Honor’s Refuge (hardback)


Sinking beneath waves of visible scars and unseen wounds, he clings to the lifeline she offers.

Phil Osbourne of Special Forces A-Team returned home from the military missing a leg and feeling like half a man, but Melisa Braxton has loved him since they met. When things take a dangerous turn at the women’s shelter where Melissa works, Phil must overcome wounds both seen and unseen to find a strength long buried–and save the woman he loves.

In stock (can be backordered)


When she was just five years old, Melissa Braxton watched her father take her mother’s life. Separated from her sister, Lola, at that time, Melissa grew up with a strong desire to help those stuck in abusive relationships. It’s why she became a family therapist and opened a domestic abuse shelter.

After losing a leg to a gunshot wound in the line of duty, Phil Osbourne has felt like a man without a purpose–until he hears Melissa’s story and decides to use his Special Forces contacts to track down her missing sister. He knows what he discovers will break Melissa’s heart. What he doesn’t realize is that helping the women reunite will bring the cartel down on them like the Category 5 hurricane striking Miami.

Bruised yet not quite broken, Melissa and Phil battle the storm and the cartel, calling on strength they didn’t know they had to escape death, save the innocent, and–just maybe–find healing in each other’s arms.

    What a great series!

    Phil and Melissa have been dancing around each other since he got back in town. They meet at least once a week for breakfast but that’s as far as Phil will let it go. He doesn’t think he’s good enough for her since he’s a recovering addict and lost a leg while serving with a Special Ops team. Can Melissa and God change his mind?

    Melissa is an abuse counselor for a good reason. She was there the night her father killed her mother and unborn brother. Since that night she’s been searching for her younger sister. When Phil tells her that he’s found her sister, she’s overjoyed. Until he tells her who her husband is and that he’s been abusing her. Now they need to try and rescue her while staying alive.

    I really enjoyed this battered women romantic suspense. I love how each of these books is so different from the last. It was cool seeing some different parts of the legal system and a couple cute kiddos. I can’t wait for the next book!
