"Wingate's idyllic small-town atmosphere in this sweet romance makes for a charming read." --Booklist

After a tragic accident, Lauren Eldridge avoided Daily, Texas, for two years. She's still not ready to face the painful memories but can't refuse her father's plea for help training a skittish racehorse meant to star in a Hollywood film. However, having to train troubled actor Justin Shay along with the horse--or feeling drawn to his handsome best friend--was not part of the plan.

Screenwriter Nate Heath had no intention of letting Justin talk him into another doomed project. He knows he's out of second chances. Yet he soon finds himself in middle-of-nowhere Texas with a script that needs a major makeover and an entire town counting on him. While watching the beautiful, gifted horse trainer at work, Nate realizes there's a spark of magic in this film--and in the connection between them. But exploring their attraction will require both Nate and Lauren to face the pain and guilt of their pasts, and to learn not only how to accept forgiveness but also to forgive themselves.
