Happily single, Harper Bishop trusts in only one passion—her rescue farm and healing her thoroughbred, Phoenix. Her dream is to lead him to the Triple Crown. But how unreachable is it without experience or help? A handsome new guest at her family’s B&B has what it takes to make it come true. And with his irresistible brogue, warm smile, and soothing touch, he’s a major distraction.
After a bitter betrayal, horse trainer Aidan O’Connor has fled Ireland for a vacation in New York’s Hudson Valley. When he sees the horse with the fighting spirit, he’s inspired with a new goal: to train Phoenix to win. He’s also facing an unexpected new challenge: his feelings for Harper.
How can she dare to open her heart to a man who’ll be there only long enough to break it?
So Harper and Aidan agree: try to keep it professional and focus only on Phoenix and the finish line. But along the way, they could also learn a few lessons in love, trust, and taking chances. And, as painful as it promises to be, saying goodbye.

Harper, Aidan, and, of course, Phoenix captured my heart from the moment they all appeared on the page together and never, ever let go until that final word. I didn’t think I could love the Stay series more, but ALL ROADS LEAD TO YOU just upped the emotional impact of this series for me.
Harper has been a part of this series from the start, in the background, but we got a feel for her through the other couple’s romances. I think I’ve been waiting for her story, to see the hidden parts that she covers up with her devotion to the animals she rescues and trains. Her compassion is obvious, her love for any creature is without doubt, but now she’s going to be faced with the one man who truly, deeply “gets” her and accepts her just as she is without needing to change a thing. I’ve waited for Harper to shine, and she blew me away.
Aidan has his own demons to battle, perhaps that’s part of why he understands Harper so well. I fell in love with this horse trainer with a compassionate heart and a fighter’s soul. If any two people can bring Phoenix back to what he could have always been, it is this couple. Professional respect is obvious but beneath that is a growing attraction that will not be denied. Yet, at the end of the day, a choice has to be made. Can they trust each other enough to make the right choice for them?
I loved ALL ROADS LEAD TO YOU on so many levels. The details of every aspect of this story are amazing, I learned more than I ever expected to through their story. It’s always a delight for me when the couples from earlier books make their way into the current one as well. It was so good to see old book friends once again. And let us not ever forget the unique animals that live at this B & B – priceless, hilarious, precious and I was so glad to see each and every one of them again.
I had a blast with Harper and Aidan, I’ve no doubt that you would as well. There is also a 1001 Dark Nights novella coming out in the Fall of 2019 to keep an eye out for entitled SOMETHING JUST LIKE THIS. If you love a really good love story with believable characters, a solid storyline that will touch your heart then you’ll want to pick up ALL ROADS LEAD TO YOU. I’d not hesitate to recommend this one to any Romance reader.
