Pine Hollow (Book 2)
When Connor Wyeth adopts Maximus, an unruly Irish wolfhound mix, he gets more than he bargained for. The only person Max ever listens to is the volunteer who used to walk him at the shelter - a woman whose day job is planning princess parties for kids. Deenie Mitchell isn't looking forward to spending more time with uptight Connor. But when her sister announces her engagement, Deenie realizes he's the perfect person to impress her family. When she learns he needs a plus-one for his work events, an alliance is formed. But as they play the perfect couple, the friendship and feelings that are forming start to feel all too real.
