An original novella introducing Romance of the Turf, Theresa Romain’s exciting new Regency romance series…
The lives of Sir Bartlett Crosby and Hannah Chandler have been marked by fierce competition between their elite families…the perfect breeding ground for a mutual attraction neither can deny.
Bart hopes to conquer “the turf” through victory in a much-touted match. Should his heavily-favored colt win, the Crosby reputation and fortunes would be revived. Bart’s plan seems poised for success until the lovely Hannah Chandler, daughter of a noted rival trainer, turns up claiming ownership of the colt. When Hannah insists on claiming her purchase, the prize colt disappears from Bart’s stable. Theft or treachery? As Hannah and Bart rush to solve the mystery before race time, they uncover a scandalous truth about their families’ pasts-a truth that has the potential to either destroy both their futures, or to guide them to a love they never imagined.
The Sport of Baronets was entertaining, but even though I enjoyed it there just wasn’t enough character build-up, which I like reading. BUT..this is a novella so I won’t hold it against the author! It just means that I will certainly be reading more from Theresa and I will probably fall in love with her full length novels!
This reminded me very much of Romeo and Juliet, but I still thought it was a very sweet love story. I absolutely LOVE the banter between Hannah and Bart, it helped form a very awesome relationship. Such a great couple!
Very easy read and very enjoyable! The short snippet of the next book wasn’t enough for me though and I can’t wait to read it!!
*I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
