Margie's Guest Review of ** RESCUING RAYNE by SUSAN STOKER **

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.

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I fell in love with this tough guy with some human frailties where relationships were concerned but this weakness was superceded by his protective nature and determination.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.

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.
