Shelter for Elizabeth, Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Book 5 by Susan Stoker
Date of Publication: May 17, 2016
Elizabeth Parkins lived through a nightmare come true—getting kidnapped by a serial killer. Seeking a fresh start, she moves to Texas, but escaping her demons proves impossible when she’s too terrified to leave her own apartment. A small, accidental fire sparks a coping method she’d never expected, and brings an amazing man to her door.
Firefighter Cade “Sledge” Turner’s idyllic life ended the day his sister was kidnapped. Now he knows firsthand that tragedy can befall anyone, at any time. Meeting Elizabeth on the job was a gift. Cade can envision spending his life with this woman. He understands what she’s been through, is willing to help her heal…though even Cade is unaware of Beth’s new secret obsession.
As Beth takes steps to help herself heal, and Cade attempts to earn her trust and prove his own, they’re both about to be tested—in a way that could see everything they’ve worked for go up in flames.
* Shelter for Elizabeth is the 5th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
What a truly inspiring read!!
We met Elizabeth Parkins enduring the worst moment in her life in Protecting Summer(Seal Of Protection#4).. This book is dealing with the aftermath of it..
Elizabeth, wow I’m in awe of how amazing she was, Yes she was dealing with the aftermath of the Kidnapping, She is struggling in some aspects, but what makes her truly amazing is how she deals with everything else.. She meets Cade, through her friend Penelope, who is Cade’s sister.
Cade is so patient and so caring, He doesn’t care that Elizabeth is dealing with her nightmare, He sees what’s on the inside and is in for the long haul..
This is a book of overcoming our fears and becoming stronger.. It’s about not letting the monsters win and take back control of our lives, in dealing with things in our own way.
I loved Penelope, she was an amazing friend to Elizabeth, She helped her deal the best way possible.
I love this series so much, It’s one of my go to re-read series.
I recommend this book to everyone.
