A rising star in the modeling world, Margot Radcliffe hasn’t forgotten the hurt that sent her running from Rosewood, the beautiful Virginia horse farm where she was raised. Travis Maher, a ruggedly handsome rebel and gifted trainer with a hard-knock past, had once captured Margot’s heart—and then gave it back to her broken.
But when Margot’s family is struck by tragedy, she is forced to set aside her skyrocketing career and return to a place she never expected to see again, where the legs everyone is interested in belong to thoroughbreds not supermodels. Now Rosewood’s success is dependent on Margot, and the only person she can count on for help is the very man who taught her the meaning of sorrow all those years ago.
As Margot and Travis join forces to save Rosewood from ruin, their wild natures clash and passions surge. But will this hard-hearted horseman be able to find a way to express his desire for the one woman he’s ever loved before she’s lost to him forever?
This is my first Laura Moore novel, and it most definitely won't be my last. I just hate that the next book in this trilogy won't be released until January 2011.
The Prologue of this book was so heart-wrenching watching Margot try to find her place at Rosewood and the world in general. The book overall was great, my only complaint was Travis and Margot didn't seem to communicate they just assumed. Of course that was always blowing up in their faces, but without that aspect I guess there wouldn't have been any conflict.
Not only was the romantic aspect of the story great, but also the whole side story of running a horse ranch. Plus all the trails and tribulations Margot faced when it came to her family. The relationship between the three sister was great to watch develop into something more than strangers who happened to be related. Jordan and Margot had always been close, but they weren't so close with their half-sister Jade. By the end of the book I felt that the sister had come a long way in the development of their relationship. It most definitely has me anxiously awaiting the release of Jordan and Jade's stories.
