I’ll get you and your little dogs, too!
Veterinarian Poe Madigan enters The Fur Ball with her Jack Russell terriers (aka The Terrible Two) to compete for a substantial cash prize that will keep her mother from losing her home. But when her fabulous partner sprains his ankle, Poe must trade him and his talented Bichon for a sexy, muscle-bound hunk who can't dance and his Basset Hound, Lazy Daisy. If that's not enough to make her despair, it seems The Terrible Two have angered someone and they're receiving death threats!
Security specialist Jared Taylor promises one of Poe's friends that he will go undercover as her dog dancing partner to protect her from danger. He didn't expect to find his staid, traditional life would be turned all topsy-turvy and he would find a soft spot for a neglected hound and fall for a Goth princess. But when he reveals who he really is and why he is in Poe’s life destroy the foundation of trust they’ve built? Could he lose the real prize - Poe?

Going to the Dogs

She rose, smoothing out the full skirt of the apple motif dress she wore. The rows of different apples made her feel like a demented Snow White. She was sure Snow never wore razor blade earrings and a red leather, spiked dog collar, though. One of the guys punched him in the shoulder and he gave him a smug look before heading her way.
“Hey,” he said as he approached, sweat running down over the tantalizing planes of his cheekbones to his hard jaw. Normally she wouldn’t find that intriguing, but it slipped down his strong neck and rode along his clavicle, soaking into his t-shirt.
“Did you know the clavicle is the only bone in the human body that lies horizontally?”
Oh, God. Had she said that out loud? “The…clavicle…um…collarbone.” She reached up and slid her fingertips along the ridge of bone, discovering his skin was moist, warm, and soft. Then she wanted to smack herself in the head. She jerked her hand away. What possessed her to touch him? Compulsion. Sheer stupidity. Her awkward social skills?
“I like your clavicle, too,” he said softly, and there went her lungs again, compressing from his g-force-impact voice.
“In that dress and those kick-ass heels, you look like a lethal Betty Boop. Makes a man want to know if one bad apple spoils the whole bunch.”
