It isn’t puppy love.

But when one night leads to babies on the way, is a forever family far behind?

Animal rescue director Rebekah Taylor isn’t a pet person—or the family type. But now she’s pregnant and a newbie parent to an adventure-loving stray dog nobody can catch. Kind of like Grant Whitaker, the fancy-free tech consultant who’s not your typical daddy-to-be. Except this dude’s sticking around. Can Grant persuade Rebekah to trust in him and the future they’ve started creating together?


It’s the super sweet setting of an animal shelter that steals your heart in this story! Rebekah has issues that hold her back from letting her life be filled with love and connections, and Grant seems willing to forgo all commitment and just have fun. The two of them together don’t seem like they would work, but they prove us wrong. A fun read!

Rebekah Taylor isn’t interested in love and all the fixings. She works hard to achieve her goals, which right now is enjoying the position she earned as the Director of an animal rescue run by two fun-loving elderly sisters. She isn’t a pet lover herself, but she’s happy to thrive at raising money to help them find a loving home. One stray pup is being elusive though … and only seems to be interested in the one person who doesn’t want to catch it … her!

Tech consultant Grant Whitaker makes it his calling to help out his aunts and their animal shelter. He makes the trip to North Carolina from his home in Florida fairly often, and can’t help but be intrigued by Rebekah. The one time they let down their guard down and enjoyed a night together left them about to be parents!

When opposites attract...

As an editor at a major New York City magazine, Josie Kellum is always on the go...until an injury sidelines her in the small town of Sweetwater Springs. Luckily, her new physical therapist is easy going and easy on the eyes. When their sessions start to heat up, in more ways than one, Josie is intrigued. But she has a city and career she loves waiting for her. So why does the thought of leaving him suddenly feel a lot like leaving home?

Tucker Locklear is just starting to move on after his wife's death. While he can't deny his attraction to the gorgeous, vivacious Josie, he won't risk the pain of losing someone again. The sooner he gets Josie back on her feet and back to her real life, the safer he'll be. But in Sweetwater Springs, love has a way of mending even the most damaged heart.


Small town life leads to a sweet romance! On this return visit to Sweetwater Springs, we reconnect with Kaitlyn and Mitch from the first book in the series as they interact with her best friend and the guy she seems to be falling for. The setting is peaceful and heartfelt with an emotionally rich plot. Really enjoying this series!

New York City magazine editor Josie Kellum has enjoyed visiting her best friend at the cozy little inn she runs in Sweetwater Springs, North Carolina but she’s raring to get home to her hectic city lifestyle. Fate has something else in store for her though when she’s sidelined by a minor injury and forced to stay in Sweetwater Springs for a little longer. It’s not all bad though … there’s a gorgeous man involved!

Physical therapist Tucker Locklear can’t deny that Josie wakes up a part of him that’s been dormant since his wife died a couple of years ago, but they’re all wrong for each other. She’s city, he’s country … she’s stressed, he’s laid back … and most importantly, he’s loved and lost before and been left heartbroken, so he’s not game to give it another go.
