Australian romance writer Cathy Carruthers has been avoiding men in the wake of a painful break-up, but when she meets award-winning literary novelist David Hillier, neither can resist their powerful mutual desire. But her ex is hunting her down, and her grandmother’s serious accident means Cathy is landed with a slew of responsibilities, including the care of a tiny and courageous chihuahua, Pixel.
Meanwhile, David has his own problems: writer’s block, the challenge of finding acceptable housing for his father, and the care of his father’s elderly yet devoted guide dog. Pressures build on the couple. How can they possibly build a life together?
