Molly Wells is out of work, on the run, and almost broke -- but that won't stop her from doing what's right, even when that means stealing Sonora Sunset, the valuable racehorse her ex-husband is about to destroy. Fortunately, Jake Coulter, the horse whisperer Molly brought Sunset to after brutal beatings made him wild and dangerous, also believes that right and wrong are more important than the bottom line -- or the letter of the law. He knows Molly isn't telling him everything, but there's no way he'll return a terrified horse to the man who brutalized it. He even offers desperate Molly a job to cover expenses for the stallion and herself. He figures that any woman who was once married to the monster who hurt Sunset has every right to be wary around men. But, as the unexpected passion between Molly and Jake escalates, so does the risk to them both -- and to everything they treasure. Catherine Anderson has delivered another powerfully romantic, emotionally compelling contemporary love story.
