In The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, a pair of young riders, Kate (AKA Puck) and Sean, enter an incredibly dangerous race. Riders must attempt to control their demonic water horses to make it across the finish line — or sink into a watery grave. Dangers aside, the novel pays a lot of attention to Puck and Sean’s budding romance.
