Title: Rescuing Jellybean (part of the Jelly Beans and Spring Things Series with The Wild Rose Press)

 

Author: Nicki Pascarella

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Book Blurb:

 

When Conner Sullivan follows a trail of jelly beans to find an orphaned Sheltie, he immediately knows that he wants to adopt the beautiful dog. The only thing standing in his way is sexy Rainey Thibodeau, the uptight workaholic farmer who runs the Moose Pond Dog Rescue.

 

No matter what, Rainey won’t give in to Connor. So what if he has the body of a Greek god, hair the color of a penny in the sun, and the eyes of an angel. The arrogant ass stole her heart over fifteen years ago, and he won’t get one more thing from her... including the dog called Jellybean.

 

Excerpt:

 

“Hello, Rainey,” Sherry said. “Do you remember Connor Sullivan? He inherited Ed’s place on the overlook. Connor, remember Rainey Thibodeau? You two used to play together when you were kids. She bought the Millers’ organic farm about a mile up the road and spruced it up with a cafe and farm store. Plus, she runs the local dog rescue.”

 

Rainey bit her lip as she looked into Connor’s blue eyes. Now she recognized him. About fifteen years ago, he had pushed her off the dock into ice-cold water, and eighteen years ago, he had rubbed her doll’s face in the mud.

 

The man looked up from his burger to take her in. A second later, he grinned. He wiped his hand on a napkin and held it out. “Hey, Rainey. Last time I saw you—”

 

She ignored his extended palm. “You were about fifteen, and I was thirteen, and you called me monkeyface.” And you didn’t bother to come to Ronnie’s funeral.
