Love runs wild at the Sagebrush Flats Zoo,
where a motley crew of big-hearted animals
helps the most unlikely couples find love.
When Katie Underwood discovers a litter of newborn cougar cubs, the last person she expects to come to the rescue is her former crush—and high school nemesis—Bowie Wilson. The worst part? He doesn’t seem to remember the trouble he caused her.
As a single father and owner of a cash-strapped zoo, Bowie struggles to balance budgets while raising his pre-teen daughter and a host of rascally animals. He considers himself lucky when Katie agrees to lend her talents to a publicity campaign in support of the zoo’s animal rehabilitation programs—until he learns just what she’s planning…
This time, Katie is determined to resist Bowie’s charm. But a lovelorn camel, a matchmaking honey badger, and a nursemaid capybara have different plans. Can they and the rest of the zoo’s menagerie help Bowie break through the barriers surrounding Katie’s heart?
Love can’t be tamed…
Where the Wild Hearts Are series:
Wild On My Mind (Book 1)
Kerr's outstanding debut contemporary adds an element heretofore missing from romance novels: narration by a wiley, interfering honey badger. All Fluffy wants is for the Black-Haired One (aka zoo owner and single dad Bowie Wilson) to partner with the female biped (aka home-for-the-summer marketing professional Katie Underwood) and make babies. Naturally, the bipeds have more complicated lives than a yenta honey badger, and they do their best to push back against Fluffy, Katie's matchmaking mom, and their own screaming hormones. Back in their high school days, Bowie did his cruel adolescent best to make Katie's life miserable because she wasn't as pretty or popular as his girlfriend. Katie bears the scars to this day, and at 29, she is positive she wants nothing to do with him. However, when she shows up with a litter of abandoned cougar cubs and volunteers to help feed them, nature runs its inevitable course. This hilarious story is sure to delight both Fluffy and contemporary romance fans.
