Roxanne Bloom is surrounded by her friends who have all reached their “happily ever afters” and she is having a hard time putting on a happy face every time she hears some wonderful news about a new baby or dream job. She certainly doesn’t want to be a part of Mrs. Needleman’s meddling matchmaking attempts.  Roxie was hurt in the past by love, and after being canned from her newspaper job at the San Francisco Journal she decides to start her own website, www.i-vomit-on-all-men.com, and adopts Lilith, a high strung, severely aggressive mish-mosh of Boxer, Staffordshire terrier (the less incendiary name for a pit bull) and some kind of hound, possibly beagle.

Eli Gallagher is everything a woman could want. Except Roxie, since she has sworn of all men. But Eli is the best dog trainer on the West Coast. Will he be able to give Roxie and Lilith the strength and courage to trust not just in each other, but possibly make them a family? Will Roxie finally get her happily ever after?

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1
The room nearly overflowed with hope, joy, and love, and Roxanne Bloom knew if she didn’t get out of there within the next thirty seconds, the top of her head would blow off.
“Having a swell time?” Bea asked, squeezing her formidable figure between Roxanne and the throng of baby shower revelers.
Busted, Roxie thought to herself with a sigh.
True, her friend Bea Latimer didn’t miss much, but Roxanne was sure she’d been doing a stellar job of faking it, hanging back in the corner of the big living room, smiling and nodding at all the right times.
