Lord Hairy

Pettibone School for Young Ladies - Book 3

Short Story in Tails of Love Anthology

By Donna MacMeans

Berkley Sensation - June 2009

Historical Romance

Ten authors coming together and providing short stories for an anthology. Ten short stories with both romance and animals. Tails of Love is an anthology by authors united together with their love of animals in support of an animal shelter.

Hannah Waverly didn't believe the tales of a hellhound. Then she went walking alone in the woods, and was chased. Only when the basket of food overturned did the culprit reveal himself as a giant dog.

She hadn't heard of anyone owning such a dog, and she wasn't about to go ask the camping gypsies. So she took him home. This only caused further mayhem to the point that Hannah was forbidden to attend the dance being held by Lord Ashton. And just like Cinderella, Hannah's friends come forward to help her go to the dance.

Lord Hairy was a sweet story of a young woman living in the shadow of her stepmother. Used to the insults from her stepmother, Hannah hopes to simply visit with her friends at the dance, never expecting to find love. I enjoyed visiting with these students from the Pettibone School for Young Ladies.

Included in Tails of Love are: Man's Best Friend by Lori Foster, A Knotty Tail by Stella Cameron, Norah's Arc by Kate Angell, The Pursuit of Happiness by Dianne Castell, Atticus Saves Lisa by Ann Christopher, Rescue Me by Marcia James, Lord Hairy by Donna MacMeans, Danny's Dog by Sarah McCarty, Scaredy Cat by Patricia Sargeant, and A Man, A Woman, and Haggis by Sue-Ellen Welfonder.
