In the small town of Taylor's Bend, some secrets are about to ignite...
When Taylor's Bend vet Oliver Johnson attends a car accident involving a horse float from a nearby stud farm he's not prepared for an encounter with Krista Laatonen, the billionaire owner's stepdaughter. Beautiful, prickly, and entitled, she is everything he despises about the world he left behind all those years ago. But he can't neglect an injured animal, and there is something about Krista he can't ignore.
Oliver soon discovers that first impressions can be misleading-the accident was not as it seemed, and there might just be more to Krista than he expected.
When two thugs arrive on Oliver's doorstep claiming the horse from the accident belongs to their boss, Oliver and Krista are thrown into the middle of a dangerous game of deception and greed. As the threats around them escalate into blood spilled, choking fire, and a violent abduction, Oliver must decide if Krista's ice-queen mask hides a woman worth risking his life-and his heart-for.
