Sergeant Rachel Bryce’s determination to uphold the rules at any cost has made her a pariah on the Tacoma police force. When she is put in charge of the new mounted division, dissension in the ranks seems to guarantee the program’s failure. Rachel asks an old college acquaintance to help her train the horses and their riders before they make their public debut amid the fireworks and crowds on the Fourth of July.

Callan Lanford doesn’t play by the rules. She invents her own. The scion of a polo-playing dynasty, Cal has been riding since before she could walk, and she scores both on and off the field with equal ease. But she isn’t prepared for the emotional ride she takes as Rachel forces her to confront her achievement-oriented family’s rejection. Cal’s attraction to Rachel grows, but both their future together and the future of the mounted unit are uncertain, plagued by “accidents” and threats.

As Rachel and Cal battle a corrupt politician’s greed in the face of mounting danger, can their love prevail?

My View:

A mystery, a woman in a uniform and horses….YES!!!!
Rachel was a well liked cop in Tacoma WA. After she had to arrest another cop things changed and she found herself alone. Then the leader of the mounted patrol mysteriously dies and Rachel is sent to take over. She needs them to be ready to go by the 4th of July and by the looks of it, she needs help and fast. Her boss wants the well known polo player, Cal, to be that help. Can Rachel convince Cal to help, can she find out who is sabotaging the Mounted Police division or will she fail to get her officers ready in time?

This book is brilliant in my opinion. Very well written with great flow and a fantastic plot. I enjoyed the horses in this dramatic saga. There is so much information on training and riding, and polo. Very interesting things to know.

The characters are very easy to love and care about. This story will swallow you up and you won’t want to put the book down. I love how they all grew and changed. Rachel’s strength and refusal to give up made her a true strong female character. Cal changed a lot too. She went from self centered and untouchable to a woman who came to care about others, and then found her true calling. This book is definitely in my most favorite book file!
