Summary (from Goodreads)Lady Amanda Locke has struck out miserably in her two Seasons on the marriage mart. Beautiful, titled, and charming – even if she does talk a bit too much, Amanda doesn’t understand why love eludes her. Even her father, the Duke of Norford, is so perplexed he is prepared to take drastic measures to ensure his daughter’s happiness. Now, as Amanda begins her third Season, she gets a little help from Cupid, a darkly handsome horse breeder whose knowledge of basic animal attraction has guided him in arranging more than a few successful matches between the young ladies and gentlemen of the ton. Hired by Amanda’s family, Devin Baldwin produces results for Amanda and soon she is happy to be courted by one of his clients, the dashing Viscount Altone. In order to secure Amanda’s match to a nobleman obsessed with horse racing, Devin must teach Amanda how to overcome her fear of horses. But as Devin shows her the joys of riding, hunting, and racing, will their own hearts run astray as Amanda finds herself falling in love with Cupid himself?

My Summary: Amanda Locke is looking for love - but after two Seasons of being on the market, she still hasn't managed to fall in love (or snag a husband!). When she meets Devin Baldwin, she dislikes him immediately. Unfortunately for her, he is soon hired by her parents to help her find a match.

He does his job well, but before Amanda can secure her position in the life of Viscount Altone, she must get over her fear of horse - and that's where Devin comes in. As a horse breeder, he'll help Amanda get over her fear of horses and win her man... but can she resist falling in love with him in the process?

My Thoughts: Another awesome romance read from Johanna Lindsey! Amanda and Devin were really likable, and the plot was paced perfectly. I loved the inclusion of characters from her other books in this one - it really helped to tie the series together well but wasn't a necessity for understanding what was going on in the novel. This book was very easy to read, and you can really feel the chemistry between Amanda and Devin - it developed very realistically, which made me like it a lot more; don't you hate insta-love? I know I do, so this was a refreshing change.  

Final Thoughts: I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of romance novels and anything to do with historical fiction. It's a great summer read, so check it out!
