When it comes to caring for the furry residents of St. Helena, California, groomer and pet rescuer Shay Michaels can handle anything. Humans are another story, though especially Deputy Jonah Baudouin. He s the town s resident superhero: upright, uptight, and jaw-droppingly gorgeous, even when he s investigating complaints about Shay s beloved foster animals. And that spells danger for Shay, a free spirit who can t risk trusting the wrong person again.

Jonah and Shay have been circling each other ever since she came to town, and he s running out of reasons to "not" kiss her senseless. But this deputy is a straight shooter with his eye on the sheriff's badge. He can t afford to get involved with Shay, a chaos magnet with luscious curves who s liable to turn his career and his life upside down. He enforces laws. She breaks them repeatedly. Keeping her out of trouble is becoming a full-time job and it s one he hopes is never going to end.

Shay is the St. Francis of Assisi of St Helena, the patron saint of animals. She rescues animals and tends to them until they find their "fur-ever" home. Quite the opposite of Shay as she grew up in foster homes- and those where not very good memories. Her story is tough, having lost both her parents to a drug bust gone bad, she ends up in a foster home where she is taunted and teased by her foster brothers. If that wasn't enough she fell on some hard times after being swindled by her ex. She is a survivor. Shay sways a bit on wrong verses right side of the law, the lines get muddy a few times; she has a big heart and that is what guides her. So she has had a run in with the law, having sexy neighbor "Sheriff" Jonah  there to serve and protect is enough for anyone to bend the rules. (sic) They tip toe around each other to the point where they are ready to combust.  Jonah is by the book but can Shay teach him to have fun, love life and be a "cat" person? Can Jonah teach Shay to trust a human as much as she trusts her animals? Their romance is like cat and mouse, it leads to some funny scenes and some tear jerking one. I encourage you all to pick up this one by Marina. She is an auto buy for me. She writes from the heart, this one has to pull your heart strings.. seeing the animals find their family is a joy... i would have loved to learn more about Goldilocks..maybe she can be a featured character in an upcoming book.  Can't wait to see the rest of what's in store for St Helena's residences.

My favorite pet is my darling Yorkie, Maggie. She is the child who is still at home after raising six of the human kind who are now out on their own. Maggie is so much fun and a lot less work than the human children! :-) Thanks for the interesting question. jdh2690@gmail.com
