You never know when you'll suddenly meet the one.
In THE ONE, Margaret Gordon was once a prominent Seattle surgeon, and after an accident returns to her hometown, the perfect spot to hide out from everyone and to lick her wounds, with no one around but her horse.
Margaret never considered herself a horse person. But when the now-widowed Joe Wilde drives in one morning with a teenage boy and a horse with a problem, Margaret turns into that klutzy teenage misfit that silently carried a torch for Joe all through school. But when smooth-talking Joe convinces Margaret into working with the temperamental horse, sparks fly and sizzle between them. Only Joe believes Margaret has despised him all his life, but when life throw Joe a curveball he soon finds out the right woman he’s been looking for has been there all along.
Can Joe and Margaret put aside their differences and realize that the other is, The One?

The early stages of a relationship when someone is hiding who they really are. Margaret is remembering the boy she'd had a crush on and how clever he was. She is unhappy with herself feeling as if she once again that Joe will be able to talk her into anything.
She stumbled barefoot on the icy wood floor, completely out of sorts, all because she’d been outsmarted by a man—well, not just any man: Joe Wilde. She had realized too late that he’d controlled their entire argument yesterday, if not the whole situation. He was an absolute master at directing behavior, mainly hers, and she’d walked right into it. She had no intention of working with that horse, or so she tried to tell herself, but now she remembered what a clever kid Joe had been at school. He could talk his way into or out of any situation he wanted, always in a way that made other people think it was their idea. As with most things, he’d gotten better with age. Crap!
