More About the Author

Kate Lace joined the army straight from her all-girls school because the ratio of men to women was 500:1. She had to leave the army when she married and started a family and in a brief moment of boredom during the 5 years when she produced 3 children and moved house 6 times, she wrote her first book. This was self-published with a fellow army wife and went on to sell a staggering 16,000 copies. Since then she's carried on with the books but given up getting pregnant and moving house. She has now written 2 non-fiction books, 13 published novels - 7 under the name Kate Lace - and has started the 16th book. Until May 2009 she was the chairman of the Romantic Novelists' Association, a national organisation of writers with a membership of around 700, and she captained the RNA team in University Challenge - the Professionals which got to the Grand Final in 2005. She has also written as Catherine Jones and Annie Jones.

Product Description

Book Description

'While Christian Grey doesn't get down to business until chapter 8 in EL James's novel. Rich rower Rollo will have you blushing right from the first paragraph. What a phwoarr-sman!' Now

From the Back Cover

Meet the members of St George's Boat Club:

Dan - dark and brooding, he has to work day and night to achieve his dream of rowing in the London Olympics.

Rollo - rich and arrogant, when he's not rowing he spends his time seducing women and spending money.

Amy - a brilliant cox who catches the eye of both Dan and Rollo.

In a boat Dan and Rollo row perfectly together, but on land they despise each other. So with the addition of Amy to the mix, sporting behaviour is the last thing on their mind.

May the best man win? Not a chance.

From Henley Regatta to the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race, and finally to the biggest race of their lives, their determination to settle old scores threatens to capsize everyone's plans.

Format: Paperback
Cox is very relevant as the characters are preparing for the biggest race of their life, similarly to how the GB rowing team and the other rowing teams would have been preparing for the race of their life at the Olympics. Cox is a perfect accompaniment to the Olympics, which at the moment is hard not to get caught up in the excitement of it all! So if you've been glued to the TV watching the Olympics and cheering on your favourite team to win bronze, silver or gold, then tear your eyes away from the action for a bit to concentrate on this thrilling novel!

The story focuses on three main characters - Dan, Rollo and Amy. Dan and Rollo are desperate to row in the Olympics and are big rivals, and when physiotherapist Amy comes along, there is an instant attraction and rowing is the last thing on their minds.

The characters are brilliantly written, I was really rooting for Dan throughout the book, I desperately wanted him to achieve his dream of rowing in the Olympics and to come out on top, and I enjoyed reading about Amy too. At times I absolutely hated Rollo, but Kate Lace is a very talented author to be able to create characters that can stir up such a range of emotions in you whilst reading a story!

When I first started Cox, I knew nothing of sports, but after reading it I learned so much more about rowing and coxing. Cox is fast paced and exciting with an excellent plot line. The story is sexy, with lots of testosterone and some very well written scenes, if you like a good bonkbuster then this is the book for you.

I have tried a Kate Lace book in the past (Gypsy Wedding) and I couldn't get along with it. When I saw her new book I instantly loved the cover - it really stands out - and I thought it sounded very Jilly Cooper/Jo Carnegie.

This book has a few characters but the main ones are Amy, Dan and Rollo, who are all very into their rowing. The story follows them as they battle to get into the British Olympic Rowing team.

This is a book clearly well researched. Lace has worked hard to make this seem really authentic. I didn't think I was that interested in rowing but I found myself zipping through this book and finding it a cracking read! I loved all the characters - even Rollo who could be a real pain at times. The book reminded me of Lulu Taylor's books as I was reading it.

The book lost a star for one reason and it was nothing to do with the story. The book had far too many mistakes, both in spelling and grammar. There really is no excuse - if you expect me to pay for a book it should be properly proof read.

This is a great Summer read and I really enjoyed it. I will be looking out for more of her work in the future x

This is a fun, pacey summer read that coincides brilliantly with the UK Olympics 2012. It's a bit rude, but in that glorious jolly romp style that Jilly Cooper uses in her books such as Riders. Indeed, there is a strong homage in Cox to the characters of Rupert Campbell Black (Rollo) and Jake Lovell (Dan). It's the perfect holiday/beach read and pick me up. Don't take seriously, just enjoy!

By Sharon TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 29 July 2012
Format: Paperback
Although I haven't read Kate Lace's previous full-length novel, Gypsy Wedding, I had read the books that she'd written for Little Black Dress so I had high expectations for an enjoyable read and overall I wasn't disappointed.

This book centres around three main characters, Amy, a physiotherapist who also trains as a cox, Rollo, the spoilt rich kid, and Dan, the scholarship boy who has worked hard to make it for himself. When she meets Rollo and Dan at Henley there is an immediate attraction with Dan but it's Rollo whose unwanted attention she has to fight off.

She soon bumps into them both again when she moves to Oxford for work and it's soon apparent to Amy that there is no love lost between the two men meaning that she's often caught in the middle of their feud. But for Dan and Rollo they have to put their issues aside to work hard to achieve their goal of making the Olympics rowing team.

There were plenty of interesting characters within this book, not just Amy, Dan and Rollo, although I have to confess I didn't really warm to Rollo's character at all and at times I really wanted to shake Amy and ask her what was she doing but am really pleased with the way things turned out for her in the end.

This book definitely fits in well to the modern-day bonkbuster category with the exploits of the men and women of the rowing club with testosterone and pheromones certainly flying throughout! Cox was an enjoyable book to read in the lead up to the London 2012 Olympics but I sincerely hope that our Olympic hopefuls are a bit more disciplined so as to not affect their medal prospects!

This is the first of Kate Lace's books that I've read and I loved the pace of this novel. Amy, a newly qualified physio starts working evenings voluntarily at the Oxford St George's college boat club and she gets to do occasionally coxing as a result. Soon she is falling for brooding Dan, but also the charm of Rollo.

This is a great story that takes you along with the training hopes of the rowers wanting to make it to the top of their game. There's testosterone aplenty as team mates struggle to get on and where does it all leave Amy? A fantastic read, particularly over this summer of sport.
