About the Edition

Talented by troubled, the Chandler family seems cursed by bad luck -- and so Nathaniel Chandler has learned to trade on his charm. He can broker a deal with anyone from a turf-mad English noble to an Irish horse breeder. But Nathaniel"s skills are tested when his stable of trained Thoroughbreds becomes suspiciously ill just before the Epsom Derby, and he begins to suspect his father"s new secretary is not as innocent as she seems. Nathaniel would be very surprised if he knew why Rosalind Agate was really helping his family in their quest for a Derby victory. But for the sake of both their livelihoods, Rosalind and Nathaniel must set aside their suspicions. As Derby Day draws near, her wit and his charm make for a successful investigative team...and light the fires of growing desire. But Rosalind"s life is built on secrets and Nathaniel"s on charisma, and neither defense will serve them once they lose their hearts.
