Shelter for Sophie Ebook CoverBlurb:

She’s shy, he’s stoic…not the hardest personality traits to overcome, but Sophie Carson and Roman “Chief” Proudfit have their work cut out for them.

Sophie has a crush on the silent-but-studly firefighter next door. She’s been pining away silently while secretly helping the hardworking man by mowing his lawn—which he thinks is being done by her nonexistent husband and/or boyfriend. He’s definitely not big on neighborly chitchat, but with her stutter, that suits Sophie just fine. But now a misunderstanding at a bar has put him even further out of her reach.

Roman’s difficult upbringing on an Indian reservation is a sore spot, so when he thinks Sophie is taking advantage of poor people for medical trials at her workplace, he lets her know exactly what he thinks. But when he discovers he misunderstood, he’s man enough to admit it…and also that he should have opened his eyes to his beautiful, sensitive neighbor sooner.

As the couple gets closer, each helping the other overcome lifelong pains, for the first time in years, Roman has something to live for other than his job. And, as he discovers when Sophie puts herself in danger, something even bigger to lose…

** Shelter for Sophie is the 8th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Susan Stoker is one of my absolute favorite authors. Her heroes have everyday jobs and are sexy alphas who protect and love heroines who find themselves in precarious situations. And one of the things that I love most is that her heroines aren’t perfect. They aren’t size 4 women who have wonderful lives. They have real problems, like seizure disorders, and they stutter, just like our heroine in this novel, Sophie.

I can empathize with these ladies because I live with chronic health issues myself, and I’m certainly not perfect. I have my own alpha hero as well. Sophie is the next-door neighbor to Chief, who works at Station 7 with Penelope, Moose, Squirrel and the others we’ve met. She’s had a crush on her Navajo neighbor for the past year, but he thinks she has a boyfriend and he even gave her 20 dollars one day after she mowed his lawn to thank her boyfriend.

Sophie is hanging out at the Sloppy Cow one night after work with her friends from the burn lab and they are discussing her crush on Chief, she has no clue that he’s listening in the high-backed booth behind her. When Chief mistakenly overhears how Sophie recruits patients for her studies, he becomes angry and confronts her, soon finding out he’s made a huge error.  Chief slowly gets to know Sophie through her friends and co-workers, even the one doctor who is a real jerk.

There are a couple of heart-stopping incidents in this story, and we get to know a bit of the Navaho culture through Chief’s telling Sophie, and Sophie is just and amazing woman who shows compassion to everyone no matter the circumstance. Just an amazing book from Ms Stoker.

Author:

Just a subbie, and an author who loves books, especially the kinky ones. I've been reading since I could hold a book and I have a voracious appetite for them. I have that dreaded disease, oneclickitis. I probably have at least 5500 books just on my Kindle alone.I am also a writer and I'm currently writing my first book, which is the first in a planned series.
