Publisher Description

A brand new series by New York Times bestselling author, Susan Stoker


The Refuge is a place to heal. Where those who have experienced traumatic events can go to heal. It’s run by seven former military men who’ve seen more than their fair share of the ugliness in the world.


Friend-zoned since childhood by the most amazing man she’s ever known, that doesn’t stop Alaska Stein from doing whatever’s necessary—including lying to the military—to be by his side when Drake ends up in a German hospital after a mission gone wrong. The broken man in the bed is not the boy she once knew. Despite that, and despite years apart, when Drake turns his gaze to Alaska, he sees her. Looks beyond the plain-Jane exterior to his childhood friend beneath. He may never be anything more than a friend, but putting her needs aside to see him whole is a sacrifice she’s willing to make. 


Drake “Brick” Vandine walks away from the SEALs after his recovery, building a life around helping others struggling with PTSD. But he can’t walk away from Alaska. She was there for him in his darkest moment and her spine of steel saw him through one of the biggest challenges of his career. And now, although she lives half a world away, she’s still his anchor, his daily dose of support as he and several friends build The Refuge. A place of peace, a place of healing. But, for Drake, also a place of loneliness.

When the unthinkable befalls Alaska during a trip to Russia, it’s Drake’s turn to drop everything and race to her aid. Safely back at The Refuge, he just as quickly realizes what he’s failed to see for two decades—his oldest, dearest friend is the love of his life.


A revelation that may be too little, too late. Because Drake’s brought the enemy right to their door.


**Deserving Alaska is the 1st book in The Refuge Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

OMG!!

This was a heartbreaking, riveting and action packed story you can’t put down. I LOVED reading about Drake (Brick) and Alaska’s early days of friendship. And the life altering situations they went through to get to their HEA had my heart pounding the whole time. This was an awesome start to the new series and I can’t wait to read more.

Wow!

The Refuge has been touched upon in other series, but now we get to know the men and their women. This is Drake “Brick” Vandine and Alaska Stein’s story which began 20 years before, when they met in high school, and picks up 16 years later.
Having lost contact after graduation, when Drake is injured during an op that killed the rest of his team, Alaska rushes to his side as his “fiancé.” Years later, when Alaska is the one in trouble, Drake is the one to rush to her aid and then offer her a stay at The Refuge. That’s when things really begin to happen!

Edge of your seat read

I’m a romance girl, but this book drew me in deeper with the anticipation of the outcome with twist and had me on the edge of my seat. Couldn’t put it down.
