The stable at the neighboring estate has been Miss Bianca Snowley's refuge for years, and when a strange man appears to be stealing the horses, she jumps to their protection without a second thought. Upon learning Hudson is actually the new owner, she can't help but be intrigued by the area's newest eligible bachelor.

After they become friends at the stables, Hudson recruits Bianca to help him understand English society and the rules of courtship, as he plans to woo Lady Rebecca, whose father's prize horse he plans to breed with his mare. In exchange, Hudson offers to help Bianca find a husband of her own. But the dream match just might be staring them in the face. Hunter's sweet tale nicely weds Regency society intrigue, struggles of faith, and a romance kindled through mutual love of horses. This is sure to entertain any inspirational reader.
