I have read other books by Tamera and have always been entertained but what really drew me to wanting to read this novel in particular is the fact that it is about horses. It has a beautiful horse on the cover of the book and lets be real here, sometimes a good story of a girl and her horse are exactly what the day needs!
The first few pages of the book really had me interested and curious as to where the story would lead. That is usually the mark of a good read ;)
I say that this one is no exception and is not only interesting because of the historical things behind it but because it is well written and easily kept me entertained and engaged with the story and the welfare of the characters.
Maggie is a stubborn Southern Belle with a determined streak a mild wide. When her beloved dad asks the unthinkable of her to marry a total stranger, logic and reason fight for domination over emotion.
The man in question is Irish through and through and thought he was done with horse racing of any kind for the rest of his life.
But a life altering proposition offering him Maggie's hand in marriage in exchange for possibly everything he dreamed when coming to America might just be too tempting to pass up.
Two unlikely people linked together, both trying to make a dream a reality. But how truly different are those dreams and will they find a middle ground in the end together or take their separate dreams? Will Bourbon Belle win the richest race? Will Cullen love racing again and perhaps even love Maggie???
Let me know if you read this one and what your thoughts on it were!
