About this ebook

Weston was at an impasse in his life, after hearing about his unknown daughter, who’d already been adopted by another family. Only the father had since passed away… So … accepting the mission to track down the missing, blind-in-one-eye, limping war dog named Shambhala—in Alaska—was exactly where he needed to be to sort out this other issue in his life. Finding the dog turned out to be easier than Weston had expected, but sorting out how and why this dog’s owners had been murdered was something else again.

Now a widow, Daniela knew her daughter also needed a father, so she’d contacted Weston, not sure if he even knew of the baby’s existence. When he said he was on the way, she was concerned at what she’d started and that emotion then turned to terror when Sari’s birth mother showed up at Daniela’s doorstep, looking for her daughter again.

Things turn ugly when Weston’s war dog investigation impacts his daughter’s life and her new mother. He must do something, or everything he’s finally found will be lost.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily reviewing it. This is a great addition to the series. I loved the plot. Weston goes to Alaska to not only check in on Shambhala, a War Dog who has gone missing, but to see his daughter. The daughter that he didn't know about until after his one-night stand gave her up for adoption. The woman who adopted Sari, after she found out who the father was, called him to come to Alaska to see his 18 month old daughter. This was a wonderful story that was told in a dual POV format. I really like reading both of the characters' thoughts. It helps me to identify and connect with them so much better. The story was so good that I stayed up late to finish it. I just had to see how all the different mysteries would be solved. I was sad to see this one end. I was really ready to continue on with their story. If you love military romance (and really who doesn't!) and a strong female, a baby and a K-9, then this story is one that is a must. Now there was a slightly sexy scene. It was highly glossed over so it should not offend anyone but I can only highly recommend this story to someone OVER the age of 18.

Eighth book in the series. Was not on the the better ones. Weston asks for the assignment which involves a trip to Alaska. On arrival he is met at the airport much to his confusion. And there it's starts a convoluted and tangled plot which involves death and mayhem. A dog with a sense of honour, a military man needing to change is life, a female who we don't really get to know and the law who are short staffed. A reread of certain passages is the only way to get the gist of the plot because it's just too complex. The events all happen over the course of a couple of days and when it culminates it's like a tsunami. However, girl gets boy and we believe they have their happy after. I did not connect to the hero and heroine as I may have done in many of Ms Mayer's books I have read before this one.

(4.5) Thank you for a read that took me to Alaska, that made smile with the banter between Weston (our wounded warrior) and Daniela (widow). Daniela is the adopted mom of a daughter Weston didn't know about till after the fact. What a twist. My heart went out to Shambhala, the wounded war dog, and reveled in his enduring strength and love for Sari. This tale encompasses an intriguing mystery, or two with twists and turns. The strength of Daniela , what all she has been through and her willingness to reach out to Weston spoke volumes. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and thank Dale Mayer and Booksprout for the arc. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
