About The Dogfather

Daniel Kilcannon is known as "The Dogfather" for a reason. It's not just his renowned skills as a veterinarian, his tremendous love of dogs, or the fact that he has turned his homestead in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains into a world class dog training and rescue facility. Ask his six grown children who run Waterford Farm for him, and they'll tell you that their father's nickname is due to his uncanny ability to pull a few strings to get what he wants. And what he wants is for his four sons and two daughters to find the kind of life-changing love he had with his dearly departed wife, Annie. This old dog has a few new tricks...and he'll use them all to see his pack all settled into their happily ever afters!

SIT...STAY...BEG – Book One
Garrett Kilcannon, a former dot com super-success who now devotes his life to rescuing dogs and finding them homes, prefers to keep his secrets buried as deep as a dog hides his bone. So when he learns his father has invited a journalist to Waterford Farm to write and produce an in-depth profile on him, he doesn't care that she's a childhood friend or drop dead gorgeous. He has zero tolerance for the media...until he sees a different side when she gets through the walls of a rescue dog who's refused to eat during her short stay at Waterford. Unwillingly charmed and undeniably attracted, Garrett agrees to the interview that could break down a few of his emotional walls, too.

Garrett might not want to share the story of his colorful former life, but Jessie Curtis has the skills to peel back the layers of this sexy, complicated, caring man. In the process, she not only discovers his secrets, she finds herself falling for a man who touches her heart in a way she never thought possible. Her entire career is riding on this one explosive interview, but can she bear to repay Garrett's trust by selling his secrets? Or can a woman who gave up on happiness a long time ago learn to believe that all it takes to rescue a lost heart is the love of a good man?

This is not a cliffhanger. Roxanne St. Claire wrote a story with a twist. I enjoyed Garret and Jessica's romance. I wept when Lola found her Number 1.... I recommend this story to adult readers.

I am old enough to remember Shirley Temple movies and how the endings always elicited a bucket of happy tears. Sit...Stay...Beg is the modern day, adult, sensual version for me. I am now fully invested in this wonderfully loving family! Thank you, Roxanne St. Claire, for combining my favorite animals and scrumptious humans in a great series!!!

The story was written especially for those of us who are among the many DOG lovers in this world. I found myself immediately drawn into the closeness of the family and feeling all the love of the children for their parents. I am looking forward to book two and more of the series to come. JCM
