For Alex Ford, dressage is an oasis. In the stable, he can slip into his riding pants, shed the macho cowboy image, and feel like himself for a change.
For Cleo O''Shea, dressage is a fresh start. She''s got a new boarding school, absentee parents, and, best of all, no one to remember her past. . . .
They''re an unlikely pair. Cleo''s looking for love, but Alex has a secret he''s not ready to give up, and a flirtation with Cleo is the last thing on his mind. But you can''t find romance before you know real friendship, and sometimes the last person you''d ever think of as a friend ends up being the one you need the most.
Susan Juby''s trademark humor brings life and laughter to this remarkable story of relationships, mixed signals, and the soul-searching that sometimes takes two.
