In Book One of Romance of the Turf, a refreshing new Regency series from rising star Theresa Romain, a mystery demanding to be solved brings unlikely allies together in more ways than one...

How far will a man go

Talented but 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 become suspiciously ill just before the Epsom Derby, and he begins to suspect his father’s new secretary is not as innocent as she seems.

To win a woman’s secretive heart?

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…

Romain—Favorite Quotes from A Gentleman’s Game

Picking favorite quotes from a book can be difficult for me, because I always want to know more. The context of a quote is sometimes what gives a phrase its punch or poignancy. Snip out a sentence? Please! Offer me a quote, and I’ll take a chapter.

Now that I’ve admitted that, you’ll see why this list is the way it is. I’ve picked some of my favorite snippets from A Gentleman’s Game, a horse-racing road romance between cheerful (or is he?) Nathaniel and secretive (or is she?...okay, she is) Rosalind. I hope these little bits of story will give you a feel for their romance!

1. “Horse racing is a gentleman’s game. It’s a house of cards on a foundation of trust.”

This she had learned at once in her few weeks as Sir William’s secretary. So much of horse racing depended on trust. The trust that a horse was who his owner said, the trust that the jockey would race his best, trust that the odds would pay off and that bookmakers would honor the wagers scribbled in their little notebooks.

Such trust was a luxury for the wealthy. It was far too costly for those who could little afford to lose.

2. It would be wrong, completely wrong, to kiss her now. He knew that. This was neither a kissing sort of place, nor should it be a kissing sort of conversation. But somehow with her they all became the kissing sort of conversation.

3. She wanted him to keep smiling at her, just like that, and for the smile to stay as he learned more of her. To stay and never to fall, until the expression became as familiar to her as the shape of her own scars.

4. “You push back every time I come close, but not so hard that I think you want to break me. Just hard enough that I think you want to see if I’ll stay.” He lifted his head to press a kiss to her temple. “I’ll stay.”

5. “I could kiss you again,” she said. “If that would be enough.”

“Of course it won’t be enough.” He almost growled. “But I’ll take it.”

Closing the distance between them with a swoop, he fisted his hands in her hair, tumbling it and sending pins flying. She had expected a sweet good-bye kiss, a gentle farewell, but he pulled her into his arms like a starving man seeking a feast.
