Champion equestrienne Aimee Elliott is tired of being Daddy’s pampered only child. Working as a horse trainer at an American Saddlebred farm in Kentucky feeds her need for independence, even if it’s scary to see if she can make it on her own without her father’s millions. But Aimee never expected a past sweetheart to turn up again, especially after she’d rejected him all those years ago.
CEO of a heavy equipment company, Camden Brennan is out to prove his worth to his adopted father. He just needs to get the contract with construction company owner Ray Elliott, but the man is too preoccupied with his wayward daughter to think about business. If Cam can capture the heart of Ray’s daughter, he’ll not only land the biggest deal of his life, and he might be able to exact revenge on the only woman who ever dumped him. Aimee Elliott holds the key to everything. Does she also still hold the key to his heart?
Aimee’s determined to marry for love, but how will she ever know which a man loves more: her or her daddy’s money? And how far is Cam willing to go for his business? Can he turn a skittish Kentucky horse trainer into his Kentucky bride?
Playboy Hank Brennan has lived too long in the shadow of his superhero stepbrother. Why keep trying to please his critical father when his stepbrother’s running the family business so well? Hank may be a talented painter, but even his mother’s small trust fund isn’t enough to keep him from being a starving artist, living in his father’s pool house in Louisville, Kentucky. Where better to drown his self-pity than a country bar? And who better to understand his pain than a woman with an angelic voice, crooning the sorrowful, blue tunes of another time?
By day, Raylynn Walker trains horses. By night, she sings in a country bar, channeling her inner Patsy Cline, finding healing for her own wounded spirit. The last thing she needs is to try to fix some poor lost soul, acting like a jerk and wallowing in his sorrows. But there’s no denying the man is a talented artist. And tempting. Is she crazy to think she can convince Hank he’s more than just his daddy’s name and fortune, without getting tangled up in his alluring Kentucky heat?
