Are you ready for the latest update on Jules, Pete, and the horses of Briar Hill Farm? Good news – Courage is coming! I have details for you on the story-line, release date, when you can pre-order your Kindle edition, and, of course, the gorgeous cover!
We last saw Jules and Pete at the end of a long hard summer of apprenticeships. Pete spent the summer in England; Jules at a show barn outside of Orlando. Neither of them came back exactly the same as when they’d left, and now, they’re not sure where they stand with one another.
There’s also the looming question of who owns Briar Hill Farm, the sprawling eventing wonderland where they’ve been training under the not-so-gracious permission of Pete’s grandmother. With her sudden passing, there are legal questions about how binding her arrangement with her grandson was, leaving Pete and Jules wondering if they and their horses are on the edge of eviction. At the same time, they’re on the hook for the enormous upkeep bill of the property for the first time.
Still, there are always horses to ride, always events on the horizon. In Ocala, there’s one surefire way to make money when you’re facing insurmountable bills: racehorses. One thing though… training racehorses is not like training ex-racehorses. And Jules isn’t so sure this galloping lark is going to work out–until she meets Alex.
From the back cover of Courage:
For three-day event rider Jules Thornton, courage means riding her horses forward through the most daunting cross-country courses in the sport. She’s already proven she’s willing to whatever it takes to make her name as an eventer, even spending the summer in an intense dressage program.
Now she’s back in Ocala and ready to tackle the winter eventing with her usual bravado, but neither she nor her partner, Pete are ready for the next struggle the eventing gods have cooked up. Their farm is locked in a legal battle, their income depends on galloping racehorses, and Amanda the Hunter Princess is way too friendly with Pete for Jules’ tastes.
This fall, Jules has to learn courage goes deeper than kicking on through sticky situations. Courage means hanging on for dear life, and knowing when to let go.
Courage will be released on February 21st. You can preorder the Kindle edition here. A paperback will also be available. Paperbacks purchased through Amazon will include a free download of the Kindle edition.
