A WALK IN THE PARK
Tory’s mother gave her twelve “fathers.” Tory gave her heart to each one of them, only to have it trampled. Now she wants nothing to do with romance. Though breathtakingly beautiful, she lives hand to mouth and has made up her mind to muddle through as best she can without a man.
Then Tory’s life is disrupted yet again. Witness to a murder and fearing retribution, she retreats to a rental cottage to care for her brother’s Alaskan malamutes—dogs famous for their destructive ways, combativeness, and noisy “wooing.” It doesn’t take long for Cole, whose cottage next door serves as a refuge from his business empire, to beat the door down, intending to read her the riot act. At the sight of the dogs’ delectable caretaker, his fury quickly evaporates and is replaced by a resolve to get her into his bed. Cole is any girl’s dream man but also her worst nightmare. Gorgeous multi-millionaire he may be; he’s also a notorious cad. The fact that Tory doesn’t care either way makes him all the more determined to conquer her.
Irresistible Cole may be, but he’s never met the likes of Tory and her five malamute charges.
