An Uncommon Protector (A Lone Star Hero’s Love Story)
Author: Shelley Shepard Gray
Publisher: Zondervan, February 7, 2017
Christian Fiction, Historical Fiction
Description from Goodreads:
Overwhelmed by the responsibilities of running a ranch on her own, Laurel Tracey decides to hire a convict—a man who’s just scary enough to take care of squatters and just desperate enough to agree to a one year post…
Former soldier Thomas Baker knows he’s in trouble when he finds himself jailed because he couldn’t pay a few fines. Laurel’s offer might be his only ticket out. Though she’s everything he ever dreamed of in a woman—sweet and tender-hearted, yet strong—he’s determined to remain detached, work hard on her behalf, and count the days until he’s free again.
It’s always refreshing to pick up a Christian Fiction book. An Uncommon Protector is a tender, sweet love story. It was a quick read probably due to the short chapters. The main characters were very likable and I loved following their romance as it grew. I love historical fiction so I thoroughly enjoyed the parts where it told what it was like to be a Confederate prisoner on Johnson’s Island in Lake Erie following the Civil War. This was the first time I have ever read any books by Shelley Shepard Gray and hope to read more in the future.
This book was given to me from Zondervan through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
