From Publishers Weekly:

What with the resurgence of interest in Jane Austen, Regency romances are enjoying a renewed popularity. Veteran novelist Wolf (best known for her prehistoric The Reindeer Hunters), turns in her own delightful addition, one that combines sensuality and passion with a spirited first-person narrative. When Kate Fitzgerald's horse-trader father is killed, she's placed with her malicious uncle, who spitefully maneuvers her into marriage with Adrian, Earl of Greystone. Waterloo hero Greystone accepts the unfortunate situation, but Kate falls deeply in love. Against the colorful racetrack background of the running of the Guineas at Newmarket, she schemes to entrap the aristocrat who murdered her father. One caveat: Kate is wonderful, though a bit dense; it takes her forever to realize Adrian cares for her.

From Library Journal:

Compromised and tricked into marriage by the sadistic machinations of her uncle, Kate Fitzgerald and Adrian Woodrow, Earl of Greystone, try to make the best of things. Murder and mystery add suspense to this romance, which features characters you enjoy (despite the heroine's somewhat illogical jealousy and not-always-credible reactions), some nice subplots, and an occasional glimpse of the darker side of Regency life. The heroine's first-person narrative provides a somewhat Gothic touch. Returning to the Regency period after a foray into other literary areas, Wolf (The Reindeer Hunters, Onyx, 1995) delivers a lively, sensual story that her fans will be waiting for. Readers may also find romances by Amanda Quick and Julie Garwood of interest.
