After a passionless marriage under the scrutiny of
high society, Avery Stowe is taking back her life. All
she wants is a little privacy and a quiet place to
raise her autistic daughter, Hailey. Redwood Ridge,
Oregon, seems to offer all the right ingredients.
Except for the problem of the local sexy veterinarian.
The last thing she needs in her life is to fall for his
irresistible allure, even if he is a nice guy who keeps
doing her favors. But the well-meaning patrons of
her new hometown have other ideas, and it appears
playing Cupid is one of them. Cade O’Grady has never met a woman he couldn't
handle, but when Avery Stowe walks into his office
late one night cradling an injured puppy, he’s struck
stupid. Which might explain her total lack of
interest in him. But now that she’s working for his
family’s clinic, he doesn't have to lust from a
distance. He might just have a chance at convincing
Avery—and her too-guarded heart—that falling for
the right man isn't a mistake . . .
