L.A. attorney and pet-sitter Kendra Ballantyne, Esq., has recently taken on a third job masterminding a new reality show. But things get messy when the hot new producer is suspected of murder. Wealthy dreamboat and pet supply magnate Dante DeFrancisco thinks Kendra's the cat's pajamas. So one of his conditions--before he signed on as producer of her new reality show, Animal Auditions, is that she dine with him. The meal is delicious and the kiss is steamy--so why does Kendra have a hunch Dante's up to something? Meanwhile, on Animal Auditions, pot-bellied pigs are to be judged by a panel. But things screech to a halt when a nasty judge is found strangled to death by a pig harness. The suspects include Kendra's cop friend, Ned, his sister . . . and Dante. For their sake--and that of the show--Kendra just work like a dog to clear their names. If only Dante didn't make such a sexy suspect.
