On an October evening in 1994, attorney Karen Moon, enters Jazz By the Bay in San Diego’s Seaport Village, and without warning throws away ten years of marathon labor to become a partner at prestigious Warrick, Thompson, when she falls in love with the star attraction, trumpeter Stan Benedict. Never mind that she is on a corporate spying mission to close the club so that her client Waterfront Development can hijack the prime bay location for a hotel/retail shop complex. And never mind that Stan, a world class flirt, has every woman in the audience longing to go home with him. In Stan’s music, Karen hears a deeper truth: behind the performer’s confident, shallow mask is a vulnerable, lonely man longing to be loved.

Addicted to Stan and his music, Karen secretly crosses ethical boundaries and risks her career to save the club from Waterfront. She and Stan begin a tumultuous affair that culminates in an unplanned pregnancy and a hasty marriage. But their relationship is increasingly threatened by the demands of Karen’s job as a highly paid securities lawyer and by the rising crescendo of Stan’s frequent infidelities. Through mounting heartbreak, Karen struggles to hold on to Stan until they are swept apart by a tide of personal and professional loss.

Thirteen years later, without warning, Stan suddenly reappears in Karen’s life to tell her he never stopped loving her. Now a superior court judge and married to Warrick Thompson partner Howard Morgan, Karen is faced with Howard’s threats to destroy her if she leaves her marriage.

Ride Your Heart ‘Til It Breaks is a complex love story about loss, infidelity, forgiveness, and self-discovery.
