Sam Becker, a horse whisperer, agrees to take one last job before retiring to his Texas ranch. It's clear as soon as he meets the Taylor family in Kentucky that he's in for a challenge. What he doesn't expect is the way his own wounds reopen. He's never really dealt with the suicide of his mentally ill wife, and he won't be able to ignore that hurt forever.

Joshua Taylor and his horse, Calla, were a force to be reckoned with on the eventing circuit until an accident ended their careers. Most of the pain is on the inside, however, and Sam knows those injuries are the slowest to mend. Sam's unique methods help Calla and, surprisingly, Josh, but he's still lost without riding. Their feelings for each other come hard and fast, and Josh starts his first steps of recovery, but Sam needs to return to Texas eventually. Even if Josh is able to move past the accident, they'll still have a long and difficult journey to make before they can be together.

Third time lucky is too much to hope for. Isn't it?

Mac McGrath has lived in Armidale all his life. He loves his family and his job as an electrician, running the family business. The only thing missing in his life is a relationship. When Ty, his teenage crush, arrives back in town, maybe he has found someone to love at last.

What starts as friends with benefits quickly turns to more for Mac, but Ty will need to let go of his memories if he is to learn to love again. But can Mac wait that long?
