This free short story e-romance by bestselling author Kathleen Y'Barbo encompasses a season of adventure, surprise, and romance at the Merriweathers' summer home on Spaniard's Island in Georgia. Read this prequel to gain insight into the generations to come in The Secret Lives of Will Tucker series. As a bonus, this free eBook also contains the first chapter of Flora's Wish, the first full novel in the series.

For Millicent Merriweather, the summer of 1844 is unforgettable. As determined as she is to avoid her parents' schemes to find her an eligible husband, she realizes that the afternoon's view from the porch is not entirely dreary. Down on the beach, the men cheer wildly as they catch sight of the horses rounding the bend and racing toward them. While Millicent's brother Langley urges the bay faster, the dark-haired stranger leans in and matches the pace astride the paint. Much is at stake—for the winner earns the right to claim a Merriweather family possession of his choice.

Who wins the race, which family treasure does the winner choose, and how does a lighthearted Georgian summer adventure blossom into a beautiful romance?
