    Another wonderful read by this gifted author!

    Following a glorious prequel, A GENTLEMAN’S GAME is the real first instalment of Theresa Romain’s Romance of the Turf series, and it is every bit as brilliant as I’d hoped it would be. Nathaniel Chandler travels all over England to buy and sell horses; it’s something he’s good at, and just about the only thing his curmudgeon father lets him do, but still he doesn’t get any respect from his pater, the Baronet. The Chandlers will enter horses in the Epsom Derby, but nearing the date of the race, some horses fall ill. Sir William Chandler’s secretary, Rosalind Agate is as competent as they come, and knowledgeable when it comes to horses. Sir Chandler seems to listen to her more than to his own son, and he entrusts her to find out who is aiming to sabotage the chance of one of their horses of becoming a two-time champion, she is to travel to Epsom as well. Nathaniel needs to go to Epsom so that his father acknowledges him at last, and he has to make a deal with Rosalind, who absolutely doesn’t want him to come along. A GENTLEMAN’S GAME is a magnificent foray in the horse racing world of the Regency era, and Ms. Romain’s extensive knowledge – and obvious love – of her subject enlightens as well as entertains. There is a dreamy quality to the writing, an attention to those minute details that make the English countryside come alive in all its beauty. Rosalind and Nathaniel are exceedingly complex people; Rosalind is burdened with so many secrets that she barely exists. Both seek acceptance, respect, freedom, trust, although their issues and families are quite dissimilar. Rosalind and Nathaniel find in each other the strength to break free from the chains that keep them from living a fulfilling life. A GENTLEMAN’S GAME is a character study, a sublime romance, as well as an intricate, multilayered mystery: the ailing horses are but a small part of an extraordinary story woven around a web of lies, greed and deception. A GENTLEMAN’S GAME is a riveting book filled with sorrow, humour, and love in all its forms. Once again, Theresa Romain demonstrates her immense talent and crafts a captivating story, where fascinating characters find love against all odds. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Boring

    BORING. I skipped entire chapters and never missed out on the story! Predictable, slow, low IQ storyline.

    A Gentleman's Game...drew me to the puzzle inside.

    The air of mystery is what sold me. The romance is just an added bonus. I received a copy of Ms. Romaine's latest story in exchange for an honest review. Nathaniel is trying to live down past actions and show he has grown into a responsible businessman. Yet with obstacles that include a doubting father, mysteriously ill horses and a daring infatuation with a woman he doesn't trust, he may not stand a chance. In all I feel that Theresa Romain did a pretty good job of crafting her story around two very misunderstood characters. A Gentleman's Game is the first historical romance that didn't completely sell me on the love story but drew me to the puzzle inside.
