After years apart, old friends Lady Kate Whelan and Evan Rhys reunite at a race. They've been masking their feelings for each other for years, but when Evan must protect Kate from her late husband's secrets, he may not be able to resist her any longer.
After being widowed by a steeplechase accident in Ireland, Lady Kate Whelan abandons the turf. But once her mourning is complete, her late husband's debts drive her to seek help in Newmarket amidst the whirl of a race meet. There she encounters antiquities expert Evan Rhys, her late husband's roguish friend—whom she hasn't seen since the day of his lordship's mysterious death.
Now that fate has reunited them, Evan seizes the chance to win over the woman he's always loved. But once back within the old stone walls of Whelan House, long-held secrets come to light that shake up everything Kate thought she knew about her marriage. Now she wonders who she can trust with her heart—and Evan must decide between love and a truth that will separate him from all his heart desires.

As Derby Day draws near, her wit and his charm make for a successful investigative team...and light the fires of growing desire.
