Three Dog Night
Three Dog Night comes second in The Dogmothers series. This book stars Alex Santorini, a chef working in his family’s restaurant. Given his deep commitment to his family, Alex doesn’t see himself working anywhere else. He is sure his Greek grandmother will do everything to keep him working within the family. However, when a chef position opens up in the local winery, Alex steps to take the position. The winery is organizing a celebrity wedding, and Alex sees this as a perfect opportunity to show the world his culinary skills. He is also looking to get close to the winery owner, a dazzling beauty who has captivated him yet refused his attention.

Having grown up in foster homes, Grace has spent most of her life building walls to protect herself. She is sure that the intensity and passion that Alex promises her will burn down all her walls and later leave her broken, just like everyone else in her life.

It turns out that Grace’s biological mother had something to do with the abandoned puppies, and once the truth is revealed, Grace will have to make some hard choices. Will she choose the love she is sure never to find again or the family she had always hoped for? Alex is an easy man to love. He is gentle, loving, and once he discovers why Grace has been ignoring him, he goes the extra mile to help her. Grace is just as lovely.
