"a lovely G-rated romance!"

Simone Littleton was considered mainly a quack by all the trainers at the racetrack. Being an Equine Massage Therapist, she used her skills along with a combination of massage oils and herbs to calm down even the most stressed- out horse. Her personal life was complicated and men usually didn't like her kind of complicated. While she did work for racer Trent Jones, everyone else laughed at her constantly.

Chet Wallace owned racehorses and was not looking for anything but a winning horse. No time for anything else but training and he is not about to put up with the "Crazy Horse Lady" tending to his prized horses. His dog, Pollock, has other ideas.

You see, Simone's little secret is that she can talk to animals. It has made her the laughing-stock of the track and has not been helpful in getting new clients. When Chet yells at her in front of everyone for not telling him her secret, it breaks her heart. The path to Simone's heart is through her work with horses and the path to Chet's is the same. Will they forgive and forget? You can never trust a scheming Jack Russell Terrier.

This book is part 1 of a series titled Hoofbeats and Heartstrings. Let's hope it is a long-lived series because this book is G rated, and a lovely story!

**A PNR Reviewer Recommended Read**

As a child, Simone Littleton adores the European folktale that animals are given the gift of speech at midnight on Christmas Eve. She makes a wish to talk to animals "forever and ever" and, when her pet Dalmatian asks her for a biscuit, she discovers her wish has been granted. Now Simone is all grown up and she uses her unique gift to rehabilitate unwanted horses. When racehorse trainer Chet Wallace rolls into San Antonio, with chocolate eyes and dimples blazing beneath his black Stetson, romantic sparks fly. He is immediately drawn to the beautiful woman who has a mesmerizing affect on both his horses and his dog, but his less than enthusiastic response to Simone's claims threatens their budding romance. It takes a scheming Jack Russell terrier and a dose of Christmas magic to convince Chet she just may be telling the truth.
