Gibt es etwas Heimtückischeres, als dem Pony eines todkranken Mädchens den Fuß abzuhacken? Ja, die Tatsache, dass Detektiv Sid Halley dem Schuldigen nichts anhaben kann. Denn der ist im ganzen Land bekannt - nicht als Täter, sondern als Talkmaster. Dick Francis, geboren 1920, war viele Jahre Englands erfolgreichster Jockey, bis ein mysteriöser Sturz 1956 seine Karriere beendete. Fast 50 Jahre lang schrieb er Thriller, die das Pferderenn- und Wettmilieu als Hintergrund haben. Seine 42 Romane wurden alle Bestseller. Dick Francis starb 2010.
Grant Maxwell, aka Max, wakes to find his coffeepot has died in the night. Not one who can start his day without his favorite brew, he heads to the local coffee shop. Max finds something even more appealing than caffeine in the form of 26-year-old hottie Aiden James. For the first time in his life, well-established, confident, and respected Dom Max finds himself sputtering and unsure in the face of Aiden´s charms. Aiden lives with three roommates, works a dead-end job, and isn´t sure where his life is heading. That is until he meets Max. Max introduces him to a foreign yet intriguing lifestyle, and they soon discover they have something more than mutual attraction in common. A shared kink is one thing, but Aiden´s past vanilla sexual experiences as well as his fear of losing himself in Max may keep Aiden from experiencing his fantasy. Max has an obstacle of his own to overcome. He must somehow figure out how to help Aiden explore his submissive side when, for the first time in his life, he´s head over heels in love. 1.

The horse they buy, Noble Warrior, looks the part: strong, fit and healthy. There´s just one problem - he won´t gallop.
