When legendary film director Dorian Rasmirez gambles his fortune on an opulent remake of Wuthering Heights, he knows it’s his last chance to salvage his career....
The 17-year-old daughter of a millionaire Newmarket breeder, Milly has watched her odious older brother become a jockey, and pursue a career she knows should be hers. Forbidden to race because of a childhood accident and her mother's notions about unladylike behavior, Milly is still secretly determined to follow her dreams. Then Bobby Cameron strides into her life, and nothing is ever the same.
She accepts his offer to work for a year at Highwood, desperate to make a name for herself in racing, and for Bobby to see her as a woman.
Caught up in a world where unscrupulous horse owners and billionaire media moguls rub shoulders, and more, with oversexed racing widows and fiercely ambitious jockeys, Milly must discover if she has what it takes to be a winner, on the track, in the bedroom, and, ultimately, in the game of love.
"The Horse Whisperer and National Velvet meet Jackie Collins behind the barn in this libidinous fly-on-the-stall peek at horse racing and California real estate chicanery, just in time for beach read season." (Publishers Weekly)
What disappointed you about Showdown?
This book was short on story. Story lines opened up and never went anywhere. Bobby the main male character was a a brooding pathological git up til the last 3 minutes of the story. Don't waste your time or your 2 credits.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The pronunciation was bad in places. Made me roll my eyes.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Frustration and disappointment were the order of the day.

Would you try another book from Tilly Bagshawe and/or Gillian Doyle?
I've read and enjoyed many other Tilly Bagshawe books but this just didn't do it for me even after going back to it 3 different times
I thought this book was an excellent read. A definite must if you like horse tales along with biting romance and interesting characters. A great way to pass my commute time every morning.
