Rescued Heart (Titan World) by Tarina Deaton



Goodreads Review




From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and Tarina Deaton comes an exciting collaboration…


“Please, Jordan. It’s Emme.”

The last thing Major Jordan Grant expected was to be pulled off his unit’s deployment for a civilian mission. But when Titan calls, you answer — especially when the mission is to rescue the younger sister of your childhood best friend.

Moments away from death, NGO nurse Emme France could only pray for a miracle. The last person she expected to see in the smoke and dust was Jordan Grant, her teenage crush and litmus test of all the men she’d dated ever since.

Lying low at Titan’s exotic Abu Dhabi headquarters while the media furor around her rescue settles, Emme and Jordan explore a mutual attraction that is no longer young and innocent. Days in the desert paradise ignite desire and blur reality…until they return home, where Jordan rejoins his deployed unit and Emme is left alone to reevaluate her life and priorities.

Their passion was forged in the fires of combat. Will the home fires be enough to keep the burn alive?




Rescued Heart is another fantastic addition to the Titan World Series. I can’t get enough of them. I hope when you read them that you feel the same.
5 Emme Lou Who & Jingle Balls Stars
Major Jordan Grant Army Ranger, scarred, slightly tortured as always known the Army but lately he feels as if something has been missing. After meeting Jordan briefly in Stitched up Heart I did a little happy dance when I saw this. Jordan intrigued me the tortured Hero, the man who has lost his way. The man who needs to find a purpose again.
Emme a nurse practitioner decided to go to work in Mali for a non-profit organization while treating patients she is kidnapped and held for ransom. The ransom money is ten million dollars. Money the friends and the family do not have.
Jordan’ best friend’s little sister Emme shared a kiss together as teenagers. Chaste, innocent yet special. Jordan realized that Emme had turned into a beautiful woman but felt that the age difference was a hindrance and well there was his best friend and their father to contend with. Since that kiss he avoided her like the plague. He didn’t want to admit his feelings although they were there.
Emme’s father a General has pulled in every favor that he has been owed
Enter the Titan Group.
A simple rescue mission. To make things easier Jordan has been requested by name to go along so that she has someone she knows, he is pulled off his upcoming deployment which he isn’t happy about although he hesitates he agrees to help although there are some incentives for him involved he doesn’t help out because of them.
Jordan stays on to take care of Emme when they get to Dubai and the underlying feelings or the crush turns into so much more but what happens when they are back in the real world. Jordan will be deployed for six months but they both want it to work. They are great together. They have an easiness about them that is endearing and just wants you to have them have their happily ever after. Emme is strong heroine, sassy but let her insecurities get in the way but Jordan also had insecurities but they manage to work out their differences but in saying that Emme should of held on slightly longer.
Normally I am quite stingy when it comes to giving 5* and originally it was a 4* star read for me but this book is like a good whiskey hence me changing my mind.
Ms. Deaton’s talent flawlessly extended the Titan World and you can’t help but not forget the world around you when reading Emme and Jordan’s story. All the elements that balance out the book the angst, the romance, the suspense and the couple in itself are perfect and I can’t wait to read more of the author’s work in the future.
Parting words from the author:
And Team Titan – I hope I lived up to your expectations and did your boys proud. – You sure did in my opinion.
