Making Her Mark
Her best friend’s brother and a betting scam. Can the rules be broken to help a friend, or will it only be hearts that are broken?
Jockey Rachel Bassett has worked hard to prove herself in the male dominated racing world, and on the day of her greatest success, her first group one winner, her world comes crashing down when a public breakup with her girlfriend leaves her temporarily homeless. When her friend offers her a place to stay, she doesn’t want to spend any time with Allira’s handsome brother, but when his friend gets involved in a racing scandal, she has a decision to make.
Footy player Jacob Mullagh has a loving family who nurtured his athletic career. He cares deeply for his sister and his friends, while working hard on maintaining a clean image. His sister’s new housemate is an athlete who is almost perfect for him, except for one thing: she’s the opposite to all the strong, nurturing women in his life – bold, brash, prickly.
When some of Jacob’s mates get involved in a punter’s club gone wrong, and Rachel is accused of breaking the rules of racing, Jacob must choose between helping his friends, believing in Rachel, or keeping his clean image.
