As the director of the Port Provident Animal Shelter, Becca Collins had devoted her life to helping the furriest residents of Port Provident. When a special Labrador retriever, Polly, needs her help on the eve of Hurricane Hope, Becca can’t say no–even if it means she’ll have to ride out the hurricane on Provident Island. When she shows up on the doorstep of local veterinarian Dr. Ross Reeder, Becca throws a wrench into Ross’ plans to evacuate himself and his combat-weary former Army dog, Cookie.
Ross and Becca are used to disagreeing with one another, but they soon realize the only way they’re going to survive the wrath of Hurricane Hope is to put their differences aside and work for the good of the animals who depend totally on them. As they discover they have more in common than they thought, they work to rebuild the Texas beach town where they’ve both put down roots. But then Becca learns secrets about her past that threaten to change the whole direction of her life.
As she struggles with love, faith, and lies, will she still need the shelter she’s found in Ross’ arms or will the aftermath of the storm take away everything they’ve worked to build?
