Must Love Dogs by Karen Fox
What is a woman afraid of dogs supposed to do in a town filled with them?
When Megan Grinnell discovers the brother she thought dead is alive, she's thrilled. Now she'll have a family. But her teenage brother, Riley, doesn't remember her. Worse, the next door neighbor, Kade Sullivan, is his temporary guardian.
Meg is determined to do whatever it takes to win over her brother. Even if it means moving to Dogwood, a town littered with dogs, which terrify her. In addition, she has to find a way to convince Kade she's the best guardian for Riley.
Kade swore to Riley's father to watch over the boy. He's not about to let this citified socialite take Riley away from Dogwood, even if she is his sister. Problem is, she's attractive on many levels, which he really doesn't need right now. He's learned women aren't to be trusted, and that includes Meg.
Can Meg overcome her fear and Kade his distrust of women in order to make the best life for a grieving, rebellious boy?
