Added DiffLines:

* BlitheSpirit: Laura Townsend to the Crystal Falls veterinary clinic. She decorates for the holidays, brings in snacks for everyone and truly loves tending to the animals in the kennel. Isaiah constantly finds himself marveling at how much her very presence has made things brighter and warmer.


Added DiffLines:

* DontYouDarePityMe: A lot of the heroines are pathological about proving how strong and independent they are after the trauma they've suffered, but most notably Laura and Bethany. Laura even refuses to take the kennel keeper job unless Isaiah is hiring her based on her qualifications.

While her work is generally well-received among fans of the genre, others are quick to point out that her plotlines and characters aren't very original, [[http://www.mrsgiggles.com/ Mrs. Giggles]] especially.

* ImAManICan'tHelpIt: Tucker Grant gets into an argument with Ellie about this when she claims it's bullshit. Isaiah Coulter also falls victim to an erection from Belinda's unwanted advances in ''My Sunshine'', which leads her to pull a FalseRapeAccusation on him when Val catches them. Luckily, Val doesn't buy it.

* SurgeonsCanDoAutopsiesIfTheyWant: As an ob-gyn, Dr. Stevenson has no business [[spoiler:presiding over the care of a critically ill newborn]] -- that's an entirely different specialty. But having her do both not only cuts down on the number of characters important to the plot, it lets her kick some serious medical ass. ''Because'' she kicks so much ass, nobody cares.

[[note]]To Anderson's credit, Stevenson openly acknowledges that Stormy's care is out of her remit ''and'' only goes for it because a storm delays the actual neonatologist on call.[[/note]] But having her do both not only cuts down on the number of characters important to the plot, it lets her kick some serious medical ass. ''Because'' she kicks so much ass, nobody cares.

Added DiffLines:

* CollateralAngst: Works both ways, too. If something bad happens or has happened to the heroine the hero will wail and gnash his teeth over it, while anything that happens to the hero and/or his family sends the heroine into a whirlwind of tears and self-blame.

* AuthorFilibuster: A more benign variant; when Catherine drags her plot to a screeching halt to InfoDump, it's usually about some form of animal care, and she most definitely [[ShownTheirWork does do the research]]. In fact, some of her novels give readers important but little-known information about dealing with dogs and horses.
