She’s always got a plan, but being hijacked and finding love in the process wasn’t part of it.
As an event planner, Gillian Romano’s an expert at rolling with the punches and solving unexpected problems. But her flight getting hijacked while returning from a job is definitely out of her skill set. Passengers are being murdered, and when she’s chosen by the terrorists to be their mouthpiece, even more innocent lives rest on Gillian’s shoulders. Only the calm, reassuring voice on the other end of the line keeps her sane, forging a bond with a stranger she’s never seen but trusts with her life.
Walker “Trigger” Nelson and his Delta Force team have spent years training for close-quarter hostage rescue. When they get called to South America to attempt to save an airplane full of hostages, he doesn’t expect to meet a woman who rocks his world in the middle of the op. Gillian’s cool head and bravery in the face of certain terror—and possible death—blows him away. Any outcome that doesn’t include Gillian leaving that plane alive and well is not an option.
After their safe return to Texas, both Trigger and Gillian are excited to find out if their instant chemistry can survive the real world. Neither realizing that someone isn’t happy with the outcome of the hijacking, and is watching, waiting, for a second chance to strike.
** Shielding Gillian is the 1st book in the Delta Team Two Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
A great start to this new series! A suspense-filled story with great characters and great romance. Highly recommend
+200 pages for what?
I really regret buying this book. 1. After the first 80-100 pages the suspense is already over, 2. The ‘alpha male’ acted and thought more like a woman than what the author suggested throughout the book, 3. This whole book sets women back an age, the protagonist doesn’t stop belittling other women and hypocritical about everything she puts out (e.g. she is a strong independent woman, yet keeps having mention she wants to be the vulnerable and protected one)…. I got up to page 150 and I gave up. Not worth it. Not much of a story line. Not well written / thought out. Very mainstream. Very anticlimactic.
It was good-OK
It was an interesting story. There were bits that made you go “huh?” and some questionable relationship moments but overall it was better than some of other ‘Alpha Military Guy finds love’ stories.
