Macie has just found Truck recently and after being estranged for so long is back in his life. She spent with Colonel Colton Robinson as Truck and Mary's wedding and they seemed to share a mutual attraction and even spent the night together. Things go mixed up and Colt hasn't seen her in a month but as soon as Truck received the call, Colt bolted after him to co ...more

This story was go go go, right from the start. Mercedes has had to climb out of her bedroom window, jump into a tree, climb down said tree, hide in a parking lot and then eventually a bush, all to escape some strangers who have broken into her apartment. They want something from her, something she doesn't know she has. Luckily her brother is part of an elite military group and he and his commander rescue her from her tight spot. She and Colt shared a connection, but his indecision and her anxiet ...more

I actually haven't read the other Delta Force novels, but I didn't have a problem reading this one without starting the previous stories first. Past, and even some future, characters were involved in the book though and it has me dying to get their stories so I'm really glad I picked this one up. I enjoyed getting to know these characters and seeing how understanding and protective Colt was with Macie and it's what made the book for me. I always enjoy this authors

I loved this Novella and it is tied for first place in this series along with Rescuing Rayne.

This story is about Mercedes (Macie) Laughlin, 33, Truck's sister, and the Commander Col. Colton Robinson, 43.

Macie lived with chronic anxiety which was due to her horrific childhood and the awful things her parents did to her emotionally and mentally! She met the Colonel at Truck's and Mary's wedding and she had a horrific anxiety attack for which she was being treated. There was little hope that she w

Great story

This was a great depiction of anxiety disorder. I do think it doesn’t get enough attention. Macie and Colt were so good together. Colt was so loving and supportive. It was not an easy journey to their HEA, but they did it!
3.5 stars

Reading this story reminded me why Susan Stokes was once an auto but author for me. I have loved a lot of her books in the past and wish I could have continued some of the series.

Colton was a good hero, kind and patient with the heroine. As a military leader I had hoped he would have been more alpha and went after Macie when she left. He could have easily manned up and asked her brother for her number. He did redeem himself somewhat when he was there for her when she needed him most.

FANTASTIC story! Quick, action-packed, sweet & steamy, full of banter & alpha-y goodness! I appreciated the way Macie's anxiety is portrayed, and the way Colt reads her signs correctly. He puts in the work, does the research necessary to be sure he understands (as much as he can) where she's coming from so that he can make life as smooth as possible for her - while not taking anything away from her independence or self, if that makes sense!

I loved the dynamic of the story, the relationships tha

Stoker is one of my favorite ‘go to’ authors and I am always on the lookout for her next book. I love to escape into the fabulous worlds she creates for her readers with her stories. Some might say they are the typical cliché novels with the hunky, alpha men, women that always need rescuing and a romantic twist thrown in and you know what?... Those people would be correct – HOWEVER, they are also SO MUCH MORE. When you dive into one of her books, Stoker always incorporates ‘real life’ issues and ...more

Help yeah!

I loved every page of this story and am so looking forward to the next one.
I am in love with this author's writing, she has been my favorite author for a while and this one had just added to my addiction.

***5 Stars***

Ever since I picked up the first book in this series (which was also my very first read by the author) I’ve crossed my toes that Colt would get his own HEA at some point because the man seriously deserved it. So, I was all kinds of excited when it was made known that he’d be getting one and was not disappointed! It may be a novella, but it definitely packed a punch and has all the goodness I’ve come to love when it comes the author words!

I absolutely adored this novella! I have not checked out the other books in the series, but you bet I will be doing so! I always have mixed feelings about novella's because trying to find the perfect balance of moving swiftly but not too fast through a book is really hard to do--- but not with Susan Stoker!

Macie has been through the ringer in her life. She suffers from intense anxiety and this has always affected her relationships and her life. I cannot even begin to imagine how frustrating that

All the feels….

If I want a read with love, friendship and a good shot of danger and suspense, I know to pick up a Susan Stoker novel. Once again, I got just what I wanted with Macie and Colt’s story!

Macie was an intriguing character. Strong and capable in so many ways but uncertain in others. On the fringes of the Delta Force group, she worried about everything, wanting to fit in with her brother and his chosen family. Colt recognized those strengths as he fell for her, everything about her. Mee

I absolutely loved this book. I couldn't put it down.

There were MANY aspects that I liked about this book, but what I enjoyed the most was how much Mrs. Stoker was able to get into the mind of someone dealing with crippling anxiety. You felt Macie's fear and understood why she did what she did.

Colt was known as being a hard and firm man. However when he was dealing with Macie, he just seemed to know what to say or how to touch her to help her calm down. I really liked just how much he got her. F

Another great book

As usual another great story. This time we meet Trucks sister Macie. We saw her at Trucks wedding where she was having a panic attack and the commander (Colt) soothed her through it. Macie hears something in her apartment and then she hears voices. Realising their are people there, she starts to feel the start of a panic attack. She manages to escape but they are on her trail.

Such a fun look at our beloved Delta Team by Susan Stroker. I've read a few of the Delta Team books, and many of her other books. This quick read can be read as a standalone, with the reader being filled in neatly by the author on the most relevant back story. Of course, it does make a more complete and enjoyable world if you've read the whole series, but I haven't read the series in order or completion and still.enjoyed and followed this book easily.

Rescuing Macie: A Delta Force Heroes Novella is by Susan Stoker. This novella is wonderful and is hard to put down. Luckily, it is short so it didn’t take long to read. It is fast paced and full of adventure. It fits right in with the rest of Susan Stoker’s Delta Force books.
Mercedes Laughlin had a very hard childhood which left her with a great deal of anxiety. She worried all the time about things that most people would never worry about. She had chosen her apartment with care and made sure t
Kay Daniels (Kay Daniels Romance)
I love the 1001 Dark Night novellas because they are typically a quick read. Most of the books I've read under this umbrella are stories that the author wants to tell, but the characters are either in an ongoing series and don't quite have enough meat to make up a full novel, or it's a great way for the author to introduce a new character that has a chance in a new series without having to begin a full novel all on their own.

Rescuing Macie is the perfect example of both options above. Macie and

Rescuing Macie by Susan Stoker is impossible to resist. It has the most gorgeous, delicious, uber protective, confident special force guy as hero. It has the sweetest, kindest, most amazing woman as heroine. It has drama, passion, tension, love and everything with Susan Stoker's glorious writing. HOW CAN I NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH THE STORY?

Full of suspense, intensity, vulnerability, love and comfort...this military romance has it all! Susan Stoker never ceases to amaze me as she writes heroines that are dealing with challenges in one way or another, yet so fiercely strong and admirable. Me. Stoker has absolutely nailed the feelings associated with anxiety and the attacks they can cause with a clarity like none I have ever read before.

Oh my gosh! Reading Macie's story and her daily struggle with anxiety felt so close to home! I could feel her struggles through the page!

5 Star Review of Rescuing Macie (Delta Force Heroes # 9.5) by Susan Stoker
I have read a couple of the books in the Delta Force Heroes series and as with those books I found Rescuing Macie to be well written and captivating. Ms.Stoker grabbed my attention form the first chapter till the last. Although not a particularly long read, you will find yourself drawn in to the story that she weaves.
The attraction and chemistry between Macie and Colt is almost off the charts as Macie struggles with anxiet

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

Susan Stoker hit it out of the park with Rescuing Macie! Susan Stoker did a FANTASTIC job with Macie and what it was like for her with anxiety. As someone who personally deals with anxiety, I felt a instant connection with Macie. She felt real to me and her symptoms of anxiety felt realistic and how she deals with it felt just as real. It was incredible and refreshing.

The story was engaging and original and very special to me. I loved Colt and his sweet and pro

I just had my Susan Stoker cherry popped, and I can’t believe I waited this long to read her. I loved everything about this book and I want to read more! She just moved to the top of my “I have to read it now” reading list. I really felt for Macie and her anxiety situation not to mention how her parents treated her. Then there is Colt, the commander of 2 of the Delta Forces, he is not put off by Macie and her quirky issues. When an ex-boyfriend threatens Macie and her safety it drives a Colt to ...more

This books was a quick audiobook. The story started strong right from the beginning which i liked a lot, no fluff just straight to the action. Macie is a character I can relate to with her anxiety and fears affecting her every day life. When her house gets invaded, its her brother and his friends who come to her rescue.
Colt, her brothers commander, has always had his eyes on her. He becomes the protective guy hes been trained to be. But when his feelings come to the surface, will Macie and him

I have loved all of the Delta Force Heroes books (and firmly believe Annie is the most awesome kid EVER).

Macie and Colt make for a fantastic couple. She tries so hard to battle and overcome her condition and he is so calm and understanding and supportive. This story is a little shorter that most of the Delta stories but it brings together the old team and the new team as they assist their commander in protecting Macie.

Get this whole series and be prepared for some truly epic moments and awesome

Susan Stoker did an amazing job with this story!!!
This novella size book did NOT seem like a novella, but an actual full length book. Like all of this authors stories, it is action packed and is a total page turner. This makes it end way to quickly.
The narrator, Stella Bloom did a great job on this story, like she usually does.

This is Macie and Colts book.
Colt is the Delta Force commander. We get to see both teams, although we see the newer team more than the older one. Mainly, because Truck wo
