Montana Hendrix finally found her niche in life. Her other
two triplet sisters have always known what they wanted, but
not Montana. Working with therapy dogs suits her quite
well. As she and Fluffy, a Golden Retriever/Lab mix, are
walking through town, a little boy attracts the dog's
attention and Fluffy escapes from Montana. She chases him
and catches up with him just in time to see him fly through
the doors of the local hospital. Inside she finds
overturned carts, chairs and one very angry doctor.
Dr. Simon Bradley yells at Montana to take her dog and
leave immediately. She hopes she has not jeopardized her
job. Simon is a visiting surgeon who is helping burn
victims, and one of his patients is not responding well to
treatment. However, Kalinda's one response since arriving
at the hospital is to ask about the dog that intruded that
day. When Simon learns this, he contacts Montana's boss and
asks about getting a dog to visit Kalinda. Perhaps this is
what she needs to jump-start the healing process.
Montana chooses a small poodle to bring to Kalinda. Of
course, coming to the hospital means she will have to see
Dr. Bradley again. This encounter proves to be somewhat
different. There is an immediate physical chemistry between
them; something so electrifying that Simon is shaken. He
can't get Montana out of his mind. Simon doesn't do
relationships. He travels from place to place, helping
people heal and then moves on.
Meanwhile, Montana is given the task, by Fool's Gold's
mayor, of trying to get Simon to stay on at the hospital
permanently. She certainly doesn't mind the task. The awful
scars running up Simon's neck and onto his face don't deter
Montana. He's an intriguing man she wants to get to know
better and learn the story behind the scars.
Situations keep placing Simon and Montana close to each
other and soon they cannot deny the physical pull. A
relationship that Simon does not want begins to bud. He
makes his plans very clear to Montana, but she hopes to
change his mind, and not just because the mayor asked her
to do the town a favor. Will Simon accept Montana's gift of
love, or will he continue to run?

Montana Hendrix has found her calling – working with therapy
dogs. With a career she loves in a hometown she adores,
she’s finally ready to look for her own happily ever after.
Could one of her dogs help her find Mr. Right…or maybe Dr.
Surgeon Simon Bradley prefers the sterility of the
hospital to the messiness of real life, especially when real
life includes an accident-prone mutt and a woman whose
kisses make him want what he knows he can’t have. Scarred
since childhood, he avoids emotional entanglement by moving
from place to place to heal children who need his skillful
touch. Can his growing feelings for Montana lead him to find
a home in Fool’s Gold, or will he walk away, taking her
broken heart with him?
Great review! I really loved this book. I was kind of teasing when I told my hubs I'm going to post a review on amazon and its just going to be pink puffy hearts. This is my new favorite in the series. (Jennifer Hutson 6:14pm August 24, 2011)
Another trip to Fool's Gold is just what I needed in a week with a lot of ups and downs in my personal life. It was nice to know that the book I was reading...Only Yours was going to be the Calgon Moment that would take me away from it all.
When you read Only Yours it's hard to name a favorite moment, character, or scene...everything about Only Yours was true gold and not Fool's Gold! (Sandi Shilhanek 6:13pm August 26, 2011)
