Operation K-9 Brothers
by Sandra Owens
Genre: Military Romance
Navy SEAL Jack Daniels (save the jokes, he’s heard them all) and his trusty Belgian Malinois sidekick, Dakota, are back home in Asheville, North Carolina, after a bomb left them scarred. Unable to accept that he’ll never be able to return to his team, Jack is looking for a miracle. What he isn’t looking for is a permanent relationship, though he’s open to a no-strings distraction at the magic hands of gorgeous local potter Nichole Masters.
Nichole is on a losing streak with men. Her ex-boyfriend won’t stay gone, a competitor is out to ruin her business and even her rescue pup, Rambo, is refusing to get in line. A chance run-in with a navy SEAL turned canine companion trainer might solve the dog problem. The fact Jack is easy on the eyes doesn’t hurt, either.
But when Nichole feels like she’s being watched, Jack is the only person she can turn to. He’s a protector and problem solver by nature and training. Accepting his protection is one thing—Nichole didn’t count on falling in love.

Jack is a former Navy SEAL whose life was saved by his military dog Dakota. He and Dakota find themselves in NC as they heal from their injuries and although Jack hopes to return to service the same fate isn’t possible for Dakota. All it takes is answering a call not meant for him and he is on a mission of a different kind and that is to track down the woman who intrigued him with only a few choice words.
Nichole is an artist who hasn’t made the best choices about the men she has allowed in her one. She escaped a relationship with an abusive ex and now she has been betrayed professionally by a friend she thought she could trust. When she meets Jack although she is cautious but their affinity for dogs brings them together.
Seeing the relationship between Jack and Nichole was fun to watch but it wasn’t without its complications due to their pasts. The characters draw you in and there was a great balance between romance, intrigue and emotion.
