Sequoia Carr is better off alone. At least, that's what she's been telling herself (and everyone else) since her ex blamed his affair on her icy disposition. For the past six years, she's been happily married to her job as a police officer. Now, she's in danger of losing that, too. It's common office knowledge that Sequoia likes dogs even than she likes people. So when her evil boss assigns her a K9 partner in an attempt to make her fail, sexy-but-standoffish Elijah Sawyer jumps at the opportunity to help her succeed … not only with her new partner, but in love, too. He proposes an experiment to test her hypothesis that she's cut out for solitude.
Even as the attraction simmers between them, Sequoia knows there's only one conclusion the experiment can reach. But if she doesn't master this relationship, she'll likely lose the job—and the man—she loves. REVIEWS: "I loved this story. Hilary Dartt did a wonderful job of creating these characters. Elijah is basically a prince charming. If he were any more the perfect guy he would be annoying, but he is just the right amount of perfect guy and smart mouth. Sequoia is a hope non-romantic. She definitely has a way of turning guys off. Good thing Elijah isn't like most guys. His experiment was pure genius. One of my favorite parts of the story is seeing Sequoia bond with Xena.
I highly recommend this book!" - Carla Parker "When I first began reading it, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Seqouia had a very quirky personality." - Roda, an Amazon Reviewer
