Only one pair of bootsùand the cowboy wearing themùcan get Annie out of the mess sheÆs in.
Annie Wilkerson is Moose CreekÆs premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When AnnieÆs column is cancelled, sheÆs given first shot at a new lovelorn columnùand she canÆt afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . AnnieÆs never been in love.
Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the townÆs smooth-talking ladiesÆ man Dylan Taylor: SheÆll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if heÆll help her answer the reader letters.
Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she canÆt risk getting hurt now.
The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sisterÆs antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.
When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesnÆt know what to trustùher head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.
