Happily single, Harper Bishop trusts in only one passion—her rescue farm and healing her thoroughbred, Phoenix. Her dream is to lead him to the Triple Crown. But how unreachable is it without experience or help? A handsome new guest at her family’s B&B has what it takes to make it come true. And with his irresistible brogue, warm smile, and soothing touch, he’s a major distraction.
After a bitter betrayal, horse trainer Aidan O’Connor has fled Ireland for a vacation in New York’s Hudson Valley. When he sees the horse with the fighting spirit, he’s inspired with a new goal: to train Phoenix to win. He’s also facing an unexpected new challenge: his feelings for Harper.
How can she dare to open her heart to a man who’ll be there only long enough to break it?
So Harper and Aidan agree: try to keep it professional, and focus only on Phoenix and the finish line. But along the way, they could also learn a few lessons in love, trust, and taking chances. And, as painful as it promises to be, saying goodbye.

Not my first read by author, she was one of my very first reads, many moons ago!! I have also read Book #1 & 2!! This one I was looking for more because it involves horses, a traveler and the possibility of an end.
Harper is a beautiful soul, loner so to say. Content with herself at being alone, no man, no kids…hadn’t even thought about it. Heck she though she was broken because of that, but she just is okay to be where she is, with what she has and the way things have been. Until a stranger walks in, threatening it all.
That something was Aiden, a traveler from another country coming down to NY to get away from it all. Hide, run…whichever, he was there to not be elsewhere. That’s how he ended up in a B & B where the interior was charming and just what he needed. Harper is a strong woman but Aiden is the right kind of alpha to handle her. Their chemistry is off the hook in this, even when they stayed away…the glances and thoughts. *sizzling* and let’s not mention the cat-and-mouse-tug-and-pull-game they have going on!
Their first kiss…oh.my.god. I was literally swooning in my chair from it! GOOD GOSH, was that a perfect kiss. Aiden gave Harper exactly what she needed when she didn’t even know she DID need it. Forever Swooning over that kiss! Let me just also help you and throw in a baby goat Named Captain Hoof and a magnificent horse named Phoenix.
Basically Aiden let Harper BE HARPER, be the woman she is, strong and take-care of everything workaholic…but he gave her more…makes her feel alive, like a woman…sexy! And that is why AIDEN the Irish traveler is one of my now favorite BOOKBOYFRIENDS! *sigh*
But sadly like I said at the beginning that possibility became a guarantee of an END. JP writes beautiful words and I just loved this story. There was enough action, adventure, passion and the swoon factor not to mention romance. It also has the previous characters from book 1 and 2 so it all tied in beautifully. Even if the ending killed me *tear*
A MUST READ!
