He didn’t feel at home anywhere…except with her

Fifteen years ago, Erin crushed Burke Daniels by choosing his brother over him. Now, after being left at the altar by his fiancée, Burke’s back in Findlay Roads trying to put his life back together—and falling for his now-widowed sister-in-law all over again.

He skipped town when Erin broke his heart. But after bonding with her son—his nephew—and realizing he still loves her, Burke doesn’t know how he can ever leave Erin again. Even if she tells him he has to…


An emotional journey of loss and how to move forward afterwards. Erin and Burke nabbed my attention quickly. I felt for both of them for how their story of the past played out. She was went one way in her life while he went another and now that they have a possibility of a future in front of them again, it’s hard for her to rectify the choices she made previously into a decision for her current future. She made it a little difficult to like her because she was so rigid, but his devotion to how he felt for all of these years even softened the edges of her prickliness. I really enjoyed their story!

Burke Daniels isn’t sure what he should be feeling right now considering his fiancee just left him standing at the altar, but relief probably isn’t part of it! He left Findlay Roads fifteen years ago with a broken heart, and now here he is living there again and at the point of starting over.

Erin Daniels might have chosen his brother over him all those years ago, but she never said she didn’t have feelings for him. And after losing his brother a couple of years ago, she’s trying to pick up the pieces and carry on for the sake of their son. Having Burke back on the scene is bittersweet. She can still see the man she fell for all those years ago, and she also sees the mature man he’s become who is bringing her son out of his lonely shell more than she’s seen since his father died. They say you can’t go back again … but is it possible to start fresh regardless of the past between them?

He's always been a haven:
For the lost. The sick. The injured.
But when a hunted woman takes shelter in his arms, this gentle giant swears he'll do more than heal her battered spirit—he'll defend her with his life.

K9 Officer Otto Gunnersen always had a soft spot for anyone in need. As Monroe's very own Dr. Doolittle, he dedicates himself to rehabilitating the injured souls that cross his path—but for all his big heart, he's never been in love.

Until he meets Sarah Clifton's haunted eyes. Until he realizes he'll do anything to save her.

All Sarah wants is to escape a life caught between ambitious crime families, but there's no outrunning her past. Her power-mad brother would hunt her to the ends of the earth...but he'd never expect Sarah to fight back. With Otto and the whole of Monroe, Colorado by her side, Sarah's finally ready to face whatever comes her way.

It's time to take a stand.


An exciting addition to the Rocky Mountain K-9 Unit series! You’ll see several familiar faces in this story if you’ve been reading this series by Katie Ruggle. The extended characters are a fun group of colleagues and friends who have formed their own little family of wayward souls who they will protect no matter what. When we first see Otto and Sarah together, we know there’s going to be something there because he’s treating her differently than he ever has anyone previously. It’s a fun connection to watch develop. It was a little rushed because danger arrived quickly in their relationship, but it was an enjoyable read!

K-9 Officer Otto Gunnersen loves his little piece of heaven in small town Monroe, Colorado. He has a great group of friends, a job he loves, and he’s as content as he’s ever been in life … and then he lays eyes on the new woman in town and realizes all that he’s been missing! He’d do anything to make her his, and will lay down his life to keep her safe when danger comes knocking!

Sarah Clifton would be thrilled if the simple things in life that she’s enjoying here in Monroe could become a reality for her, but her past is chasing at her heels faster than she can turn around. All that she wants is to get away from her crime family and the feuding life they constantly lead … but is thinking a future could ever include a bit of happiness too much to ask?
