Shelter for Quinn
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 is the 13th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
Quinn and Driftwood
What a great read. Quinn is such a tough character but still fights her demons with her birthmark, but Driftwood hangs on for dear life and helps bring her around to a life of beauty, love and trust. Realistic lines with religious zealots and freaks also plays into the story with some real weird folks!!! Page turning suspense!
Some Twists to This One
Quinn Dixon has faded a lot of rejection and downright prejudice in her life, all because of the port wine birthmark on her face. She’s self conscious around new people, especially men, even her crush John.
When John “Driftwood” Trettle first sets eyes on Quinn, he’s captivated by her emerald eyes and beautiful smile. He sees the real Quinn, not the birthmark. He’s determined to get to know her better. A lot better.
Another great book
I love Susan Stoker’s books and this one is no different. Driftwood and Quinn’s story was filled with all the emotions and in true Susan Stoker style alpha males and their strong women.
