"Jockeys and Jewels is a sparkling jewel of a romance--clever, entertaining, and touching." --Julianne MacLean, USA Today Bestselling Author"
Kurt MacKinnon resists being dragged back into undercover work. But when his former partner is murdered, he ships his third-string Thoroughbreds to the backwater track where his friend was last seen alive. He vows to make someone pay, even if the killer turns out to be a talented lady rider with a smoking hot body and a disarming smile.
Julie West is chasing an elusive win, struggling to gain entry into the jockey ranks. There's no time for love, but even she can't ignore the magnetic new trainer in town. She agrees to work for Kurt, never suspecting she's already a person of interest--and it's not because of her riding skills.
Kurt never expected his hot-blooded colt to flourish under Julie's deft touch or for his own jaded heart to soften. But when his investigation tightens around the truth, can he keep the woman he loves safe?

Phar Lap first ... daylight second. It became a familiar refrain from racecallers as the great horse tore up every race track and record, becoming the people's champion in 1930s Australia and abroad. For those closest to the mighty stallion it would be the ride of their lives, on and off the track, as careers, relationships and fortunes were made and lost in just a few years of unrivalled glory.
Award winning author Kelly Ana Morey takes the reader beyond the racetrack histories and the popular mythologies and, for the first time in novel form, brings to life the characters and the times that turned Phar Lap into the legend he remains to this day.
Equal parts tragedy, triumph, thriller and mystery, Daylight Second has a heart as big as Phar Lap himself.
It is now being developed as one of the most ambitious television miniseries of all time. Executive Producer Sam Raimi (director of the three Spider-Man movies), in collaboration with Disney/ABC, is creating a 22-episode adaptation of the book to be filmed in New Zealand.
Richard and Kahlan’s story unfolds over ten more novels, collectively known as the Sword of Truth series, concluding with Confessor in 2007. Placing Goodkind in the elite club of #1 New York Times bestselling authors, the series has sold more than twenty million copies to date worldwide.
In Wizard’s First Rule, Goodkind introduced the world to an ordinary forest guide, Richard Cypher, and the mysterious, powerful woman he comes to love, Kahlan Amnell. Learning his true identity, Richard accepts his destiny as the one man who can stop the bloodthirsty tyrant Darken Rahl. Hunted relentlessly, betrayed and alone, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword and invoke something more noble within himself as the final confrontation with Darken Rahl looms.
The importance of Wizard’s First Rule is sourced in Goodkind taking on the toughest of all literary challenges: to tell an electrifying story of action, violence, and adventure that also makes people think, and that would influence the choices and actions of its readers.
