    Exclamation TWO NEW Racy Horsey Adult Fiction Books!

    As someone kindly reminded in an OT thread, Jilly Cooper's new Jump! comes out next Thursday. You have to get it through Amazon UK. National Hunt Racing, including plenty of Rupert Campbell-Black.

    And just into 2011, the sequel to French Relations and Well Groomed, Fiona Walker's Kiss and Tell, which is eventing:

    With tight breeches and loose morals, the horse trials circuit is a hell-for-leather chase across the magnificent parkland of England's finest country estates. Flirtation is compulsory sport; love is a professional hazard. Silver-tongued charmer Rory Midwinter is quite at home in this hedge-jumping, bed-hopping world of competitive weekend house parties. Having been born into the saddle, and with a rock star owner as patron, he has no intention of settling down. Only his long-term groom Faith has other ideas. Tash and Hugo Beauchamp are the undisputed golden couple of British three-day eventing, but their mettle is put to the test by the arrival of The Devil on Horseback, brooding Kiwi rider, Lough Strachan. Lough holds the key to Hugo's darkest secret, and he intends to use it to access his greatest rival's beautiful wife.

    I have been counting the days for the next Jilly Cooper- set in jump racing of all things, my guilty pleasure- and texting all my friends about it!

    Fiona Walker I also enjoy, although I find she stretches the old believeability boundaries at times, but it's pure escapism! I'll pick that up too.

    It looks like Canadian COTHers will be able to order Jump! at the end of October through chapters.ca.

    I <3 Fiona Walker and the ones since Well Groomed/French Relations have also been pretty horsey, especially the last two (Four Play and...another one whose name is currently escaping me).

    Was a sequel ever written to the trashtastic In & Out?
