Strong willed, independent, and competitive as hell, Heather Phillips isn’t going to let anyone beat her in the show ring… that is until Grant Crowley started taking away her blue ribbons. A wealthy cattle rancher with an attitude and taste for beautiful women, Grant is the only person who ever made Heather feel second best. Yet she is determined to beat him, no matter the cost.
When an accident brings the two rivals together, their heated dislike has to be put on hold. Outside of the show ring, they slowly get to
