“Look, but don’t touch.”
Ornate stables. The smell of hay and sweat. The lush green of the show grounds. Maple Parsons finds the allure of the Pony Bazaar overwhelming and supremely enticing. “Bio-Equine Showcasing,” as the sponsors put it.
And sales. Because she’s here with J.B. to sell the pony girls J.B. trained. The prospect terrifies her as much as it thrills her. Not to mention she’s here, alone with J.B. Their attraction keeps them tethered together even as events try and keep them apart.
Given enough force, though, even the strongest ties can be snapped. When Maple’s dark past comes back to haunt her, J.B. might be able to save her, but she’s not sure she can save what they have together.
Others might be looking for a way to break free, but Maple’s desperate to find a way to bind herself to J.B. She wants to be tied down. She’s willing to sacrifice it all for a chance to be his.
