As she faced the flames, she realized two things with absolute certainty. She could bear the heat, but she could not bear losing him.

She’s shy, he’s stoic…not the hardest personality traits to overcome, but Sophie Carson and Roman “Chief” Proudfit definitely 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 admit he should have opened his eyes to his beautiful, sensitive neighbor sooner.
As the couple gets closer, each helping the other overcoming 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.

    Wow! I was moved to tears in parts of this story. I have never read a book with all the perfect attention to detail of the different disabilities tossed in with coverage of the Navajo beliefs. I couldn’t put it down!

    Great read
  • Great story

    By sbsbrinson
    Really good storyline and characters. Chief meets Sophie and is immediately intrigued but not sure she is a good person because he totally misunderstood something that was said. He soon learns Sophie’s true and good heart and knows he has found the other half of his soul. Intrigue, greed, and a great love all are part of this story.
  • Boring

    Only made it about half way through. So boring I couldn’t finish.
  • Stereotypes

    By Rebelliously fly
    There were a lot of gross stereotypical things for characters that were unnecessary. I read the sample and had to turn the book away. The black child and his mom were poorly represented first of all. The author made the mom a single mom who gave birth as a teen and the father died from what the character “guesses” to be gang violence? GUESSES? Like how do you just guess that? Because they’re black? To mention that the character was black was necessary but to create that backstory was ridiculous. AND THE NAMES? Are we serious! I had to absolutely stop when it came to the mentally challenged janitor whose happy but with a “low IQ”. Like why? Why is this necessary? I just couldn’t stop cringing and I had to give up.
  • Disappointing

    By Nicky237ar45
    This book is full of stereotypical views about Black people and it is disgusting. Don’t read, don’t waste your time, and definitely don’t spend a dime.

    First time reading this author. There were parts I liked, parts I thought were unnecessary, parts that were just too silly to take seriously.
  • Very Enjoyable

    By Doingthisforcoinsssssdzzzzz
    This eighth book in the Badge of Honor series is no disappointment. This time it’s Chief’s turn to find his one and only. (Roman) Chief has great pride in his Navajo culture and respect for the beliefs of his people. When he meets Sophie, he finds someone who always respects others and who is kind hearted to a fault. After some misunderstandings, he also discovers a deep connection, someone who compliments his personality and gets him talking, and who he would protect at all costs. A great read!
  • Another Best Seller has FINALLY arrived!!

    By Rtbbenson
    This story starts off with a bang! Everyone is at a bar (at their own tables of course). 1 of them overhears (eavesdrops actually) on the other and you can imagine what fun Susan Stoker had with us there. It just gets better and better from there. The entire book has a great flow to it and the audio version is OUTSTANDING! Erin the narrator did an outstanding job with Sofies stutter. There are so many cumbs/crumbles, Easter Eggs, clues (whatever you like to call them) throughout this book for things to come. You Will NOT regret reading this story at all!!!
