riley Edwards I was not sure how her version of who Ghost and Rayne were would meet with Susans version or how I viewed the characters. I must say not only was I happy with the story line (fairy tale ending in a way) but so glad I read it ... well done Riley

Riley Edwards picks up Susan Stoker's story of Keane “Ghost” Bryson and Rayne Jackson after their wedding and going on their honeymoon.

Ghost decides to make all of Rayne's dreams come true by taking her back to the place where they met and fell in love - London. He takes her on a holiday that she will never forget along with a "royal" surprise. Everything seems perfect until disaster strikes. Ghost will call some longtime friends to help keep Rayne safe.

OMG what a honeymoon

One help of a honeymoon. Being able to see all those things from getting private tours of the palace to being up spending the day with Prince Harry and Meghan because Ghost had served with the Harry overseas at one time. And then Rayne makes a couple had decisions and ends up lost only to be found by Meghan while Ghost is about to head the city apart looking for her. How could it be and better?

Loved This Book

I was a bit worried about another author writing about Rayne and Ghost but this book was in keeping with the characters developed by Susan Stoker. While the scenario was semi-fiction, Ghost was still his strong, alpha Delta Force character and Rayne his now devoted but independent wife. My 2 favorite characters. A little suspense and lots of steam!

A Must Read for Fans of Susan Stoker's Delta Force Heroes Series

The story begins at the end of the quadruple wedding in Susan Stoker's Rescuing Mary and follows Rayne and Ghost on their honeymoon to London, the city where they first met. Lots of sizzling romance and a couple of royal surprises (I knew that Prince was a bada$$!).

Fairy Tale

This was a sweet, fantastical fan fiction honeymoon tale for Raine and Ghost. The newlyweds head to London to celebrate their marriage and baby-to-be in the place where it all began. Ghost has planned a truly memorable and most romantic trip for Rayne, with quite a few surprises along the way!

This was just as good as Rescuing Mary by Susan Stoker. Unbelievably good. You did Ghost and his Princess proud. Love the added surprise of Spike. Please keep writing Susan Stoker's World.

Wow! This was excellently written and in true form. Everything is in it romance, action, old as well as some new friends and special guests. There is sexual content so please readers of 18 and older. This reads quickly. I loved it!!

This covers Ghost and Rayne's honeymoon trip back to where their story begins, London. Very little in the way of danger, more as to bad choices on both of them. But it all worked out with some fantasy about the current royal couple.

This was awesome!

I really enjoyed reading this extension of the series I loved. One thing I hate about getting to the end of a series is missing the characters I loved. loved reliving Rayne and Ghost’s love story. I truly enjoyed it.

I thought this one was fun to read, loved the adventures they had on the honeymoon, loved more how Ghost was planning 25 years in the future for them. But as much as I liked it, I found it totally unbelievable the couple that helped Ghost and Rayne.
