In celebration of my new release, Seduction's Stakes, this week I am running a series of contests. It's a week-long game, and the person with the most correct answers at the end of the week will receive an autographed copy of the book. Some of these require actual reading of the book.
You may comment at any time -- the questions are open for the duration of the contest.
Please leave your answers in the comments section.
So first up!
Which Thoroughbred Legends rivalry does the rivalry in Seduction’s Stakes parallel?
A bit about the story:
Never make a wager you can’t afford to lose...
A member of horse racing’s elite, Maddie McCleery’s got her eye on the Triple Crown and her heart set on her rival’s unraced colt. Owned by the one man she can’t conquer on the track, the same man who humiliated her in a youthful game of Truth or Dare, the colt promises sweet victory. When he refuses her purchase offer, and outruns her at the Kentucky Derby, Maddie sets out to seduce Riley into selling. In the process, she’s seduced, and agrees to a shocking bet. The odds aren’t in her favor, and she’s desperate for the win.
Riley Jennings wants Maddie almost more than the Triple Crown. In his bed, in his shower – wherever he can have her. For two years she’s eluded him and he’s refused her offer on his horse out of spite. Enraptured by her post-Derby game, he learns the lengths she’ll go to for his colt, and sees sure-fire victory. His proposed wager stacks the odds in his favor – if her horse wins the Preakness, he’ll accept her terms. If his horse comes in first, they’ll negotiate his way.
But when the dust settles on the wire just how deep is the winning purse?
While you're waiting, if you want to know Riley a little more, hop on over to author Linda Kage's blog -- she interviewed him this morning!
