Publisher Description

Kristiana Liepa was supposed to use the money to save her family farm. She was NOT supposed to spend it all to save a massive, black stallion.

But when she saw how he was being treated, what's a vet to do?

She had no idea that gorgeous beast was really a powerful (and morally gray) magician who had been cursed by a witch, or that she was the only one who could reverse the curse.

And she couldn't possibly have known how that one rash decision would irrevocably change her life. . . and his.

Need a little more information to make up your mind?

You can read a trade review and a longer description below:

Publisher's Weekly said, "My Queendom for a Horse is an intriguing paranormal romance with a fresh and fun setup. [R]eaders will enjoy both the magical and romantic elements."  They also said, "The story of a shapeshifting horse is undoubtedly unique. The author puts a dynamic spin on fairytale tropes, while her knowledge and love of horses is evident throughout. A strong, confident female character takes center stage in this novel with her ability to talk to a cursed horse."

Here's the longer description with more detail:

Kristiana's father has a gambling problem. After a particularly bad hand of cards puts their family's land in jeopardy, her dad's solution is to call her billionaire ex. But Kris can't bring herself to beg him for money. At least, not her first time seeing him in ten years. Instead, she withdraws her life savings and bets on herself.

Thankfully, it pays off! She and her most promising horse win big at the Down Royal steeplechase in Ireland, but only because the best horse on the track wasn't ridden properly. Luckily, it's just enough to grant a stay of execution with the bank. Or it would be. . .

But when Kris realizes her nemesis is abusing the gorgeous black stallion who should have won, she can't help herself. She spends her winnings buying the horse she fell for the moment she saw him. It may not be the smartest move in the short run, but Obsidian Devil's her best hope of finally digging out from under the massive debt hanging over them. She'll have to ask her ex to help with the next payment, but seeing him again won't be so bad.

What Kris doesn't know is that her new purchase is actually a powerful magician, stuck in horse form by a witch's curse. She also has no idea that she'll be the only person who can help him lift the curse. . . And worst of all, that helping him may mean losing the family farm for good.

Crazy not lazy ,


I gave it 4 1/2 stars. It was interesting and held my attention. It dragged in a few places, but was good.

Horses, Shifting, Magic - Sign me UP!

If you are a fan of horses this book is a must, especially because the author is an avid rider herself and this makes this story so much better. Plus shifter books are fun and full of energy and I haven’t read a horse shifter book before.
Kristiana loves her horses and her farm but her father is a whole other story. His gambling addiction has once again put her into a situation she needs to find a way out of. Kristiana decides to enter into the racing world once more and takes the gamble of all or nothing. When she wins and finally has the money to make everything better she encounters the black stallion in the back. As a vet and horse lover she absolutely cannot watch how he is being treated. So against all odds she uses the money to buy this horse. Of course this is only the beginning because as we know this is a horse shifter book so this wonderful stallion is turning into an ancient russian magician who hadn’t been able to transform back. Kristiana doesn’t know what to think of this new situation and still is trying to find a way to save her farm.
Kristiana is a strong lead with a lot of real world problems that she needs to solve while dealing with unforeseen magical obstacles as well. This makes this book not just fantasy but in my opinion also a good upper YA novel as well as a great romance. This is a trifecta of books that makes it hard to put down. Bridget E. Baker has a wonderful way with words and the descriptions she gives are vivid and detailed. Her characters are well thought out and jump off the pages. I look forward to the rest of the series.

This was a fun book to read!!

I loved that it had an actual story and wasn’t just a smut-fest. You get a real feel for the characters and what Kris is going through, even though she dithers about her decisions lol but as the “onlooker” it’s easy to say I’d have done it differently. I’m super excited for the next book!
