From the bestselling author of THE ONE DOLLAR HORSE trilogy and THE GLORY comes an exclusive ebook short story, perfect for Valentine's Day.

Sixteen-year-old Ellie loves horses. But since her younger sister died three years ago, Ellie's mum and dad won't let her do anything on her own - let alone something as exciting as learning to ride.

When the family goes on holiday to Devon, Ellie thinks she's going to be stuck indoors listening to her parents argue all day. But then a chance encounter with the handsome but mysterious Logan and his beautiful bay horse, Savannah Gold, offers a chance of adventure. Maybe this year Ellie's Valentine's Day won't be so bad after all...
