A spirited young woman with a painful family secret. A lonely but determined FBI agent with a crime to solve. Set amid the lush landscape of Lexington, Kentucky--serious horse country, and home to the famous Keeneland Race Course--Hunter's Moon is the riveting new novel of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards.
It's not as if Molly Ballard has ever had it easy. At twenty-four, she's the sole support of her younger brothers and sisters, struggling to make ends meet by grooming at a Kentucky stable. So when FBI agent Will Lyman, in town from Chicago to investigate a racehorse-fixing scheme, catches her stealing cash from the stable, he's inclined to let her off with only a warning. Then Will realizes that Molly's familiarity with horses can help him nail the culprit he seeks. There's only one catch: She has to pose as his girlfriend to ward off suspicion.
Molly is hardly thrilled by the scenario, but she's in no position to object. If she doesn't agree, Will can have her arrested. With the gravest of misgivings, she joins forces with him, gritting her teeth all the way. Both stubbornly try to resist the sparks that fly between them until they can no longer be resisted.
When the community is threatened by a bizarre series of animal mutilations, panic escalates along with the bloodshed. Molly and Will are as frightened as everyone else, but it's not until the terror threatens to strike all too close to home that they realize the truth: Playing at love--even for the best of reasons--can be dangerous.
Once again Karen Robards has given us a dramatic thriller that is also a tender love story -- a novel of romantic longing, abiding family loyalty, and suppressed desire that will break your heart and convince you of the transforming power of love.
