    Thanks, I've downloaded some of these and they sound great!

    Okay, so this is NOT a horse book, but the author is a horseperson (me). Though again, the book has NOTHING to do with horses, but it's free for Amazon Prime member. So if you feel like a NON_HORSE book that is (hopefully) a fun, fast read...just sayin'....

    Default Shedrow

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...SIN=B00B0G1SWC

    From rolling pastures in Lexington, KY to darkened alleyways in Newark, NJ, from Manhattan's posh '21' Club to a peculiar and mysterious landfill in Eastern Kentucky, and from Saratoga Springs, NY to the tiny island of St. Lucia, Shedrow portrays a collision of characters from many divergent worlds. High society and the racing elite, medical and veterinary specialists, mob figures, and Kentucky hill folk become entangled in this unique twist on the medical thriller.

    Dr. Anthony Gianni, a prominent Manhattan surgeon, becomes involved in a racing partnership as a diversion from a thriving surgical practice and an ailing marriage. The excitement builds when the partnership acquires Chiefly Endeavor, a two-year-old colt with the breeding, the spirit, and enough early racing success to qualify for the Kentucky Derby.

    When a new partner with an unsavory background appears and a breeder's nightmare becomes real, Dr. Gianni and a dedicated veterinarian must confront organized crime and solve a complex mystery that threatens to destroy both of their careers, and possibly a great deal more.
    A man must love a thing very much if he not only practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even practices it without any hope of doing it well.--G. K. Chesterton

    This Bev Pettersen one is 99¢ right now which is practically free. I read it months ago. It's a fun mystery/romance with lots of horse stuff -

    wow that is a long url

    Here is the blurb. It included horse racing.

    In spite of having to recover from serious injuries from her fall down a cliff with O'nan, Josiah Reynolds is back to sleuthing. This time her friend, Irene Meckler, asks Josiah to investigate the death of her nephew which was ruled accidental. Irene has her doubts.
    Along with her best friend Matt, and Jake Dosh, a physician assistant hired by Josiah's daughter, Josiah again makes the rounds of quirky characters that can only be found in the mysterious world of antebellum homes, bourbon and horse racing of Kentucky's Bluegrass region.

    Leaving London for a life in rural Yorkshire wasn't something Beth had ever thought she would totally embrace. It would mean a change of school, leaving her friends and everything she had ever known for a life hundreds of miles away.

    There was one big bonus though that made the move palatable. The cottage they were moving to also came with Quincey, a thirteen year old chestnut gelding pony.

    Perhaps life wasn't going to be so bad after all!

    The Snake Who Wanted to Be a Horse


    This is a children's book, but it's free, the art is adorable, and so is the story. You want it, you know you do. Read it on your computer if you don't have a color Kindle (which I don't), and it will be the best couple of minutes ever.

    Crazy for Cowboy [Kindle Edition]
    Roxy Boroughs (Author)

    She’s through with cowboys. But this one’s the 'reel' deal.

    Equine veterinarian, Emily Grant, has had her share of cowboys, and they always break her heart. After vowing to give them up forever, Brandon Hollister strides into her life.

    He’s a different kind of cowboy, one that works on the silver screen. But is he just playing the part when it comes to love? Or can this gorgeous hunk get past a case of mistaken identity, and escape from the "Houston" character he's portraying, to become the man to win Emily’s heart.

    A 50,000-word sweeter romantic comedy.

    EXCERPT FROM CRAZY FOR COWBOY:

    Emily followed Houston’s line of vision down to the front of her wet blouse. Her white, cotton shirt was matted to her body, revealing her skimpy bra beneath. Even from her perspective she could see the pink tips of her breasts showing through the material. She imagined he had an even better view. In fact, she could guarantee it. His ragged breath might have been in response to their recent dash, but that fiery look in his eyes came from a more primal place.

    He grasped her shoulders. A part of her prayed that he’d kiss her. The other more logical part ... well … it was kind of hopeful about it, too. She watched as he moved closer and closer, until his mouth brushed against hers.

    Just say no to cowboys. Just say... “Mmmmmmm.”

    His grip around her tightened as he traced a line of soft kisses along her cheek. “Emily, when can I see you again?”

    “Oh, Houston,” she heard her breathless voice say, “I can’t.”

    He pulled away. Slightly. “You’re not seeing someone else, are you?”

    “No. It’s nothing like that.”

    “Good. Then answer my question,” he whispered against her neck as he nibbled his way to her collarbone.

    How could she answer? She couldn’t even think straight. “Houston,” she gasped, “we have a problem.”

    He gave a low chuckle. “More than you know, darlin’, but let’s not get into that right now. We’ll approach this another way. If you weren’t going to see me again, when would be the best time to do it?”

    It took her a while to figure out what he was aiming at. “I’ll be back at the ranch again this Friday, but I don’t think–”

    “Friday is perfect. We can have dinner together.”

    “But Houston, you don’t understand. I made a vow...” The rest of her sentence came out in a moan as his lips descended onto hers once more. This cowboy must have used liquor in his lip balm, because she was definitely getting tipsy. By the time he came up for air again, she was mush. If he hadn’t been holding onto her, she would have floated away.

    “Now, I have only one question left,” he said, curling an arm around her and guiding her out of the pond. “How am I gonna get you back to your truck safely with you looking like that?”

    Emily wrapped her outside arm across her chest. “Are you worried about protecting me from the other cowboys?”

    “No, ma’am.” He smiled. “I’m worried about protecting you from me.”
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    Dark Horse by Kate Sherwood.

    Not free, but a really good read if you enjoy this genre of romance novels.

    Dan Wheeler thought he'd found lasting love and stability with his life and work partner Justin Archer. But when Dan finds himself alone again, still working as a horse trainer for Justin's parents, he has to find a way to accept that his perfect life is gone forever.

    Then he meets billionaire Evan Kaminski, who arrives to buy a horse for his younger sister, and Evan's lover Jeff Stevens, a horse trainer who seems to understand more than just Dan's job. Struggling to deal with all the upheaval in his life, Dan finds himself drawn to both Evan's mercurial passion and Jeff's quiet wisdom. Is Dan strong enough to take a chance on new love, or would it be better—safer—for him to be alone?
