A very innocuous two-star book.

The premise was weak and contrived. I'm not sure why an unnamed English prince had to be involved in getting the heroine to go to Argentina. If she was such a great horse mistress (is that the right term?), couldn't the hero just hire her to tend to his horses? And the whole children's charity "scheme" was a total throw-away plot point.

And talk about a lack of chemistry or intimacy between the hero and heroine! Yeah, they were fine, likeable people, but there wasn'
The heroine Bella works as a trainer for the British Polo team as well as running a scheme for disadvantage children at her stables. She works extremely hard and is known as an ice maiden in her social circle but she doesn't mind as she works hard to escape her past. When she meets the hero Nero, she is immediately on the defence, Nero is considered the worlds best polo player and she knows he wants to buy the pony she has bred. Nero has heard good things about Bella's stables as well as her ice ...more

Generally I only write about a book when its really worth it. When I gave them 4 or 5 stars. This books deserves none. Zero. So then, why Im writting now 3 AM in the morning? Because Im pissed! Because Im argentinean, Im from Buenos Aires, Id been in polo matches, I know polo players, I spend some time in "estancias" (nobody calls them that way!!!) and I think Ive enough backround to make a review straigthing some things. These is for the writter if she looks at reviews, and readers who wants an ...more

What Nero wants, Nero gets – doesn’t he? Reigning polo champion Nero Caracas bows to no man…and certainly not to women! With red-hot Latin blood coursing through his veins, what he wants he gets… Bella Wheeler has followed in the footsteps of her horse-trainer father – though determined to eclipse his disreputable legacy, she remains professionally distant from everyone! This aloof beauty has two things Nero wants – the best horse in the world…and a body as pure and untouched as her
I LOVED IT!!!!! lol the characters, the plot, the drama, the HEAT, and the tango..........all absolutely fabulous!!!!! I loved this book! LOVED IT!!! Something else that made it so excellent was all the detail and inforrmation the author put into both characters careers. Horses are and will always be my favorite animal ever!!!!! And I have always considered the tango to be one of the most beautiful, passionate, and sexiest dances of all time. The sex scene, though it took a little while to get t ...more
This is not my typical type of book, I didn't think, but it was a nice change a quick read. A romance.

Wonderful info on polo horses. Makes you want to watch a match, but this is suppose to be a love story.

I swear, I have read this before. I know the scene where Nero rides in to save her during the match I have read the same thing in another book. I never could understand either one's reluctance. Why did Nero keep backing off, and the explaination for Bella just didn't make sense.

Overall the story is ok, but it really left me flat.
In a word, sucked. I have read literally thousands of these books (3-5 books per month, 12 months/yr, 25 yrs) and this one goes to the bottom. The heroine is stiff, unhappy... I couldn't see any decent guy putting up with her whiny complaints & martyrdom let alone a suppossedly wealthy, good looking, personable guy.

I couldn't finish the book it was so bad. I deleted it from my Kindle.
i enjoyed this book by s stephens much more than her last few works. it had more of a plot and understandable characters
Magistral inicio de la serie Juego Argentino donde la cultura y la indiosncracia del país gaucho está en todo su esplendor...

Susan Stephens was a professional singer before meeting her husband on the tiny Mediterranean island of Malta.

In true romance style they met on Monday, became engaged on Friday and were married three months later. They are still very much in love, though Susan does not advise her three children to return home with a similar story as she may not take the news with the same fortitude as her own moth
