Wild Dreams by Lynn Landes
Dr. Dominick Schmidt was hired to check over the fifteen horses participating in the horse race. His contract is clear. He inspects them before and after each race, looking for signs of doping, and cares for them in the event of an injury. Dominick is blindsided by the young women determined to rescue the losing animals.
Julietta Weaver isn't like most young women, the Lord gave her a heart for horses. Specifically, racehorses. When she learns the owners sell the losing horses for meat she hatches a plan to open Wild Dreams Sanctuary. A home for lost horses, but to fund it she will have to bet more than she ever thought possible, including her heart.
