Ex-naval captain Colin Lord has had his fill of hot-headed adventure.
Now, he wants nothing more than to put his tragic past behind him and
pursue his career as a London veterinarian. Heiress Lady Ariadne St.
Aubyn is on the run. She wants nothing more than to get the last of a
rare breed of racehorse safely away from her wastrel brother before
he and every reward hunter in England can catch her. But when the
fiery noblewoman convinces the reluctant veterinarian to oversee the
health of her equally temperamental stallion, both Colin and Ariadne
find themselves caught up in a wild chase across Regency England in
which love, passion - and the Fastest Horse in the World - are all
part of the stakes. A treat for animal lovers everywhere!
