Publisher's Summary

Audie Award, Faith-Based Fiction, 2016
A gifted rider in a world where ladies never race, Maggie Linden is determined that her horse will become a champion. But the one man who could help her has vowed to stay away from thoroughbred racing forever.
An Irishman far from home, Cullen McGrath left a once prosperous life in England because of a horse racing scandal that nearly ruined him. He's come to Nashville for a fresh start, hoping to buy land and begin farming, all while determined to stay as far away from thoroughbred racing as possible. But starting over proves harder than he'd wagered, especially when Maggie Linden's father makes him an offer he shouldn't accept yet cannot possibly refuse.
Maggie is certain that her mare, Bourbon Belle, can take the top purse in the inaugural Peyton Stakes, the richest race ever run in America. Maggie only needs the chance to prove it. To give her that chance - and to save Linden Downs from being sold to the highest bidder - Maggie's father, aging yet wily as ever, makes a barter. His agreement includes one tiny, troublesome detail - Maggie must marry a man she's never met. A man she never would have chosen for herself.

questionable for teens

very good book. very good storyline. I like Christian romance because it doesn't have the prolonged, full chapter "sex scenes". though I usually let my very sweet 17 year old neice read my books after I read and approve them I will let her read this one in another year or more cause though I love Tamera Alexander this book to my surprise went just a few lines closer to questionable for teens. without giving to much away lines like " leaving her gown open so he can appreciate what was beneath" " covering her body with his" and "putting his hand under her shirt waist " might be questionable so I typed it in to give other readers an idea so they can decide if they want to read this book. with that all said I will still read this authors books cause I do enjoy a good clean romance book!

Excellent PG13 Rated Romance

Excellent PG13 rated romance with real characters, experiencing real life in the South after the War Between the states. Alexander wrote with more passion in this book, but fades to black at perfect times. I hate books that pretend Christian married couples don't enjoy sex. This was my next to favorite book from this author. It mixes horse racing, Irish struggles of the time period and the struggles of women. With all that the book remains entertaining.
