“Vivid and charming.”—CHARLAINE HARRIS, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series
Injured in the line of duty,
His orders are simple:
But when a frightened woman bursts into his life, Hugh and his K9 companion have no choice but to risk everything to keep her safe.
The sole witness to a horrific crime, Kaylee Ramay flees to the Colorado Rockies to start a new life. There she becomes Grace, a dog kennel employee desperately trying to avoid attention—especially from dangerously attractive K9 Officer Hugh Murdoch.
Because Hugh is tall, dark…and nothing but trouble.
Hugh is anxious to get back in the field after an act of heroism left him warming the bench.
Until then, he and his K9 partner Lexi spend their hours teasing the town’s mysterious newcomer. But when their simmering attraction is nearly cut short by a sniper’s bullet, Hugh’s mystery woman must come clean about the secrets she keeps…
Or both of them will pay the price.

What People Are Saying:
“I love Ruggle’s characters. They’re sharply drawn, and vividly alive. I’m happy when they find each other. These are wonderful escapist books.”—CHARLAINE HARRIS, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series
"Sexy and suspenseful, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough."—JULIE ANN WALKER, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author for Hold Your Breath
"Chills and thrills and a sexy slow-burning romance from a terrific new voice."—D.D. AYRES, author of the K-9 Rescue Series for Hold Your Breath
Ruggle's second Rocky Mountain K9 Unit contemporary romantic thriller (after Run to Ground) is filled with a delectable blend of lovable characters, suspense, and romance. When Kaylee met Noah, she thought he was the perfect prince to complete her perfect life, but upon meeting his family, she found three men being held captive in his uncle's basement. After trying to rescue them, she needed to disappear for her own safety. Now she's Grace, living in the tourist town of Monroe, Colo., sharing a one-bathroom house with a young woman named Jules who's raising her five siblings. Grace has no idea when she'll be able to return to the life she struggled to build. Enter Hugh, a charming scamp of a police officer paired with a narcotics detection dog named Lexi. Hugh is out on medical leave, but both he and Lexi are eager to return to duty. Grace easily captures Hugh's attention: she matches his sass and gives as good as she gets. However, both of them have secrets and enemies determined to see them silenced. Realistic characters who are fragile and heroic in equal measure mix with just the right amount of humor and tension to create a delicious cocktail.
