Equine journalist Randi Sterling bonds easily with the horses she writes about--it's men she has a hard time trusting. When she receives a proposition from Jaydee Hill, her charismatic college flame, to move to his ranch in San Diego's wealthy Rancho del Zorro, she is torn. Jaydee is offering her the life she's always dreamed of, but he burned her once before. Is he a changed man or is she heading down a trail of trouble?

Desire and curiosity win her mental coin toss, but she arrives to discover--surprise Jaydee is already married. She stumbles upon Jaydee's dead bride in a champion stallion's stall and is later horrified when her fingerprints are found on the murder weapon.

Can Randi solve this murder in horseman's paradise or will she become the killer's next victim?
