Summary

A SECOND CHANCE IN THE SADDLE All widowed veterinarian Zach Talbot wants is to raise his two boys in the peace and quiet of his New Mexico town. Who'd have thought that being roped into helping a woman choose a horse for her son would upend the single father's whole world? Except ex-actress and rodeo rider Mallory Keyes isn't just any woman. With its wide-open spaces and sky that goes on forever, Whispering Pines is the ideal temporary haven after the accident that changed Mallory's life forever. Falling for the sexy, caring man who found the perfect palomino for her eleven-year-old wasn't in her short- or long-term plans. Zach's also determined to get Mallory back in the saddle. Can she return the favor by helping to heal the still-grieving vet's heart?

    Handsome, distinguished and decidedly dashing, Theo, the Duke of Eaglefield, has the world, and most of its women, at his feet. But he takes all this attention for granted and is becoming tired and bored by it all.  
    In fact his friend, Harry Hampton, tells him that he has no concept of the challenges and complexities faced by the ordinary man and that the people he encounters see only his riches and rank rather than the man himself. 
    Protesting that this is untrue, Theo accepts Harry's challenge to walk the fifty miles from Brighton to his house, Eagle Hall, in Berkshire incognito and mixing with commoners along the way. He stands to lose his finest pair of horses should he fail and so he sets forth, leaving behind the glamour of Brighton's Beau Monde.
    The second morning of his pilgrimage, Theo comes across a beautiful young girl, Alysia, standing precariously at the edge of a deep pool next to a weir. She seems to be praying and, instinctively, he knows that she is about to plunge to her death in the river.
    After leading her to safety he hears all about her cruel and grasping stepfather who murdered her mother and who is now bent on seizing her sizeable inheritance by marrying her off to his friend, Lord Gosforde with whom he will share the spoils. 
    Theo is transfixed by Alysia, thinking it quite 'impossible for anyone to be so beautiful'.
     Almost instantly he finds himself falling in love with this 'very young angel who has fallen out of Heaven by mistake' and he decides to take her on his journey on foot. 
    But can he keep Alysia away from her murderous stepfather and be able to reach the safety of Eagle Hall unscathed?
