These adorable service puppies
are matchmakers in the making…
Dawn Vasquez never takes life too seriously. But when she rescues a golden retriever named Gigi, Dawn begins to imagine what it'd be like to settle down and let someone rely on her for a change. Unfortunately, Adam Dearborn—a handsome, hopelessly buttoned-up cattle rancher in need of a guide dog—has also fallen in love with the little ball of fluff and stubbornly insists that no other animal will do.
Adam isn't sure what drives him to fight to keep Gigi for himself, but he suspects it has something to do with his growing—and unfortunate—attachment to Dawn. Her whirlwind spirit and sunny disposition might make her a delight to be around, but they also make her unsuited for the difficult life of a rancher. He should be able to put her out of his head. But what's a love-struck cowboy to do when what he wants and what he needs have never seemed so far apart? And can he allow himself to take a chance on everything Dawn has to offer: puppy kisses, puppy love...and her.
Service Puppies Series:
Puppy Love (Book 1)

Puppy Kisses (Book 3)
The effervescent third romance in Gilmore's Forever Home series (after Puppy Christmas) pairs a reserved blind rancher with a happy-go-lucky sighted dog trainer. Dawn Vasquez has a reputation for being flighty and flirtatious, but after witnessing her sisters,with whom she owns a service-dog training business, settle down, she longs for a happy ever after of her own. After liberating a puppy from an abusive owner with her friend Zeke Dearborn, Dawn lies her way out of trouble with the law by claiming the puppy is Zeke's brother Adam's new guide dog. Adam, the blind rancher, and Dawn have been hooking up since they first met, but beyond the hot sex and their love of riling each other up, they're both unsure of where they stand. To get back at Dawn for using him as an excuse, Adam claims he really does want to keep the puppy as a service dog though he has no trouble getting around his sprawling ranch on his own. Sparring over the pup's ownership leads Adam to fall hard for the dog and realize he's in love with Dawn. But he's afraid she'll never commit to a monogamous relationship. Gilmore's peppy prose and skillful scene-setting unite into an unputdownable tale. This sensitive contemporary is a tail-wagging treat.
