In the exclusive world of horse racing, Alec MacKenna is known as a hardheaded trainer who cares more for an animal's welfare than the financial bottom line. After a public altercation with a callous owner leaves his career on the brink of ruin, Alec's only chance for redemption is Legends Lake, a thoroughbred with Triple Crown potential and a dangerous problem that could end both of their careers. Alec escorts the colt from the bluegrass hills of Kentucky to the emerald pastures of Ireland to meet the woman who bred him, in hopes that she may have the answers that will save them.

Kate O'Sullivan is happy to see her beloved horse come home, even under such disturbing circumstances.

I love the character - Alec MacKenna and Kate O'Sullivan. It was a good story. Of course, being set in Ireland didn't hurt either.

I actually got this book when I was in my late teens. I'd spent my early childhood years around horses and have a great passion for them even today and it reflects in my choice of books! I remember reading this and just being awestruck. JoAnn Ross puts everything that she is into her writing; heart, soul, life all of it, almost as if she's living the fantasy herself and in turn; so do you. I don't want to give away the entire plot by reviewing but I'll share some. Because Alec has a heart and passion for horses he loses everything he's worked hard to create--his career when he worries more for the horses than what he's told to do. Legends Lake is an amazing beautiful, fast, strong horse that is lightening quick but is having some problems. To try to get to the root of the problem Alec takes Legends Kate O'Sullivan's a horse breeder and she's fey. Though they confuse each other and have a lot of their own personal problems going on Alec and Kate fall in love but can they figure everything out and help Legends Lake get over his troubles? You'll have to read to find out, its just that good! Personally I'd like to think it's a happily ever after. If you get this you'll be sure to add it to your personal library so you can pull it out on those rainy days.

this book is great. I love horses and when I first started reading it I was in awe. Jo Ann Ross really puts her heart into her writing. I have now read two of her books, both great, and cant wate to read another.

In Florida, horse trainer Alec MacKenna informs owner Douglas Wellesley that his thoroughbred Lady Justice should not run today. Douglas forces the issue and the steed is injured in what will turn out to be the last race for this champion horse. Alec¿s concern for the horse¿s best interest costs him his thriving career as a leading trainer as the industry blames him for the accident and for his angry behavior towards the obstinate owner.

Alec gets a second chance when he is asked to work miracles with talented LEGENDS LAKE, a horse that is lightning fast, but tends to jump the oval fence. He takes his new charge to Kate O¿Sullivan's horse farm in Ireland so that the original breeder can help him understand the horse. As they work together, Alec and Kate begin to fall in love although her use of Druid magic to help her horses confuses him. However, he has a hurting stepdaughter still in mourning for the death of her mother (his wife) and she is legally married to a nasty sort making a relationship between them impossible.

LEGENDS LAKE is an entertaining contemporary romance with a bit of magic and plenty of relationship drama to include the title hero. The story line is fun though the horse racing saga of LEGENDS LAKE asks the reader to run quite a stretch. Still, the interpersonal relationships are well designed so that the audience obtains insight into the feelings of several players. More than just the $2 better or the casual Derby follower will enjoy JoAnn Ross¿ Triple Crown winner.
