Unknown-467 What they say: 'Secrets and scandals, love and lust – when the ‘Cheshire Set’ are up against the ‘Footballer’s Wives’ the only common ground is carnal… Flirting and fun seem the perfect antidote for Lottie's battered heart, and where better to find them than back in tranquil Tippermere, home of sexy eventer Rory Steel, the smiling Irish eyes of hunky farrier Mick O'Neal, and mysterious newcomer, model Tom Strachan? But when landowner Marcus James drops dead unexpectedly, and the threat of his waggish wife Amanda selling the heart of the village out from under them looms large, things look like they're about to heat up in and out of the saddle. With tensions running high, and the champagne flowing as freely as the adrenalin, is it any wonder that love catches more than one of them unawares?'

Excerpt – The Wedding
‘This is like herding cats,’ he raised his voice from a mutter to a shriek, ‘look, darling, will you just take the heels off so we can see the guy behind.’
‘I certainly won’t.’ The ‘darling’ in question, who had credits in Doctor Who and had been considered for a role alongside Sean Bean no less (or so she told everyone), glared at Xander. ‘It isn’t my fault he’s small.’ She turned to see the manager of the groom’s football team (known by Pip, and many others, as Yummy Jose), who was not used to having his lack of stature pointed out.
Jasmine, sensing a riot was about to break out, rushed in to usher Jose into a more prestigious spot, and gave the ‘darling’ an assessing look in an attempt to work out just how important she really was as far as readership figures went.
‘She shagged Sean, Jazz.’ Was Xander’s whispered message.
‘Bean or Penn?’
In a quandary, Jasmine weighed the importance of a tenuous link to Game of Thrones against an established link to the World Cup team, which normally would be a no-brainer, except this one was a worthy pin-up with a massive female following and speculation was rife (particularly in their magazine) about an imminent divorce.
Snub Jose and she might be saying goodbye to the promotion she had been working on for the last five weeks. And she had made more sacrifices than normal this time, given that the man she’d had to woo was overweight, had halitosis and a nasty line in the need to spank. Hard. With a brush, which she was sure had left bruises that would never go. ‘We’ll go with Jose, Xander, unless she takes her shoes off.’ Which, she had to admit, was also partly because she had her own ideas on what Jose could be doing after the wedding, and partly because aspiring actresses with big boobs and even bigger egos got on her tits. They needed bringing down a peg or two sometimes, and she had the power.
Pip, who had immediately assessed the situation and taken a seat in the wings with a bottle of bubbly, was working out an angle for an exclusive of her own. And wondering just how much she could piss off the overbearing Jasmine by getting to Jose first.
‘What are you plotting?’ Mick, who had recognised that a mere farrier and part-time eventer wasn’t going to cut the mustard with the glossy mag brigade, had spotted Pip and decided to corner her. Since their little encounter on the trip back from the airport, she’d been surprisingly elusive. Which just made him more determined.
‘Apart from taking over the world?’ Pip, looking surprisingly relaxed, winked and passed over the bubbly so he could have a swig. ‘I so need to corner yummy Jose.’
Mick laughed. ‘Before Jasmine eats him up you mean?’
‘An exclusive would be such a scoop.’ They watched Jasmine stick out her chest as she coaxed the manager into a more prominent position. ‘I hope he doesn’t trip up, he’ll suffocate in those.’
‘Oh, the claws are out today, aren’t they? I’m sure he’d be more than happy to handle both of you.’
‘Yeah, sure he would. Want to know a secret?’
