It ought to be the beginning of happily-ever-after: After spending a year in Switzerland, Jane Moreland is back home in Hidden Falls, reunited with Matt Wagner, the man she's loved since she was a schoolgirl. Surely nothing will block their path to happiness, for Matt is no longer the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. He's Hidden Falls' newest attorney, a man whose idealism has turned him into an advocate for the mill workers. Unfortunately, that pits him against his childhood adversary, Jane's brother.
Matt has loved Jane since the day he saw her riding a merry-go-round, her arm stretched out to catch the brass ring. If the world were perfect, he'd marry her, and they'd live happily ever after. But the world, as Jane and Matt discover, is not perfect, and marriage would mean unthinkable sacrifices for both of them. Jane is better off marrying the railroad tycoon's son and leaving Matt to devote his life to the mill workers.
That's the right solution. Or is it? Join Jane and Matt as they travel a road filled with twists and turns in their search for the elusive brass ring of love.

A chance encounter with a merry-go-round horse in--of all places--a highway rest area led to Amanda Harte's incurable case of carousel fever. She's been planning stories about painted ponies and the people who love them ever since and is delighted to share the first of the Hidden Falls Romances with you.
Amanda is a charter member of Romance Writers of America, co-founder of its New Jersey chapter, and an avid traveler. She married her high school sweetheart, who shares her love of travel and who's driven thousands of miles to help her research her books. They've recently fulfilled a long-time dream and are now living in the American West, where they're continuing to search for antique carousels.
Painted Pones is Amanda's eighth romance novl. In addition to her highly acclaimed War Brides Trilogy (Dancing in the Rain, Whistling in the Dark and Laughing at the Thunder), she has written three Unwanted Legacies books (Strings Attached, Imperfect Together and Bluebonnet Spring) as well as Moonlight Masquerade, the story of a romance writer with a problem.From Booklist:
Jane Moreland arrives back in Hidden Falls after a year in Switzerland only to discover that Matt Wagner is also back in town. Several years earlier, a blossoming romance between Jane and Matt was crushed by Jane's family, who didn't think Matt was suitable husband material. A freshly minted attorney, he has now returned home to establish his own practice and win back his one true love. But once again, Jane's family threatens to ruin everything. Harte continues her refreshingly different Hidden Falls historical-romance series, which began with Jane's sister Anne's story in Painted Ponies (2006), with a sweetly romantic tale of two people who will not let family, or business, get in the way of their second chance at love.
