Overview

When a colt named Impressive Bravado is attacked in his stall, Deputy Sheriff Shallamon calls Dr. Katie McCarty DVM for help. This is the second attack in just a few months. What kind of madman would sneak into horse stall in the middle of the night? Will they strike again? Are human lives in danger, too?

What Katie finds is a recipe for disaster - a woman calling herself a "Horse Whisperer," a show barn full of teen girls, half-trained stallions and an old stallion of a discredited line. Adding to the confusion are the typical rivalries of the horse show world and her father's palomino stallion Topper.

Katie lived around these people all her life — it's inconceivable that one of her friends would attack not one, but two colts. Who is behind these attacks? Will they strike again? Can this 'Horse Whisperer' really control a stable full of rambunctious colt?

Luckily, when disaster strikes, Dr McCarty is there.

BONUS - Prologue and first chapter of 'The Emissary - Journey, Horsewomen of the Zombie Apocalypse #1.' "Women on horseback are not helpless zombie bait." — Bethany McLeod.

I loved this little story. In only 7 k words, the author has managed to tell a wonderfully satisfying, complete story with complex, engaging characters.

Dr. Katie McCarty is a newly-minted veterinarian. Early one morning she gets a call from a handsome Deputy because someone snuck into the stables and gelded an expensive colt.

I understand this may be the first in a series. I certainly hope so; I want to read more of Katie and her friends, family, and foes.

Meet the Author

K. A. Jordan is a refugee from the Rust Belt of Ohio, who escaped to the Blue Grass of Kentucky in 1992. She writes and blogs from 'Jordan's Croft' a small farm where she lives with her husband, a retired Army Staff Sergeant and three horses.
She holds a degree in Applied Science, rides American Quarter horses, gardens and can often be found on the back of her husband's Suzuki M109 motorcycle.
She says of her writing: "I write the stories that I want to read, stories written for the head as well as the heart, with complex characters, twisty plots and contemporary settings. There are no 'ripped bodices' in my fiction but you'll find strong women, charming criminals, wounded heroes, mad artists and an occasional haunted motorcycle."
