Overview

In Book One of Romance of the Turf, a refreshing new Regency series from rising star Theresa Romain, a mystery demanding to be solved brings unlikely allies together in more ways than one...

How far will a man go
Talented but troubled, the Chandler family seems cursed by bad luck-and so Nathaniel Chandler has learned to trade on his charm. He can broker a deal with anyone from a turf-mad English noble to an Irish horse breeder. But Nathaniel's skills are tested when his stable of trained Thoroughbreds become suspiciously ill just before the Epsom Derby, and he begins to suspect his father's new secretary is not as innocent as she seems.

To win a woman's secretive heart?
Nathaniel would be very surprised if he knew why Rosalind Agate was really helping his family in their quest for a Derby victory. But for the sake of both their livelihoods, Rosalind and Nathaniel must set aside their suspicions. As Derby Day draws near, her wit and his charm make for a successful investigative team...and light the fires of growing desire. But Rosalind's life is built on secrets and Nathaniel's on charisma, and neither defense will serve them once they lose their hearts...

"Utterly charming." -RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars, for To Charm a Naughty Countess
"Superbly written...it is easy to see why Romain is one of the rising stars of Regency historical romance." -Booklist, for To Charm a Naughty Countess

Romains first Romance of the Turf Regency sets off at an unsteady gallop and unfortunately falls short of her usual standards. For 10 years, Rosalind Agate has been ruled by a tyrant Welshman named Tranc, via his connection with Rosalinds Aunt Annie. He orders the young woman to spy and steal for him. Her latest assignment is to serve as secretary to thoroughbred breeder and baronet William Chandler as he prepares horses to enter in the Derby Stakes. When she falls for Chandlers son, Nathaniel, she hopes hell be her ticket away from Tranc. The characters and sprightly banter are classic Romain, but the mystery is weak at best, as Rosalind searches Williams records for what ends up being a poor excuse for a MacGuffin. The plot stumblesnearly coming to a complete haltover a subplot about an inexplicable assault on the baronets horses. Romain seems to have been inspired by a handful of charming characters who couldnt find their way to a worthwhile story. Agent: Paige Wheeler, Creative Media Agency. (Feb.)
