Both Argo and Raine have left Jessica behind to search for their missing stable mate, the Palomino Trent. In the wake of an accident Jessica finds herself broken and battered and at the mercy of fate until the missing Trent returns. She discovers that he had been limping home through the countryside using a makeshift crutch after a fall had ruined his leg. With the damage done he would never be able to use his unique ability to transform into his Palomino form, a loss too great to imagine for the proud man. There is only one chance for them both, but Jessica will have to cast aside her old life and join her shifter men at the stable forever.
