Discovering Authors and Romance Stories Featuring Pets

Feb 24, 2022 by Gayle M Irwin

I love discovering new authors and books, and when they write in a similar genre as me, I'm even more excited!

Recently, I discovered Mara Wells, who features dogs in her romance stories, some of which shine with humor. In fact, Publishers Weekly noted about the first book in her Fur Haven Dog Park series, "Full of humor and heart... Animal lovers will delight in the large cast of canine supporting characters in this well-paced romance."

I purchased several in this series, including the first book, Cold Nose, Warm Heart, and I look forward to reading them this spring.

If you are a cat lover, I highly recommend two authors: Kris Bock and Karen Drew. Kris' series The Cat Cafe Collection, weaves some mystery and drama into each story. These sweet romances are even sweeter thanks to the cat rescues found amid the pages. Find her books by visiting her Amazon page here:

Karen Drew weaves pet rescue into her romance stories, too. Her Furs Hill sweet romance collection features dogs and cats and is available on Kindle here:

Karen is one of many authors taking part in a special Book Funnel promotion called Pet Sidekicks.
