Overview

Rachel Gibson has already won two Romance Writers of America’s RITA® Awards—the most prestigious honor the romance community bestows—for her “edgy, sexy, fast-paced romance” (Jayne Ann Krentz), and Rescue Me is yet another high point in her acclaimed career.  The New York Times bestselling author of the popular Seattle Chinooks stories, Gibson kicks off a timely and wonderful new contemporary series about the romantic entanglements of military men back from active duty. Rescue Me is the story of the reluctant Texas homecoming of a former small-town beauty pageant participant and the sexy ex-Navy SEAL who’s on hand to complicate her life. It’s salvation from the bland and ordinary and Rachel Gibson at her best—a perfect escape for dedicated readers of Jennifer Crusie, Nora Roberts, and Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Gibson (Any Man of Mine) pairs up two damaged souls desperately in need of rescue in this distant and dark contemporary. Sadie Jo Hollowell reluctantly goes home to dusty cowtown Lovett, Tex., after a 15-year absence. Intending to be in and out for a family wedding, Sadie is surprised to fall hard for Navy SEAL Vince Haven, a sexy, silent man with a broken-down truck. Vince is fleeing his Afghanistan-related PTSD demons; searching for roots, he decides to take over his aunt’s convenience store/gas station in Lovett. Meeting Sadie and discovering their sexual fireworks momentarily soothes his restless soul. The emotionally closed duo fight their deeper feelings even as their bodies steam up the pages, leaving them surprisingly closed off to readers. The first five chapters of backstory and scene-setting fail to enliven the plot, which doesn’t begin to entice until present-day action takes over. Agent: Claudia Cross, Sterling Lord Literistic.

Booklist
“Gibson’s straightforward story of “the one,” and the one that got away, is wrapped in sexual tension so hot your palms will sweat.”
USA Today
“The NHL ought to pay writer Rachel Gibson big bucks.”
