Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Victoria Schade!



Romance and women’s fiction for readers who appreciate happily ever afters that include four paws.



If you want to hang with me you’ve got to be Team Dog. (Although I’m also cat-curious, so you might say that I swing both ways.) You enjoy a little angst thrown in before you reach your happily ever after (think uncompromising heroines and family drama), and you aren’t afraid of a few f-bombs along the way.


My ideal reader match for DOG FRIENDLY appreciates:

  • A heroine trying to find herself again
  • A sunshine love interest who helps her see the bright side of life
  • A foster dog that’s a sweetie in the sheets and a terror on the streets
  • A peek at veterinary life, including the good, the bad and the messy
  • A little sibling sparring
  • A picture-perfect Nantucket setting
  • A HEA that’ll hit you right in the feels


What to expect if we’re compatible:

  • Visiting spots like the English countryside, Nantucket, NYC, and film sets.
  • Big-hearted heroes who know how to make their woman happy. (We’ve got no time for alpha a-holes in our life.)
  • Canine characters who are more than just comic relief – these pups are part of the plot!
  • Gestures that range from intimate to grand but are always enough to secure a swoony HEA.

DOG FRIENDLY by Victoria Schade

Dog Friendly


Exhausted veterinarian Morgan Pearce is feeling overworked and under-thanked, so when two favorite clients ask her to watch their special needs senior dog in their Nantucket home, she jumps at the chance for a summer break. She hopes her time on the island will be a reset from the stress of her everyday life, but her chill vacation vibe takes a hit when she gets roped into fostering a challenging, anxious dog and helping plan the local rescue group’s glittery annual fundraiser.

Her trip starts to feel more like a vacation when Morgan begins falling for Nathan Keating, an irresistible entrepreneur who thinks every problem can be solved on a surfboard. Just as the summer is shaping up to be the magical refresh she needs, thanks to a fling that feels like the beginning of something real and Hudson, the foster dog who reminds her how much she loves her job, a visit from her estranged brother and the discovery of who Nathan really is changes everything. Morgan finds herself at a crossroads, trying to determine if mistakes from the past must define the future, or if she should forgive, forget, and grab hold of a chance to finally rescue herself.


Romance Comedy [Berkley, On Sale: June 28, 2022, Trade Size / e-Book, ISBN: 9780593437391 / eISBN: 9780593437391]
