Off the Grid
by Karyn Good
A committed doctor to Vancouver’s inner city, nothing fazes Sophie Monroe—until a pregnant teenager shows up at her clinic on Christmas Eve requesting sanctuary and claiming the baby’s father is one of the city’s most influential businessmen. Sophie is in over her head and thankful when aid shows up in the form of an attorney who’s a little too confident and a lot too sexy.
Family Law expert Caleb Quinn just wants a date, a chance to prove he isn’t the elitist jerk Sophie assumes. Helping deliver a baby is not what he has in mind. But before long protecting a traumatized teenager and her son become his first priority. Even if saving them pits him against the baby’s father, a childhood friend. A man who will do anything to keep his dark side private.
“I’m here,” he said.
Sophie let out a laugh. She pushed back what she resolved were the last tears of the day. Rolled her eyes, looked up into his. “Lucky you.”
His lips stopped a hair’s breath away from hers. His hands slipped through the strands of her hair. “Exactly.”
Caleb’s lips were so warm against hers. In the dark, behind closed eyelids, she felt the swipe of his tongue. More warmth. No. Heat. And she wanted to absorb it all.
Her mouth opened and she let him in, free to do what he wanted as long as he didn’t stop. It calmed the crazy in her head, leaving her feeling less lost and helpless. Less hopeless. He pulled her in closer, his hand on her waist, one on her cheek. Not pressing. Not leading.
Her hands fumbled over the wrinkled linen of his 164

dress shirt, over the unbuttoned section at his neck. Down sleeves rolled up to his elbows, across his broad back. The scrape of stubble on his neck and along his jawline was rough under her mouth. The stiff strands of hair at the base of his skull tickled her fingertips. It turned soft and tempting as she moved upwards and grabbed hold and captured his mouth.
He had big hands. Better to hold the world up with. They cradled her head and she sighed. He was preparing to stop the kiss. It was in the little nips, his own sigh. When he lifted his head her eyelids were slow to drift open, weighted down by passion and exhaustion. She didn’t want to let the moment go.
Dr Sophie Moore runs a clinic in downtown Eastside Vancouver where” the fight to survive doesn’t take a vacation.” It’s Christmas Eve and she’s shutting down the clinic to go to a fundraiser when her sister Marie shows up with a teenager ready to give birth. Marie won’t let her call an ambulance, she insists Sophie has to deliver the baby. When Sophie calls lawyer Caleb Quinn, who’s supposed to be her escort for the evening to bail on him, he decides to come to the clinic to see what’s wrong. What he finds out throws his world into a tail spin. Murder, blackmail, and prostitution are just some of the things they have to get through on the way to helping the young girl and her baby. While all this is going on Sophie and Caleb are falling in love and trying to keep everyone safe. I really liked this book it was fast paced and I really liked Sophie and Marnie, they were both strong willed, and self controled. I will definitely be reading more from the author. 4 fangs

One day the inevitable happened and I knew without question the time was right. What to write was never the issue – romance and the gut wrenching journey towards forever.
