Publisher's Summary

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 first book in the Delta Team Two series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

hmmmmm

I normally sink into Susan stoker.....but this one is opposite to most of her others, her plots are 80% military action, angst and suspense and 20% is romance.
but this is 20% action etc and 80% romance.!!
it was very slow and I struggled with the simplicity of an alpha dating a mixture of a woman...smart but naive????? I'm a sassy kinda heroine listener.
I loved her 1st delta team series, mountain mercenaries series along with her Texas ranger series, she brings out what the average person presumes to be a problem in an individual and turns it into a strength that pulls the pace and plot together nicely.
this book however, lacks the punch I normally get from Ms Stoker in the middle and might I say, the end....the opening was awesome.
if you don't mind slowing down your story pace and enjoy a rolling into romance slowly but surely then away you go.
I do think that the alpha males respect thing was a bit overstretched but Ms Stoker made this steam scene one if the best I've read....😉😉

Trigger's Gillian

WOW what a great start to this series. Two very different people come together to form a strong team. Head clashes, finding boundaries as they move forward from high stress events. watching them become a strong couple. Love this story.

For a 12 year old

The terrorist plane part is laughable if I wasn’t so disappointed. The narrator was fine. The script is not her fault. Literally , for a 12 year old.

Corny, over done

Everything in this book was extremely corny from the phrases repeated over and over to the stupid stuff the main characters said to each other. It was very cliche. I love Stoker’s other books and series so I’m hoping this was just a one off and the rest of this new series is better.

Another great series but...

I really liked this book, it’s a great progression of the delta force stories. However, can we please have Stella Bloom back? She is much better at individualizing the voices between characters.

Great story & Narration

I loved this book by Susan Stoker and Virginia Rose did a great job narrating and brought the story to life. I really enjoyed her performance and how she portrayed all the characters. I devoured this book all in one sitting and I’m really looking forward to listening to more audiobooks by this narrator.

Great characters!

Enjoyed the storyline that brought the leads together. Susan does a great job building believable characters and showing how the two main characters fall in love. Not the genre I usually read, but I was very impressed with her story and genuinely was turning “pages” (whatever the audio version of that cliche is?)

Another great series from Susan Stoker!

I can't wait for the next book in this series (or any of Susan's series!) I've been on a Susan Stoker audiobook binge since May 2nd and I've loved every second of the past 10 weeks! Susan's Mountain Mercenaries series hooked me and I couldn't stop until I had went thru every one of her Seal, Delta, Texas Heroes and Ace Security series! I love how they're all interconnected and you get peeks of some of your favorites from other series. Susan Stoker has built a helluva world with all of her hot alpha heros and I've loved all the heroine's in each of her books too. I've had a total blast escaping into Susan's books the last 2 months and 6 days and I'm honestly sad that I can't just one-click the next audiobook and find out what Phantom, Lefty, Brain and Oz are up to. I'm REALLY excited for her Silverstone series and I'm hoping I get to learn how Bull and his team tortured the hell out of del Rio before they killed him down in Lima, Peru.
If you haven't read (or listened 😉) to any of Susan Stoker's books yet, don't wait another day before you dive into her world!!

Fantastic new spin-off series!

This was such a good story and the characters are wonderful! I loved Trigger and Gillian. He was not over the top alpha and she was so strong! I love that he calls her Di. 😁The narration of Virginia Rose is always a pleasure to listen to. She even does a great job at the male voices. I enjoyed this book very much! Susan Stoker doesn’t seem to be slowing down at all. She remains at the top of her romantic suspense game!! Can’t wait for Lefty’s story!

Great Book to read

I loved this book. I just can't wait for book 2!

The narrator in this book acted very well. You can tell the changes of her voice for each character.

Thank you!

Thank you Susan! ♥️ This book is just as great as your other books. I was kind of sad it was over after the epilogue. 🙈 can’t wait for Kinley to come out! 🤩

Wow!

Another brilliant book by Susan Stoker. This is her new Delta team series and covers the story of Gillian and Trigger. It was great to see a few familiar faces in this book (I love it when characters from earlier books pop up) I don't know how Susan manages to keep writing fresh and exciting books but am so pleased she does. I'm quite new to audio books but found the narration by Virginia Rose a brilliant choice. Can't wait for the next in the series.
