I admit it. I’m obsessed with dogs. Not just my own, though my daughters swear I spoil Ginger more than I do them. (Probably a good thing!) I’m talking about dogs in books. Yep, every one of my books features a dog. Big dogs, little dogs, black and white dogs, dogs that go in…but I digress. LOL Having a pet in a book adds to the entertainment value. Let’s face it, dogs are funny and adorable. They can also be a pain when I forget about them for three chapters and have to go back to add mentions. In my new release, Every Move She Makes, my heroine’s golden retriever sticks her nose in at an inopportune moment…

Two seconds later, he had her flat on her back with the banana lying on a nearby rock. He cradled her head in his hands and kissed her. When she kissed him back, desire surged even stronger.

So much for the slow approach.

“Do you know how much I want you right now?"

She bit her lip. “I’m sorry. I wish I could say yes, but I can’t.”

“I know. Can we do this?”

He trailed kisses down the side of her neck, burying his nose against her skin. She smelled like fresh air and woman. His breath came fast as he moved back to cover her mouth with his, his tongue stroking until he wasn’t certain he could stop.

A cold nose thrust between them. At a blast of stinky dog breath, they separated in a hurry.

“My savior.” Rachel’s smile shook as she gave Daisy a shove.

So, do you enjoy pets in your books? If you’re an author, do you have your own unique obsessions? Let’s hear about them.
No matter where she goes, he knows her every move…

Long ago, Rachel Carpenter was a glamorous soap star. She gave it all up to move to Napa Valley with her daughters to open a bookstore near her family vineyard. Her life is safe and dependable, until she encounters Kane Lafferty at a wilderness camp in the rugged High Sierra. A burned-out police detective struggling with his own demons, Kane is instantly attracted to Rachel. And like Rachel, he isn’t sure if he’s ready to open his heart. But everything is about to change…

Someone is watching from the darkness. A fanatic obsessed with Rachel for years has decided to claim what he believes is his. It will be up to Kane to not only protect his new love and her family, but to uncover the identity of the stalker before it’s too late for all of them…
