Publisher Description

Jackson Holt and I have a mutual problem, with an obvious solution. A fake relationship is the perfect way for both of us to get what we want.

The sinfully handsome new veterinarian in Dogwood Cove needs to show his boss he’s settling down and here to stay so that he can secure his partnership. I need to get my family and friends off my back so I can focus on my busy bakery, and open my new cafe.

Pretending to date each other is no hardship, and the answer to our problems. Two birds, one little white lie of a stone.

The challenge will be avoiding the very real feelings neither of us see coming.

Rumours and Romance is the perfect fake relationship that leads to real love. For fans of steamy small town love stories, with a couple who choose to be child-free, adorable animals, found family friend groups, low angst and high heat romance with a guaranteed HEA. This is the second story in the Dogwood Cove series and can be read as a standalone, although the series is best enjoyed if read in order.

Fake dating done oh so right!

One of favorite tropes brought to the small town of Dogwood Cove. The town where there’s not near enough eligible bachelors for Mila to even begin to look beyond her bakery & expansion cafe. She’s worked hard to get to where she’s at, & she wants to honor the memory of her mother. But with her friends & brother constantly on her back about her workaholic tendencies, something has to give! Enter stage right, sexy new town veterinarian, Jackson Holt.

When Milo, Mila’s new charge & a stray, needs some medical attention, Mila trip to the vet is slotted on the new doctor’s schedule. As these two work together to help heal Milo, they find themselves quickly becoming easy friends. But Jackson has a past he wants to escape, & he finds that Dogwood Cove might be the perfect place for that! But is a job enough to keep him in town for the long haul?

As circumstances occur, this duo strikes a deal of fake dating that is beneficial to both parties. But when lines get crossed, boundaries become blurred and limits have to be set. And watching these two flub around each other as feelings grow deeper was hot and sweet all at the same time.

Audiobook Review:
Heather Firth & Neill Thorne were both new to me narrators, I believe. They both did an excellent job of drawing me in to the story & the emotions of their respective characters.
