Massachusetts State Police Sgt. Nick Houston is as tough as they come, and he and his K-9, Saxon, are hot on the trail of a major illegal gun dealer. But his best lead—the beautiful owner of the Dog Park Café, Andi Hardt––is not cooperating. Doesn’t matter how sexy she is, or that his dog seems to be in love with her. She’s a suspect and he won’t cross that line. Ever.

Andi Hardt sank everything into her dream business—the Dog Park Café, a restaurant catering to dogs as much as people. Now everything is in jeopardy because of one extremely frustrating, incredibly hot state trooper. Like it or not, she’s in Nick’s crosshairs, and he’s calling the shots. Her only option: cooperate, or lose everything she’s worked so hard for.

Nick and Andi are catapulted straight into the danger zone, forcing them to make life-altering choices, and face their desires. Risking his life for Andi is the easy part. Risking his heart is the toughest assignment Nick will face.


“This book was freaking awesome.  It checked off all my boxes. Law enforcement/ military romantic suspense. Fantastic storyline. Great, well developed characters. Action-packed, with a side order of humor.” -Christina R., NetGalley

“An excellent romantic suspense! I loved this book from start to finish—as evidenced by the fact I read it in one-sitting. It was fast-paced, action-packed and deeply engaging, with characters who were flawed but likable and a storyline that kept me on the (metaphorical) edge-of my seat. Plus, DOGS. Gah, Stray and Saxon were scene-stealers in the best way.” -Beth C., Goodreads

“This is a fast-paced, suspenseful read. It pulls you in from the first page and keeps your attention until the last. The intriguing storyline keeps you on the edge of your seat and the adorable K-9's will win your heart. This is a great addition to the series!” -Shirly L., NetGalley

“I couldn’t wait to dive into the latest in this series! Strong characters, suspense and action, and, of course, four-legged friends, proved once again to be a winning combination!” -Kylie M., Goodreads

Edge of your seat action!” -Erika C., NetGalley
