Book Description:

I’ll get you and your little dogs, too!

Veterinarian Poe Madigan enters The Fur Ball with her Jack Russell terriers (aka The Terrible Two) to compete for a substantial cash prize that will keep her mother from losing her home.  But when her fabulous partner sprains his ankle, Poe must trade him and his talented Bichon for a sexy, muscle-bound hunk who can’t dance and his Basset Hound, Lazy Daisy. If that’s not enough to make her despair, it seems The Terrible Two have angered someone and they’re receiving death threats!

Security specialist Jared Taylor promises one of Poe’s friends that he will go undercover as her dog dancing partner to protect her from danger.  He didn’t expect to find his staid, traditional life would be turned all topsy-turvy and he would find a soft spot for a neglected hound and fall for a Goth princess.  But when he reveals who he really is and why he is in Poe’s life destroy the foundation of trust they’ve built?  Could he lose the real prize – Poe?


I’m not sure if I have ever said this on my blog, but I LOVED these books!  I downloaded Leashed for free and received Groomed for Murder and Hounded from the publicist.  I think it is the dogs that really drew me in since I have two of my own and I just LOVE dogs!  But it is also the unlikely friendship of four women that meet at a dog park.  They probably would never have met had it not been for their dogs and that dog park.  Of course three of the friends have dog related businesses so maybe they would have eventually met, but this made it more interesting.  I like that Poe is edgy in the way she dresses and that her other friends don’t judge her for her looks.  Brooke (from Groomed for Murder) is a take charge business woman that won’t let a snotty high society lady run her over.  And Callie (in Leashed) knows how to train dogs…and looks like men too!   The fourth friend, Harper, has her book coming out later and she is a rich society woman that could care less about her money and cares more about her friends and will help them do whatever it takes.  And what romance book would be complete with out a hunky male?  All three books have men that are perfect for Callie, Brooke and Poe.  These guys complement the women and have strengths that offset the ladies weaknesses….which aren’t many other than getting into trouble!

While I would categorize these books as mostly romance, there is some mystery to them as well.  Obviously I have to give them 5 paws, I enjoyed them that much.  There is a 4th book coming out sometime in the future so I’m going to have to read that book as well.  I highly suggest picking these up or entering below to win a copy for yourself!
