Freak. Witch. Ugly. Abomination.

Having grown up with a port-wine birthmark on her face and neck, Quinn Dixon’s heard them all. Her own mother couldn’t bear to touch her, let alone strangers. Years of stares and insults from everyone from classmates to foster families have made her understandably reluctant to trust. So when John comes along, of course he couldn’t be interested in more than a brief affair. He’ll get sick of all the gawking and whispers soon enough and leave her…just like everyone else.

John “Driftwood” Trettle was captivated by Quinn the moment they met. After months of skirting around their attraction, one pivotal evening finds John seizing the reins and refusing to be denied a chance to prove he’s worthy of Quinn’s time, her trust, and her love. To show her he’ll have her back, always, and defend her against anyone cruel or stupid enough to hurt his woman.

But he can’t protect against an unknown threat. Even if it wears a familiar face…









SHELTER FOR QUINN by Susan Stoker is a story filled with love, hurt, danger, suspense and heartwarming friendships.  Quinn, living her life constantly being judged and ridiculed due to a port-wine birthmark on her face, still manages to be a strong, independent woman with a heart of gold.  John, a sexy firefighter, sees beyond the birthmark to the beauty within.  I adored both of these characters and seeing them together makes the heart sing.  John was ever so patient with Quinn as she struggled to believe he could see beyond the birthmark and watching Quinn grow and blossom was a joy.   Ms. Stoker certainly knows how to write a villain and she did not disappoint in this one.  It is romantic suspense at its best and keeps the reader on edge as to what will happen.    Having read the previous books in the series, it was fun to "catch up" with some other characters, although certainly can be read as a stand alone with no issues.  If you enjoy a tale that has edge of your seat suspense and danger as well as tug at your heartstrings love, you do not want to miss this one.  (received ARC for honest review)

LEGEND by Sawyer Bennett ★★★★★ AVAILABLE NOW!

 Legend (Arizona Vengeance, Book #3)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: February 5, 2019

The Arizona Vengeance is hockey’s hottest new team. But hockey’s hottest goalie is learning that even the best players sometimes need an assist.

Everything is clicking for the Vengeance. We may be new, but we’re well on our way to winning the championship, and I’m having the time of my life headlining the sports media as the hottest goalie--hell, player--ever. I for one am going to live up to my name . . . because I am Legend Bay.

Dragging my ass home from the gym, I’m blinded by some gaudy, glowing holiday lights. As usual, my hot-as-hell neighbor Pepper Nantais has gone way over the top. But just as I’m about to tell her off, something else catches my eye . . . Seems like Santa left me a present, and not one I was expecting.

As life takes an unexpected turn, I realize that there’s much more to Pepper than meets the eye. Sure, she’s gorgeous. And exasperating. And her taste in decorating may be a bit . . . unique.

But beneath her carefree demeanor is a fierce determination and a heart of gold. And before I know it I’ve fallen for her. Hard . . .

Pepper is exactly the woman I never knew I needed.

LEGEND by Sawyer Bennett!  Well, I don't know how she does it, but Ms. Bennett once again has produced a WOW!  I adored LEGEND - the man and the story.  Legend is a sexy, masculine hockey player but, boy, does he have a heart of gold that made me melt.  Pepper, his neighbor, is spunky, colorful and full of life.  Together, they were fun to watch as they traversed the path that was laid before them.  For me, when a story has all the fixins - makes me laugh, shed a tear, hold my breath and cheer and scream - it's a winner.  This tale has heartwarming moments as Legend adjusts to being a Dad, but there are also moments of danger and fear that were certainly gripping too.  I have been a big fan of Ms. Bennett's previous hockey series, Cold Fury, and was nervous to try this new one out but, since book one of Vengeance, I have been hooked.  Cannot wait for Dax's story next!  (received ARC for honest review)
