For Brielle Armstrong the pomp and circumstance of the days leading up to the Kentucky Derby are truly the most thrilling time of the year. Press junkets, designer gowns, everyone schmoozing her in hopes of getting in her daddy’s good graces. What’s not to love?

But this year, her heart is racing with anticipation to see Colby Hensley. As a former trainer of her family’s champion horses, his rugged sex appeal has always filled Brielle’s mind with naughty thoughts of a little barebacked fun.

Even though Colby walked away from their farm, her father, Butch, would never approve of him. But what daddy doesn’t know can’t hurt him. If their secret comes out, it could cost Brielle everything. Still, what fun is life if you don’t ride it at a gallop?

Grab your riding crop, and place your bets. It’s Derby Day!


Book 5 in the The Dating Series takes us to horse racing in the blue hills of Kentucky where two lovers need to make the choice of saving their love or going their separate ways.

Colby Hensley is a horse trainer who has discovered his winning horse, Maximus. Unfortunately, in choosing the horse, he lost his family and the woman he loved. 

Brielle Armstrong has it all. Wealth, a father that loves her, and a family business raising champion horses. However, it is not enough. She lost the man she has loved since they were very young and when she finds out the truth about his leaving, she will do anything to get him back. 

A Date With the Derby is the rich girl/poor boy trope where the man wants to prove to the woman’s father that he can make it on his own. However, Brielle is not your typical blue blood, she works on her own terms and prefers jeans to ball gowns. She also knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to lose everything for Colby. And Colby doesn’t care about the parties and social gatherings, he cares about training horses. So if Brielle wants him, he won’t push her away because of his pride. They will make a life together any way they can.

Overall, this is a fun summer read about choosing what makes you happy and living your own life on your own terms.

Thank you to Ms. McLaughlin and Ms. Dover for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
