PASSAGE FROM CHAPTER 2....It made Lady Evelyn shudder to imagine what Bullmina had suffered in the dogfight pits. She reached down and caressed Bullmina's head, gently caressing the scars where the fur no longer grew on her forehead and jowls. Then she scratched behind Bullmina's right ear. Part of it was gone, bitten and torn off in one of Roger and Rigel Neemy's dogfights. There was another massive scar on Bullmina's neck, between her shoulder blades, a medal from a match she barely won. Trevor Sheffield, Bullmina's trainer at the Neemy Kennels, now worked for the Waverlys and told Lady Evelyn that Bullmina had lost a lot of blood in that particular match. Luckily, a veterinarian had been close by to help Trevor sew up the wound; they had to work quickly or Bulmina would have bled to death.

Passage from Chapter 19
Andrew Cameron, head rescue trainer, asked for a big ladle of water to quench his thirst as he waited until Lisette and Matthew were well out of sight. He threw a bit of the water on the back of his neck and mopped it off with a handkerchief.  "All right, men," he exhaled deeply.  "As ya can see, well 'ave ta step lively.  We'll open the back gate o' the rollin' crate 'n lasso 'im with the double-choke 'n leads from behind.  Once 'e's as stable as we can get 'im, I'll be wantin' a third lead on 'im as a precaution before we can take 'im out.  'E goes straight ta 'is kennel.  The one in the back corner, which Trevor's presently makin' ready.  Jimmy-Boy's the strongest, 'n 'e's puttin' 'is leather arm guards on.  Say a little prayer, mates."

When Lady Evelyn decides to open a "no-kill" rescue shelter at Chathamworthshire, she jeopardizes more than just her marriage to the Duke. When she takes in ailing Lisette St. Germaine and wounded Matthew Connors, she infuriates her arrogant niece, Beatrice. And her gifted young trainer, Trevor Sheffield, thinks she has finally gone too far when she brings Jared McCreath's Cassius to the estate. Chaos soon erupts, and the rescuers become the rescued with strength and forgiveness coming for the most unlikely sources, and resentment giving way to a renewed sense of purpose - all inspired by the courage of an aging Bullmina, and her unforgettable legacy.

My warmest thanks to everyone who sent in photos to help Leslie illustrate the chapters.

I really do NOT want to put too many teasers on this site because the sequel speaks for itself...but I will, if people request them, to get their friends interested. Thanks for all your don't realize how long it takes to write a book, especially one that is illustrated. Thanks to everyone is advance for their support, Lita.
