Product Description


Jerrah Jacobs left home determined to move beyond the pain of a tragic accident, and to rediscover some portion of the woman she used to be. She traveled the country, finding solace in secluded campgrounds and the quiet companionship of her dog Mocha.

Her solitude is broken when she walks into Cal McFerren -- literally -- and re-injures her ankle. Now she is dependent on this stranger and his two sons.

Long buried emotions are reawakened while she stays at Cal's ranch. Her sense of family and the bonds of friendship have her moving to the rhythm of ranch life, and she starts a surprising relationship with an abused horse. She spends time teaching the horse to trust again, but can she teach herself?


Jerrah sat on the table looking around the room. There was nothing retro about the paneling on the wall, it was definitely original. Other than the age of the decor and equipment, it looked about like any other X-ray room she had ever been in.

She wondered about asking the doctor for help. Asking the sheriff hadn't worked.

A young girl wearing a pink t-shirt and lots of jewelry came bouncing through the door, interrupting her thoughts. "Hi, I'm Laura. Slide your leg over this way a little and I'll get started. This won't take long. I already had everything set up. I'm not usually in here on Saturdays, but we figured with the rodeo today there was a good chance somebody would need an X-ray before the day was out." Laura picked up a clipboard and asked Jerrah for her full name.

While the girl positioned Jerrah's leg and adjusted the machine, she talked. She was obviously not shy. "So, how long have you known Cal? Isn't he just gorgeous? I'm not usually into older men, but for someone like him I'd consider making an exception."

"I don't know him at all, we just ran into each other at the rodeo."

"Really? I thought since you were wearing the McFerren brand you knew him pretty well."

"The what?"

Laura pointed to the logo on the shirt Jerrah was wearing. "That's the McFerren brand. It's been used at the Sundown Ranch for generations. How'd you hurt your ankle?"

"Cal and I literally ran into each other at the rodeo. We fell. I twisted my ankle and ruined my shirt. He loaned me this one."

"Where are you from? I don't remember ever seeing you before."

"I'm on vacation from Indiana." Jerrah said, then thought if Laura didn't mind asking so many questions maybe she would be as open to answering a few. "Do you know Cal well?"

"I've known him all my life. His son TJ and I were born in the same hospital on the same day. We both just turned twenty last month. Where are you staying? With this ankle you're going to be laid up awhile"

"Cal seems to think I'm going to stay at his ranch."

"Really? Wow! You'll be the envy of every woman in the county. I don't think there's a woman within a hundred-mile radius that hasn't dreamed of spending time on that ranch. Those over twenty-five because of Cal, Garret, and Jeff and those under twenty-five because of Reece and TJ. You are so lucky."

"I'm not looking to get lucky." Jerrah replied sarcastically.
