An emergency call to pick up an injured stallion on the side of the road sends Alexandra Hart, the new owner of Hart's Horse Rescue, into action. A recent addition to the area, she is not impressed when the animal's taciturn owner shows up. With his less-than-stellar disposition he's the kind of man she normally avoids at all costs, unfortunately he owns the ranch just down the road.
However, when the manhunt for a pair of escaped prisoners gets a little to close for comfort, Jonas turns out to be a better neighbor than she expected.
The Alex who shows up at his ranch to help with his prize stud's recovery is not exactly who Jonas Harvey expected. This is the same bleeding heart he met on the side of the road. Worried she's not up for the job, he'd prefer to keep a close eye on her but his High Mountain Trackers team gets called in to track down a group of domestic terrorists.
But the slip of a woman proves him wrong. On all fronts. Alex not only charms his horses but him as well, and when trouble comes calling she proves to be a worthy ally to boot.
