Today author is Feliz Faber: Ever since I first discovered books, I knew what I wanted to do when I grew up. I was going to have a job where I could read all day long and where I could wallow in words and play with them to my heart's desire. However, life had something else in store for me. You know the saying, life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans, right? Tell me about it. Anyway, before I knew it, I found myself in college learning a "decent profession" - one which, although it includes a lot of talking, is as far removed from "playing with words" as possible. What followed were years of doing an insane variety of odd jobs to finance my study, and afterwards years of traveling in order to make a career. This too passed, though, and I eventually put down roots. Today, I live with one man, two dogs, four budgies and about seven dozen fish. When I'm not glued to my computer or a book, I run, play the flute, drive around on my motorbike, or try for the umpteenth time to get a single hydrangea to survive in my garden. So far, I've killed about twenty of them. Hope the poor darlings won't hold it against me and await me in heaven one day.

How can love between two men possibly be responsible for a horse's death during the Kentucky Derby? Reporter Will Yeats wants to know the truth.
Seventeen years ago, a love affair between a jockey and a horse trainer and a tragic accident on the racetrack scandalized the horseracing world. But Nic Pithiviers and Louis Meerow seem to have no desire to set the record straight: they refuse the interview and send attorney Francis LeBon to question Will's motives.
Francis has a special place in his heart for Nic and Louis, who taught him to take pride in himself as a gay man, and he'll stop at nothing to protect them from a gossipmongering reporter. However, Francis doesn't expect the reporter's honesty and genuine determination to exonerate two men falsely accused... or the growing attraction to Will he feels.
While visiting with Nic and Louis at their horse training center in France, Will uncovers a web of intrigue, secrets, and old lies, and he unwittingly sets a series of perilous events into motion that not only threaten to destroy his budding relationship with Francis, but Nic and Louis's decades-long commitment as well.
