For the love of dogs!

Yes, I’ve been a cat person for years. It’s hard to tuck a dog into an insanely busy life, whereas a cat (other than when they sit on my keyboard) can make a cozy existence with a writer: napping on manuscripts, tripping you on the way to the bathroom at night, and making very happy noises with the simple application of a few pets and a string toy (oh, and a can of cat food).

However, I grew up with dogs and every now and then they just leap forth and beg to be included in my life once more. Thankfully, as a writer, I can find ways to do that without actually getting a dog again. (At least not for now.)

And that’s what just happened.

The final story of the Henderson’s Ranch series just had to lead me back to where I’d started. In the second story (Reaching Out at Henderson’s Ranch), injured SEAL Stan Corman falls for…a dog. A war dog handler, who lost his future as a SEAL along with his furry, explosives-sniffing companion to a bomb in Afghanistan, is licking his wounds when a Malinois puppy saves his life.

Personally, I thought that he was going to find true love in Big Sky, Loyal Heart. But alas for poor Stan, Rip the dog was unable to win him Lauren’s heart—leading her to fall for a cowboy instead.

Now, three years after Bertram the puppy saved his life, it’s time to send his dogs to the wars that he can no longer fight. But the arrival of a female dog handler and her own war dog, suffering from PTSD, gives him a challenge (and a true love) of his very own.

love writing about the dogs. I’m sure there will be more of them in my future tales. But the series that began with Mark Henderson and Emily Beale arriving for Christmas at Henderson’s Ranchhas now found it’s final happy ever after in:
