Love affairs, village rivalries, horses, jealousy and secrets—second in Fiona Walker's new series about a Cotswold village

Few women in Compton Magna could fail to notice the arrival of Luca O'Brien. The village stud's new manager, known internationally as the Horse Maker, brims softly-spoken sex appeal from his wild blonde curls to his leather boot soles. Gossipy riding quartet The Saddle Bags are all smitten; young village mom Carly Turner wants to learn his healing skills; bored horse-wife Monique Austen longs to take him straight to bed. Only his old friend Ronnie Percy sees how much Luca's changed from the rising star she met a decade ago, the golden armor masking deep secrets. Busy juggling old beaus and new strings, she tasks diplomatic daughter Pax to open him up, hoping it will help take her mind off her car crash marriage. But as Pax soon discovers, Luca's slow smile and sympathetic hands belie a volcanic core. And when his past catches up with him, the heat is on to save the stud.


"Fiona Walker is a class act, the best of her genre. Witty, clever, fabulous and fun, she's a natural storyteller with a gift for characterisation and plot, romance and drama....massively entertaining...." —Santa Montefiore, Bestselling author of the Deverill Chronicles and The Secrets of the Lighthouse
