A incredible romance blending the magic and mystery of Ireland, horse racing and the mysticism of the magic realm, simply a great book.

This is the third book of the Castlelough series and most likely the last. As with the other two books of the series, it was a delightful read. Very romantic and sweet.

But as with most of Ross's books (and I've said it over and over again in my reviews), I really wish she would create some new characters. Ross often reuses old characters and just puts a new name, age, or gender on them. Also she actually had dialogue and scenes from her other books in here (written exactly the same way just done by other characters). So in that expect, I've lost a lot of respect for Ross as a writer. Even the ring Alec got Kate was the same Erin got from Quinn in "Fair Haven" I think.

It was still a nice read although I wouldn't spend any real money on it. She does write beautifully.

In the exclusive world of horse racing, Alec MacKenna is known as a hardheaded trainer who cares more for an animal's welfare than the financial bottom line. After a public altercation with a callous owner leaves his career on the brink of ruin, Alec's only chance for redemption is Legends Lake, a thoroughbred with Triple Crown potential and a dangerous problem that could end both of their careers. Alec escorts the colt from the bluegrass hills of Kentucky to the emerald pastures of Ireland to meet the woman who bred him, in hopes that she may have the answers that will save them.
Kate O'Sullivan is happy to see her beloved horse come home, even under such disturbing circumstances. In spite of the irascible Yank who came with him, she has the feeling that something in her life is about to change forever. As Alec and Kate work to unravel the mystery of Legends Lake, they discover their shared concern for the troubled racehorse could turn into something extraordinary for each other.
