Rich with passion, compassion and a touch of suspense, it’s the perfect book for a relaxing long weekend or getaway.
Charity Tiernan has a thriving veterinary practice in Shelter Bay, volunteers around town and has her own “no-kill” shelter. But a bleeding heart doesn’t mean she’s wishy-washy. Charity knows who she is and what she wants. That is, until Gabriel St. James comes to town. She’s not ready for a relationship but maybe an affair with the sexy photojournalist would suit her. Gabriel is an ex-Marine who’s known for his Pulitzer-winning war photographs, but he’s come to Shelter Bay to photograph a wedding. Unexpected events literally lead him right to Charity’s door and from that moment on he’s hooked. Will Charity be the woman who can finally provide him with the roots he’s looking for?
