Nathaniel Chandler has never done anything right in his father's eyes, so when the family's horses need to be taken to the Derby, he volunteers and hopes that he can finally prove to his father that he can contribute to the family business. His father agrees, but only if Nathaniel will take his father's new secretary, so that she can report back about every step of the trip.
Having arrived at the Chandler estate under false pretenses, Rosalind Agate, doesn't want to go with Nathaniel. She needs to be on the estate to complete the job she is really there for. But when Nathaniel offers her much needed money, Rosalind agrees to accompany him.
Neither expected that their time together would bring them a love that neither were looking for!
I enjoyed this story so much more than the introduction to this series (The Sport of Baronets). It was probably because it was longer and there was much more time for the H/H to fall in love with each other.
I also enjoyed this story because we have people form different social classes and that always adds another layer to the story. Without going into too many details, we also have the storyline of who Rosalind's real employer is and how that comes into play.
I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the Romance of the Turf series which comes out in October!
