USA Today bestselling author Catherine Gayle presents another novel in the emotional, bestselling Portland Storm hockey romance series.
Wanted: Single father of three needs medical-alert dog and live-in nanny.
Chris “Hammer” Hammond is at the end of his career as a Journeyman defenseman with the Portland Storm, but he’s got one final shot at going out on top. Everything’s going according to plan until his ex drops a bomb on him: she’s remarrying, moving to Europe, and leaving the kids behind. Even worse? His youngest is sick. Chris needs help, and he needs it yesterday.
When Scout Kennedy is honorably discharged from the army, she’s offered the opportunity of a lifetime. Her military working dog, Tango, is being retired after losing a leg in the line of duty, and Scout gets first dibs on adopting him. Without question, she jumps at the chance. They can be PTSD buddies, just like they were war-zone buddies. But now they both need a new focus for their specialized skills—something that doesn’t involve explosives.
Being a nanny was never on Scout’s radar, but the job is perfect for Tango, and these two come as a package deal. Before long, Chris and Scout are butting heads…and knocking boots. But not even fiery chemistry is enough for these two headstrong personalities to meet at center ice when it comes to Tango and the kids. Or is it?
Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot?
