One Race to Ruin by Cara Maxwell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Stirrup the Steam!

This is Cara Maxwell’s steamiest book yet! It also had me on tenterhooks at certain points. The will-they-or-won’t-they dynamic between Eric and Daniela is palatable and creates an irresistible current of tension that made this book impossible to put down!

Daniela is a fiery red-head determined to live life on her own terms. With her mother dead, her father has shipped her off to live with relatives–but the situation soon becomes untenable for her. Meanwhile, Daniela is quickly risking her reputation with a side mission of her own–racing horses in disguise. Her passion for horses leads her to a newfound passion–for the Earl of Fordham, a man who is infuriating, exasperating, and all too tempting for her own good.

As the first in a brand new series, One Race to Ruin also sets up a suspenseful subplot–similar to the mystery that runs through Sabrina Jeffries’ Duke Dynasty series. I was left eager to follow some of the characters into the new book in order to find out how it all plays out.

I received an ARC copy of this book for review purposes.
