The finale in the Stables Trilogy by Penny Lam!
“You will learn to obey.”
Her mouth aches from the bit. The leather harness cuts into her skin. A lick–or ten– from the crop.
Maple Parsons loves every second of it. Because despite the odds, J.B. has decided to keep and train her. The caveat? He doesn’t romance his stock. He’s adamant about this. Business and pleasure don’t mix, and his stables are all business.
But Maple thinks he’s wrong. Both she and J.B. have wounds they’re trying to heal and she knows that this is the best, most f!cked up therapy there is. He makes her heart gallop and she’s willing to fight for him.
The thing is… she’s not the only one. A new face in his stable seems just as set on seducing J.B. The new pony girl is ruthless, and suddenly Maple is wondering if she’s made a terrible mistake. Each misstep is earning more than J.B.’s disapproval– it’s unraveling the trust they’ve built.
It will take learning which rules to follow and which to break for Maple to survive the stable. If she doesn’t succeed, a broken heart is the least of her worries.
