Now for a blurb and excerpt:

Drawn together by their love of animals, Aria De Luca and Caleb Hawkins burn for each other. They never suspected that malignant forces around them were successfully plotting Caleb’s ruin from the moment he entered her life. When the flood of a century strikes Aria’s hometown, an alienated Caleb is all that stands between her and catastrophic loss.

Last Week:
The doctor’s eyes widened just a touch. “You must have come straight here.” 

“I did. Like I said, it was important to me to see that she was okay.” 

Dr. De Luca took a big pull on her soft drink. “The receptionist at the Pine City shelter told me that the director had offered you a job when your sentence was over.”

He nodded. “That’ s right. She did, but…” How could he make her see? What words could describe his despair over the loss of every single freedom he had? Someone else had told him when to go to bed and when to get up. Meals consisted of something someone else said you should eat. His gaze fell to the blue denim shirt he wore. It was the first thing he’d had to wear in over three years that wasn’t regulation prison issue. Unless you’d been in the same situation, you’d never understand why he didn’t want to work there.

The doctor’s next words blew him out of the water. “You still feel like a prisoner there, don’t you?”

He laughed at himself. "And here I was thinking nobody could understand that."

This week
He laughed at himself. “And here I was thinking nobody could understand that.”

“It’s the way I’d feel,” she assured him. She assessed him for a moment. “We have a girl out on maternity leave. Would you be interested in filling in here until she comes back? We’re looking at a six week time frame.”

Were vets and animal shelter directors all nice people, or had he gotten lucky to meet two women willing to give him a s econd chance? He should probably head on over to Greenville, but the prospect held little appeal. Peaches sighed and licked his hand again.
