The Dogfather is a contemporary romance series from New York Times bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire celebrating what she loves most: hot guys, great dogs, big families...and true love. And a portion of the proceeds from every book in the series will be donated to the Alaqua Animal Refuge in the author's home state of Florida! The "cover dogs" are all rescues from Alaqua, where the covers are photographed for the series!

Bad to the Bone
Trace Bancroft has been in prison for fourteen years paying for a mistake that cost a man his life. Now released, Trace heads back to Bitter Bark with his mutt, Meatball, and runs into Daniel Kilcannon, who offers to provide some medical care for the dog. Trace knows that would mean seeing Molly Kilcannon, a girl who shared one crazy night with him before his life took a turn for the worst. But when Meatball's illness intensifies, Trace has no choice. He has to face Molly again, and pray she'll save his dog, no matter what their history.

When Trace Bancroft arrives at Waterford Farm with a critically ill dog, Molly Kilcannon's entire world is rocked to the core. Firmly believing Trace died in a bar fight years ago, Molly never told anyone that the bad boy of Bitter Bark was the father of Prudence Kilcannon, her very good thirteen-year-old daughter. But Molly has promised to tell Pru the truth about her conception, and now that truth is a living, breathing ex-con whose very existence could change everything, including a precious mother-daughter relationship.

It doesn't take long for Molly to realize there's more to this sexy man than his dark past and tattooed arms. And while the realization that he's a father is the best thing to ever happen to him, Trace doubts anything could make him worthy of Pru or her spirited veterinarian mother. As they nurse Meatball back to health and grow ever closer, Trace and Molly have to decide when and how to tell Pru the truth. But will the secret that binds their hearts be the very thing that breaks them apart?

The Dogfather Series
Daniel Kilcannon is known as "The Dogfather" for a reason. It's not just his renowned skills as a veterinarian, his tremendous love of dogs, or the fact that he has turned his homestead in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains into a world class dog training and rescue facility. Just ask his six grown children who run Waterford Farm for him, and they'll tell you that their father's nickname is due to his uncanny ability to pull a few strings to get what he wants. And what he wants is for his four sons and two daughters to find the kind of life-changing love he had with his dearly departed wife, Annie. This old dog has a few new tricks... and he'll use them to see his pack all settled into their happily ever afters!

Praise for The Dogfather Series

"This series has all my favorite pulls, a slow romantic build up, large family, small town, and rescues dogs."
-Book Palace

"If you love Romance and dogs, then you should be enjoying this series yourself. You'll be hooked. I'd recommend this one for any Romance reader who enjoys complex stories, believable, realistic characters and those adorable pups no matter their age."
-Romance is Ageless

"Romances don't get much more heartwarming than this, folks. You'll definitely need a box of tissues at the ready, but don't be surprised to also find yourself laughing along with the Kilcannon family and their funny antics. I honestly can't recommend this highly enough."
-Harlequin Junkies
