Daniel Kilcannon is known as “The Dogfather” for a reason. It’s not just his renowned skills as a veterinarian, his tremendous love of dogs, or the fact that he has turned his homestead in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains into a world class dog training and rescue facility. Ask his six grown children who run Waterford Farm for him, and they’ll tell you that their father’s nickname is due to his uncanny ability to pull a few strings to get what he wants. And what he wants is for his four sons and two daughters to find the kind of life-changing love he had with his dearly departed wife, Annie. This old dog has a few new tricks…and he’ll use them all to see his pack all settled into their happily ever afters…one by one.
SIT…STAY…BEG - Available Now!
Garrett Kilcannon, a former dot com super-success who now devotes his life to rescuing dogs and finding them homes, prefers to keep his secrets buried as deep as a dog hides his bone. So when he learns his father has invited a journalist to Waterford Farm to write and produce an in-depth profile on him, he doesn’t care that she’s a childhood friend or drop dead gorgeous. He has zero tolerance for the media…until he sees a different side when she gets through the walls of a rescue dog who’s refused to eat during her short stay at Waterford. Unwillingly charmed and undeniably attracted, Garrett agrees to the interview that could break down a few of his emotional walls, too.
Garrett might not want to share the story of his colorful former life, but Jessie Curtis has the skills to peel back the layers of this sexy, complicated, caring dog rescuer. In the process, she not only discovers his secrets, she finds herself falling for a man who touches her heart in a way she never thought possible. Her entire career is riding on this one explosive interview, but can she bear to repay Garrett’s trust by selling his secrets? Or can a woman who gave up on happiness a long time ago learn to believe that all it takes to rescue a lost heart is the love of a good man? (And a great dog!)
NEW LEASH ON LIFE – Available May 19, 2017
Former attorney and current dog whisperer Shane Kilcannon doesn’t like to lose. At anything. So when he messes up his chance with a beautiful stranger whose confident smile and haunted eyes intrigue him more than any woman he's ever met, he’s ready to snarl like one of his beloved pit bulls. But Shane's work with the wildest and wariest of his family's rescue dogs has taught him patience and persistence. When his father asks him to work alongside Chloe, helping to convince the locals to support her groundbreaking tourism plans, he agrees…as long as she is willing to help him by giving a temporary home to one misunderstood dog.
Chloe Somerset has built a reputation in the tourism industry as someone with big ideas that put little places on the map, and she’s confident she can do the same for Bitter Bark, North Carolina. All she has to do is convince one small town to change its name, open her germophobic heart to a dog with a penchant for face-licking, and avoid the landmines of local politics when her plans divide the townspeople. But none of that is as scary as the feeling of falling hard for a handsome charmer who whispers all the right things and tempts Chloe to forget a lifetime of hard lessons. Shane might be the best trainer in the family, with an instinct for how to get through to the creatures who need care the most, but he's met his match with Chloe, and it'll take every trick he knows to teach her to fall in love.
LEADER OF THE PACK – Coming Summer, 2017
Very few things ruffle law enforcement dog training specialist Liam Kilcannon. Stoic and steady, he has the patience and skill to transform a harmless puppy into a protective K-9, and the quiet strength to lead his five younger siblings through the storms of life. He’s a former Marine who doesn’t waste words or squander emotions, and he’s also a man who very much wanted to spend his life with one special woman by his side. He found her… and lost her. And won’t ever let himself be hurt by her again.
Architect and single mom Andi Rivers knows she made a big mistake when she let Liam slip through her fingers two years ago. Like every decision she’s made for the past six years, Andi chose what she thought was best for her young son, and has vowed to stay single and unattached no matter how long and lonely her nights might be. But when Liam’s father learns Andi’s house has been broken into, he suggests she take Jag, a German shepherd watchdog Liam has been training. Andi sees the sense of getting a protection dog, especially when a few strange incidents put her on high alert.
But having Liam’s specially trained dog puts her in close and constant contact with a man who is a sexy reminder that she’s been sleeping by herself for far too long. Jag might be able to protect her home and family, but what will protect their hearts when Andi and Liam risk falling in love one more time?
