In a winner-take-all match race only one can win, never challenge a woman who won't give up or give in. More
Briar McKenna has spent years trying to find her lost family. Then she inherits the once-famed Caulfield Farm, a Thoroughbred ranch in northern California that belonged to her great-grandparents, Marguerite and Sloane Caulfield. Joyously she restores the farm and enters the elite world of Thoroughbred racing, hiring the secretive Stefan Yager as ranch manager. They become lovers.
Then a man named Rupert Jaeger reignites a century-old feud, vowing to destroy her and the Caulfield name. Briar can’t understand why until she finds Marguerite’s journals--and meets an old man named Gillie, who as a boy was a groom at Caulfield Farm. Gillie is the key to this complicated story of loves lost and found, treachery, greed—and even an ancient, unsolved murder.
