Glamorous GP Nicci (aka the galloping doctor), and Matt, the very handsome equine vet, have caught each other's eyes. On paper it looks like a match made in heaven. There are problems, however: Matt's jealous ex-girlfriend being one of them. But the main trouble is Nicci's determination to qualify for the Badminton horse trials. Because although Matt treats horses for a living, a tragedy in his past makes him terrified every time Nicci competes. So when Nicci has a terrible accident, a devastated Matt gives her an ultimatum: it's either him or the riding. Nicci can't believe he means it. But can she risk putting him to the test?
