From New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper comes a Delaney novel that’s sure to set hearts racing, as a globe-trotting bad boy finds himself in hot pursuit of a beautiful thrill-seeker.
Shane Marston may be a champion horse breeder back in America, but down under, in Australia, he’s just a rookie—especially when it comes to the beguiling jockey with the flaming red hair who looks like an angel and rides like a bat out of hell. Her fragile, exquisite exterior belies her addiction to living on the edge. Shane’s used to breaking in horses, but does he have the strength to tame this incredible woman?
Adelaide Delaney pushes herself—and her horses—to the limit on the track, determined to win enough money to make her dreams come true. But racing is more than a means to an end; it’s her one and only passion—that, and the racehorse named Resolute. Until she meets Shane. When he offers up his heart, she discovers all the aching pleasures that had been missing from her life. But Adelaide wonders if she can really give Shane what he most desires: to trade the dangers and the thrills of racing for the sweet safety of his embrace.

Shane Marston was surprised to hear swearing coming from, the woman who had enchanted him with her musical voice, Addie Delaney. Addie was not the dainty woman he first thought she was. Addie was a well-respected blacksmith, horse-racer, and if necessary, a force to be reckoned with. She knew how dangerous horse racing was, but Addie had a goal to meet, and she was determined to do it. She needed money to buy back her father’s land. Her father couldn’t do it anymore; his health was failing. And, losing the land was not an option. Shane had never fallen so fast for a woman. He wanted Addie from the moment; he heard her magical voice. The closer Shane got to Addie; the more Shane knew that he was in trouble. Shane had lost a person dear to him who raced horses and didn’t think he could survive that pain with Addie. So he tried to distance himself from her. But, when someone tried to hurt Addie, every protective instinct in Shane went berserk. He knew then and there that there was no way he could ever let Addie go. I was disappointed in this novel. It didn’t hold my interest as much as I’d hoped. I found the book repetitious at times, and the characters underdeveloped. But, all in all, it is still an enjoyable read. Thank you, Random House Publishing- Loveswept and NetGalley for my advanced review copy.
