Publisher Comments:

With sparkling wit and originality, Katie Rose spins a winning tale about a very modern young lady who goes undercover in 1895 New York in search of a missing Thoroughbred — but discovers sizzling passion instead....

Amateur chemist Mary Lou Finch once blew up her own laboratory — but that was nothing compared to her explosive first meeting with Pierce Thorndike. Mary Lou fibbed outrageously to win the position of governess to Thorndike's son. In reality, she is hoping to do a little detective work and find the prize racehorse that was stolen from Thorndike's stable. For Mary Lou's father has bet every dime he has on Damien's Curse — and if the horse is not found before the Saratoga races, her family will be ruined.

Mary Lou had planned a strictly scientific investigation ... until Pierce's sexy blue eyes sent a seductive tingling from her head to her toes. Now, as high stakes, pounding hooves, and irresistible kisses sweep Mary Lou away, the novice sleuth races toward an unknown finish — one that puts her in danger of losing her heart, her innocence, and maybe even her life....

Synopsis:

To preserve her inheritance after her father bets his entire fortune on the outcome of a horse race, amateur chemist Mary Lou Finch masquerades as a governess to take a position with in the home of handsome widower Pierce Thorndike, to find the prized racehorse, which had been stolen from his stables. Original.
