Rescue Road

Pet Rescue Romance Book 1

by Gayle M. Irwin

Genre: Sweet Contemporary Romance 



Freelance writer Rhiann Kelly shelved romance for years. Her dream of starting an animal sanctuary takes deep roots after finding the perfect location in southwestern Montana and purchasing the property for back taxes.

Emergency medical technician Levi Butler knows his elderly friend left the ranch to him in his will. Levi anxiously awaits the probate to be complete so he can plan his retirement and begin his dream of raising and selling horses.

When Rhiann and Levi find each other at the ranch simultaneously, sparks fly - and not the romantic kind. Yet their mutual attraction deepens, especially after Levi finds Rhiann injured in an accident.

Meantime, land developer Dallas Patterson sets his sights on charming Rhiann to obtain the land.

Can Rhiann and Levi work together to detour Patterson and find a solution in which neither needs to give up their dream, or will the fence line of their hearts – and the property - separate them forever?

Can their broken paths weave their hearts together as they travel the rescue road?

He had no name; he was just a number. The little Shih Tzu lived in a small cage during the first three years of his life and was let out only now and again to do what un-neutered animals do during certain times of the year. He had little positive human interaction, and the other dogs nearby were out of reach so that no puppy play happened … except when the people let him spend time with the females who were receptive to his advances. 

One day, that all changed. He and the other dogs used by this breeder were rescued and taken to a Nebraska animal sanctuary. Each received a name; he was christened ‘Stormy.’ He and his companions received much-needed medical attention and healthy food. The dogs discovered soft grass for the first time and learned to interact with each other in fun-filled play. They also learned people could be compassionate and kind. 

My husband and I adopted the black and white male Shih Tzu in September 2017. We re-named this puppy mill survivor ‘Jeremiah,’ and though he had to learn much about living in a home, he is now a sweet lap dog, a companion walker, and a co-pilot in the car. He is also the mascot in my first novel, Rescue Road as the primary female character’s dog ‘Jax.’ Through my book, we teach people about the need for and the joys and challenges of pet rescue and adoption. 

During National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month in October, the e-book version of Rescue Road will be on sale for just $1.99 and a portion of the month’s sales will be donated to the rescue organization that rescued Jeremiah.
