Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m so excited to finally be getting a chance to read this wonderful novel.


Here is the first line:


Across the San Diego Bay, the sun slipped behind the skyline of Shelter Island.



Alison Dockerty has a big heart for the homeless and a vivid imagination for writing sweet romantic fantasies on her blog The Love Dock. When she meets Navy Special Forces Instructor Nick Reid at a CrossFit competition, she can’t resist fabricating a story that will get his attention. But Nick’s been burned before and isn’t about to trust his heart to a woman who has no problem using and manipulating him, even to the point of contracting horseback riding lessons at his family’s ranch. Reluctantly drawn into Alison’s world when she takes a young homeless girl under her wing, Nick’s feelings are put to the test. And a decision Alison makes may drive them apart for good.
