An adoption coordinator for a greyhound rescue, Danielle Morrow guards her heart as vigilantly as her three dogs guard her home until she reconnects with her first love, former Marine Knox Donovan, who is doing his best to make up for breaking her heart
Broken hearts—man, woman, and dog—get a second chance at love, healing, and happiness under the warm Miami Beach sun in this endearing contemporary romance…
Danielle Morrow works tirelessly for a greyhound rescue helping retired racing dogs find their forever homes. She guards her heart as vigilantly as her two adopted greyhounds guard her. One heartbreak per lifetime is enough for any woman, and no one she’s met since her high school boyfriend dumped her to join the military has ever tempted her enough to risk love again.
Knox Donovan expected to be career military, but an injury and an honorable discharge leave him uncertain of his future. When his brothers ask him to come back to Miami Beach to help with their new condo conversion, he has no intention of staying on in the city that has so many bad memories for him.
Knox is reminded that not all his memories are bad when he sees Danielle again at the grand opening of the new Fur Haven Dog Park. Fifteen years haven’t softened the pain of their breakup. But Knox is different now, more hard-edged and suspicious, and when he bonds with the retired racing greyhound, Sarge, Danielle’s cool reserve begins to melt. Sarge needs special care after the injuries that ended his racing career, and it’s not long before Danielle realizes that Knox does too—they can give each other one more chance at the love and friendship they deserve. But can Danielle trust her heart to the only man who’s ever broken it?
