Wanted: A good home for a stray.
Needed: A worthy man.
Miguel arrived in town a broken man, having barely escaped an abusive relationship with his life. Since then he’s buried his deepest desire for family and taken what life doles out; one-night stands are as close to a relationship as he’s going to get.
Federal Agent Nate Richardson; focused, reliable, career minded. No time for relationships outside work. Nate doesn’t care about sex and doesn’t believe in love. He’s also never met Miguel Ramirez—until now.
Nate is a force Miguel doesn’t foresee; a red-haired officer of the law with a galaxy of freckles splashed across his face, he encompasses everything about relationships Miguel has rejected as out of his reach.
Outside forces drive Nate and Miguel apart, they’ll need to work together to conquer their demons and win the fight for their love.
River Home is a dual POV about a man with a beautiful soul who refuses to be kept down and the stoic federal agent who falls in love with him. One man knows what he wants, the other needs convincing. The Shielded Hearts series follows a different couple in each book as they stop killers, unravel a human trafficking ring and fall in love.

I just finished book 5 River Home.
Miguel a sweet man who got his own book who's a good friend of Buck his boss at the mechanic shop.
Miguel was in a abusive relationship he escaped from. Going to one town to another he finally found a home in Skagit, Washington.
In chapter one he slept with a guest at his best friend's wedding .
Later after he got busted, he was ashamed so he left the wedding party. Then he met Nate after that .
Kevin and Dom are brothers who work with Buck and Miguel who you meet in early books.
Then later Miguel's ex finds him and all hell break loose
Miguel tells Nate about his last foster parent Mr. Singh who gave him a skill to work on cars instead of stealing them. He showed Miguel what true family was.
When you turn 18 in the foster system there is no where to go. No help No support..
Ella keatons's story tells about mystery, suspense, love story, and family.
Nate never felt loved or accepted toward his father after his mother died while Nate was only 3.
Only Mel his sister cared for him and loved him until he was in junior high.
Secrets exposed close to the ending.
I cried, laugh and wanted to protect Miguel so much.
I really enjoyed all get novels.
Can't wait to read book 6.
You won't be disappointed.
See for yourself
Buck Swanfeldt is pretty cool and a good guy too. He saved Miguel, gave him a job at Swanfeldt’s Garage and a place to settle. Buck trusts Miguel and has no problem leaving him in charge of the garage, but still Miguel doesn’t seem to realize that he’s very important to Buck. When Miguel gives his situation some deep thought, he decides he no longer wants to be a third wheel or to disappoint his friends anymore. He’s still struggling over a bad experience with an ex and feels he’ll never have a solid relationship with anyone, and so decides to swear off men and find his own place to live. As Miguel is adjusting to his new home, he finds himself in fear of new noises and the possibility he’s being stalked.
Nate Richardson is part of Adam Klay’s FBI team. He’s dedicated to the job and feels his life is sort of simple, boring, and he’s definitely lacking in any type of a relationship. He’s also trying to figure out his sexuality. His estranged family is beyond dysfunctional, especially his father, and he’s lost the special connection he once shared with his sister, Mel, who’d raised him from the time he was three, and now won’t admit to Nate what caused the fallout between them. With those personal issues, and now the newness of this chemistry between him and Miguel, they also face other dangerous situations. Nate’s working an undercover case involving drugs and human trafficking as well as the worries he has about his partner.
Miguel and Nate both have to learn that family does not always mean blood relations, but it’s the people you meet along the way who show they care about you the most.
I really liked how Elle Keaton offers readers a good picture of Miguel. It certainly puts him in a different light and explains why he’d acted like he did. Nate was a solid figure for Miguel and kept him grounded. Nate finds himself facing some heart-wrenching secrets too. I thought Buck was just a great presence in this story—it shows how he appreciates and treasures his friendship with Miguel. The plot was well written and had a good pace, and there’s definite tension with the on-going human trafficking case that brings action and danger to the storyline. And there are cameos galore too. Adam Klay, who still yells at everyone, plays a role, as well as Weir, who pops in to help, and Seth, Sascha, and Joey. I was tempted to read their stories again, and I’m sure I will.
I’m looking forward to the next installment in the Accidental Roots series, as it’s always a surprise who gets the spotlight next. As a side note, the River Home cover is a little different from the others in this series, and it’s nicely done.
I enjoyed this one. Miguel has been a favourite since he appeared and we got to know a little bit about him in Buck’s story, so I have been looking forward to this. I liked the pairing with Nate. I liked that when they got together Miguel was the one stressing while the inexperienced Nate was fine.
I enjoyed Nate’s relationship with the team and wanted to know even more about his back story. We got parts but I think there was more there. His friendship with his partner was really good.
I did like that Miguel got some closure from his ex and the way that came about. I’m still not sure how he found him and that was kind of glossed over.
I loved Angel and definitely want to see more from him and Kevin.

Miguel was funny and he was the draw that kept me hooked.
Mate was laid back and innocent. He never had a relationship but he wanted one with Miguel.
It was hard for him to trust as he was still looking over his shoulder for his crazy ex. Getting involved with another cop was not in his plan.
It would take a whole lot of love and, patience to change his mind.
Really good writing and keep on the edge read.
