Aaron Whitworth hasn't had control over most aspects of his life, but he's always taken pride in being an honorable businessman and better-than-average horseman. When both of those claims are threatened, he makes the desperate decision to hire the horse trainer of a traveling circus as a temporary jockey for his racehorses.
Sophia Fitzroy knows that most horsemen don't take her seriously because she's a woman, but she can't pass up the opportunity to get away from the tumultuous world of travel and performing. As she fights for the right to do the work she was hired for, she learns the fight for Aaron's guarded heart might be an even more worthwhile challenge.
As secrets come to light and past vulnerabilities are confronted, will Aaron and Sophia sacrifice their former dreams and forge a new one together--against all odds?
This is the second installment in the Hearts on the Heath series and this book was ever bit as good as the first book. This series is so uplifting and amazing, a must read. Aaron Whitworth was introduced to us in the first book of this series and so I couldn’t wait to read his story in this book.
The story takes place in Newmarket, England in 1817. Stable manager Aaron Whitworth must find a jockey so he can enter the next horse race. But then Sophia Fitzroy a well-known horseback rider and trainer arrives and gives Aaron a run for his money. Aaron is not your typical hero and he struggles with the relationships in his life, and Sophia seems to push him out of his comfort zone, and at the same time she supports him, which is a huge self-esteem builder for Aaron. As the story unfolds you will be flying through the pages. This story has all the feels and you will find yourself cheering for Aaron to find his path and for Sophia making the most of her life.
The twists at the end of the story was my absolute favorite part. Readers of regency romance will absolutely love this story, this is a phenomenal story. Thank you Kristi Ann Hunter for this fantastic series, I loved it.
