Book Description

Morgan Stone will do anything to keep his daughter, Katie. But would he steal? Yes. Lie? Absolutely. Cheat? Most definitely.

When Jeff, Katie’s biological father, threatens to file for paternity, Morgan, blind to anything but the need to protect Katie, strikes back with photographs of Jeff with one woman while engaged to another. With evidence of his ex-partner’s infidelity, he meets Jeff’s fiancée, Kristen St. John. In less than thirty seconds, he destroys her dreams with damning photographs of Jeff in the arms of another woman.

Can Kristin believe the evidence of her fiancés’ infidelity? Caught in the middle of a battle between two men, Kristin doesn’t know who to believe or trust, especially her heart when it comes to Morgan. She finds herself falling for this fierce, loyal man. But when it comes to loving Kristen, will Morgan find it within himself to give up everything, even Katie?

2.0 out of 5 stars You'll need to suspend your disbelief August 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book wasn't badly written but the storyline was really pretty weak. So much of what happens would never happen in real life.

**Spoilers**
The h is engaged to the H's nemesis. The H is trying to prevent the nemesis from getting his daughter. I'm not sure about the law but I can't believe that the nemesis would have any legal rights even if he was the child's biological father. The h then accepts a job working for the H, which again stretches credibility since she knows that there is a huge problem between her fiance and the H. I really didn't buy the fact that a) the H would employ her and b) would then act on any attraction. The author never created the tension in a believable way. We're also supposed to believe that the h has never slept with her fiance but at the drop of a hat she sleeps with the H. I could go on and on but I won't bother.

Anyway I couldn't accept all the different problems with the plot and can't recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Protecting Katie July 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have to say I was in love with Kristen as soon as I started to read Protecting Katie. She is such a real character that you believe in her the entire time. You want her to have her happily ever after but you understand why she is afraid of it. You completely understand why she does what she does in the book, and you want to cry with her and be happy for her, kind-of like your best friend. She is torn between believing what her head is telling her and what her heart is telling her.
Morgan, well he acts like an ass and you want to hate him, but then you realize why he is the way he is. If you are a parent, you understand why he needs to protect Katie, why he would fight till the end for her, I mean she is a 8 year old little girl, who wouldn't fight for her. Then Kristen changes his plans and he is unsure what to do. Then there is Jeff, he is all business. You understand quickly what is truly important to him, and who is just a pawn in his sad game.
All of these characters are written with such depth that you want to love them or hate them, and the story is believable, it is so real and yet so perfect too.
This is the first book I have read by H. D Thomson, but it will not be the last!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read June 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book kept my attention from the get go. It was face paced. So much so that I finished it in record time. I not only loved the relationship between Morgan and Kristen but also the fierce love Morgan had for his daughter, Katie. There was an underlining mystery to the plot that really added a nice layer to the book. I look forward to more of H.D. Thomson’s books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT READ! May 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book and just as good as The Long Road Home when it
comes to character development. I love how the author is able to get me
invested in the characters and right inside their heads. I also loved
the relationship between Morgan and Katie. There were some nice twists
that I wasn't expecting and I don't want to go into detail because it
will give too much away, but this was truly a great story and a fast read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Awesome Awesom August 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was very well written! If someone was trying to take your child what would you do? Morgan would do anything to protect the child he believed to be his, when he finds out she is not his and that her bio-dad has set his sites on her he will do everything to stop that from happening, he hires Kristen to find out information on Bi-dad Jeff, because she is his fiance' what he didn't expect was to fall in love. This is a very sweet story with a few twist and turns, you find your self wanting to just skip to the end because you cant wait to see how it ends..although you keep reading because your so intrigued...Awesome book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Protecting Katie by H.D. Thomson July 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Protecting Katie is a suspenseful and touching tale of one man's love for his daughter and his need to protect her. From the beginning you are drawn into this story and really come to understand all of the characters and their motivation behind the way they act, and what they do.

Kristen is a great heroine that wins you over right from the start. She is real and you journey with her through this story hoping that she can find happiness, even if she does not trust it. With Morgan, you just want to knock him upside the head and make him stop being such as ass. The connection and intensity between the two is fierce and wonderful. The lengths that both go to protect Katie from her biological father, and the love that that blooms between them is unsure, tentative, and grows stronger as it is tested.

Get lost in a story of love, betrayal, redemption, and the strength of the heart!

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I received an ARC for an honest review.

I thoroughly enjoyed H.D. Thomson's new title, Protecting Katie. She brought many elements in that story that kept me captivated from the moment I started. In the very beginning, I knew it was going to catch my attention. I was not disappointed ever while reading. In fact, I read it in one sitting.

I look forward to reading more work of H.D. Thomson. If any book's are like these, I will definitely keep my eyes out for more of her stories.
