Lucy Gilmore infuses her latest contemporary romance Puppy Kisses with plenty of humor, heat and heart.

Nothing distresses and infuriates Dawn Vasquez more than seeing an animal being mistreated. When she comes across a malnourished and ill-treated puppy chained by its owner’s front-door in the blazing sunshine, Dawn finds herself with no other choice but to rescue the pup and take her to safety. Only on her quest to rescue the adorable dog, she ends up trailed by a police car! Thinking on her feet and needing to escape the long arm of the law, Dawn is determined to throw the sheriff off the scent and tells him that she was speeding because she was taking the puppy to its new owner, respectable rancher Adam Dearborn. Dawn might have been able to convince the sheriff, however, persuading the brooding rancher proves easier said than done…

Adam might have been in need of a guide dog, but he isn’t at all happy to have Dawn Vasquez use him as an excuse for breaking the law. Worse, being anywhere near Dawn is not good for him as the buttoned-up rancher always finds himself acting irrationally around her and ends up having to use all of his strength and resolve to keep himself from kissing her. Dawn might be his complete opposite, but nobody can deny the fact that the attraction between them is anything but mutual. As Dawn begins to spend more and more time on the ranch training the adorable ball of fluff which he has fallen in love with, Adam realizes that giving into temptation and succumbing to the desire that sizzles between them is inevitable.

As lust gives way to something far deeper than either one of them had ever imagined, will Adam and Dawn take a leap of faith and a chance on love? Or will they continue to let their fears and insecurities get in the way of their happy ending?

Lucy Gilmore’s Puppy Kisses is a book that is impossible not to be charmed by. Heart-warming, uplifting, feel-good and wonderfully romantic, Puppy Kisses delights with a beguiling blend of witty banter, intense emotional drama, red-hot chemistry and poignant romance.

Dawn is a terrific heroine and I defy any romance reader not to fall in love with brooding cowboy Adam Dearborn.

Funny, captivating and a joy from beginning to end, contemporary romance fans will not want to miss Puppy Kisses by Lucy Gilmore.
