Love in Fur Coats


Congratulations to "Jonetta", the winner in Roxanne's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

Over the past twenty five years, our family has been home to six cats, four dogs, five birds, several hamsters, and fish too numerous to count. We’ve also fostered several kittens and the cutest little Tasmanian devil of a Pomeranian puppy, too. There was a point during which we had five cats and three dogs at the same time and I discovered that even I have a leg-limit!

We’re big supporters of our local animal shelter and many of our pets were homeless before they came to us. In fact, our dog Molly, who passed away many years ago, was a retired racing greyhound, who we found through a greyhound rescue organization. A lovely, sweet-tempered creature, Molly opened our eyes to the particular joys and challenges of kennel-raised dogs, bred and trained for a single purpose. http://www.greyhoundpets.org/


In my latest release, RESISTING THE RANCHER, my heroine Celia Granger is unable to turn away from any animal in need. Fortunately, as a veterinarian, she’s got the tools to save them. She and Jonah Clarke, the hero of my story and Celia’s childhood crush, get reacquainted over an injured dog Jonah finds in the alley behind his law office. Could you resist a guy willing to ruin his suit by helping a filthy dog lying in a trash heap? I couldn’t. (My own guy is a lot like Jonah, as it happens!) Celia couldn’t either!

I hope you enjoy Jonah and Celia’s story.

  1. My last dog was through the Humane Society. It was love at first sight. They had described him as a poodle/miniature schnauzer mix. Turns out he was a Bichon with a tad of the Schnauzer. He was adorable and I still miss him.

    1. He sounds like a great mix! They're all leave a unique mark on our hearts, don't they?

  2. I used to live in the country where there were way too many dogs and not enough people wanting them. One pup in a litter just stole my heart. He was suppose to be Australian Shepard which he was - in part. He was a Pointer/Shepard cross. The Pointer part was identified when he pointed at pheasants for us.

    1. Cool! Isn't it neat when you see those breed-specific talents come out? I'd love to see a Pointer at work.

  4. My dogs were purebread Shelties. High in demand, I loved them both, but they both passed away. Now we have 3 cats from a rescue shelter. It has been very satidfying to save these cats.

    1. Hey shy one, good to see you! And what a coy answer - inquiring minds want to know the stories! ;)

  6. Even though we lost our 17 yr. old kittyboy, Curry, about two years ago, he still owns a part of my (and my family's) heart. He was a rescue and the original scaredy cat. But he needed us and we needed him.
