He’s coming up on her blind side

How can Shelby Hawkley forgive Gage Jamero for bailing on her when she needed him most? He and her husband, Nick, were the best part of her life. Now her former best friend is back, shaking up the widowed wine harvester’s world. The safest bet is to protect herself. Except Gage is awakening feelings that are decidedly unfriend-like.

Shelby is the woman Gage has secretly loved since high school. Starting over—together—could be the best dream he’s ever had. If only he can find the courage to say what he should have said all those years ago.

Award winning, USA Today bestseller Melinda Curtis writes the Harmony Valley series of sweet and emotional romances for Harlequin Heartwarming, and the indie pubbed Bridesmaid series. Brenda Novak says: “Season of Change has found a place on my keeper shelf”. Melinda also writes independently published, hotter romances as Mel Curtis. Jayne Ann Krentz says of Blue Rules: “Sharp, sassy, modern version of a screwball comedy from Hollywood’s Golden Age except a lot hotter.”
 EXERPT

Shelby’s heart panged at the idea of anyone dumping the dog and leaving him behind. The look on his face—so lost and alone—returned to her. “I’m going to keep him.”
Gage put down his fork, despite it being wrapped with spaghetti. “Don’t rush into anything. You don’t know this dog. When he feels better, he’ll show you his true colors.”
Shelby drew a breath, preparing to argue, but Gage beat her to it.
“Don’t barnacle me, Shel. I’m serious. Normally, I’d jump for joy at someone adopting a stray. But when this dog is healthy, he’s going to put on another thirty to fifty pounds.” Gage shifted in his chair to face her. “Flynn Harris’ nephew, Truman, is only eight. He stopped by the clinic after you left. He has a little dog. Maybe you’ve seen Abby around.”
Shelby nodded.
“What if this Saint Bernard doesn’t like kids or other animals, Shel?”
“He will. I have a good feeling about him.” He’d been lost. She’d been lost. They had a connection. “You’ll make him better and you’ll see. He’s going to be perfect for me.”
Gage shook his head. “Dogs are like kids. They need your time. You have a demanding job.”
“Friendships take time, too, in case you’d forgotten,” Shelby countered. “I’d rather have a dog.”
“You’ve given up on relationships? That explains a lot.” Looking grim, Gage finally took a bite of spaghetti.
“I don’t…I haven’t…You know nothing.” Shelby tore off a piece of garlic bread and popped it into her mouth, muttering darkly, “Dead Gage.”
“What did you call me?” Gage’s volume nearly reached Grandpa’s decibel level.
Shelby felt a twinge of remorse. But it was just a twinge.
“Dogs, all mighty.” Grandpa leapt into the fray, louder than Gage. “You two used to be as inseparable as peanut butter and jelly. I haven’t heard one nice word exchanged between the two of you since Gage came back. Friends know when to give a person space and when to mend fences.”
Gage ignored Grandpa. His black brows drew low. “You called me Dead Gage?”
She swallowed the bread and lifted her chin unapologetically. “You left without a word and never looked back. You might just as well have been dead and buried in the cemetery, too.”
“That’s harsh.”
Shelby gave no ground. “So is the way you dumped me.”
