Description

Some connections are more intense than others. How far as they willing to go to keep that bond alive?

As a civilian contractor, Sierra Clarkson thought she’d found the perfect way to serve her country, short of joining the military…until she was kidnapped from a base in Afghanistan. Turns out terrorists don’t care if you’re a soldier or not; everyone bleeds the same. Even worse, no one knows she’s been taken. Her missing belongings point to desertion—which means no one is looking for her, either

But someone is.

Fred “Grover” Groves never forgot the redheaded spitfire working the chow line on a base in the Afghani desert. He’d felt an instant attraction to the petite woman, a connection deep in his bones…which Sierra herself clearly didn’t feel, since she’d promised to keep in touch after his mission ended, only to ghost him—and seemingly her job. 

But she didn’t.

When several contractors go missing from the base, it looks more and more like Sierra didn’t abandon her post. Then a long-lost letter proves she’d followed through on her promise to stay in touch with Grover—and suddenly, all bets are off. He bucks every protocol he’s ever known after returning to Afghanistan. If Sierra’s still alive, he’ll find her. Or die trying.

But Sierra is hardly a damsel in distress. Grover witnesses her strength and bravery firsthand in a dark desert cave. And at home, against a common enemy, he’ll witness her sheer nerve, her deep love, as they both fight for the life they’re trying to build together. 

** Shielding Sierra is the 8th and final book in the Delta Team Two Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

    I have rarely found a book that I want to take a while to read because I simply don’t want it to end!! This is one of those books and the epilogue had tears welling in my eyes!! Love Susan and her books!!

    Wow what a fantastic book I loved the love and devotion Fred (Grover) Groves gave to Sierra Clarkson who had been kidnapped and held in a Afghanistan terrorist group for a year . This book tells the story of Grover’s obsession with the rescue of Sierra . This is the final book of the Delta Team 2 series and concludes with updates on each of the team members and their families .

    It’s Grover and Sierra’s turn. When he first meets the diminutive red head, Grover is struck. He looks forward to getting to know her better via letters, but when he hears nothing from her, he’s truly disappointed. Then he learns that she’s left Afghanistan and no one knows where she went. What is more unsettling is that several other American contractors have seemed to disappear as well. When he gets a letter from Sierra, dated a year earlier, he knows something bad has happened to her and sets off to find her. Sierra wanted to serve her country in some capacity, so she signed on with a contractor to work in food service. The last thing she expected was to be taken hostage by a low level member of the Taliban who uses her to perfect his groups’ torture tactics to rise up in the ranks. Even further from her mind is seeing Grover again, as a fellow prisoner no less! This was an excellent coda to the series and the lovely epilogues that follow are heart warming.

    It’s always sad when I finish up with one of Susan’s series and this one went out with a bang Grover and Sierra’s story was a nail biter from her being held captive for a year in Afghanistan to the militia group in Texas their love for each other was great . The synopses into everyone’s life over the years is always appreciated. I highly recommend any of her books
