Veterinarian Ryan Blackstone has a chip on his shoulder that keeps him firmly unattached. He's got a young son he adores, a legacy and a family to be proud of. He's not looking for anything else. And the last thing on Kelly Andrew's mind is romance when she accepts a job at the famous Blackstone stud farm. But when she meets sexy Ryan, she begins to question her resolve to remain faithful to her deceased husbands's memory. Soon tensions and passions create a hear wave of unspoken need and maybe a chance for new beginnings.

This is the first in a three part series called the Blackstones of Virginia. This story is about a family of African-American horse racers. In the first story you meet Ryan Blackstone the eldest brother of the family and the resident veterinarian. Ryan is a divorcee with a young son who meets the new Pre-school teacher Kelly Andrews. Kelly is a widowed woman who has come to the farm to start her life over after the death of her husband. This is a simple love story, with a slow burn. The couples passion builds to a slow and steady fire. A very good opening book, I like it.

NEVER SAY NEVER TO PASSION
