Where the Horses Run
A lawman turned wrangler and a desperate Englishwoman risk everything for a wounded horse - and for each other. For fans of Linda Lael Miller, Jodi Thomas, and Catherine Anderson. Wounded in body and spirit after a shootout, Rayford Jessup leaves his career as a lawman and uses his gift with damaged horses to bring meaning to his solitary life. Hired by a Scotsman in Heartbreak Creek to purchase thoroughbreds, he travels to England, unaware that a traumatized horse and a beautiful Englishwoman will change his life forever. Josephine Cathcart loves two things- her illegitimate son and her injured stallion. Faced with her father's looming bankruptcy, she must choose between a loveless marriage to the man who ruined her, or risk her horse and her future on a handsome, taciturn Texan and a high-stakes horse race. But as vengeful forces conspire against them, will Rafe's love and healing touch be enough to save her horse and protect her and her son? Praise for Where the Horses Run- 'Lawman-turned-wrangler Rafe Jessup can't help trying to save things, whether it's people or horses. He ends up in England choosing thoroughbreds for Ash Wallace's Heartbreak Creek horse ranch and finds a badly injured horse and a woman who desperately needs someone on her side, so he does what comes naturally. He knows he can help Pembroke's Pride, but saving lovely Josephine Cathcart, Pems' owner and the single mother of an illegitimate son, is another matter entirely - unless they are willing to risk everything on a race that Pems might not win. Verdict. A resilient, poorly used heroine and a rugged, caring hero overcome almost insurmountable odds to find safety and happiness in a compelling, radiantly written romance that boasts a rich assortment of unusual, appealing secondary characters and is laced with wry humor and a surprisingly chilling dash of very real danger.' Library Journal 'Rich with character development . . . emotion suffuses the tender romance between the privileged yet resilient Englishwoman and the tough American horse trainer.' Publishers Weekly 'Warner blends a bit of The Horse Whispererinto a passionate tale of an emotionally wounded woman and the ex-lawman turned wrangler who frees her soul to love again. This beautifully rendered love story is tough and tender - just what Warner's fans have come to expect from this gifted storyteller.' RT Book Reviews'Compelling, radiantly written' Library Journal
