An original novella introducing Romance of the Turf, Theresa Romain’s exciting new Regency romance series
The lives of Sir Bartlett Crosby and Hannah Chandler have been marked by fierce competition between their elite families...the perfect breeding ground for a mutual attraction neither can deny.
Bart hopes to conquer “the turf” through victory in a much-touted match. Should his heavily-favored colt win, the Crosby reputation and fortunes would be revived. Bart’s plan seems poised for success until the lovely Hannah Chandler, daughter of a noted rival trainer, turns up claiming ownership of the colt. When Hannah insists on claiming her purchase, the prize colt disappears from Bart’s stable. Theft or treachery? As Hannah and Bart rush to solve the mystery before race time, they uncover a scandalous truth about their families’ pasts—a truth that has the potential to either destroy both their futures, or to guide them to a love they never imagined.
It's such a sweet story, a pair of horsefolk from feuding families, coming together in innocence and willingness to challenge the old hates.
The one thing in Ms. Romain's writing that annoys me is the use of the verb "disrespecting". It's a late 20th century term: it does not belong in a Regency setting, be it narrative, speech, or thought.
"Showing a lack of respect" is proper.
