"Ayres’ K-9 Rescue series keeps getting better, and her fourth installment is the best yet." - Romantic Times

“Bold and risky…a story of understanding, unconditional acceptance and tender love to be celebrated.  Equally compelling is the suspense of danger and the chase expertly added as a great complement to bring the heroic deeds to the forefront.  Ayres has written another hit for us to devour.” -USA Today 

DESIRE IS A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH

When it comes to training K-9 patrol dogs, Yardley Summers always trusts her instincts. But when it comes to dating men, she keeps her heart on a very short leash. Mostly, she's too busy with her four-legged trainees at Harmony Kennels to commit to a relationship. Only two men have managed to distract her: a handsome Doctor Without Borders physician who's suddenly gone missing--and the red-hot dog trainer from her past who's suddenly back in her life…

Now a K-9 rescue team leader, Kye McGarren has never forgotten the days he trained at Yardley's camp--or the nights he spent in her arms. When he hears that Yardley is on a mission to find the missing doctor, Kye is determined to keep her out of danger. With his K-9 partner by his side, he joins Yardley on a death-defying mission--one that reignites their mutual passion. Will Kye be able to rescue his romantic rival…without losing the woman he loves?

There was more to this story than just the K-9s but they were definitely central to the plot. Kye and Yardley’s history was a surprise and very emotional. I loved their backstory and both are perfect for each other because they are polar opposites in disposition. With Yardley’s strong Alpha personality, it works. Their romance was rocky and definitely unconventional, keeping me off balance.

 

The mystery and suspense was strong with an exciting climax. It’s one of the best in the series to date and I’m very happy that the stories continue to stay true to the focus of the series." -
