Jordan used to ride real horses. Now her only equine companion is her totem animal in her favorite MMPORG. She misses horses, but keeps herself occupied by gaming extensively between shifts at her job reviewing digital classifieds for the local paper online. It's not a glamorous career, but it pays the bills.
One day, Jordan sees an ad offering ranch riding lessons from a 5th generation rancher. She finds herself curious enough to make a phone call. This takes her to the Tipped Z Ranch, where she meets her instructor, Erin, and a gorgeous ranch hand named Grant. Grant is friendly and sweet, but there's something odd about him. He hasn't ridden a horse in over two years. When Jordan sets out to discover why, she starts to fall in love in the process.
Growing up in Tucson, Arizona, Stefani always hoped to marry a cowboy. She did not. (Instead she married a man who turned into a cowboy, but that's a story for another day.) She has always loved to write stories and ride horses, and now frequently writes stories about riding horses (and falling in love.)
