“ARC given for an honest review”

Suave Nathaniel Chandler can just as easily talk himself into a willing lady’s embrace as he can broker a business deal. But no amount of charm is sufficient to cloak a chilling, recent discovery: every one of his award-winning racehorses has suddenly and mysteriously fallen ill.

Determined to discover the source of the problem, Nathaniel searches for all possible explanations. His suspicions fall on the alluring Rosalind Agate, his father’s new secretary. But for the sake of both their livelihoods – and his recent attraction – Nathaniel sets aside his suspicions. Instead, he decides to use Rosalind’s wit and her wiles as key components of his investigative team.

As the upcoming race draws near, Nathaniel and Rosalind must use every trick up their sleeves to not only catch the culprit, but also satisfy the desire that burns between them…

First Sentences

Nathaniel Chandler sometimes thought he had travelled every road in England, and he liked them all.

My Thoughts

I enjoyed this regency novel. I think the thing that I loved most about this book wasn’t the romance between Nathaniel and Rosealind, but the puzzle and mystery of solving why the horses were sick. I loved that this book was about two people being together from the different social class. I found that this book was deeper than what I though it would have been. It was a wonderful surprise for me. The dialogue between the two was fun and I really sparked off the pages. It was a good romantic story full of mystery and suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
