Help a Reader out: Kentucky horse country/Derby romances

One of the delights I've discovered in my new home state is bourbon whiskey. I like it neat and in cocktails. There are seven distilleries within driving distance of my house and guests often get dragged to tours and tastings.

In honor of my new treat, I'm hunting down romance novels set in Horse Country and/or that involve the Kentucky Derby (I know Nora Roberts did a series...) I'd like a HUGE list so... comment and recommend some reads!

Operation Auction 2011

A few weeks ago, a member of the romance community lost her husband and the father of her four daughters in an act of senseless violence. Things like this make all of us feel so helpless. Many writers are trying to alleviate some of her practical concerns with Operation Auction on eBay.

I've donated a copy of Stone Kissed, plus I'll work the winning bidder's name in as a character in a STONE KISSED sequel. Please consider bidding...and click on the Operation Auction link on the right side of the page to see more than 400 other great opportunities, books, gift packages, etc.

My honestest interview at Open Book Society

Although some of my answers disturb my closest friend, I bar no holds in this interview with staff member Heidi of Open Book Society, who asked me some great questions I haven't been asked before.

Thanks to blogs, the interview can continue! Comment on her post and I'll answer further questions there.
