In the meantime someone appears to be sabotaging Penscombe and the horsesThe good Rupert is in fine form and is his usual hot headed passionate annoying self Somehow you can't help but root for Rupert no matter how disgracefully he acts If you are a horse lover there are TONS of horse parts in this book even than Riders and Polo The competition to win the Leading Sire award lasted the entire book and had lots of unexpected twists and turns There was a subplot with a scare for Taggie and lots of betrayals and misunderstandingsThe bad Many of the characters seem like newly named versions of previous characters It's like Jilly is running out of ideas for characters in her books so just taking the old ones and giving them new names and voila New character They also seem completely undeveloped so it's really hard to like them And even the ones who are main characters and who are somewhat developed—aren't really very likeable Spoiler alert One of the prevailing themes of the books is Rupert's love for Taggie and his faithfulness to her In this book he cheats on her and it seems so random There is no believable reason the person he sleeps with isn't likeable there is no built up basis that makes the events understandable It's like Jilly just threw it in there for excitement Spoiler Alert overLastly it's a bit annoying how we're supposed to still see Rupert as the sex god hottest man in the universe and how he doesn't age Is he going to be 100 years old and still have this? It's getting a bit tired In spite of the “bad” this book is still a fun romp It's not literature by any means but it's exciting and engaging and a great read
