Rescued Heart Series by Bestselling Author Leah Atwood

About the books

Introducing Rescued Hearts, a new series from USA Today Bestselling Author Leah Atwood. Join the women of Hope House Women’s Shelter as they find love…with the help of a dog.

Roxie . . . A lot can happen in ten years.

Rachel Goodman can testify to that. She’s been engaged, left at the altar, changed jobs, and moved three thousand miles away from friends and family to take the director position of Hope House Women’s Shelter. Throughout it all, Roxie, her golden retriever mix, has been her faithful companion and friend.

A trip to the vet brings a scary diagnosis for Roxie, but it also introduces Rachel to Aaron Bradley. He understands what Rachel feels—he walked that road five years ago. They have an instant connection but can that sustain them into love?

Hope . . . Recently widowed, Luna Salcedo is recovering from years of emotional and physical abuse. On her way home to her temporary housing at Hope House Women’s Shelter, she spots an injured dog lying in the road and realizes it’s still alive. Without a second thought, she carefully rushes the dog to the vet.

Carl Thomas can’t explain his draw to Luna. He’s admired her from the day she came to Hope House, and they’d formed a tentative friendship. When she asks him to take in the dog she named, Hope, he immediately agrees. Only, he didn’t realize the amount of care required.

As Luna and Carl work together to restore Hope’s health, attraction blossoms. Carl knows he’ll have to take it slow, but can he convince Luna that not every man is like her abusive late husband?

Hope is the second book of the Rescued Heart series, where dogs help to bring love to the ladies of Hope House Women’s Shelter.
