y Barker has been dancing through the last thirty years of his life—and he’s suddenly realized he’s alone. Most of his friends at Horseshoe Home have moved on, found love, gotten married, started families. To fill the void in his life, he gives horseback riding lessons on the weekends and serves on a community service committee that organizes town events in Gold Valley. River Lee Whitely is back in Gold Valley with her two little girls after a divorce that’s left deep scars. She has a job at Silver Creek that requires her to be able to ride a horse, and she nearly tramples Ty at her first lesson. That’s just fine by him, because River Lee is the girl Ty has never gotten over. They spent one summer together—and one unforgettable kiss—before River Lee left for college. Ty realizes River Lee needs time to settle into her new job, her new home, her new life as a single parent, but going slow has never been his style. But for River Lee, can Ty take the necessary steps to keep her in his life?
