Editorial Reviews

You Gotta Read Reviews - Brynna Curry
"Dog Nanny is a sweet, steamy and often laugh-out-loud treat that will leave you wanting more." ~You Gotta Read Reviews, You Need to Read
The Romance Studio - Steph B
"...a charming and funny tale filled with the joys and problems loving dogs can bring into your life!...If you like humor, dogs, and really mixed up main characters; this is the book for you! I loved it!" ~The Romance Studio, 5 Hearts
Long and Short of It Reviews - Wild Plum
"...captivating from start to finish. It's a cute and charming love story. All of the characters of this book have a story of their own and I just love how Ms. Whitaker weaves them all together to make one incredible story...It's a book that could be classified as the book of the summer." 4/5 Books
CK2S Kwips and Kritiques - Crystal Crystal
Blanco and Noche are adorable doggie characters and their challenging transformation from wild house dogs to well-mannered pets is great fun to follow. Julie's energy and determination to find someone to share her life more than kept me involved with the story. Just give this book a try and you will soon understand why Dog Nanny was a finalist in the 2008 Linda Howard Award of Excellence Contest. 4 Shamrocks
Books, Books, & More Books - Tracey M.
"This is a hilarious written book with the two dogs acting more like children than dogs, Julie trying to correct them and Mrs. Esposito not wanting her to use corrective measures. If you are a dog owner, dog fancier, or one that does not have any pets, you will enjoy this book. There are some scenes that get pretty sensual, but all in all in was a cute read. From comedy to a touch of mystery, to romantic interludes, to training tips, this would make a delightful movie." 4 Stars

Meet the Author

Ann Whitaker lives in the heart of Texas with her journalist husband and two dogs-Jolie Blon, a spoiled Cajun poodle, and Mardi Gras, a retired pet therapy dog.

She's been writing in one form or another all her life. A reformed high school and college English teacher, she's published poetry, non-fiction, and short fiction in newspapers, literary journals, and magazines. Her fictional characters are often larger than life and sometimes find themselves in absurd situations.

Songwriter David Allan Coe says the perfect country and western song has to have certain elements: Mama, trains, trucks, prison, and gettin' drunk. Ann's stories almost always have a dog.
She's currently working on another novel and a collection of slice-of-life essays about everything from a 350-pound roofer to a love affair with a kitchen sink. She calls it "chicken-fried Nora Ephron."

When not writing, Ann plays mah jongg, reads, sings, and plays the guitar.

Julie is a dog trainer who has to tame two rambunctious poodles in order to save her client's marriage. Meanwhile, her love life is a mess. Should she choose the eccentric rich kid who works at Walmart or the cross-dressing cop? Maybe she should just take a vow of chastity and give up. Right about the time she's planning to do just that, she meets sexy pilot, Nick, a friend of her eccentric client. Nick knows how to make Julie sit up and beg, but would he make a good mate for life? This is a fun, lighthearted romance with a chick lit attitude. Julie's smart and good-natured, Nick's a heartthrob - and the two giant poodles just about steal the story. A fun romantic read, especially for dog lovers.
