For Shay Michaels, being the top stylist to St. Helena’s most elite and furriest residents is more than a job—it’s her calling. Which is why she turns her old Victorian into St. Paws Animal Rescue. But when a nosy neighbor claims that her mutts are disturbing the peace, she receives a visit from the uptight and oh so sexy sheriff who gives her thirty days to find her pets a new home. He also gives her a kiss that has her heart rolling over.

After a tragic investigation, Jonah Baudouin tried to escape his grief by returning to his sleepy hometown. Only he’s too busy handling neighborly disputes to find any kind of peace. Or maybe his problem is the wild-child next door, whose arrest record is as long as her lush legs. Now this fiery free spirit is turning his life upside down, and with his run for sheriff on the line, Jonah is surprised to discover that breaking the rules could be such a turn on.
