'Fun, sexy and unputdownable - a classic' Marian Keyes
‘Flawlessly entertaining’ Helen Fielding
‘Joyful and mischievous’ Jojo Moyes
Set against the glorious Cotswold countryside, Riders offers an intoxicating blend of swooning romance, adventure and hilarious high jinks.
Brooding hero Jake Lovell, under whose magic hands even the most difficult horse or woman is charmed, is driven by his loathing of the dashing darling of the show ring, Rupert Campbell-Black. Having pinched each other’s horses and drunk their way around the capitals of Europe, the feud between the two men finally erupts with devastating consequences at the Los Angeles Olympics . . .
A classic bestseller, Riders takes the lid off international show jumping, a sport where the brave horses are almost human, but the humans behave like animals.

***** ‘wildly entertaining’
***** ‘pure racy escapism’
***** ‘Rupert really is as fabulous as people say!’
The average American may not view show-jumping as a particularly glamorous sport, but this glimpse into the world of the international equestrian is likely to change any such perception. The story focuses on a group of British riders for whom competition is not limited to winning a team victory. Personal jealousies, financial reward and sexual conquests are likewise factors that drive these intense, charismatic and sexy athletes. The individual emphasis is so strong that even the horses seem to have "personalities.'' This sophisticated novel is written not only for sports fans but for lovers of good fiction.
