Publisher's Summary

Dan thinks about just driving, leaving the whole mess behind. He's got enough money. He could just arrange to get his stuff and his horse shipped to wherever he's going. Taking off is what he used to do when things got to be too much, and it worked pretty well, really.
Dan Wheeler thought he'd found lasting love and stability with his life and work partner Justin Archer. But when Dan finds himself alone again, still working as a horse trainer for Justin's parents, he has to find a way to accept that his perfect life is gone forever.
Then he meets billionaire Evan Kaminski, who arrives to buy a horse for his younger sister, and Evan's lover Jeff Stevens, a horse trainer who seems to understand more than just Dan's job. Struggling to deal with all the upheaval in his life, Dan finds himself drawn to both Evan's mercurial passion and Jeff's quiet wisdom. Is Dan strong enough to take a chance on new love, or would it be better-safer-for him to be alone?

A Pleasant Experience...

Though I am a gay boy, I am pretty much a prude. At the time of this purchase, I was unaware of a M/M/M story/romance, thus when I began to realize where this book was heading...I almost stopped reading. So glad I didn't. Oh goodness, I loved this story. Dan is the best centralized character and how Evan and Jeff interact within the story is fantastic. I enjoyed Peter B. Brooke's narration and how he brought the characters to life and I instantly became a fan of Kate Sherwood's writing. I loved this story so much, I had to see what happens next. Went to Amazon and purchased the rest of this series on my Kindle and ate it up until I was bursting with these fantastic characters. One of the greatest compliments I can give to Sherwood's story telling is that by the end of this book, I began to wonder about the possibilities...Excellent book and I recommend the entire series!!!

An M/M/M story that exceeds sex as sport

I first read Dark Horse in in its print format in February of 2014 and at the time I gave it 5 stars. Now, more than a year later, I've listened to the audio version and feel that the audiobook version is great as well.

In some parts the audiobook format made the story new again and it worked even better than before. I generally have a problem with male narrators "doing" female voices and that happens in a number of spots in this tale. Yet, narrator, Peter B. Brooke gives credible and distinctive voices and accents to so many of the characters that inhabit this tale, that amid the accents and characterizations, I pretty much got past my initial difficulties.

Oftentimes a M/M story involving more than two main characters devolves into a long, sometimes repetitive smut-fest but that's not the case in this tale. The sex is certainly one of the motivating factors in this story. All three main characters are well envisioned and complete characters in themselves and that depth adds to the strength of their mutual attraction. The supporting characters are also well developed and they bring their own appeal to the overall tale. Finally the setting, the world of eventing and the horses and people that inhabit it, are well researched and presented and much much more than mere details to add variety to some cookie-cutter m/m/m fantasy.

By all means, I'd recommend this story to any fans of M/M fiction, particularly those that enjoy a well crafted story with well developed characters; Characters motivated by the baggage that they bring and the events we see and not just some two dimensional constructs inhabiting a fantasy.
