Jillian Trent falls for a cowboy…but not just a cowboy. He’s a champion of reining from Texas, from money, and realistically, far out of reach. Or is he? The moment he asks her out, Jill starts to puzzle over his ‘real’ motivation. After all, a trail ride through the Catskills, overshadowed by the legends of ‘the Headless Horseman’ might seem romantic to some, or it might highlight some of the dangers inherent to riding—and love. And she knows there is a danger. Nothing is what Jill expected, though. She’s fallen for a man and at the same time, becomes enchanted with a golden Haflinger. All her ambitions for love and her riding career are at her fingertips. Yet, both are threatened. Unfortunately, no one else shares Jill’s perception. Perhaps Jill’s involvement in mystery writing makes her susceptible to seeing clues where there are none. Will she put aside her self-doubt and trust? Or will that leave all of them in deadly danger.
