In this sequel to A Kiss Before Dawn, Chris Martel has recovered from her near fatal assault and has built Went Farm into a top-notch foaling farm. Under pressure from her partner Mary Jo Cavanaugh and her Gram, Chris hires Mitch Jordan to help with the additional workload. In the meantime, Mary Jo takes over Doc Hall’s equine veterinary practice. The extra responsibilities of running a business leaves Mary Jo exhausted and with too little time for Chris.
Chris and Mary Jo are feeling the stress in their relationship because of their non-connecting, busy lives. It doesn’t help that Mitch is single, cute, and exceptionally good with the horses. Mitch eases some of Chris’s loneliness and they become fast friends. But does Mitch want more? Can Chris and Mary Jo’s relationship survive this latest challenge to their life together?
