Equitainment's Comments

This is a terrific new book and it suits a whole variety of readers. This work of fiction is set late 1700's in the classic Regency Romance period that authors such as Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer introduced us all to. But if you dismiss this novel as just another British-style "Bonnet Drama", you'll be missing out on quite an historical treat.

The three foundation Arabians have arrived in England and set their mark in their children and grand-children, so consequently the fledgling Thoroughbred racing industry is just starting to take off. If you're interested in finding out how racing as we know it today all started but can't face the sometimes heavy slog of reading non-fiction, then this book is one you should try.

It's light and easy to read plus it moves along a quite a steady pace. Combine that with some romance, some war adventure and the great Arabian/Thoroughbred historical content and I think we've all found a winner.

PS: Emery Lee (the author) also has the most terrific Blog page which is packed full of all sorts of historical information about racing and the foundation Arabian sires. She also has a walk through on each chapter in the book which is absolutely fascinating. Make sure you go along and have a look .... it's well worth a visit.

Product Overview

Would you bet it all on just one race? From the first day she learned to ride, Charlotte Wallace lived for the freedom that comes from tearing across the heath on one of her uncle's prized stallions.

But that freedom is shattered when her uncle makes her the pawn in his bet on a high stakes horse race.

Set against the sights, sounds, and excitement of the brand new sport of thoroughbred racing. The Highest Stakes is a story of drama, love, and retribution in a world where pedigree is everything and fortunes can be won and lost in the blink of an eye.
