Product Description

Product Description

Growing up trapped by her father's wealth, awkward Ty Stannard found freedom on horseback. A talented equestrian, she yearned to ride as well as her idol, champion Steve Sheppard. Worshiping the handsome Kentuckian, she treasures the lucky medallion he gives her the day they chance to meet. But then a nasty fall changes everything, and Ty is forced to leave her dreams behind.
Now a beautiful woman, determined to live life on her own terms, Ty learns that Steve stands on the brink of ruin. Moved by memories of his kindness to her, she offers him financial backing, but Steve perceives only a selfish socialite amusing herself at his expense. In a daring move, he challenges Ty to be not only a financial partner -- but a full-time farmhand as well, expecting she'll tire of the hardships of a working stable. To Steve's surprise, Ty takes up his challenge.
As they rebuild Southwind, Steve's beloved stable, they find unexpected strength and comfort in each other -- and a passion neither can deny. But their fragile love will be tested by not only those who seek to destroy what they have built, but also the insecurities and doubts that shadow their own very vulnerable hearts.

Synopsis

After an injury destroys her goal of becoming a successful equestrian like her idol, champion Steve Sheppard, socialite Ty Stannard offers Steve financial backing and physical labor to rebuild his stable, Southwind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written with good horsey detail 6 Nov. 2002
By poltroon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. It's well-written in general, and has a terrific background in the American "A" hunter-jumper circuit. The author clearly knows her horses, because the details are unusually accurate, which makes it a pleasure to read if you're a horse lover. (Her other novel, Ride a Dark Horse, is similarly excellent.)
The romance is fun and pleasantly steamy, and the characters stay pretty smart throughout - there are no painfully stupid moments to read through. There are occasional plot conveniences (in particular Ty would've been very well known on the circuit) but none too jarring.
I especially liked the scene with the car keys.

5.0 out of 5 stars This romance is great 25 Sept. 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Lake Placid, New York, Ty Stannard always loved horseback riding because it was her only escape from a harsh demanding father who was never pleased by anything she did. Her hero since the fifth grade is the highly regarded equestrian superstar Steve Sheppard. Ty hopes to one day be as good as her champion, who she meets as a teen when she competes at a junior's event. Steve gives the enthusiastic youngster a lucky medallion, which becomes Ty's most cherished possession. However, a nasty horse ended Ty's dream of a championship.

Years later, Steve is near financial bankruptcy with his reputation shredded and his farm heading towards bankruptcy due to the stupidity of his former partner. Ty's father stands ready to attack like the vulture he is once the final foreclosure occurs. Ty wants to help her hero whose gesture years ago at the Junior's remains one of the few bright spots in an autocratic lonely childhood. Though he wants to refuse her offer of a partnership, Steve has no choice but to accept. However, this is no gawky teen any longer and soon the two new partners begin to fall in love, but her nasty father remains perched prepared to do whatever is necessary to gain Steve's farm.

CHANCE MEETING is an angst-laden contemporary romance filled with two deep lead characters. The story line is exciting as Steve and Ty fall in love in front of a backdrop of the sport of equestrian and the machinations of her avarice father, whose greed and demand make Midas seem reasonable. As usual Laura Moore provides a wonderful compassionate novel because readers feel the hurt, mistrust, and love of her key players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the book!! 31 Oct. 2001
By taana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved Chance Meeting and am looking forward very much to the next book. Could it be about Lizzie and Sam?
I enjoyed how the characters from Ride a Dark Horse were tied into this book. It only took me four hours to read it, it was that good. I am a horse owner and I love to read so naturally I look for the "horsey" romances. I hope to see many more from Laura Moore!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm glad I bought it... 16 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I stumbled across this book while shopping, and I'm just sorry Laura Moore doesn't have more books in print. I enjoyed "Ride a Dark Horse", but I liked this one even more. If you haven't already read it, you should give it a try. I think you'll like it. I just can't wait for Laura's next book to come out...

For those of us adult horse lovers, this book is not to miss! There are too few authors out there that weave one of our life passions into words.
