How Michelle Howard chose her pet for Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2

By Michelle Howard

I’m a dog person so when asked to participate in the Pets in Space anthology I knew immediately that my pet of choice would be a dog. In fact, I went right to a K9 because they are the best of the best in the dog world. LOL.

I write science fiction romance which meant I got to play around with my version of a K9 and combine that with my love of warrior heroes. In Wired For Love, my story features a former soldier who’s made a life for himself outside of his time in the military and he’s not interested in having anything to do with the government again if he can help it.

Hmm, well…best laid plans and all that.  My K9, Bogan, has something to say about that and my hero is reluctantly drawn into the edges of his former life.

While writing this story I had the pleasure of reading and researching K9’s for law enforcement and walked away more impressed then I already was beforehand. I was torn between many breeds and final settled on the Belgian Malinois because of their beauty and agility. I hope those reading my story take away the same level of pleasure and enjoyment I did from these terrific animals.

Wired for Love

Hunter Gils has put his past in the military behind him. Now his focus is on his bar and the less than savory clientele. Life is perfect – except for a gray-eyed beauty who refuses his advances.

Narelle Bindu wasn’t immune to the tall, dark stranger working at The Zone. He wanted her – and she wanted him. The only drawback was she didn’t have room in her life for a man, not even one as tempting as Hunter.

When a deadly attack creates the perfect opening for an old enemy, the two lovers must work together to survive. What they never expect is to find an ally willing to help them – even if that help has four legs. Can their four-legged friend keep Hunter and Narelle alive long enough to find out that one night would never be enough?
