Overview

Gabrielle Warrenton gave up everything to pursue her dream of a first-class Egyptian Arabian breeding farm. Her future lies in her new stallion’s success. Though she possesses an exceptional eye for horseflesh, she lacks the training knowledge, and Bahadur Mamoon has a date with the nation’s most affluent show in three weeks. Nothing that would present a problem given his previous credentials. Only, the sellers disguised one critical fact—he’s crazy.

Jake Lindsey-Sullivan was once part of an exceptional Arabian training team. Under his mother’s guidance, he developed an instinctual talent, but she was the star, the cornerstone of his life. Until she met a premature death. Grief-stricken and plagued by guilt, Jake abandoned the world of horses. Now an over-the-road truck driver, he evades the memories.

When a snowstorm throws two Arabian professionals into close-quarters, they discover an engulfing passion. But will Mamoon rip open emotional scars, or forever seal them shut?

    Enjoyed this romance

    I enjoyed this story set in the equine show world. It is obvious CA has first hand kniwledge of horses-- and the Arabian breed. Characters were fun and even though the storyline was predictable, it held my interest. The only thing that i didn't like in this book was the fact that the ending seemed rushed -- like the author had a limited number of pages and had to wrap it up quick. I will most definitely look for other books by Claire Ashgrove.

    Great Read

    The multi-faceted characters, mesmerizing imagery, and magical word pictures created by Claire Ashgrove make Waiting For Yes beguiling. These bring to life this love story of two adrift souls that carry so much hurt from past experiences that each feels unworthy of love.

    Gabrielle Warrenton and Jake Sullivan travel the same lonesome highway in Kansas as a snow storm blows in. Gabrielle has a psychotic stallion in her trailer and Jake has followed her for hours in his eighteen-wheeler.

    Destiny seems to have set a plan in motion for them. Snowed in together on her Imtiyaz Arabian farm, the haunted, loner Jake soon realizes the little red-headed dynamo horsewoman, who embodies everything he never wanted, eases the hollow emptiness in him. When he holds her close, it feels like "coming home"; his tension unwinds. Never has making love been so good. He sleeps with no ghosts of the past screaming and taunting in his dreams. Jake tells himself he can walk away after a brief interlude and go back to clocking miles in his semi-running from this past.

    Gabrielle, the disowned daughter of a rich, well-known Arabian breeder, ran from her father's control to make it on her own. But she fears she made a bad decision that may destroy her dreams of success for her horse operation in Ransom, Kansas. She had placed her hopes on Maroon, the beautiful but crazed Arabian stallion.

    At this vulnerable time in her life, Jake comes on the scene and rocks her world. In all her twenty-six years, she's never gone to bed with a stranger, but Jake "knows how to love a woman". Taking her friend Margie's advise, Gabrielle decides "to go with the flow", to not over think things and to not ask questions.

    As Maroon's history comes to light along with Jake's ability to handle horses, Gabrielle struggles with her need for Jake's love, his approval, and his ability to handle the amazing Maroon.

    As Jake sees her struggles, he bonds with her on much more than a sexual level and wrestles with his own demons. Does he run or stay, does he destroy her dreams and hopes or does he rally to her cause--questions he cannot seem to answer.

    Waiting For Yes is a fantastic story with spine-tingling danger, sparkling humor, breathtaking love scenes, and heart-warming, unconditional friendship. The redemption and exquisite love make it a memorable tale.
