Dancing in the Moonlight
Rosa Brennan loves her job as stable jockey at the Victoriana Grange racing stables in rural Berkshire, where wealthy Jersey-based owner Kit Pedersen keeps his string of top-class horses. But her happiness and the entire future of Victoriana Grange is suddenly thrown into jeopardy by the arrival of the beautiful and arrogant Claudia Rochelle who is determined that Kit should move his horses elsewhere. When Kit and Rosa meet for the first time sparks fly – but Rosa is determined that Kit mustn’t take his horses away – while Claudia, sensing a growing attraction between Kit and Rosa – is equally determined that she will win...
Rosa, who had always kept her emotions under strict control, was consumed with a giddy desire to slide her arms around his neck, mould her body against his, and kiss those beautiful, sulky lips. She raised her eyes and saw a mirror image of her own desire.
They weren’t even pretending to dance now, just standing, staring at each other. The room, the crowds, the music had all melted away. She was aware of nothing but the electricity darting between them. As Kit lowered his head towards her, she could feel the warmth of his breath on her skin.
