When you apologize to someone, don’t you expect them to acknowledge it, at least a little? These two are gunning for each other so hard the apologies just fly by unnoticed. Do you think maybe there’s a reason for that?


“Whoa there, don’t get all bent out of shape. I’m Clint Travers.” The stranger rested a hand on Hope’s withers. “I run some horses here from time to time. Didn’t mean to impugn your horsemanship, ma’am.”

“Well, fine.” Cassie pushed stray hair from her eyes. “Maybe I overreacted some.”

He ignored her attempt at apology. “So, this is the filly that’s created such a fuss around shedrow.”

“What do you mean? I didn’t know anyone noticed.”

“Not notice! You got to be kidding—or incredibly naive.”

Cassie clenched her teeth and glared at the stranger.

“Strike that last comment,” he said quickly. “I seem to be putting my foot in my mouth.”

“Apparently you’ve a large enough mouth for it to fit, with plenty of room to spare.”

High stakes, a fiery Irish redhead, her stunning racehorse, and a fiercely loyal rancher.

What happens when a fiercely loyal widowed half-Ute cowboy meets a fiery redhead with an Irish temper to match? Cassidy O’Hanlon – Cassie, to her friends – has set aside her Chicago career for six months to train racehorses for her dad after his stroke.

Furious the interloper has shipped in a ringer from the Chicago circuit to his Wyoming turf, Rancher/trainer Clint Travers sets out to put her in her place. Sparks fly immediately, but after their rocky start, the two quickly forge a passionate relationship, and he follows her to Chicago.

When it becomes clear someone is drugging Cassie’s horse, Clint sets out to solve the mystery, but storms off in a cloud of wounded pride when suspicions turn to him.

Can love trump pride?
