When life makes you play a whole new game...
Before 90,000 screaming spectators, professional AFL footballer, Brendan Ward, is injured. Devastated and desperate to recover, Ward’s family forces him to front the fabled racetrack’s horse-whisperer, or face risky surgery.
Zara Phelps is a Reiki Master who specialises in racehorses—not humans. She rescues and rehabilitates animals—not adults. So there is no way she’d touch some fancy footballer as part of her day job.
Yet, when this unwilling pair meet their world unexpectedly tilts… towards each other.
Ward only meant to seek Zara’s help to heal him, but never realised the depth of his injury.
Zara only meant to treat Ward as a patient, instead, he tests her professional and personal ethics. Does she have the talent to help Ward without shredding what’s left of her soul?
Will Ward ever stand under those stadium lights again, or will he be forced to sit on the sidelines forever? And if so, at what cost—the love of his life or the life he loves?
THE FOOTBALL WHISPERER is a small town sports romance that dishes out healthy doses of humour and healing, that go hand in hand in this heartfelt story of two different people, from two different worlds, who face their fears together for love.
