Can a little girl and a big goofy dog help two lonely people fall in love?
Hello! My name is Harley. People say I am a Bad Dog, but I do not mean to be.
When I meet a little girl named Gracie at the shelter, I know right away that we will be best friends. But her mom Savannah says they cannot take me home because I am just too big.
I go home with a nice man named Drew and guess what? He tells Gracie and Savannah they can visit me. Drew is lonely and he really likes Savannah. She likes him, too. So my Gracie and I make a secret plan: we will get Drew and Savannah to fall in love. Then all four of us will be a forever family.
But Drew has a secret. And Savannah is afraid of getting hurt.
I have a problem, too. To make the plan work, I must be a Good Dog. And it is so hard to be Good…
Shelley and Ty can't stand each other—or so it seems. But one smart cat sees through them both.
I am Zeno, a highly intelligent (and quite handsome) Persian cat. I am also a worried cat. My person, Tyson, is in bad shape. Ever since his baseball career ended, he’s become grouchy and impossible.
I made a promise to look after him. To keep him from being lonely. But there’s only so much I can do. Tyson’s lost. He needs human companionship.
Shelley, who’s right next door, could be the answer. I’ve seen how he looks at her. Though she clearly doesn’t like him, I’m sure Tyson could change that if he only showed her his kind and caring side. The side I see every day.
It’s going to take all my ingenuity to get these two together. If I succeed, they’ll have happiness and each other. If I fail…
But I won’t fail. I must keep my promise.
Even if it takes all my nine lives to do so.

Don't Let Go:
It began twelve years ago, with a kiss on the doorstep. Now he’s back to win the woman he loves.
When Eric Sorenson's date dumped him right before the Senior Prom, his older sister’s best friend stepped in to save him from total humiliation. He never forgot Annalee or what she did for him that night…or the kiss they shared.
After a messy divorce, Annalee's not looking forward to her high school reunion. She's shocked when Eric appears at her door ready to return the favor and play escort. Gone is the inexperienced boy with a severe stutter—he's a striking, confident man. The memory of the kiss they shared rekindles an attraction that never died. But her heart’s been bruised and she’s reluctant to risk it again.
That’s not stopping Eric. He lost Annalee once. This time, he won't let go.
