Damaged hearts—man, woman, and dog—have a second chance for love, healing and happiness under the warm Miami Beach sun in this endearing contemporary romance...
Danielle Morrow works tirelessly for the greyhound rescue as an adoption coordinator, rehabilitating retired racing dogs and helping them find forever homes. She guards her heart as vigilantly as her two adopted greyhounds guard her home. One heartbreak per lifetime is enough for any woman, and no one she's met since her high school boyfriend dumped her to join the military has ever tempted her enough to risk love again.
Knox Donovan expected to be career military, but an injury has resulted in an honorable discharge that leaves him uncertain of his future. When his brothers ask him to come back to Miami Beach to help manage their new condo conversion, he figures he can at least advise them about security systems before declining the job. He has no intention of staying in the city that has so many bad memories for him.
Knox is reminded that not all his memories of growing up in Miami Beach are bad when he sees Danielle again at the Grand Opening of the new Fur Haven Dog Park. Fifteen years haven't softened the pain of their breakup. But Knox is different now, more hard-edged and suspicious, and when he bonds with the retired racing greyhound, Sarge, Danielle's cool reserve begins to melt. Sarge needs special care after the injuries that ended his racing career, and it's not long before Danielle realizes that Knox does too. Can Danielle trust her heart to the one man who's ever broken it?

Wells returns to South Florida in the charming third Fur Haven Dog Park romance (after A Tail for Two). Danielle Morrow once dreamed of being a veterinarian, but has settled for assisting her father in his veterinary practice while running Homestretch, a greyhound rescue group. Her world is shaken when her high school sweetheart, Knox Donovan, returns to Miami Beach after suffering an career-ending injury in the Marine Corps. Fifteen years ago, teenagers Knox and Danielle were expecting a baby but split after Danielle had a miscarriage. Now Knox is floundering trying to figure out his next career move. But when Danielle reenters his life, they find a way forward together until painful secrets from the past are revealed. Wells capably mixes heart and humor as she paves a road to happily-ever-after for her endearing heroine and hero, underpinning their love story with an engaging cast, including the couples who starred in the previous installments and a litter of adorable, scene-stealing puppies. This is sure to please.
