Alice Tremont is a herpetologist who loves snakes, studies them, takes pictures of them and protects them on her property where she lives in Blake's Folly, Nevada. She also takes care of unwanted dogs. Jace Constant is a writer from Chicago. He's a socialite, art type of person that enjoys the finer things in life, until he finds himself in a situation that brings him to Alice Tremont's door.
Jace is doing the right thing, yet Alice doesn't believe a word he's telling her about the dog he found. Jace leaves, leaving the dog with Alice. To her surprise, Jace returns and rents a room in her home. Sparks begin to fly between them, until she tells him she is involved with Brad Mace the rancher. Well, that's after he tells her there's a women in Chicago, but there's still an attraction and they won't act on it. Jace doesn't believe her until he meets the other man. Jace knows Alice is lying and she comes clean. This turns out to be a very sensual night for the two of them.
Their problem is Jace lives in Chicago. Alice will never ask him to stay and vice versa. So how can they make this work?
I thought this was a very sweet story. Alice is very passionate about animals and the care of them. I believe Jace also learned to appreciate them, once she showed him how. If you love animals or are looking for a light romantic read, I would recommend reading this book. The characters in this book are down to earth.
