An Undercover Cop Who Won't Quit

An Aspiring Jockey Who's In Over Her Head

Ex-cop Kurt MacKinnon resents leaving his training stable to dive back into undercover work. He's seen enough sordidness to last a lifetime. But when his former partner is murdered, Kurt ships his third-string Thoroughbreds to the backwater track where his partner was last seen alive. He intends to make someone pay, even if the killer turns out to be a talented rider with a smoking hot body and a disarming smile.

Julie West is chasing a big win, struggling to boost her reputation and propel her into the elite jockey ranks. There's no time for love, but she'd have to be blind and maybe dead not to notice the magnetic new trainer in town. With her talent for handling problem horses, she agrees to work for MacKinnon, never suspecting she's already a person of interest--and it's not because of her riding skills.

Kurt never expected his contrary colt to flourish under Julie's feminine touch nor for his own cynical heart to soften. But when his investigation tightens around the truth, his deceit thrusts them squarely into the killing field.
