Ten years ago, Jackson Hardy joined the Marines, leaving behind a woman he still dreams about. When he’s called home to care for his ten-year-old nephew, no one is more shocked than he to run into Emma again. Or to still have those same feelings. But Jackson isn’t looking for love, and neither is Emma, especially not with him. His precocious nephew, though, and a retriever named Bandit, are about to change that.
So what if Emma Mercer is an overachiever? She has plans to get her doctorate in psychology and create a no-kill shelter for the EST dogs she trains. Which leaves absolutely no time for romance. She’s fine with a furry family—dogs don’t teach you to love and then rip your heart to shreds. But young Matty’s situation tugs at her heartstrings and there’s no way she can’t help him…and Jackson.
She may have hotter-than-ever chemistry with the soldier, but forgetting the past isn’t easy.
About the Author
My favorite part of writing is coming up with a story idea and then fleshing it out until there is a brand new world–-with characters that could be people you’d hang out with. Real issues, even in a fictional setting, need to resonate with the reader and I love mixing it all together. History with a romantic twist, add female guards and hot, sexy knights/nights :). An ancient curse? Even better! Or maybe you’d prefer sensual contemporary romance that takes place in a small town by the sea, where hearts are healed and love rekindled. Sand, sun and true love. Or how about the wild frontier of the Pacific Northwest? Gold mines, silver guns, emerald rivers. If young adult is more your style, I’ve got boys in trouble, girls in trouble, or a teenage scientific prodigy raised in a Wiccan environment who blames the full moon for her problems. When it comes right down to it, the characters are what drive the tale. They keep us up at night to read Just One More Page…
