The Love Dog
Fired from her job as a paralegal, Samantha Novak is in trouble. When "Telltale," a Hollywood tabloid, asks her to write an expose on the reality television dating show, "The Love Dog," Samantha is thrilled. She's always dreamed of being a writer, and the fat paycheck won't hurt. After being recently left at the altar, she's not too keen on love either. Hired as the canine star's handler, Samantha finds that digging up dirt on set is harder then she thought. Apollo, the show's star, is a sweet golden retriever who takes his job as the "love dog" very seriously. He only wants to help couples fall in love and make everyone on set happy. Mason Hall, the show's producer and leading man, is down to earth, charming, and... very attractive. If Samantha doesn't reveal to the world that the reality show isn't exactly "real," her new career will be over before it starts. But when she falls in love with Apollo and Mason, will she still have the heart to expose "The Love Dog's" dirty secrets? Elsa Watson returns with another charming "tail"!
