Take two cats, a dog, and a determined woman…
Animal lover Abby Pimm isn’t looking for love. With two rescue cats, one rescue dog, a struggling business, and her fourteen-year-old sister to raise, she’s got her hands full. What she needs is an angel – though she’ll settle for the devil if he’ll invest in her fledgling company and keep it afloat.
Add a six-year-old girl…
Wealthy businessman Holden Ramsay is no devil. He’s doing all the right things, and when he’s forced to care for his ex’s six-year-old daughter, he ends up hiring Abby as a temporary sitter – a woman who lights up his damaged heart, and perks up other organs as well. A woman who might be his redemption…or his downfall.
Who’s rescuing who?
The animals that Abby rescued think maybe it’s time they do a little rescue work of their own–because sometimes humans in love can be so dense…
A captain coming into his own…
A handful of refugees stranded on board…
A possible traitor in their midst…
A voyage into the territory of the very enemy that pursues them…
Sometimes legends become realities in unexpected ways.
