Despite her sisters' nuptial successes, Clara Carrington is decidedly not interested in a husband - her charitable work is far more fulfilling than marriage would be. Or so she believes, until her sister Pauline sends her an ailing man, recently discharged from the British Army. Captain Stone Hawke-brooding, melancholy, and ruggedly appealing-may be the exact opposite of the New York gentlemen who court Clara, but he's also the only man who has ever made her heart beat faster...With no place else to go, Stone reluctantly accepts the shelter of the Carrington home-although he doesn't believe a Manhattan socialite like Clara can understand what he survived, and lost, in India......

Karen Matheson, a child psychologist and head of Newfoundland Dog rescue, is great with other people's kids and her huge, gentle canines. But with her own daughter, Katie, single mom Karen feels like a failure. Growing up without a father has taken its toll on Katie, who, in her final year of high school, is moody, resentful, and loathe to confide in Karen. Katie's estranged dad was a marine and the need to somehow connect with that unknown part of her prompts the girl to begin hanging out at a local gym, taking boxing lessons from ex-marine Steve Songer.

To nonviolent Karen, Steve has 3 strikes against him: the Corps, a boxing gym, and, of all dogs, a pit bull. Worse, she blames him when Katie secretly enlists in the Marines! Yet as the distance between mother and daughter grows, Karen turns to Steve for help. The emotional fire that ignites between them stuns her. She has long given most of her affection to the Newfies she rescues. But real love means finding the courage to take a leap of faith, face a long kept secret, and perhaps risk everything to follow her heart....
