Daisy is a new mother, recently widowed, and she needs a job. Catrina, our beloved matchmaker, tells her about a teaching opportunity in Northern California at a horse training facility. Since Daisy went to the Olympics on the U.S. Equestrian Team, she’s excited at the chance to be back in the world of horses.
The owner, Danielle, is thrilled to hire her and has great plans for Daisy to teach English riding lessons since that is her area of expertise. However, her brother, Dakota, suspects Daisy is simply an unwed mother who is lying about her illustrious experience as an athlete.
When Dakota is confronted with a woman bearing an infant who is supposedly his, Daisy shows him compassion, even after he has treated her poorly. That, coupled with her phenomenal horse instinct that is equal to his own, has Dakota rethinking his opinion of her.
Fun Facts: Book 3
This story really didn’t go like I had planned. I originally wanted Daisy and Dakota to have a competition to see who could train horses the best. If you’ve read the book, you know it didn’t go that way.
I had no idea when I started that Dakota was going to have a baby, too, but it turned into one of the most entertaining aspects of the story.
One of things I found almost frustrating was that I could never get Daisy to stay mad at Dakota. She kept forgiving him. It made me a little nuts, because you need that conflict to keep the story going.
February 11th is also my son’s birthday.
