When Merritt Wenner skips the SATs in favor of a bender, she is yanked from her school and sent to an equine therapy program. There she’s assigned to care for Red, a gelding who’s as rebellious as she is. Red’s owner recognizes Meritt’s talent, and before she and Red know it, they are caught up in the whirlwind of the competitive equestrian circuit. But Merritt can’t see that their closeness has a price. Red has never belonged to anyone before; now that he does, he’ll do anything to keep her.
