They’ve Got Image Problems...
Reggie Snow is the author of the popular YA Paddy Dimple series. Her childhood, best friend, Dr. Patrick "Trick" McCullough is a former playboy, current OBGYN. They've each got some image problems. She's unexpectedly pregnant, not a great thing for a woman who's primary audience consists of impressionable teens. And he's on the nurses' naughty list; always a problem for a randy man who's seen most of the single women in his small town naked without sleeping with any of them. Besides, Trick's starting to realize it might be time to settle down if he wants to increase his patient list to include the pregnant mamas waddling around town.
That can be fixed…
They decide to work together by playing married until Reggie's baby's born. She hopes that her pregnancy won't bag her latest book's sales or encourage young adults to have unwed pregnancies. He hopes a family-man image will destroy his bad-boy bachelor reputation so he can deliver babies and heal more women in his small town of Hadley Falls, Vermont.
As long as they don’t fall in love…or into bed. Easy to say, until she starts kissing Trick.

But Nana had a possession that no one knew about: an Irish Wolfhound as large as pony that runs like one, too. When the beast runs into Jack—repeatedly—she starts to wonder. Especially when she hears Nana’s voice in the dog’s yowls. Is Ellie channeling Nana? And is Nana trying to right the wrong with the man who broke her girlish heart?
