A novella for horse lovers and lovers of an unconventional romance.
It doesn’t take much to break a heart…
For Susan Topher it is much too easy: lose your horse to colic, find your fiancé in flagrante dilecto, and then your best friend marries a hunk for happily ever after. Ian, a riding student, shows Susan that the boy-man can ride a winning dressage test, sweeping Susan off her feet and out of her mind. But when opportunity knocks one must make the ultimate sacrifice. Promises are made but time and distance result in a switch in affections, leaving Susan alone and bereft. Her friends insist a vacation is just the thing to cure a broken heart.
It doesn’t take much to turn your world upside down …
…just a bad decision to take the hole on the rail and cause a near fatal crash. Manuel Velasquez, champion jockey, retires to Wyoming to train his sister’s string of reining horses. Manny has sworn off women but his sister hopes that one of the women Manny escorts on a pack trip into the Wind River Range might catch his eye.
Susan towers over Manny and over his heart, but she won’t give him the time of day. Distaff Cupids conspire but so far Manny has been left at the starting gate. A chance encounter, a glacial pool, warm sun and a lupine meadow form the backdrop for Susan to unlock her heart and Manny to win the race.
Annie and Grey Ghost and Shit-face are the steeds who play a pivotal role.
