For Keeps (Love to the Rescue)
Grand Central / January 27, 2015 / $6.00 print, $5.99 digital
Merry Atwater would do just about anything to save her dog rescue - even if it means working with the most stubborn man on the planet. It's hard to avoid the sparks that fly with TJ Jameson, the ruggedly sexy cowboy in charge of the children's camp where she's just taken an animal therapy job. But commitment is not Mary’s style, and TJ clearly wants more than just a roll in the hay.
TJ Jameson isn't looking for anything complicated-just a peaceful life on his family's ranch with a wife and kids. “No-strings” Merry Atwater doesn't fit that bill, no matter how irresistible she is. But when he sees how Merry gets through to his autistic nephew and the other kids at Camp Blue Sky, TJ's a goner. If he doesn't give in to the now, he might just lose his shot at forever . . .
There is no doubt that romance readers have a thing for admirable, courageous characters. That is one of the primary reasons the main characters in a romance novel are referred to as the hero or the heroine, instead of the protagonist.
