But Kerry doesn't want Ireland or horses: she wants Paris, Africa and a man who can take her far away from her inheritance.

But under the smooth surface Brandon is secretly at war with himself. When they meet, the consequences are devastating for them both, and for everyone they love, for decades to come.
