INTRODUCING…The Dogmothers – a brand new spinoff series by Roxanne St. Claire
Daniel Kilcannon, a widower with six unmarried kids, has not only orchestrated wonderfully happy endings for all his offspring…he’s found one of his own. That leaves his grown nieces and nephews plus his adult stepkids all in need of their own magical romances. Is The Dogfather too preoccupied with his new lady love to pull the strings and make the matches? Maybe. But never fear, fans, there’s a new team in town and these two might be polar opposites in life but they are lined up in love. One grandmother has the steel spine of a Greek warrior, the other has the heart of an Irish poet. Together, along with two darling dachshunds, these Dogmothers won’t stop until all nine of their grandchildren are hooked, hitched, and happy.
HOT UNDER THE COLLAR – Book One
Firefighter Braden Mahoney is devastated when his beloved Weimaraner, Jelly Bean, fails the canine arson investigator test. Faced with the challenge of raising the money for advanced training, it’s Braden’s sweet grandmother and her best friend who suggest he use the services of the new event planner in town. Not that he needs a push in Cassie Santorini’s direction. Ever since she arrived, Braden has had his eye on the sassy Greek goddess…and can’t stop thinking about getting the rest of him on her, too.
Cassie has spent years putting family first, even moving to Bitter Bark when her mother falls in love with the local veterinarian. Having a huge new extended “family” is fun, especially when one smokeshow of a firefighter attends the gatherings, but Cassie has no plans to remain in this small town. She’s ready to pursue her big city dreams. But when Braden asks for an assist for his precious pup, Cassie agrees to help him set up a town-wide scavenger hunt. It isn’t exactly a hardship to be around those blue eyes and brawny shoulders, especially since they both agree everything – even the undeniable sparks that crackle between them – is temporary.
But when temporary gets complicated by feelings that might lead to forever, Braden and Cassie start to question the direction they're headed. Should they follow their dreams…or their hearts? It’ll take a dog with a bad nose and a sweet soul, two particularly meddlesome grandmas, and some help from the clan that loves them to make sure Cassie and Braden follow the clues and find their way to each other’s arms.

You Had Me With Dogmothers!
You had me with Dogmothers! I absolutely loved the Dogfather series, and was anxious to see how the first in the new series would compare - I was thrilled!! Roxanne St Claire never fails to deliver. I loved, loved, loved it!
What’s broken hearted Braden to do when his beloved Jelly Bean fails the arson canine test? Enter the Dogmothers who are only too willing to pick up where the Dogfather left off. They suggest he reach out to Cassie to help in his efforts to raise money for advanced training for Jelly Bean. Braden is only too happy to, since he has strong feelings for her. While the feelings are mutual, will they be strong enough to stop Cassie from pursuing her dreams of moving to the big city and away from Bitter Bark.
Loved catching up on all the old friends that we have come to love in the Dogfather series. Can’t wait to see what the Dogmothers have in store in the rest of the series. Every book gets better and better. Highly recommend!
Dogmother series, Hot Under the Collar
Outstanding book, unfortunately, I want the next book in the series, now... Started out slower than the Dogfather books but once I became involved, it leaves one wanting the next book available immediately. Thanks for your hard work, and the selflessness to provide funds to the rescue of the fur kids so desperately in need.
