London waitress, Pippa Taylor has no interest in horses or country-living. But when she inherits Peace Offering, a hopeless racehorse, she embarks on a career change in order to see her late uncle’s wish to run him in the Grand National come true.
*
But having talked her way into a job as racing secretary to champion National Hunt trainer, Jack Carmichael and moved to the West Country, Pippa finds herself faced with more daunting obstacles than even the Grand National can throw at her.
*
The most challenging of them all is her relationship with her new boss.
*
Jack, although easy on the eye, is moody and fiery-tempered and certainly not easy on the ear. After a Christmas they would both rather forget, danger and deception threaten Pippa’s life in the country and as her time at Aspen Valley Racing Stables draws to its conclusion she discovers Peace Offering is not the only thing she must fight to keep.

What they’re saying about it:

“Keeping the Peace was my first Hannah Hooton book.. it was also my first horse-racing book. This book is everything I was looking for in a “racey” romance novel from racing newbies to crazy bosses, amazing jockeys to crazy friends. This book was an engrossing, entertaining read. You’ll enjoy it even if you’re NOT horse-crazy and if you are… well, there aren’t many books better than Hannah’s to cater to your love for horses and romances!”

 
“…I recommend it to everyone; I am not usually a romantic person (my choices of genre for movies and literature do not, usually, have anything to do with that genre) however I found this story and I definitely liked it a lot.
Give her story a read, everyone, because it is a well written one that is most definitely worth your time.”
 *
“This book keeps you on the edge of your seat! It brings forth a side of racing that some of us don’t ever really get to know. The characters are superbly written and it was a joy to read!!! This is a must-buy for those who love racing, horses, and, of course, romance!”

When Ginny Kennedy returns home to Newmarket to revive the family’s racing stable, she has just one thing on her mind: winning the coveted Dewhurst Stakes at the end of the season.

Not only is she faced with the challenges of making her way in a man’s world, but she must also cope with her next door neighbour, rival trainer Julien Larocque.

Sharing the same ambition with the suave and successful Frenchman is just part of her problems though and when her world takes a sinister turn, Ginny must decide who she can and cannot trust.

Come Race Day, she realises that there is a lot more at stake than just a trophy…

What they’re saying about it:

“With a haplessly well-intentioned heroine, a strong silent hero and a desperate race between sexual attraction and ambition, this story is Georgette Heyer updated to the 21st Century. The horse-racing background is vivid and pacey without being overwhelming for the uninitiated. ”

“A great first novel by a new young author. Easy reading – romance, intrigue and the insight into the racing world makes a nice change.”
 
“I have read several of Hannah Hooton’s books and have to say i have loved every one, she has an incredible talent for making completely lovable and relatable characters. As someone who likes horses but doesn’t follow horse racing at all i did worry i wouldn’t understand some of the plot, but i was pleasantly surprised when i read the book I understood everything, it is really a great story, i promise you will not be disappointed!”
