It’s all fun and games until somebody ends up in a cone: Gives “animal lovers a glimpse into a veterinarian’s life . . . sometimes humorous, often poignant” (Suzanne Clothier, author of Bones Would Rain from the Sky: Deepening Our Relationships with Dogs). Physicians used to make house calls. Today, a few veterinarians still do, including Duncan MacVean, DVM. His patients range from cats and dogs to pigs and lizards—each of them a unique personality. Sometimes, without warning, MacVean finds himself in odd situations: stepping into a basement full of free-flying bats or struck speechless by a pig who loves opera so much that she falls into a trance. The hilarious and the heartbreaking come together in this collection of true tales, all gathered from his lifelong career. Whether he’s riding backward atop a potbelly pig that bucks and kicks its way down the hall, knocking over a china cabinet in the process, or talking to a pet owner with terminal cancer who wonders whether her beloved cat and dog will be with her in the afterlife, he unspools a tale of dedication to the animals of this earth and compassion for their human caretakers—and as he journeys from house to house, he brings readers along for the ride. “Whether happy or sad, humorous or somewhat shocking, these real-life stories about pets and other animals will draw in readers . . . Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

The Carolina Cougars keep fighting for love as the Second Chances series from bestselling author L. P. Dover continues! In Defending Hayden, a damaged football star teams up with the only woman who can take the pain away. No one’s tougher than Carolina Cougars linebacker Derek McLaughlin. But when a fatal car accident claims the life of his girlfriend, Derek finds himself caught in a destructive spiral of drugs, alcohol, and meaningless sex. But not even a string of one-night stands can ease the hurt. Football is all he has left. Then fate leads him back to the scene of the crash, and into the arms of a kind, gorgeous woman who sees past his façade to the man he once was . . . and can be again. When a chance roadside encounter brings Derek into her life, veterinarian Hayden Hunter isn’t fooled by his bad attitude: All bark and no bite, he’s hiding a wounded heart beneath that gruff demeanor. And Hayden wants to be the one to kiss it all better. Soon they both find that a dose of passion is potent medicine. But when a hidden enemy lashes out at Hayden, Derek steps up to do what he does best: put his body on the line in the name of love. Don’t miss any of New York Times bestselling author L. P. Dover’s red-hot Breakaway novels: HARD STICK | BLOCKED Or these heartwarming Second Chances romances: CATCHING SUMMER | DEFENDING HAYDEN | INTENDED FOR BRISTOL “L. P. Dover knows how to create the men who make us swoon, the book boyfriends we all want.”—New York Times bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin Praise for Defending Hayden “L. P. Dover delivers a sexy and intriguing romance with Defending Hayden, sure to get your heart beating.”—New York Times bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin “Sexy and emotional with characters you will root for, Defending Hayden is a great addition to the Second Chances series!”—Elisabeth Barrett, author of the Return to Briarwood series “Defending Hayden is a smart and heartwarming story that is impossible to put down. Throw in a sexy football player and some lovable animals and you’re all set.”—Stina Lindenblatt, author of This One Moment “This book had the perfect balance of sadness and hope. It definitely made me tear up, but it also made me laugh. And get all up on the edge of my seat. There are some great side characters, a few who will be interesting to see in future books (hopefully) and just some that gave the book a great personality. Can’t wait to see what else happens in this series, and at some point, I’ll go back and read the previous books that I missed.”—The Romance Factor “Ms. Dover has found herself a new fan with Defending Hayden.”—Cat’s Reviews Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Reconciling the scientific principles of medicine with the love essential for meaningful care is not an easy task, but it is one that Gregory L. Fricchione performs masterfully in Compassion and Healing in Medicine and Society. At the core of this book is a thought-provoking analysis of the relationship between evolutionary science and neuroscience. Fricchione theorizes that the cries for attachment made by seriously ill patients reflect an underlying evolutionary tenet called the separation challenge–attachment solution process. The pleadings of patients, he explains, are verbal expressions of the history of evolution itself. By exploring the roots of a patient’s attachment needs, we come face to face with a critical component of natural selection and the evolutionary process. Medicine engages with the separation challenge–attachment solution process on many levels of scientific knowledge and human meaning and healing. Fricchione applies these concepts to medical care and encourages physicians to fully understand them so they can better treat their patients. Compassionate humanistic care promotes physical, emotional, and spiritual healing precisely because it is consonant with how life, the brain, and humanity have evolved. It is therefore not a luxury of modern medical care but an essential part of it. Fricchione advocates an attachment-based medical system, one in which physicians evaluate stress and resiliency and prescribe an integrative treatment plan for the whole person designed to accentuate the propensity to health. There is a wisdom or perennial philosophy based on compassionate love that, Fricchione stresses, the medical community must take advantage of in designing future health care—and society must appreciate as it faces its separation challenges.
