This is a really sweet book by Andrea Kane. It's the first time i've read this kind of book by her though. I have read others of the same genre and love them.
Nicole Aldridge, daughter of famous jockey, whisks her father into hinding when he receives threatening letters. Desperate to keep both of them safe and fed, she dresses as a boy and answers an ad addressed to her father by the Marquis of Tyreham. As her father's 'protege', she wins the position of jockey, hired by the marquis to run the race of a lifetime.
Dustin Kingsley, Marquis of Tyreham, well known as a thoroughbred breeder and the ton's most sought after bachelor, is restless and empty - that is until he meets the beautiful stranger by the Thames. Determined to win her heart, he finds himself running headlong into an ominous mystery that threatens their future, hell bent on convincing her that he's the only man for her.
What I liked about this book is the male lead's frustrations and feelings towards the girl. hehe It's kinda hilarious to actually read the tall dark hero like this for once. It's a really sweet book and I find myself especially rooting for the guy whenever he has to meet the girl's father. hehehe Hope you enjoy this book like i did.
