Publisher Comments:

"Donovan's blend of romance and mystery is thrilling."--Booklist

Emma laughed then, relieved to let go of some of her nervousness, some of her pent-up agitation. Then she watched as very slowly-very deliberately-Thomas smiled at her.

It was a deadly weapon, that smile of his, and she wondered if he was aware of its firepower. The smile hovered there, bracketed by deep masculine dimples, sexy and sweet, and it silently laid to waste her well-thought-out campaign of avoidance. Every objection she'd had, every perfectly logical reason she had given herself for forgetting that she'd ever met this man now lay bleeding at her feet.

A smile like that could not possibly lie. Could it?

"God, Thomas. I can't believe you came to my house. Why did you come to my house?"

He gave his brawny shoulders a shrug and looked up from under a thick fringe of dark honey lashes. "I figured my best shot was to surprise you, you know, just kind of show up on your doorstep."

...if the right man ever showed up on her doorstep, she'd know him in an instant...

"No way in hell," Emma whispered.

"Hilarious...full of sass and sizzle." -Julie Ortolon, USA Today bestselling author

Synopsis:

They've Got Nothing In Common...

For animal behaviorist Emma Jenkins, romance has been at the bottom of her daily "to do" list since making it through a messy divorce. But everything changes the day six-feet-of-gorgeous Thomas Tobin walks into her office with a quivering Chinese Crested named Hairy, a canine that looks more like an underfed rodent than a dog. Sure Thomas is sending her mixed signals-but that charming smile just sent Emma's dormant sex drive through the roof...

But Animal Attraction-

Thomas isn't looking for a fling. In fact, he wants nothing to do with women. He just wants to know if Hairy witnessed his owner's murder. But something tells him that asking Emma to help him with the case will spell nothing but trouble-trouble in the form of serious temptation.

And the Willingness To Take A Chance On Love

Thomas knows that relying on Emma's expertise-and her soft touch with a weird dog that has somehow become his-may be a crazy way to track a killer. Especially when Emma's down-home warmth makes him want to believe that anything is possible-even true love.
