Stubborn Love

Jim Donovan. A patient man, he can outwait a slow-foaling mare and survive camping out with a dozen fifth-grade boys. Self-control hides the warrior persona he’s chosen to set aside. But when a stalker targets the woman he wants, and his new partner comes on to her, Jim’s patience runs out. How much of a saint can an ex-black-ops Marine be?
Sally Johnston has been on her own since her husband’s death and is used to taking care of herself. She intends to ignore the anonymous messages she’s getting and doesn’t want or need anyone’s protection. But every time she turns around Jim is there, keeping her safe, yes—but also driving her crazy.
Just being near him stokes Sally’s desire, but will she let him thaw her frozen heart?

About the Book

Sally Johnston is one busy lady. She manages an animal shelter, is completing her college degree, and is raising her eight-year-old son alone. The last thing she needs is more complications. But the “encouraging” notes she’s been receiving have turned nasty, and her friend Jim Donovan claims she needs protection, and his love.

Sally’s not so sure. She’s ignored anonymous notes before, and as for getting closer to Jim, it’s out of the question. She can’t risk losing her heart again—the pain when her first husband died was nearly unbearable. And she has her son to think of.

Her attraction to Jim must simply be hormones. 

That she can deal with. There’s a new partner in Jim’s veterinary practice—Daniel Smith, a hot young kid with a shiny new DVM degree. Daniel’s made his interest in Sally clear, and he might be just what her overactive libido needs…

Jim doesn’t fear Sally’s stalker or Daniel’s competition. The danger, as he sees it, is beautiful Sally’s stubborn mind.

I was fascinated by the intertwining of cozy mystery with a hot, hot, hot romance, and impressed by her knowledge of dogs and Black Ops, (What sort of secret life has Susan been leading?) Nice pacing too, and the story read like it had just flowed out of her pen. ❤
