"Strong, Vibrant Characters...Intrigue, Deception and Heroism."--Nora Roberts
From a horse farm in the rugged hills of Ireland to the glamorous racing stables of Maryland...from the elegance of colonial drawing rooms to the flames of revolution...here is the unforgettable love story of Cathleen Cochran and Matthew Forrest-thrown together by fate, divided by war and treachery, and bound by a passion neither can resist.
I've always liked when an author takes the time and does the research to use authentic dialect and an Irish brogue is one of my fave. You should know that the setting begins with an aristocrat who has no experience as a "common man" but finds his way into a lowly groom/trainer job run by his "servant family" including a determined, Irish lass who breeds magnificent horses and instills jealousy among the rich.An immediate chemistry with him develops but she & the horses must flee to the Colonies to escape an unjust English arrest warrant. Maryland is a fresh start for her racing stable. But politics and prejudice cause more trouble as Cathleen and animals must once again escape Maryland to avoid them being used and abused by both Loyalists and Rebel armies at the beginning of the American Revolution. Add in the spice of sexy sensuality throughout to make this a winner.
