Bobby Cameron is a cowboy through and through. An alpha male of the old school, his classic good looks have made women swoon on the racing circuit from Kentucky to Dubai. After inheriting Highwood, his father's magnificent but debt-ridden ranch in California's Santa Ynez Valley, Bobby travels wherever he's wanted, breaking horses for their wealthy owners and raising the cash he needs to protect his land. That's all he cares about, until he meets a young English girl named Milly Lockwood Groves.
The 17-year-old daughter of a millionaire Newmarket breeder, Milly has watched her odious older brother become a jockey, and pursue a career she knows should be hers. Forbidden to race because of a childhood accident and her mother's notions about unladylike behavior, Milly is still secretly determined to follow her dreams. Then Bobby Cameron strides into her life, and nothing is ever the same.
She accepts his offer to work for a year at Highwood, desperate to make a name for herself in racing, and for Bobby to see her as a woman.
Caught up in a world where unscrupulous horse owners and billionaire media moguls rub shoulders, and more, with oversexed racing widows and fiercely ambitious jockeys, Milly must discover if she has what it takes to be a winner, on the track, in the bedroom, and, ultimately, in the game of love.
