Overview

A gifted rider in a world where ladies never race, Maggie Linden is determined that her horse will become a champion. But the one man who could help her has vowed to stay away from thoroughbred racing forever.

An Irishman far from home, Cullen McGrath left a once prosperous life in England because of a horse racing scandal that nearly ruined him. He s come to Nashville for a fresh start, hoping to buy land and begin farming, all while determined to stay as far away from thoroughbred racing as possible. But starting over proves harder than he d wagered, especially when Maggie Linden s father makes him an offer he shouldn t accept yet cannot possibly refuse.

Maggie is certain that her mare, Bourbon Belle, can take the top purse in the inaugural Peyton Stakes, the richest race ever run in America. Maggie only needs the chance to prove it. To give her that chance and to save Linden Downs from being sold to the highest bidder Maggie s father, aging, yet wily as ever, makes a barter. His agreement includes one tiny, troublesome detail Maggie must marry a man she s never met. A man she never would have chosen for herself.

Gifted horsewoman Maggie Linden precludes the financial ruin of her family’s estate in the difficult postbellum epoch by agreeing to her ailing father’s plea and marrying the stranger who can rescue their inheritance. Cullen McGrath may have cash and charm, but he has a past—plus, he’s Irish, something the Nashville elites find unacceptable. And Maggie’s determination to race her favorite thoroughbred mare clashes with Cullen’s desire to avoid racing at all costs. What is behind his reluctance, and can Maggie trust him with her heart? The unlikely couple must find a way to overcome their own prejudices and unite, heart and mind, as hateful outside forces threaten their home and happiness. Alexander (To Whisper Her Name) continues her ode to the magnificent Belle Meade Plantation, using it to illustrate questions of race, faith, and loyalty that continue to haunt today. Richly drawn secondary characters add depth, humor, and a sobering perspective on how Reconstruction affected racial relations, social status, and economic fortunes. Fans will appreciate, and applaud the smooth merging of social commentary and a sweet love story. Agent: Natasha Kern, Natasha Kern Literary Agency. (May)
