Overview

As director of the local animal shelter, Brooke Redding is used to being the one doing the rescuing. But when a freak winter storm endangers her animals with sub-freezing temperatures and enough snow to constitute a Mississippi blizzard, she's in the market for a miracle.



Hayden Garrow wants nothing more than to be her hero. With four-wheel drive, an empty barn, and a crush on Brooke that goes back to junior high, he's got a plan to save all her furry charges. They've just got to survive icy roads, canine labor, and a pair of matchmaking octogenarians to get there.



What's the worst that could happen in this snowbound Southern romance?



This story is a crossover with the Wishful series.



So you know what you're getting into...this book is part of my Meet Cute Romance series. It is a novelette (little longer than a short story, shorter than a novella) about the first meeting of a romantic couple. Please read them with that in mind and do not judge the story as if it is intended to be a full novel. They are meant to be bite-sized romances that only hint at the HEA to come.

This is a wonderful, sweet meet cute romance story. It has great characters that are well developed and you can't help but fall in love with. It takes us back to the small town of Wishful, where Brook runs the animal rescue shelter. A winter storm has her dogs in need of help and firefighter Haden steps up to help. He has had a crush on Brook since Jr High and the chemistry between them is oh so strong. I loved reading this book and recommend highly.

Having returned to Wishful after many years away, Hayden a volunteer at the animal rescue shelter realizes that his grandparents old barn will make a perfect place to hold the remaining dogs from the shelter in the threatening winter storm. Unbeknownst to Hayden, Brooke who runs the animal shelter makes a wish at the infamous well in Wishful where hope springs eternal to find a way to take care of all the dogs that have not found foster homes in the upcoming storm. While Hayden has always known who Brooke was and is, Brooke sees him as just one of the volunteers until the dreaded and powerful ice and snow storm begins. Learning about each other and taking a chance is all what the storm is about. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This book came at the perfect time. 6 inches of snow and ice falling, no school or work? Perfect excuse to read! So fitting that the story was set around a snow storm. Kait does not disappoint. Of course it ended all too soon, I always want more! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Once Upon A Rescue Is the story of Brooke, the director of the local animal shelter, and Hayden, a wanna be hero with a lot to offer. Add in a Mississippi blizzard and icy roads and you have the makings of Kait’s latest Meet Cute. Great, quick read. Good characters, good story made me wishful that it would last a little longer.

Hayden to the rescue! With Kait’s Meet Cute Romance books I always wish the story would go on longer. Brooke and Hayden make a great couple and add in animals for a fun story. What more could you ask for. Hopefully we will hear more about them in upcoming books. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This novelette certainly lives up to the "cute" part of "meet cute romance"! The only way it could be better would be if it came with pictures of the animals (okay, the whole calendar)! So much fun to read! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I absolutely loved Once Upon A Rescue. It had a great meet cute and was something that we can all relate to. I have three rescues. To find an animal rescue at the middle of a love story moved me. Brooke and Hayden seem to be made for each other. They both love animals and loving each other makes logical sense. Whether you have a rescued pet or not, you will enjoy reading this book by Kait Nolan. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Brooke and Hayden have a mutual attraction to each other; what Brooke doesn't know is that he has liked her since junior high school. A big snowstorm is barrelling down on their town, and Brooke needs help, see she runs a animal rescue shelter, and the outdoor pens won't be warm enough. As if a gift from above, Hayden appears with the food she needs for the animals - but suggests for warmth they move the animals to his farm - he gets a big trailer, they load the animals and head out. On the way they help some old ladies (the casserole brigade - that's a whole 'nother story) out of a ditch. Time goes on, the storm hits - they really enjoy themselves. He's a nice guy, and she is a kind and giving girl - they're perfect for each other. Hayden finally comes clean with his affection for afar - and she agrees that she might feel the same way - needless to say they begin a relationship. More stuff happens in the book - should I mention 'hot firefighter calendar'...…...

Kait Nolan proves once again that she is the queen of wishes come true. When Brooke's life can't get any more hectic, along comes a knight in shining armor with his trusty steed. So, ok, it's a horse trailer but it's the same result. You may ask what horses have to do with puppies but you'll just have to read the story. I love it when the good guys (and gals) get what they deserve. In this, Kait never fails. Or maybe it's the fountain... Prepare for lots of oohs, aahs, and warm squishies but, most of all, prepare to enjoy this quickie! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

An enjoyable story from the meet-cute to the HEA. Hayden had so many swoon-worthy attributes that he was 'pert-near' perfect. What isn't to love about a kind, considerate man who will go out of his way to help animals. Add in the wonderful way he treats Brooke and...*sigh*

Sometimes, with short stories or novellas, it feels as if the story is rushed which leaves the readers with a feeling of not being fully satisfied at the end. But this was never the case here. Hayden's and Brooke's story was beautiful, realistic and engaging with well developed characters, well executed events in the plot and loads of love including the fluffy kind which adds to the charm. Highly recommended and happy reading! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I love the Meet Cute stories from Kait Nolan. In such a short time, I feel connected to the characters. Kait Nolan's gift is writing characters that I want to know. It was just the mood pick me up that I needed this week. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I love all things Wishful, so when we’re caught waiting for the next novel to come out, I adore having these little nuggets of perfection to tide us over. Hayden is a hero looking for a place to happen and he’s chosen Brooke, source of his childhood crush. This quick little read is a perfect example of the Wishful fountain at work, providing a miracle just when one is needed most. I can’t wait to see this pair get a full length story of their own because they’re just the cutest, most precious thing together. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author through Booksprout.

Amelia runs the animal rescue facility that needs lots of work. Hayden works in the feed and farm store and has a farm with a barn. He is also a volunteer fire fighter. And volunteers at the rescue facility. They live in Wishful where the winters are usually mild. Except this year there is a record snowfall coming. Having lived in the south with such winter weather, I know how much fun rain, covered with sleet, and then snow followed by more sleet can be, especially when driving. If you like puppies, dogs and cats. IF you like firemen. If you like saving cute animals. If you like watching a couple investigate their feelings for each other while caring for the animals in a big barn. This is the book for you!!!

Hayden is a quiet guy who has a crush on Brooke but doesn’t know how to start things moving forward.  Brooke has given up on men for a while and doesn’t see that Hayden has feelings for her and is doing everything in his power to show her he cares – except come right out and say it.  The impending storm and Brooke’s inability to find homes for the rescues at her shelter, had Hayden once again having a plan and showing her that he is a great guy. Brooke finally realizes this and realizes that she needs to end her dating freeze and takes that step. It is funny how others saw how much he cared for her, but Brooke could not as she wasn’t looking for a relationship. However the turn of events bring their feelings out and luckily they don't ignore them. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Hayden and Brooke. Two people brought together during a freak snow storm. They are perfect for each other! They both love animals and Hayden volunteers a the shelter Brooke runs. This is just the beginning. There was more heat in the rescue barn than was coming from the heaters. Can't wait for the next chapter in their story!!

A snowstorm in Mississippi throws Hannah and Hayden together. He was such a hero and so kind. She has sworn off guys but Hayden might change her mind. Loved how Hannah finally "sees" Hayden. This might be a short read but very well developed - really liked the ending. And who can resist puppies. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Once upon a rescue is a feel good story. Hayden Garrow is the total package. This was a quick read and just what I needed after a hard day at work. Kait always is able to wisp me away into an romantic escape that making you invested in her characters. I look forward in seeing Hayden and Brooke in other tales from the town of wishful.
