Romantic. Spicy. Humorous. Ben won't give up in his pursuit of Claire. However, Claire refuses to trust him. No matter how many times she comes close to giving in, she pulls back at the last moment. Does Ben have the patience to wait for her to say the words. Five years ago, Ben Saunders left Claire O'Neil a broken mess. Now, Ben--an elite horse-trainer--is back. And his one goal is to win back the elusive manager of the O'Neil stables. However, Claire has other plans. This time she's able to protect herself from his charm; his pursuit; his handsomeness. She has a secret weapon . . . her horse, Ju. But then the unthinkable happens, and Ju gets ill. And in the worst moments of Claire's life, Ju's survival hanging by a thread, she turns to the one man she needs, Ben. But, has Claire gone too far with her constant rejections? Has she pushed Ben to Gabby, the willowy blond who seems to be everywhere Ben is? Gabby's made it clear that Ben is her goal. And then there's Sean, the handsome veterinarian, who is always there for Claire. Will he be the reason Claire and Ben keep losing each other . . . or in Claire's darkest hour, will Ben finally be there when she needs him most?
