    Love Horses

    A well-built plot, with enough twists to keep the story moving along. While I enjoyed the main characters as individuals; the romance aspect fell flat for me. I did not feel a connection between them; and the sudden desire had no basis. To be perfectly honest, it was the wit with which the writing had and the fact it centered about horses that had me finish this novella.

    I ran out of superlatives... just read it!

    THE SPORTS OF BARONETS is Theresa Romain at her absolute best! This book is a splendid introduction to the author’s new Romance of the Turf series, which promises to be most impressive. A week before the Two Thousand Guineas Stakes, Sir Bartlett “Bart” Crosby notices that something seems wrong with Golden Barb’s foreleg, the colt that will race. Bart desperately needs to win this race, his reputation and fortune depend on it. The family finances are in a dire state, and as if things couldn’t get any worse, Miss Hannah Chandler pays him a visit. Hannah, whom Bart hadn’t seen in years, is the bearer of bad news: it appears that Bart’s mother sold Golden Barb to Hannah’s father the day before. Unfortunately for Bart, the document appears in order; the Chandlers and the Crosbys have been racing rivals for decades, and this will not improve matters between the two families. A commotion interrupts Hannah and Bart’s heated argument: Golden Barb has vanished along with Bart’s groom, and two men have been injured. Hannah is as determined as Bart to win this race, and even though they don’t see eye to eye, they will search for the missing horse together. THE SPORTS OF BARONETS is an original concept, and while I have been a fan of Ms. Romain for a while, this book surpasses anything she has ever written, in my opinion. The book is meticulously researched, and I was totally captivated by the whole racing angle, whether the vivid descriptions of the stables, and the bookmakers’ shenanigans. The story is riveting, the plot twists are most unpredictable, the pacing is impeccable, and the prose absolutely exquisite. The dialogues are brilliant; Hannah and Bart begin by trading insults in the most creative manner, which turns to candid conversations after a while, and the flirting is sinfully delightful. THE SPORTS OF BARONETS is a novella that reads like a full-length novel; Romance of the Turf will be an extraordinary series, and I already cannot wait for the next instalment! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

But, they do both believe that they own the colt Golden Barb and before they can come to an agreement as to who the true owner is he is kidnapped. And they have to work together to find him. I received this copy of The Sport of Baronets by Theresa Romain from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
