The most romantic place she never wanted to be . . . 

Pepper Knight moved to Everland, Georgia, as step one in her plan for a successful legal career. But after this big-city gal's plans go awry, going home with her tail between her legs isn't an option. So when the town vet-and her sexy new neighbor-offers Pepper a temporary dog-walking job, she jumps at the chance. No one needs to know that man's best friend is her worst nightmare . . . or that Everland's hot animal whisperer leaves her panting.

The last thing Rhett Valentine wants is to be the center of small-town gossip. After his first love left him at the altar, he's been there, done that. These days, life is simple, just the way he likes it. But sultry southern nights get complicated once sparks fly between him and the knockout next door. When she proposes a sexy, secret fling-all the deliciousness and none of the prying neighbors-it seems too good to be true. And it is. Because Pepper's determined to leave Love Street, and when she goes, she just might take his heart with her . . . 


This fish out of water tale sees Pepper, big city lawyer (sort of) moving to the sleepy town of Everland to further her law career. A summer as a clerk for the local judge is just what she needs before returning to the big city and joining a prestigious firm. When things go wrong, she's offered a job as a dog walker by her next door neighbour, and town vet, Rhett Valentine. She needs the money, but she's terrified of dogs. Left with little choice, she starts walking the local dogs and gets to know the people who frequent the dog park, the hub of local gossip.
