Perfect for fans of Lori Foster, Maya Banks and Jill Shalvis. When it comes to love, they already know the rules...by heart.

Divorced and hardly lacking in female company when he needs it, he's devoted to the only faithful companion in his life - his police dog. Still, there's something about Emma he can't shake. When a series of local break-ins leaves Emma vulnerable, she seeks help from the first man to spark her desire in years. And now they're giving each other something they thought they'd lost forever...hope. This is a series to warm your heart about second chances at love, first loves reunited, and finding love when and where you least expect it.
