Product Description

Raw and risky, a new rural romance that explores the dark side of small towns, and the people who put everything on the line to protect them...

Kat Daily is excited to trade her Sydney airport quarantine uniform for an RSPCA inspector’s uniform and a job in the rural town of Walgarra. A fresh start in a new place, where she can make a real difference in the lives of the animals that she loves.

But Walgarra doesn’t offer a peaceful, bucolic existence. Like many small towns, the distance from urban settings — and urban law enforcement — has allowed a criminal element to set in. Kat may only be looking after animals, but that doesn’t mean she will be immune to people with sinister agendas.

The previous RSCPCA inspector was murdered, and Officer Luka Belovuk is determined to keep the new inspector from the same fate. He may have very broad shoulders, but carrying the safety of the law-abiding community just trying to live their lives has weighed him down, and one more death might be more than he can take.

Not all small towns are quaint and quiet, but they all have one thing in common: a community of people willing to protect their population with everything they have.

Praise for SHELTER:

'The story as a whole, was a stand out from its vivid descriptions, to the likeable characters that all combined in what was a great series starter from author Rhyll Biest.' — Talking Books (Netgalley)

'From the first word this book had a gritty edge and this continues throughout with lots of sexual tension....and more. As Kat's self doubting alter ego she calls Galenka would say, 'This book played with my lady bits'. This was just the book that I needed at the time. I love lots of snarky and sexual innuendo's between characters and I believe this is the first in a series, I certainly wouldn't hesitate to seek out the following books.' — Marlene Pratt (Netgalley)

'I loved the style and feel of this author’s writing. I felt I was in the moment and with the characters seeing just what they did as I read. I wrote an e-mail to my sister telling her to see if she can find this book even before finishing it – I really liked this story in so many ways. This is a new author to me and I am hooked. I look forward to looking for other books to read by her.' — Cathy Geha (Netgalley)

'This is a story that has the best one liners in it honestly the hero Luka and heroine Kat and their banter will have you laughing and smiling throughout this one. Both are in need of some love after being through so much in their childhood and what life has thrown their way so sit back and enjoy their spark filled journey.' — Helen Sibbritt (Netgalley)

'Readers be warned: if you are expecting a cutesy small-town romance, then this is not the book for you. Shelter is a gripping, gritty and affecting tale of secrets, danger and pathos that cleverly juxtaposes nail-biting suspense and heart-pounding jeopardy with humour, emotion and heart. Rhyll Biest certainly does not shy away from dealing with hard-hitting issues such as domestic violence and abuse in her novel, however, Shelter is by no means a melancholic or dispiriting read, but an uplifting, sexy, funny and riveting romantic read that you will find absolutely impossible to resist.' — Julie Bonello (Netgalley)

In 2014, this author wrote my favourite book for the year - the brilliant Unrestrained. Well folks, she has done it again. I just devoured Rhyll Biest's latest book, Shelter, and it's gone with a bullet to my best book of 2017, and it's gonna take a bit of knocking to get it off there!
What did I love about Shelter?
The setting. This is rural romance with a difference, and the blurb does tell us so... there are no rolling valleys, vineyards, sweet-smelling hay bales, mountains, mists, forests, wide-open fields in this book... and if there ARE wide-open fields, they're probably growing marijuana; and if there ARE rolling valleys, there are probably several half-starved horses dying of thirst in them...
This is rural as in rural/regional ugly towns with all the problems of drugs, underemployment, guns and crime (but also with some positive parts of the community)... and our heroine works for the RSPCA and as the book begins, Kat's the new girl in town.
Rhyll Biest does scarred heroines like I've never really seen them in romance. In Unrestrained, the wonderful character of Holly is hiding a terrible physical secret. She's prickly and guarded, and it takes the hero Stein an eon to make Holly trust him enough to let this secret out.
In Shelter, Kat takes 'prickly' to a whole new level, including a secret inner self - the character of 'Galenka' who appears in Kat's thoughts, usually if she's ever in danger of doing something soft or trusting, or showing a speck of vulnerability.
Now, I have to be honest. I could take or leave Galenka. I liked this part of Shelter, but other reviews don't, and other readers won't. I doubt it would have changed my feelings one iota had the Galenka character not been written...

There are so many reasons to love this story. I'll set aside the kickass heroine with a bunch of surprises up her sleeve and the hottie cop hero for now and just say that any book featuring animals is going to be high on my to-read list. Especially rescue animals. And better yet, the heroine is the one rescuing them.

Kat is a former quarantine officer with a hilarious talent for spotting shiftiness who relocates to a country Australian town with a bunch of secrets. She's the new RSPCA officer, replacing the former guy who managed to get killed somehow. That's where Luka, our hero comes in. He knows there are bad guys out there and that they've killed his friend. He doesn't want the same thing to happen to Kat but Kat's not ready to have someone steamrolling over her efforts to succeed in her new job.

The humour mixed with sexiness and a brilliant plot with no-few surprises grabbed me and didn't let go. I absolute love Shelter and I can't wait to read the next in the series. There's a hot enigmatic RSPCA guy with some scars I want to get to know better...

Kat kicks arse and Luka is the ultimate lust worthy hero. This is a story not for the faint hearted. It will tug at your heart strings and leave you begging for more. The perfect blend of compassion, lust and incredible kindness. Bring on more of this dynamic duo!
