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.
Ghost is a special type of guy, he isn't romantic in the more traditional sense of today. It's more like the old fashioned way, opening doors, walking on the kerb side of the pavement, holding a chair out for the lady to sit first. Some women wouldn't take notice or appreciate it, just taking it for granted but Rayne does. She sees and notices this and much more.
The way they meet, spend time together it's only a day. They pack a lot into it and then it's over, both go back to their normal everyday lives and jobs.
The undercurrent of emotions and thoughts, the spark of love runs through this story. I felt it and understood, I could see the things that meant so much to them both even though some of it happened before they even met. At some points I was shouting in my head ,no don't go there! don't do or say that! i'm not a reviewer that likes sharing parts of a book or a scene, I hate to read that myself, I share the passion, sadness, terror, fear and the love. There is a lot of all these in this ,there's also violence and abuse. It's military so you get missions, and guns. Explosions and hot guy's that you know you are going to love as each get their own stories.
There is one overwhelming (to me)thing in this book that really spoke to me, deeply in my heart and it stayed with me for a long time after I finished reading it. I cant say what it was because that would spoil it for others, esp if they read and really take it in like I did. They will see it and feel it too. Susan Stoker has done a fantastic job with this, the first story in her new series. To me it was one that reached deeply into my heart and stayed there long after I finished it. I cant wait for the next one, I love these Teams, because yes you do get a bit of the other team as well.
This is where we will post reviews, pimp books and authors, and announce releases and covers. Enjoy!
