Image of Fast & Loose (Berkley Sensation)

This warm, easygoing story, set in
the world of horse racing, has very
likable characters, especially a hero who's basically a nice guy and
some great secondary characters.
The way the hero pursues the heroine
is lovely.

Needing a place to stay in Louisville for two weeks while his horse is prepared to run in the Kentucky Derby, top thoroughbred trainer Cole Early rents a house. Lulu, who was talked into renting her home by her friend, is not all that happy about the arrangement, but she needs the money.

A chance meeting between Cole and Lulu leaves them strongly attracted to one another, but Lulu is sure nothing can come of it. Though an artist who creates colorful sculptures from glass, Lulu hides herself beneath nondescript clothes. Cole, though, is sure that Lulu is the woman for him, especially when he discovers that it's her house he's renting. Now all he has to do is convince her. (Berkley Sensation, Apr., 304 pp., $7.99)
