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.
Another great story to launch another suspense romance series by this author. This is my second reading of this book and if anything it’s more engaging than the first time I read it. Still a full five star review for this book and author.
What a read!
I could say a lot of amazing things about this book (and all the books published by Susan stoker) but suffice to say, this book and the characters and emotions involved, as well as the romance and suspense has without a doubt Captured my heart from beginning to end!
There are very fewer authors who I can buy books from without really debating if I should commit and actually buy the book;but Susan stoker has made my very shirt list!
