Gabrielle Warrenton gave up everything to pursue her dream of a first-class Egyptian Arabian breeding farm. Her future lies in her new stallion’s success. Though she possesses an exceptional eye for horseflesh, she lacks the training knowledge, and Bahadur Mamoon has a date with the nation’s most affluent show in three weeks. Nothing that would present a problem given his previous credentials. Only, the sellers disguised one critical fact—he’s crazy.

Jake Lindsey-Sullivan was once part of an exceptional Arabian training team. Under his mother’s guidance, he developed an instinctual talent, but she was the star, the cornerstone of his life. Until she met a premature death. Grief-stricken and plagued by guilt, Jake abandoned the world of horses. Now an over-the-road truck driver, he evades the memories.

When a snowstorm throws two Arabian professionals into close-quarters, they discover an engulfing passion. But will Mamoon rip open emotional scars, or forever seal them shut?


A snowstorm, two people trying to move on with their lives, and horses. I'd say that's an awesome combination for a tender and charming romance. Waiting For Yes tugs on the heart strings of readers, I know it did mine. Gabrielle and Jake's story will warm its way into your mind and body, the gripping pace and emotion will grab hold from the start and take the reader on a journey, and the greatness doesn't stop until the very last page. Claire Ashgrove writes with passion and excellence. The way this author captures the very essence of love is astounding and I enjoyed this story.

Do you love contemporaries? Like stories that have a theme to do with horses? Don't miss Waiting For Yes.
