THE BLACK SHEEP AND THE HIDDEN BEAUTY

Author(s): 

Book two of the Men of Trinity Inc. series
is a good but not great basic romance. Kauffman picks up where The Black Sheep and the Princess left off, and readers get another hefty dose of seduction, suspense and sex mixed in with tender and exciting interactions between humans and horses.

Computer guru Raphael Santiago is drawn to the new manager at Dalton Downs, yet he's never even spoken to her. Elena Caulfield is hiding out, sheltering a pregnant horse and taking a break from the fast-paced lifestyle of the horse tracks. When she agrees to give Raphael riding lessons, which take a turn toward the romantic, Raphael discovers that Elena is harboring a very big secret -- one that could eventually endanger them all.
