Sometimes giving in is the win…
Helping people is Gabe Bryson's calling in life. Exchanging combat boots for a sheriff's badge is as natural to the former Navy SEAL as breathing air. Rules and regulations, law and order are all in his wheelhouse. So to find himself attracted to a beautiful, exasperating animal activist who thinks rules are made to be broken, drives him nuts.
Helping animals is Lyndsey Heston's calling in life. The veterinary technician/animal foster mom doesn't have time for a boyfriend or dating or her unwanted attraction to the handsome new sheriff. He's too buttoned up; too by-the-rules; too much like her father—a former sheriff; and definitely too darn hot for her own good.
After a particularly bad day, she finds herself sharing drinks—and a whole lot more—with the sexy sheriff whose kindness takes her by surprise. Soon compassion turns to passion and they both agree it's just one night and they can go back to disliking each other in the morning.
Even though their 'just one night' turns into several, Gabe is certain he's got a handle on the situation, until Lyndsey breaks up a dog fight ring and acquires a bullseye on her pretty head. The SEAL turned sheriff realizes there's no rule or regulation he won't break to keep her safe.
