Passion is always worth fighting for…
Jori Garrison trains dogs for Warrior Wolf Pack, which provides service animals for disabled veterans. Four years ago, she was wrongly convicted of a crime—thanks to her no-good ex-fiancé. Now she just wants to live her life in peace with her beloved dogs. No men, no complications. But it’s hard to play it cool when a lethally hot male is on her tail—and the attraction is fierce, mutual, and dangerous…
Lauray "Law" Batisse is a Military Police veteran who was wounded in Afghanistan. Haunted by the loss of his K-9 partner in combat, he’s reluctant to accept a service dog named Samantha into his life. But once he meets her trainer—the gorgeous Jori Garrison—he can’t fight his primal instincts. And neither can Jori. This sexy alpha male might be the only man strong enough to unleash her desires. And when unseen enemies start hunting them down, he and his new K-9 partner might be her only hope… to survive.
Becker glanced again at Sam, dozing in the alcove beneath Law’s desk. “What the hell kind of dog is that?”
“A doodle. She’s on the job.”
“You’re shitting me? I mean, honest to God, the least they could do is give you a decent dog. Looks like that one couldn’t protect you from a rash.
Law reached for his wallet and pulled out a twenty. He called Sam to his side and tucked the money in a pocket of Sam’s service dog vest, wrapped saddle-like around her middle. He looked up at Becker. “You can have that twenty if you can get it from Sam.”
“You’re joking, right?”
“Law shrugged. “You asked what she does. Let’s find out.” Becker hitched up his pants and snorted. “You know I work a bit with dogs?” He gave Sam a bright smile, his voice rising and excited, the way K-9 officers speak to their canines. “How you doing there, girlie? Here sweetheart. Show Papa what you got there in your fancy little vest pocket.”
He reached toward the vest but Sam blocked him with her big head. When he shortened his reach, as if to pet her, Sam again blocked him with another sharp jerk of her head.
Becker spied three doggy treats lined up on Law’s desk and grabbed a couple. “Come on now, you little bitch. Come get a treat from your new buddy.” He opened his palm flat, revealing the nuggets.
Sam’s gaze went from Becker to Law. Law made a slight negative move with his head.
With her head turned away, Becker made a grab for the vest. Sam quickly back-stepped, dropped her head, and growled low in her throat. The sound that emerged was deeper and more menacing than expected from so harmless-looking a dog.
