Winning her over means winning everything

Sophie Callahan is PI Brad Harrington’s best lead to tracking down the man he’s been hired to bring to justice: Sophie’s own thieving father. But when Brad arrives at The Pampered Pooch, just behind a litter of stray kittens, the pet-store owner is the big surprise. This scrappy, huge-hearted woman with charm to spare gets to Brad in a way no one has ever been able to before. She spends her life finding—and making—homes for others: abandoned pets, her young niece. He’ll have to tell her why he’s really here. Which means he’ll have to choose between his sail-away dreams and the chance to build a forever home—with her.


“How did you cook a spicy stir-fry?” Brad asked.
“We were too lazy to go to the store.” Sophie restacked the cookery books as if that was the end to Sunday-night surprise. “So we improvised.”
Brad cringed. Improvised was the culinary equivalent to deconstructed, and never a good sign on those TV cooking shows he watched every night.
Sophie avoided him, edging around the table rather than crossing in front of him to return the cookbooks to the shelf. She wouldn’t look at him. He’d already guessed from the last ten minutes that she probably wasn’t the best cook on the West Coast or even the city block. Not that it mattered. She was trying to build something special for Ella. She was making memories for herself and her niece: good memories that lasted.
A warning flared inside him, telling him these memories belonged to Ella and Sophie, not him. But he barreled on past the exit-now sign flashing in his mind, very much determined to add to their memories. Yes, Sophie’s stove was more vintage than practical. He’d bet the temperature in the oven hadn’t been calibrated in over two decades. And if he guessed correctly, only two of the four burners worked. Yet he wanted to make dinner here with them. Against all good sense and logic and rationale, he wanted to experience prepping and cooking in this kitchen with this family.
“How about this?” Brad grabbed a cookbook from the top of Sophie’s stack, enjoying the surprise in her gaze. “Sophie, you play around with the laptop and the cameras. Ella will introduce me to the spice drawer and help me do a Sunday-night surprise Brad Harrington style.”
