Twenty-four-year-old Kylie Reed has always been a rule follower. Organized and cautious to a fault, her dreams for life are often filed away for future use-when she has a house, when she meets her future husband, when she has been at her visual display job at a chic Dallas boutique longer. Kylie always has a reason for living her life in the future, not in the present, and fears not living her life to the fullest and reaching her dream of becoming a fashion designer. The only exception to rules, of course, would be running away with Prince Harry. But living in Dallas and not knowing Prince Harry make this a non-option. Or does it? Because when Kylie accidentally falls into the lap of a gorgeous ginger guy-yes, even more gorgeous than the real Prince Harry-all bets are off. Kylie's life takes some unexpected twists and turns thanks to this encounter. Could this stranger be the one to show Kylie how to live in the present?

She never dreamed that this decision would not only change her life but the future of the British monarchy as well. Her response leads Clementine to the mysterious CP Chadwick, a British man studying history at Cambridge. Clementine finds CP charming, smart, and unlike any man she's ever met. Most of all, when she confides her medical past to CP, his perception of her doesn't change. He doesn't treat her as fragile like her parents do.

Wary of others, he's kept himself closed off from the world--until he lets Clementine in.

He’s mastered the breakout play on the ice. She’s still trying to break out of her shell. When Adam first lays eyes on Ally in the dark, country-themed bar, he immediately knows that he’s going to take that innocent-looking beauty home for the night. When she resists his charms and cheesy one-liners, he becomes even more determined to win her over. After all, Adam Harris didn’t make it onto the Dallas Comets’ roster without hearing the word “no.” No one believed he’d get drafted or play a game in the NHL, but he proved his critics all wrong. He knows that he’s got to capitalize on his scoring chances because they don’t come around very often. Allison Forrester isn’t as naïve as Adam thinks she is. She moved to Dallas looking for a new beginning, and she doesn’t want to mess up her hard work by having a one-night fling with some wannabe hotshot hockey player—no matter how attractive he may be. However, Adam has never accepted “no” as an answer, and he plans to keep asking Ally out until she finally says “yes.” If they can set aside their differences for a night, maybe they can both break out of their ruts—and realize they have more in common than they thought.

“You’ll call this sentimental–perhaps–but then a dog somehow represents the private side of life, the play side,” Virginia Woolf confessed to a friend. And it is this private, playful side, the richness and power of the bond between five great women writers and their dogs, that Maureen Adams celebrates in this deeply engaging book. In Shaggy Muses, we visit Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Flush, the golden Cocker Spaniel who danced the poet away from death, back to life and human love. We roam the wild Yorkshire moors with Emily Brontë, whose fierce Mastiff mix, Keeper, provided a safe and loving outlet for the writer’s equally fierce spirit. We enter the creative sanctum of Emily Dickinson, which she shared only with Carlo, the gentle, giant Newfoundland who soothed her emotional terrors. We mingle with Edith Wharton, whose ever-faithful Pekes warmed her lonely heart during her restless travels among Europe and America’ s social and intellectual elite. We are privileged guests in the fragile universe of Virginia Woolf, who depended for emotional support and sanity not only on her human loved ones but also on her dogs, especially Pinka–a gift from her lover, Vita Sackville-West–a black Cocker Spaniel who became a strong, bright thread in the fabric of Virginia and Leonard Woolf’s life together. Based on diaries, letters, and other contemporary accounts–and featuring many illustrations of the writers and their dogs– these five miniature biographies allow us unparalleled intimacy with women of genius in their hours of domestic ease and inner vulnerability. Shaggy Muses also enchants us with a pack of new friends: Flush, Keeper, Carlo, Foxy, Linky, Grizzle, Pinka, and all the other devoted canines who loved and served these great writers.
