As a flight attendant, Rayne Jackson is used to cancellations, but she never dreamed her latest would lead to a whirlwind tour of London with a handsome stranger…or a life-altering night in his bed. One evening is all the enigmatic man can give her, and Rayne greedily takes it, despite suspecting it will never be enough.
Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane “Ghost” Bryson hadn’t planned to seduce someone during his layover, but Rayne is too sweet to resist. Being a Delta Force member means lying to protect his identity, which is unfortunate, considering Rayne seems made for Ghost, right down to the tattoo on her back. For the first time in his life, regret fills him as he slips away the following morning.
Both are shocked when, months later, they meet again-under the worst possible circumstances. Seems fate has given them a second chance…if they can survive the terrorist situation they’re in. If Rayne can forgive Ghost his lies. And if Ghost can trust Rayne to be strong enough to endure the secrets and uncertainty that come with loving a Delta Force soldier.
Romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres to read (and watch) because I love all of the action and thrilling escapes. I have never read anything by Susan Stoker, but I am definitely a fan after reading Rescuing Rayne.
I really loved the way that Stoker wrote this book because we got to see where Rayne and Ghost began. There wasn’t some short dinky chapter on their initial meeting and then chapter one opens six months later. You get a solid 100 pages reading about how they met and the impact it had on both of them moving forward. I loved the way these two connected right off the bat. It was like they knew each other for years instead of hours. They made such a connection that they were both marked from the experience for life.
Rayne is a feisty, no holds barred, temperamental heroine who does not go down without a fight. She is exactly who someone like Ghost needs in his life with the job he does. I really liked Rayne’s character because she is loyal to the core and will stand by the people she loves.
Ghost is one stubborn ass man who looks sexy as hell in his uniform. Ghost was determined to keep Rayne out of his dangerous life, but he can’t ignore her when God puts her in his path twice, especially the traumatic way he finds her the second time. I absolutely adored the little ways that Ghost loves Rayne. He is not flashy with flowers and chocolate, but he makes sure she is warm enough and walks on side next to the street in order to protect her from wayward cars. Ghost is the perfect, overbearing, protective military alpha male.
I am so freaking excited to see the rest of the team get their own books because I loved each and every one of them in their own ways.
