Publisher Description

** New York Times & USA TODAY bestselling author **

Abigail Apple is running late to meet her blind date when she’s pulled over for speeding. Unfortunately, the follow-the-rules cop doesn’t care that she’s late, let alone that she’s heartbroken because her favorite dog rescue is in danger of being closed. Now she has to meet her date with mud drying on her heels, dog hair covering her dress, and the smell of a barn perfuming her hair. When she arrives, however, Abigail learns her handsome blind date is none other than the cop who pulled her over. 


Abigail has no intention of staying until she learns Cooper Hill is heading a committee for the city that will award a six-figure donation to a charity of their choice. So, what’s a girl to do? Abigail decides a second date is the perfect way to convince Cooper to vote for the dog rescue. Soon, however, Abigail is less interested in Cooper’s vote than she is in his deep voice, kind heart, and tender touch. 


Will this follow-the-rules cop and this follows-her-heart animal lover learn that despite poor first impressions, second chances can lead to love?

What do you get when you mix a stern, by-the-book cop and a footloose dog lover? A wonderfully perfect story... especially because dogs and puppies are involved. Cooper and Abigail have a real rocky beginning and unfortunately seems to be the theme of their relationship. Yet it’s that very push and pull of their time getting acquainted that leads to some funny and awkward moments. Warning. When you finish reading, you may have a strong urge to adopt a dog.
