Training Horses and Hearts

by Nicole Gustafson

After a painful breakup, horse trainer Sam Monroe escapes to Northern California in hopes of regrouping and meeting up with old friends. When her best friend volunteers Sam’s help with a neighbor’s traumatized rescue horse, Sam doesn’t hesitate to lend a hand.

But when neighbor Alyssa Johansson turns out to be beautiful, single, and attracted to women, the chemistry is immediate and undeniable.

Soon Sam learns that retraining her heart is much harder than training horses, and Sam and Alyssa will have to decide if true love is worth risking it all.

"In a college creative writing class, I had to dive into the emotions of a character using only one scene. I wrote about a lesbian named Sam who was at the airport, headed to visit friends after a painful break-up. I’ve carried Sam in my heart since then, determined to someday flesh out her story into a full length book. Twenty years later, out of the blue one day, I decided, “I’m going to write a book.” Two months and 86,000 words typed on my iPhone later, I took a deep breath and sent Sam and Alyssa’s story to Bella Books for publication consideration. And the rest is history!"
