Stepdog - Promo & Giveaway

From NICOLE GALLAND, author of The Fool’s Tale, Godiva and I, Iago comes a disarmingly charming and warm-hearted romantic comedy about a woman, her dog, and the man who risks life and limb to prove he’s good enough for them both.
In STEPDOG Sara Renault fires Rory O’Connor from his part-time job at a Boston art museum, and in response, Rory—an Irish actor secretly nursing a crush on his beautiful boss—throws caution to the wind, leans over, and kisses her.  Now Sara and Rory are madly in love.

In a matter of weeks Sara and Rory go from being friendly work colleagues to a live-in couple, and it’s all grand . . . except for Sara’s dog, Cody, who had been a gift from Sara’s sociopath ex-boyfriend. Sara’s over-attachment to her dog is the only thing she and Rory fight about.

When Rory scores both his green card and the lead role in an upcoming TV pilot, he and Sara (and Cody) prepare to move to Los Angeles. But just before their departure, Cody is kidnapped by Sara’s ex—and it is entirely Rory’s fault. Sara is furious and broken-hearted. Desperate to get back into Sara’s good graces, Rory takes off and tracks Cody and the dog-napper to North Carolina. Faced with the unrelenting determination of a true villain who will stop at nothing to keep Sara’s dog, Rory crisscrosses the country on his quest to rescue Cody and convince Sara how much he loves her and her dog. 

In STEPDOG, NICOLE GALLAND shows off her lighter side, in a refreshing and hilarious romantic comedy, full of surprising twists as captivating as any thriller, that beg the question, how far would you go for the one you love?
