When Vincent Anderson returns from eight months in Florida helping his dad train racehorses, he expects a peaceful homecoming. But the initial happiness over the reunion with his boyfriend Dustin doesn't last long. Chris, a disgruntled stable hand, causes a riding accident that sends Dustin to the hospital—then Chris disappears.

The fear of Chris's return hovers over the stable like a dark cloud while Vince and Dustin build their relationship and Vince works with his own horse, Xander, to begin trying for the United States Olympic equestrian team. The competition becomes the last of Vince's concerns when Chris shows up at the barn brandishing a gun and demanding money. Vince faces his former employee alone, and what happens next changes everything.

About the Author

Sasha started writing in junior high, but it wasn't until 2013 that she decided to try publishing when her characters demanded more than a place on her computer's hard drive. I've always loved books, but when I was in grade school I generally refused to read anything that didn't have a horse on the cover. I guess it's no surprise that I ended up writing stories about equestrians. I'm from upstate New York and grew up about a mile from a thoroughbred racetrack. My dad worked there as a stable hand when I was little, and he used to take me to see the horses. That's where my love of horses began. I do have my own horse, who I bought in 2013. He and his pasture mates are always a source of inspiration when I need it. I'm still new to the publishing world, and it makes me ridiculously excited to know that people actually read my books. It's great to finally have a good reason to listen to those voices in my head.
