Trace Bancroft has been in prison for fourteen years paying for a mistake that cost a man his life. Now released, Trace heads back to Bitter Bark with his mutt, Meatball, and runs into Daniel Kilcannon, who offers to provide some medical care for the dog. Trace knows that would mean seeing Molly Kilcannon, a girl who shared one crazy night with him before his life took a turn for the worst. But when Meatball’s illness intensifies, Trace has no choice. He has to face Molly again, and pray she’ll save his dog, no matter what their history.
When Trace Bancroft arrives at Waterford Farm with a critically ill dog, Molly Kilcannon’s entire world is rocked to the core. Firmly believing Trace died in a bar fight years ago, Molly never told anyone that the bad boy of Bitter Bark was the father of Prudence Kilcannon, her very good thirteen-year-old daughter. But Molly has promised to tell Pru the truth about her conception, and now that truth is a living, breathing ex-con whose very existence could change everything, including a precious mother-daughter relationship.
It doesn’t take long for Molly to realize there’s more to this sexy man than his dark past and tattooed arms. And while the realization that he’s a father is the best thing to ever happen to him, Trace doubts anything could make him worthy of Pru or her spirited veterinarian mother. As they nurse Meatball back to health and grow ever closer, Trace and Molly have to decide when and how to tell Pru the truth. But will the secret that binds their hearts be the very thing that breaks them apart?
The Dogfather Series
Daniel Kilcannon is known as “The Dogfather” for a reason. It’s not just his renowned skills as a veterinarian, his tremendous love of dogs, or the fact that he has turned his homestead in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains into a world class dog training and rescue facility. Just ask his six grown children who run Waterford Farm for him, and they’ll tell you that their father’s nickname is due to his uncanny ability to pull a few strings to get what he wants. And what he wants is for his four sons and two daughters to find the kind of life-changing love he had with his dearly departed wife, Annie. This old dog has a few new tricks…and he’ll use them to see his pack all settled into their happily ever afters!
Bad to the Bone
This story is fantastic. It is a great addition to this series! I can’t wait for the next one in the series!
Bad to the Bone
Bad to the Bone is a sweet story about second chances, redemption, family and, of course, a matchmaking Dogfather. Molly and Trace shared a night together. Fourteen years later he discovers they shared more than that. How they handle the revelations of their years apart will impact more than their futures. Ms. St. Claire is a multi-talented author as at home with sweet fiction as she is with her more steamy works and mysteries. She is on this reader’s must buy list. She should be on yours also. I received an advance copy of this book. My review is voluntary. Highly recommend.
Follow the Dog
Trace and Molly have a long history that has irrevocably changed their lives. And as in all Dogfather books it is a dog 🐕 that could bring them together and bridge the gap that is keeping them apart.
We all deserve second chances at love and some deserve the first chance to know their father in the case of Molly’s daughter Prudence.
Is their enough love ❤️ and forgiveness to bring that family together.
This is the fifth installment of the Dogfather series and at the heart of each story is a dog and love of family. This story and this series is worth reading.
