Debbie Burns's beloved Rescue Me series features contemporary romances where loves comes to the rescue. An Amazon Best Book of the Month!
Vet school drop-out Tess Grasso dreams of having her own pet therapy business, but she meets one disastrous obstacle after another. There's no denying she has a way with animals, so in the meantime she puts her skills to use at a local no-kill shelter. Between helping to rescue her furry companions and a budding relationship with fellow dog lover Mason Redding, Tess begins to find fresh confidence…
What Tess doesn't know is that Mason is recovering from an accident, hoping to get back to his pro-baseball career. He's afraid the truth will ruin everything-and he's right. But in the midst of hurt and betrayal, a free-spirited stray Husky enters their lives, and teaches them a few things about faith, forever love, and forgiveness.
The touching third Rescue Me contemporary (after A New Leash on Love) unites two animal lovers from very different walks of life. Tess Grasso is back home in St. Louis after a backpacking tour of Europe. She's eager to embark on her chosen career as a holistic animal therapist, but progress is slow. On her way home from yet another rejection by a potential client, she's caught in a driving rainstorm. Nonetheless, she can't resist retrieving an impish Westie who's evading a man helplessly holding the dog's empty leash. Tess has no idea the man is Mason Redding, the St. Louis Red Birds' famous third baseman and one of the city's most eligible bachelors. He prefers it that way, since he doesn't like being chased for his fame. Their instant mutual attraction leads into a tender love story. This isn't the best in the series, but chapters from a stray husky mix's point of view improve it and will win the hearts of animal fanciers.
