Shannon Stone writes stories that are believable and each story provides a thought provoking message. She which immediately draws the reader into a relationship with her characters. It’s amazing. Men and women who seek significance in life. The author captivates her readers until the end.
Ms. Stone’s ability to quickly introduce you to characters that parallel people in our own lives. You could almost swear you’ve met them all before. Many times we find love when we least expect it. People often go ‘looking for love in all the wrong places. Shannon, the author always gives people to hope.

All of Shannon Stone’s books read like a true-to-life book. The author does a wonderful job of creating believable characters. It is refreshing to read a book that isn’t sugarcoated, portraying a character that is hard to relate to. Just the opposite with Shannon Stone’s books. I especially appreciate the strong message that is woven into the every story line.

Most Unexpected Romance is one of the best short romance stores I’ve ever read. Shannon Stone gives a lesson to be learned by all. Never judge a book by it’s cover. It’s a very enlightening story and I enjoy it from the beginning to the end. I highly recommend it to anyone.

RISKY ROMANCE is a powerful story about an abusive husband. I couldn’t help but cheer and cry as the characters struggled to find answers. A great read and I highly recommend it.

When I read MASK OF TRUST, I couldn’t put the book down. It held my attention right from the beginning. I had to get the next book to find out what happens. I read all three books while recovering from lung surgery. I have already ordered Shannon Stone’s newest book.

ROMANCE ILLUSION was a great book. What attracted me most to it is the fact that the characters were believable. Most characters in some books are so unrealistic that the story doesn’t seem real. This book seemed like a real life story, and it caught my attention — so much so that I read it one sitting. I liked it because it was short and entertaining.

The content, storyline, and character development in all of Shannon Stone’s books are excellent. As a book reviewer, one thing is of utmost importance to me in recommending a book, especially romance – does it have value – did it leave me with a valuable lesson? Shannon Stone will always give you a thought provoking lesson to apply to your own life.

I finished RISKY ROMANCE last night! Wonderful! I am not a crier, but I had a tough time holding back my tears because I could relate to the abuse. I am super excited about Stone’s the next book!!!!

I read LOVE STALK over the weekend. It was short good read. Left me with a valuable lesson. Never a dull moment. It held my attention continuously. It is very well written and the story flows smoothly. Can’t wait to read Shannon’s new book, and I hope there will be many more to come.

I loved the books, MASK OF TRUST. Of particular interest to me (working in the medical profession) was the accurate depiction of the shooting and how the bullet affected his life. The story kept me wanting more and was real a page-turner!! I’m reading book three today – I’m sure it will be a shocker!

SHANNON STONE. Shame on you – I was glued to this book. RISKY ROMANCE is a compelling story about an abusive husband. Finally, she meets someone to remove her and keep her safe. The story is filled with believable characters and recognizable problems. What a great quick read!
