By day Luke is a seasoned military man who will do whatever is necessary to protect those who can’t protect themselves but there is another side to the man that is a book collector which is how he meets Gwen.

Gwen loves getting lost in books so there could not be a better career for her than that of a bookstore owner. When she meets Luke they connect over their love of books but it is when her parents are kidnapped that their worlds truly collide and they show what perfect partners they make both

4.5 Deltastic Stars🌟

This is another first for me and reading Lynne and I have to say I absolutely loved this story and all the King Arthur references🤩

Gwen runs her family bookstore and when a gorgeous tall and handsome man comes inside, they are both struck with awe😍 Suffice to say when Fate gives you what you want, it also has to make you work for it by throwing in a splash of danger to test out your backbone❣️A much recommended read by me and I’m looking forward to finding out who caught Duff’

This series is part of the Operation Alpha World, Delta Team Two series by Susan Stoker.

Gwen and Merlin are both bookworms but that in no way takes away from Merlin's sexiness and hotness. I want Merlin's library. Gwen's parents are in danger and Merlin's team is sent along to help save them. Her parents are a piece of work and I might have left them in danger.

Wow loved this the third book in the Delta Team 3 team series, as usual with Lynne St James you get all the feels, danger, passion, family, but most of all hope, I would definitely give this book 5 stars!

I received a free copy of the steamy Texas military based novel Gwen's Delta (Special Forces: Operation Alpha) (Delta Team Three Book 3)by Lynne St. James and this review was given freely.

Gwen's Delta by Lynne St. James is the third book in the Delta Team 3 series set in the amazing Special Forces: Operation Alpha world created by Susan Stoker. And I knew as soon as I read the blurb that I was going to adore Gwen and Merlin! )Having a soft spot for Arthurian myth may or may not have played a small factor in that. And I have no regrets for that obsession of mine and how it made me adore these two all the more!)

Gwen is sweet and charming and has an inner core of steel as she deals

I LOVED Gwen's Delta! This one holds a special little place in my heart because I love the classics, and I love that theses two meet and fall in love in a rare book store in Lancelot, TX of all places! I love military books and the more alpha the hero the better. But Merlin is such a gentleman, a complete dichotomy of what you would expect a big bad military dude to be. Of course there is the whole thing with her parents that I will NOT discuss since it will give too much away. But trust me, if ...more

Gwen, owner of a rare bookstore in Camelot, Tx, enjoys spending time with her “books”. She’s a shy, hardworking book nerd. She enjoys going on buying trips when her parents allow, but is truly at home with her books. Her meddling grandma believes otherwise.

Merlin, member of Delta Force team 3, has a much needed day off and wonders into the bookstore in search for his “unicorn”. Gwen can’t help but drool. Noticing this, her feisty grandma talks Merlin into asking her Gwen out for coffee. Gwen is

What happens when you kiss a stranger in a bookstore? Magic, of course. In this 3rd book in the Delta Team 3 Series, a shy bookstore owner meets Delta force operator, Luke, aka "Merlin". And when she gets a ransom demand for her parents who have been kidnapped while travelling in Egypt, guess what sexy soldier she turns to for help? But things are never what they seem. Our poor little bookworm (Gwen) becomes a central key in a terrorist plot that our hero Luke must help her survive. Meddling gra ...more

We are back with the members of Delta Team Three. Strong men with a heart of gold who are little by little finding independent and strong women to be their match. Women strong enough to have a relationship with a special forces warrior.
While books 1 and 2 were inter-connected, though could be considered independent of each other, this one is definitely a stand alone.

Who needs a knight in shining armour when you can have the wizard?

Gwen’s Delta (Delta Team Three) is up there as one of Lynne St James’s best.
I was hooked from the first page. I love the dynamic between the characters not just Guinevere, Gwen, and Luke aka Merlin; but their friends and family, even the odd ambivalent cat.

To describe this story as the bookworm and the Delta would be doing Merlin a disservice as he is both a bookworm and a Delta, it is his love of books that lands him in Gwen’s g

We met Gwen in Destiny's Delta, she runs a book store named Camelot in Lancelot, Texas for her grandparents. They keep insisting that she take more time off, go out, meet people but Gwen's perfectly happy with her life the way it is.

Her grandmother was with her in the shop when Luke 'Merlin' Forest comes in to browse their rare books. Grams is a bit of a matchmaker.

If Gwen thought her grandparents were bad they have nothing on Merlin's team. In fact Zip and Destiny show up at the restaurant wher

Just fantastic – writing, characters, story – all of it!
Can you get a better pairing that Merlin and Guinevere? That’s who we have here – Luke and Gwen are literally a match made in Camelot – and it’s set in Lancelot! Passionate Arthurian legends fanatic that I am, I confess to having started with this book just because of that, and I don’t regret it for a second. For those like me, I hasten to say that Gwen is so much stronger than Guinevere, that this Merin is a very sexy Delta, and that the e

How's this for a premise? A place called Camelot Rare Books in a town named Lancelot with a heroine named Guinevere whose father is Arthur the hero is Merlin. Modern day fairytale, right? Lynne St. James has packed a lot into Gwen's Delta and it's all good stuff: kidnapping plots, CIA operatives, radical terrorist groups with bombs and an instant attraction romance.

Luke "Merlin" Forest and Gwen Dedmond's love of books gives them a common bond. She's a self confessed book nerd that captures his

Dessert! Loved the connection to Camelot, Lancelot, Texas, Gwen, Merlin, Arthur, Sir Galahad. Totally a different side of Merlin comes out, who would have thunk a passion for old books? This book is a bit of a slow burn, both in intensity and action, even though it's over a short period of time. Explosive when it happens though. When you know, you know, especially when buying shoes that will bring your height up from your man's chest to his collarbone!

What happens when authors join forces and write their own story on one of the Alpha Delta man on one get five books, each with their own style and flair brining to life each character which HAVE to be read in order to gain the full experience of each member in the Delta team.
Next up is Luke aka Merlin who is the leader of the team and who is used to getting razzed as the oldest. He meets Gwen when he indulges in his hobby of collecting and reading books. Gwen helps out at her grandpa

A great read by Lynne St. James in the third Delta Team Three book, “Gwen’s Delta.” What I liked is how there is the whole romance aspect on love at first sight, believing in true love. Growing up Gwen heard the stories on how her grandparents and her parents first met knowing that this is the person they will marry. So she grew up hearing true love at first sight. At least she believed it until college after dating a few losers. At least until she met Luke “Merlin” Forest. The leader of Delta T ...more

I really enjoyed this tale of old bookstores stores, knights in shining armor (Delta Team3), maidens in trouble named Gwen, and a magical Delta named "Merlin". I loved the bookstore and the town of Lancelot. I could picture them in my mind as I read the story.

Gwen is more than a shy bookworm and when she gets a big shock near the end of the story, she doesn't cave under pressure. She is a trooper throughout the entire story. She has flaws like the fact that she can't cook which makes her a very

Gwen runs a rare bookstore along with her grandparents. Luke AKA Merlin calls in to the store while he’s on leave. Gwen’s grandparents awkwardly push them into a date. It’s here they find they’ve far more in common than they first think.
As their relationship progresses, truths about Gwen’s parent come to the surface and will these drive a wedge between the new couple.

Gwen’s Delta is the third story of the Delta Force Team 3 series, and probably my favorite one of the bunch. It’s the story of the leader of Delta Team 3, Luke ‘Merlin ‘ Forest, and bookstore owner Gwen Dedmond. I love it because it centers around two people and their love of books and all things geeky, and is a cute play on all things Camelot.

WOW! This story was FANTASTIC! This is about Merlin and Gwen. Merlin felt something for Gwen almost the second he saw her. Gwen thought she found her knight but he is more of a wizard. Merlin tried to keep Gwen in the dark as to what his team does but when her parents are "kidnapped", Merlin and the team have to take Gwen to Egypt to "rescue" her parents. Not did she get a shock twice, first she finds out that Merlin and his team are a ghost Delta team then she finds out her parents

Alpha but just enough to make you hot and gorgeous with a mind and consideration for others. Love his wizardly ways and how he got his nickname. Loved Gwen.
