The Lonely Hearts Rescue is an anthology of lesbian romance stories co-written with Nell Stark and Morgan Lee Miller set during hurricane season at an animal rescue shelter on the Gulf Coast.
When a hurricane hits the Gulf Coast, the animals at the Lonely Hearts Rescue Shelter need love, and so do the humans who adopt them.
Something About You by Morgan Lee Miller. After rescuing a cat stranded in the hurricane, animal control officer Reese Shepard is adamant about finding shy, timid Apollo the best forever home. When she discovers Apollo giving cheek rubs to Hannah Marsh, Reese’s high school crush, she’s captivated by her all over again.
Force of Nature by Missouri Vaun. Rebekah Hawks has stepped in to help with hurricane disaster relief. Challenges are no match for Rebekah. At least until she agreed to foster an impossible dog. Rebekah has no choice but to seek the aid of handsome local dog trainer Rory Maclaren. But who is training whom?
Test of Faith by Nell Stark. Rescuing a dog is a dream come true for Faith Kincaid—and a chance to prove to herself that she really can, in the words of her therapist, “commit to commitment.” When Faith takes her new best friend, Pinoe, to the vet, she can’t stop staring at Dr. Delphine Wu. Del is completely out of Faith’s league. Or is she?

Reviews for The Lonely Hearts Rescue
Three novellas in one book! All three are sapphic love stories and nice, quick reads. What ties them all together is the rescue where they all either work or go to adopt animals saved during a recent hurricane.
These stories were sweet and fun to read. Animal rescue is very near and dear to my heart, and I loved how all three stories took place around the same shelter. —Jasmine Shouse
