"Incredible! You’ll be on the edge of your seat to see if the heroine can make it out alive."—Catherine Coulter, New York Times bestselling author on Irresistible Force
The only thing more powerful than fear is desire…
A seasoned K-9 officer with the police in Maryland, Cole Jamison has left her old life behind her. With a new home and a new partner—a protective canine named Hugo—Cole is ready for fresh challenges. A crucial position on an important drug task force is exactly what she wants…until she discovers her gorgeous, infuriating ex-husband will be the DEA agent in charge. FORCE OF ATTRACTIONAgent Scott Lucca may be a pro when it comes to undercover assignments, but this job is daunting even for him. Posing as a happy couple on the dog competition circuit means he and Cole need to get a lot closer than they’ve been in years. Playing a live-in couple should seem like a walk in the park compared to tracking a brutal criminal, but suddenly nothing could be more dangerous than the passionate fire they’ve rekindled...
Undercover assignments can play havoc with personal lives. Just ask Officer Scott Lucca. His marriage broke up right after his last assignment went to hell, and it's taken him years to get back to some semblance of normal life. In this action-packed and romantic second K-9 Rescue adventure (after Irresistible Force), Ayres introduces dastardly smugglers who surgically implant packets of drugs into puppies in order to cross state borders. Scott and his SWAT dog, Izzy, can't take down the operation without a cover story. Unfortunately, their ideal partners are Scott's ex-wife, Cole, and her new K-9, Hugo, a 95-pound Bouvier des Flandres. While play-acting a couple in the first bloom of love, Scott and Cole find that the longer the case goes on, the more confused their feelings get. Heavy-duty sensuality and solidly researched K-9 operations are hallmarks of this appealing series and will delight fans of smart dogs, exciting action, and steamy romance.
