The Series

The Calm Before the Storm

After the sudden passing of her husband, Charlie Jenkins has found it hard to go about living life with the same kind of fire and tenacity. Her two kids, Ryan and Skylar, are stuck in the same rut. Together, they’ve barely gotten through each day, and the idea of “normal” is starting to seem impossible: that is, until one night when Charlie’s friends take her out on the town. Charlie’s world is turned upside down when she meets Genuine Storm, a horse that seems to be going through a rough patch similar to her own. As she rediscovers her lifelong dream to race a horse in the Kentucky Derby, Charlie must combat the feelings that come with moving on from the startling loss of her husband, as well as those surrounding the intriguing man helping her with her horse. With her friends and family around her, she relearns how to live life to the fullest, and possibly achieve her dreams.

The Eye of the Storm

When Lilly Garrett came out of retirement to ride Genuine Storm in the Kentucky Derby, no one expected them to win. Now, the Preakness is coming up and while Storm gets ready for his next big race, Lilly is confronted with a past that no longer wants to stay hidden. Lost love, heartbreak, betrayal—everything comes to light in the two weeks leading up to the big race. With the help of Charlie, Doug, and the rest of the team, Lilly must confront the reasons she left racing in the first place. Does she want to be a jockey again, or will she leave the sport behind forever? Time is running out, and the team is desperate. Will Lilly make her decision in time to help the people who count on her? Most importantly, will Genuine Storm stand a chance at the Triple Crown if Lilly Garrett isn’t the one riding him?

The Height of the Storm

After back-to-back wins at the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, the world is anxiously awaiting the Belmont Stakes, eager to see if Genuine Storm will take home the first Triple Crown in thirty-seven years. Behind the scenes, though, the stakes are higher—and much more dangerous. Less than three weeks before the final race, a devastating barn fire tears through Shamrock Hill Farm, changing everyone’s lives forever. The relationships built around one exceptional racehorse are shattered and scattered between hospitals, horse whisperers, and conflicting obligations, and several huge secrets and suspicious characters threaten to keep them apart for good. Without Charlie and Doug, Lilly and Buck, Molly, Jenny, Ryan, Skylar, and the rest of Shamrock working together as a team, can Storm even make it to the track, much less the finish line?
