Pat, a repressed púcca, is enjoying his career as a top jockey. He rides for his father, a sorcerer and notable breeder and trainer of top thoroughbreds. He, like his father, seeks glory on the track. The Triple Crown hasn’t been won since 1978, and they have a horse who might be the one to do it. But first, V-Tach must prove himself worthy by winning the Wood Memorial, and someone or something is out to stop them.
Pat hates magic and wants nothing to do with it, seeing it as nothing more than a cheat. But the power of magic can’t be denied forever, neither his own magic nor that of V-Tach. When Pat discovers that V-Tach is a Shapeshifter capable of changing into a human man, he’s outraged. Will the magic bring the end of their racing dreams?

Review: This is book one in this series and they should be read in order. I must admit that it was not my favorite of the paranormal world, but it was still a good read. The paranormal world’s give you such a mixture of people who you will fall in love with or smack them.
V-Tach is a glorious racing horse but he is also a man. It was news to him when he found out. For as long as he remembered he had love his rider Pat. However Pat didn’t know he had two forms until late one night. Pat had always known about magic, even knew his father was magical. What he had not known was that his mother was a púcca. This in turn made Pat a púcca. He comes off as an arrogant jerk in part of this story. When V-Tach tells him of his love for him, he denies it and is quite rude the way he did it. Telling him that he is just a horse, a great horse but a horse all the same. He was not human in Pats eyes. It takes a short period of time, but he realizes that he loves V-Tach, also. Although while in human form they called him Viktor.
It takes a short time but they realize that they both have so much in common and their feelings are coming out in full force. You can tell that once Pat gets over his attitude that they will be a wonderful couple. Their sex life is sweet and tender, full of passion and fire. I love how his father helps him with the realization that when V-Tach is in horse form that there is no magic helping him win the race and that when he is in human form he is truly a human man. That to love someone with all their heart is the only way to love.
I liked the story but it was definitely missing something in the interpretation. It did catch my attention from the moment I opened the book and did keep it all the way to the end. However, I wished that there were more to the story. A tad bit of danger to V-Tach and then all of a sudden he is captured and turning states evidence is just too fast for me. I wished that it came just a bit slower to reach the ending. If you love the paranormal worlds, sexy men, touching stories then this is a book you will like to read.
