Klein’s K-9s Service Dogs Series

The first in the Klein’s K-9s novella series is “Racing Hearts“…

Stock car legend, Tom “Torque” Tyler, faces a bleak future following an off-track car wreck. Thanks to a traumatic head injury, he’s developed epileptic seizures and may never drive again. To avoid tabloid reporters and well-meaning friends, Tom holes up in a cottage surrounded by high walls. Now he just needs to figure out the rest of his life.

Service dog trainer and old friend, Meg Klein, shows up on Tom’s doorstep with a seizure response dog. Bob, a tiny but talented canine, makes it almost impossible for Tom to maintain his black mood. And Meg is determined to drag her high-school crush out of his self-imposed solitude. But will the paparazzi ruin her best-laid plans?

Two hearts racing to one goal with the help of a little furry friend, wonderful characters… Great read!” 5-star Amazon Review

And it has a great ending that you won’t want to miss.” – Jacqueline Driggers, Jackie’s Book Reviews

8 Hounds a-Howling,” a light-hearted holiday romance, is the second Klein’s K-9s novella…

Celebrity photographer “Jax” Jackson volunteers to shoot the Klein’s K-9s service dog facility’s fundraising calendar. His agenda: Convince past love and calendar coordinator Amy Walters to give him a second chance.

Producing the dog-themed “12 Days of Christmas” calendar includes dodging dive-bombing birds, tackling runaway pigs, and handling 78 dogs who’d rather play than pose. In the midst of the chaos, will the reunited lovers find their happily ever after?


Great Christmas romance. The chapter titles are simply delightful and add to the reading fun. ….this is simply a wonderful book.” Jacqueline Driggers, Romance Blogger & Reviewer

The third Klein’s K-9s’ novella is “Nothing But a Hound Dog“…

After a night of raucous partying, country music star Ryan “Rowdy” Gates is sentenced to community service at the Jenkins Animal Shelter. To his surprise, he bonds with the caring shelter workers and with a tiny, abandoned Basset Hound puppy. Cindi Landon, shelter director and his high school crush, offers Ryan something he’s never had—a home, a family, and unconditional love.

It is Marcia James’ well-written and well-conceived characters that put on the real charm in a romance that’s as laid back and comfortable as your favorite pair of faded old blue jeans. I really enjoyed this romance story—After all, who wouldn’t love to read about an unexpected romantic relationship amid a kit and kaboodle of playful puppies and fluffy kittens…?” – IHIBRP 5-Star Recommended Read, J.B. Richards

Well, this writer has done it again! She’s written another totally charming romance involving a hunky guy and a cute doggie. This is a book you should put on your must read list. Actually, you should put the whole series on your must read list! I’ve read 3 books in this series so far, and loved each one. The writer has a unique gift for including animals in her books, and for writing wonderful romance stories. I would heartily recommend this book. 5 enthusiastic stars.” – Jackie’s Book Reviews

The fourth Klein’s K-9s novella is “Scrooge & the Secret Santa”…

Police dog trainer Patton Carter is a thorn the size of a tree branch in Faith Harman’s side. In addition to her physical therapist day job, Faith teaches therapy dog classes, which Patton dismisses as unimportant. Then Fate intervenes, and he’s sidelined with a knee replacement. Will spending time with Faith and her therapy dog open his eyes and his heart?

“The appeal of Marcia James’ heartwarming and sexy holiday romantic comedy lies in the stark contrast between Faith, a cheery, girl-next-door, physical therapist/service dog trainer and Patton, a handsome but standoffish former military man and police dog trainer. In a brilliant plotline decision, James enlists two spunky canines to provide contrast to her two main protagonists, as well as a great bit of comic relief. I highly recommend this read for anyone who loves animals, romantic comedies, and feel-good holiday romance novels.” –IHIBRP Recommended Review
