What does a down and out horse trainer whose family fortunes have hit the skids do when an injury that is likely to become permanent takes her away from her beloved horses? She finds herself a cause. And Elizabeth Shelburne thinks she has a great one in trying to prevent urban blight from hitting the small lake community town in which she grew up.
Her nemesis in this fight is none other than super wealthy businessman Vidar Gulbrandt, with whom she has a long history. Despite the fact he's always wanted her, he has also always thought she was rather spoiled and he's not about to let her ruin his deal with her shenanigans while he attempts to court her in his strictly dominant fashion.
Vidar uses more than his hand to get a hold of his lady. But the secret that Vidar is hiding from Liz is something she could never have imagined in a thousand years, something that will change her life and make her his forever wife.
