City of fortune

Victoria Thompson (Author)
"Wealthy but uncouth Sebastian Nolan has invited his lawyer, Gideon Bates, and his lovely new wife, Elizabeth, to attend the famous Belmont Stakes. Now that his venture into thoroughbred racing has allowed them entry into society, Nolan is hoping to find his daughter, Irene, a rich potential suitor. Irene Nolan seems more interested in horses than husbands, and she jumps at the chance to show Elizabeth her horse, Trench, and introduce her to his rider, Cal Regan. Elizabeth soon realizes there is more than just a working relationship between Irene and Cal, something Irene's father would never allow. When Cal and Trench take a terrible tumble, Elizabeth and Gideon learn that the mishap was not simply bad luck -- the horse and rider are victims of sabotage. Elizabeth knows that to help Irene and Cal, she is going to need to create the quintessential con. With the ever-honest Gideon at her side, she enlists those closest to her to come up with a scheme that will either ensure young Irene and Cal a first-place finish or have disastrous consequence . . ."-- Provided by publisher
