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


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.

** Rescuing Rayne is the 1st book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

J: I really tried to like this story, but it is mostly just a boring love story. There really isn't much suspense at all. Even the rescue was quick and rather unremarkable. The characters were ok, and the dialog is just full of daily drama. There was way too many pages describing the "romance" in too much detail.

It's a very griping book. I was sucked right in and it was so hard to put down because I needed to know what happened next. Rayne is such a strong character. She goes through a very traumatic event, but with the determination to be as normal as possible after shows you the courage deep inside of her. Keane is one hunky hero and he feels instant connection with Rayne too bad he has to keep his true identity a secret. When fate brings them together once more will he grab this second chance or let her slip through his fingers once again? I enjoyed Keane's Delta Force teammates. They're a quirky bonded bunch. The biggest draw of the book for me was the connection you can feel between Rayne and Keane. They had a ton of chemistry, I can't wait for more from this series.

I love her books! Can't wait for the next one! She's one of my VERY FEW pre-order authors. Always a well written story with the right mix of a little action, suspense, and/or angst with lots of love, humor, sweet, and HEAT!

Susan Stoker starts off another amazing series with a super five-star read! The Delta Force Heroes series is about a team of uber secret Army special forces members and begins with Keane "Ghost" Bryson, the leader of this team. When he meets Rayne Jackson, flight attendant, and has the most amazing day and night with her, he can't forget that he's Delta Force and that doesn't mix with relationships. She knew he didn't do relationships and it was just a one night stand. Six months later they were only a memory to each other but neither could forget that fabulous day and night in London. I love Susan Stoker's writing style. She captures the Alpha man so well and the woman destined to be his is his match in every way. Ghost gives Rayne a lot of crap but she takes none of it. She's a strong woman with just the right amount of softness for a man like Ghost. The tattoos were a BRILLIANT addition to this awesome story! I can't wait to read the next one. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

Rescuing Rayne Susan Stoker An intense hot romance that brings together Alpha hero , Keane 'Ghost' Bryson and sweet flight attendant, Rayne Jackson, when their flight is cancelled in London. The one night stand has an affect on them that they can't shake. 6 months later has them meeting again in a not so great situation. This leads to a battle of wills and a soul searching. Can there be a HEA for Ghost and Rayne? This book kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next for them. Susan has written two strong characters who will pull you in and have you rooting for them.

What started out as a one-night stand in a foreign city turns into so much more. Keane (Ghost) Bryson is a Delta Team member and returning from a mission. Rayne Jackson is a flight attendant and they meet at Heathrow Airport while waiting for their flight to board. The flight is cancelled due to bad weather and they end up spending the day exploring London and the night exploring each other. Of course since he was returning from a mission he hadn't given her his "real" identity in when they met in London. It is unfortunate since Rayne seems meant for him including the tattoo on her back. While each of them knew going into it that this was a one-night stand, neither of them can stop thinking about the other one. When Ghost and his team are sent in to Egypt to rescue American's being held hostage, he is surprised to find Rayne among them. Rayne can't believe that Ghost is really there saving her. Can Ghost and Rayne overcome the "lie" about his identity and trust each other? With Ghost being a Delta Team member, he doesn't think it is fair to Rayne to get involved with her. The two have obstacles to deal with if they want to be together. Will they embrace the second chance they have been given? This is the first book in Susan Stoker's Delta Force Heroes series. I like that this is part of a series but does not contain a cliffhanger ending and am looking forward to reading more of these books. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

If you are looking for action, romance and an awesome story you have come to the right place. Susan Stoker has all this and more in Rescuing Rayne, the first book in her Delta Force Heroes series. We first met the hero, Ghost and his Delta Force team in the final book of Susan’s SEAL of Protection series, Protecting the Future. This first glimpse of the dedicated, tough super hero was a wonderful introduction to Ghost. Now we get to know him so much better and I fell in love with this tough guy with some human frailties where relationships were concerned but this weakness was superceded by his protective nature and determination. Ghost’s chance encounter with the heroine, Rayne was really fun to read and I was very touched by the scene where Ghost discovers the tattoo on Rayne’s back. This one-night-stand affected both Ghost and Rayne greatly. When they reunited under such horrific circumstances it really did seem to be fated as Ghost explains to Rayne’s brother and best friend. Great New Series! The author always writes really strong main characters. No wishy-washy heroine or a hero who can never make up his mind. The storyline flows really well in this book and the dialogue helps make all the characters come alive as you read the story. Susan Stoker never disappoints her readers and this is especially true in Rescuing Rayne. I highly recommend this book.

Wow, she has done it again!! Rescuing Rayne is the first book in the new Delta Force Heroes series by Susan Stoker and what a way to start! 5 amazing, pulse pounding, sexy action packed stars! I couldn't put it down, I read it one sitting! This book has it all, suspense, action, sexy, sweet, romance with the just a touch of angst to keep you on your toes. Ghost and Rayne have serious chemistry and a connection you can't ignore, the question is will they be able to survive the terrorists and admit their feelings for each other? One-click this new series and you will not be disappointed! This may be my favorite Susan Stoker book yet and I love them all!

O.M.G.! I LOVED this story! Ghost and Rayne are the perfect couple!! I was on the edge of my seat in parts and next I was laughing or reading with a HUGH smile on my face and then I wanted to strangle Ghost for being so much a guy! Uggg!! Every time I read a new story by Susan Stoker I keep thinking it can't get any better than the last story and she always proves me wrong!! I can't wait to read book #2 in the series!

What can I say, Ms Stoker started out her new series with a Bang! Rayne is pretty much a happy-go-lucky girl who tells it like it is and keeps her feet firmly on the ground. Ghost is a rough Alpha male who when he meets Rayne, even though it's only a one-night-stand, is protective of her. Through the book Rayne is put through some pretty harsh situations (as all the Stoker heroines are). I loved being able to watch how Ghost and Rayne work through things, other problems/issues that arise, and how they figure out if they are going to go on. It was awesome to get a peek of our SEALS and other familiar characters that are soon to have their own books/series! I can't wait to get to know the rest of Ghosts team and find out who the special women in their lives will be!

5 Stars!!! I was given this book in turn for an honest review. When Keane "Ghost" Bryson and Rayne Jackson’s flight is cancelled they decide to explore London together: memories are made that neither will ever forget. Can they truly walk away from each other? Will fate bring them together again? Or does fate have other plans? Rescuing Rayne is the first in the Delta Force series from Susan Stoker and I can already see this series is going to be epic, maybe even better than the SEAL of Protection series which pains me to say because I absolutely love that series! With true style their story starts romantically, sweet and with passion fuelled words; however Ghost and Rayne’s story has more than one unexpected twist. Susan takes us on a suspense filled ride with our heart fighting for them and our minds fighting to discover if they get their happy ending. I absolutely loved Ghost, he had a sense of humour, he was loyal, strong and a great leader to his team. There isn’t one moment in this book that you won’t either be laughing with him, sighing or wanting to hug him, even when he’s stubborn! Rayne was hilarious, she had witty comebacks and there was never a dull moment around her. She was strong, confident and outgoing. I would love her as my best friend. I think I may have already fallen for at least two other team members of the Delta Force Team and I haven’t even read their stories yet. These men are certainly giving other fictional men a run for their money! If you are a lover of military suspense fuelled romance, with added humour and a great bunch of characters you will absolutely love Rescuing Rayne.

Starting a new series can sometimes take a while to get into, but the way Susan finished her Protection series made me feel like I was getting to know more of the men we have grown to love. A wonderful transition to a new series without all the awkwardness of needing to learn everyone. Keane “Ghost” Bryson, is just what he sounds like, a ghost, he can slip in and out of a place and not be noticed unless he wants you to. He is a part of Delta Force and is one bada$$ soldier. But having a layover in London changes him more than he ever thought possible. Rayne Jackson, was a typical flight attendant on her way home for a couple days, but when the weather causes a delay and she is drawn to a guy, she spends the day seeing the sights and having one o the best days of her life. When the day is over knowing this will be no more than one day, without the expectations of more, was enough or was it? Will this day be enough? Susan is able to start this new series of with a bang, full of drama, suspense and romance it will keep the word moving and pages turning.

And a new series of Delta guys to get to know that kicks off with Ghost and Rayne. An encounter that changed both of their lives and results in memories that just won't go away. Then Rayne and other innocents fall prey to terrorists with Ghost and his crew along with other familiar faces called into to save the hostages. Hold onto your seats as you settle into a long evening of reading in this book. Received an author's copy
