2014 EPIC Award Finalist
Amy Dover’s dream of training horses has come with a price. The pressures of her career - not to mention an oppressive husband and business partner - have sucked out all the joy the horses used to bring her. After her husband’s sudden death, Amy leaves that world behind and takes a job as a farmhand so she can find her passion - and herself.
Dustin King has more than enough on his plate. He’s got a full barn and a packed training roster that includes rescued horses who need more attention than he can spare. The last thing he wants to deal with is a woman who’s unnervingly indifferent toward horses, no matter how attractive she is.
Except Amy isn’t as indifferent as Dustin thought. In fact, working with two traumatized horses might be just what she needs, and as Amy and Dustin bond with the rescued horses, they also bond with each other. Dustin reignites something else Amy thought she’d lost forever. No matter how much they try to resist, the spark that draws them together keeps getting hotter.
But Amy has known from the beginning that she’ll one day go back to her old life. She just didn’t plan on having someone to leave behind this time....
