The thinking girl’s summer romance: A gorgeously-written story of love and loss with a thrilling royal twist!

After a car accident claims her mother’s life, Sass is sent to Cornwall to live with the uncle she’s never met. All she wants is to be alone, to come to terms with the new Sass — the girl who can’t forget the screech of tires, the crunch of metal.

With its rocky beaches and secluded fields, Cornwall is the perfect place to hide. It gets even better when Sass glimpses a silver horse and starts sneaking off to spend time with the one creature who makes her grief feel manageable.

During one of her visits, Sass runs into Alex, the horse’s owner. At first, he shows nothing but disdain for the trespassing American. But despite his brusque manner, he feels an affinity for the curious girl with the sad eyes, and offers to teach her to ride.

Sass never expected to feel anything again, yet soon she finds herself falling for Alex. But Alex has a secret — a bombshell that could shatter Sass’s fragile trust. . . and force him to abandon the only girl who made him believe in true love.
