I am always leery to read equine-related works because it is difficult for an author to portray horsemanship if they haven't been thoroughly immersed in it. This book does relatively well, but it is written much from an observer's perspective, not from someone who would have actually competed or ridden extensively. Small faults, such as the heroine riding dressage (the word means "training") in JEANS, give this away. (English riders always ride in either jodhpurs or breeches, both of which are tight-fitting and, typically, either tan (for normal work) or white (for competition). Jeans KILL you in the saddle when you're riding long-distance or actively. Other things, such as referring to Cross-Country portion of the Three Day Event as the Endurance event is obviously just misinformed. Some of her horse's actions I have never seen portrayed in other equines (although I have ridden in English events, and worked during the summer on a Colorado horse ranch, as well as having my own horses used for REAL endurance riding), such as "protectiveness" of their particular "master," although aggression in stallions is normal. Horses can prefer women over men, and vice versa, but it is more to do with body language (men tend to be aggressive, women less so) than a particular "thing" the horse has about individual sexes.

I also imagine that the clandestine officers of the various worldwide intelligence services would have something to say about the hero, as well; but I'm not qualified.

I would recommend this for someone not knowledgeable about horses; the mistakes just get a rider bogged down.

A good book about a three day event rider who falls in love with her body guard who was hired by and works for her father in a covert US government anti-terrorist agency. The plot was good and I really enjoyed the book until about half into the romance. Then we see some of the same phrases over and over again. Also, for someone who realistically can describe the horse character, the behind the scences of a horse show, and the event itself made some huge description errors that chopped up the story for me. Like, describing her clothing she puts her in "black jodphurs with a knife crease" for the dressage competition???? I might be a little harsh on this book.

This is a heartwarming book about an equestrian and the FBI agent she falls in love with. He's forbidden to her, yet how can she resist?
