When Riverbend Animal Conservation Center offers her a chance to lead their veterinary team and help repopulate endangered species in her own backyard, Veronica eagerly accepts. The opportunity to train Luna, a foster puppy for Riverbend K-9 Academy’s wildlife detection program, is an added bonus. Veronica’s longtime friend, Kai Torres, the head zookeeper at RACC, joins her in restoring the new land conservancy near Riverbend. Their mission becomes urgent after discovering that two citizens were attacked nearby. As they work to ensure the land’s safety, Luna’s discoveries reveal that the perpetrator is using the conservancy as cover for a nefarious crime. Now, Veronica and Kai must uncover the truth before it’s too late.

Hard to Fake by Piper Lawson

Miles Garrett is a pro basketball player with a heartstopping smile and infamous cocky charm. But to me, he’s always been more than a celebrity; he’s the guy who puts friends and family first…and my college crush. When my sorority sister decides to bring my ex to our reunion, I need a plus-one who can have my back and save my pride. Asking Miles is the perfect solution—until he raises the stakes for both of us. He says he’s only playing to win and will be the best fake boyfriend I’ve ever had. But his gaze hunts mine across a crowded room, he protects me with a fierceness that steals my breath, and our just-for-show kisses ignite a wildfire inside me. Fighting feelings that have been simmering for years, our pretend relationship starts feeling dangerously legit, because it’s hard to fake what’s always been real.
