An ex-saddleseat rider with connections in Kentucky, she drops everything to embark on a new career as marketing director for a failing equestrian magazine.

But when Melanie shows up in his social circles and then in his barn, he can't seem to stay away. If their trust issues aren't bad enough, real danger in the form of former lovers and stalkers threaten to keep them apart. Will Melanie and Jake be able to overcome their obstacles and find their way to each other? A supporting cast of quirky friends and horse people are woven into this story with a bit of humor, a bit of danger and a lot of heat. This is a stand alone novel, though there may be further adventures for Jake and Melanie in the future. Not recommended for under 18. Strong sexual content."
