After her father empire comes crashing down his daughter Flor tries to escape the scandal by attending college in America. Her dreams are to become an equestrian veterinarian. Her love of horses is strong but her spirit is stronger. In desperate need of a summer job. She finds herself approaching Mrs. Poppy Baron for work at her ranch in California. Now if you are an avid Vivian Winslow reader like I am then you know all about Gustavo and the Barons. I have read them all and would highly recommend reading them before starting this series as it gives you a lot of history about the characters.
Flor never realized California could be this beautiful. Especially when she meets the very handsome and reserved trainer Collin as well as the stunning, confident Paco.
Paco’s intentions are quickly known. Even though he is beautiful she finds herself drawn the the boy with the dark brown eyes. Collin is an enigma. Soft spoken and reserved. It’s only when she is paired with him to assist in training does he start to open up to her.
The horses, the ranch, Collin…it’s all overwhelming and her attraction for him only grows stronger. When he kisses her she feels it. When he looks at her she melts.
But secrets come to head that could ruin them…when her father comes to the ranch…the biggest secret of them all is revealed.
Does Flor have it in her heart to forgive them? Or will she leave and turn her back on them forever?
Vivian’s writing is powerful. You can almost smell the hay in the stables and the sweat from their bodies it’s so well written. Highly recommend reading any and all of her books.
