But Alex can’t shake the conviction that the Thoroughbred life is her destiny.
When her unstable trainer cuts her off from horses, Alex finally has to obey her instinct to run away from the safe version of life. She heads to Ocala, where horse racing is king, with no plan and no leads on jobs. When she meets handsome, successful racehorse trainer Alexander White, she feels an instant connection with him. Could this be her dream come true?
Falling for Alexander and learning to stay on young racehorses all at once: that’s risky business. But it’s a risk Alex is willing to take — until a storm of emotion threatens to founder her new life. Nothing at Alexander’s gorgeous Thoroughbred farm is as simple as it seems, and she’s not the only one lining up for Alexander’s affection — or his horses.
How many times will Alex obey her urge to run away when things get too real? And what happens to her dreams if she can’t stay the course?

Praise for The Alex & Alexander Series
“[Alex is] easy to relate to–equal parts doubt and hope, insecurity and confidence. I think she’s inspiring, and will nudge her readers to face their own crises.”
– Melaina Phipps, Saratoga.com
“The writing is beautiful, and if you love horses, she doesn’t dumb it down. She concentrates what makes horses so compelling.”
– Alexa Shelton, Amazon review
