Searching for Rescue

Redwood Coast Rescue Book 1


He has nothing to live for.

Zak Hendricks has a reputation—a black-ops soldier willing to take on the hardest, dirtiest, most suicidal missions. But when his final mission goes sideways, he’s discharged back to his hometown of Steam Valley, CA, with half a leg and a bad attitude.

She has everything to fight for.

Dog trainer Anna Rawlings has done her level best to avoid Zak since he crushed her teenage heart, but then he’s court-ordered to enroll in her Paws for Vets program at Redwood Coast Rescue, and she has no choice but to help him. Because if she can’t rehabilitate the town’s most notorious bad boy, she’ll lose everything she’s worked so hard to build.

Can an unpredictable K9, marked for death, rescue them both?

Zak doesn’t want a service animal any more than Ranger, a former military working dog, wants to become one, but they both love Anna and she’s landed in the crosshairs of an obsessive killer. Now, to keep her safe, the damaged soldier and unruly K9 have to learn to trust each other–and the entire Redwood Coast Rescue team.

Searching for Rescue is the first book in the Redwood Coast Rescue romantic suspense series, but it can be read as a standalone. If you like broody, damaged former military men with quirky canine partners, and the kick-ass women who bring them to heel, then you’ll love this sizzling, action-packed adventure by Tonya Burrows!

No one, and I mean no one, can write better adrenaline-fueled bad-assery than Tonya Burrows!

Scarred Not Broken

If you’ve read my books, you know I love a scarred character. Sometimes the scars are on their body. Sometimes in their hearts. For a long time, I called my characters “broken.” Until last year, my author tag line was “even the broken deserve a happily ever after.”...
