On a bright autumn day, Flynn Marlowe lost his best friend, a beagle named Barley, while out on a hike in Seattle’s Discovery Park.
On a cold winter day, Mac Bowersox found his best friend, a lost, scared, and emaciated beagle, on the streets of Seattle.
Two men. One dog. When Flynn and Mac meet by chance in a park later that summer, there’s a problem: who does Barley really belong to? Flynn wants him back, but he can see that Mac rescued him and loves him just as much as he does. Mac wants to keep the dog, and he can imagine how heartbreaking losing him would be—but that’s just what Flynn experienced.
A “shared custody” compromise might be just the way to work things out. But will the arrangement be successful? Mac and Flynn are willing to try it—and along the way, they just might fall in love.
She is my friend, my partner, my inspiration, my comfort. She’s my dog.
I’m her life, her love, her leader.
She’ll be mine, faithful and true, until the last beat of her heart.
I owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.
If you know me even slightly, you know the above can be about only one dog—her name is Lily and she’s a Boston terrier. My husband and I got her at eight weeks old and she’s now thirteen years old. No other creature has brought us such unconditional love.
It’s Lily who inspired me to write a romance with a dog at its center, its heart. Dogs not only add a special brand of unconditional love to their families (or packs—be it one or many), they can also help cement a relationship between two people in love, as she did with Bruce and me.
This is why I dedicated Lost and Found to my sweet, precious Lily.
Here’s what the dedication page looks like in Lost and Found:
This book is dedicated to my heart, my soul, my snoring sweetheart, Lily.
And here’s Lily, who’s also my muse, hard at work inspiring me as I write another story. What was I working on when this pic was taken? Perhaps it was Lost and Found.
