I read this book because I assumed that it would be about horses...because of the horses on the cover, and because it took place at a horse-racing farm. However, when I started the book I realized that the horses really had very little to do with the story. Although I initially bought the book in hopes that it would be a good read for someone who loves horses, I still enjoyed the book very much. The characters draw you in and it is hard to put down. In the end, if you're looking for a book to give to a horse-lover, this might not be the right one. But, if you're just looking for a good read, this book is that.

this is the second book in the "kentucky" series and you do kinda get the feeling that u need to have read the others to understand who everybody is. i still didnt get it straight even at the end. this story is about nealy clay and hhow she finds herself, triple crown winner, single mother and ranch owner and the love of her life. the horse aspect is just a backdrop for the real story so dont let it put you off.

HASH(0x9bc26e70) out of 5 stars Kentucky Great! 27 Oct. 2002
By Cindi B. Graham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was my first Fern Michaels book, and it will definately not be the last one i read!
Nealy Diamond Clay is a famous jockey that owns and runs Blue Diamond Farms, a top horse racing farm in Kentucky.
Nealy's children, Nick and Emmie, had finaly convinced their mother to let them have a week off for vacation, which Nealy never had allowed. So when they both took an extra week off (without telling Nealy!) and one of the farm's mares had complications foaling, Nealy was angry. To her the horses came first, so she kicked them off the farm. Later in the book you find out that Nealy really kicked them out because deep down she knew knew that they would never create a life of their own if she didnt push them away from the comforts of Blue Diamond Farms.
Through this rough time, Nealy also meets up with her dead husband's best friend, Hatch, Nealy tries to fight it, but through it all she knows she has romantic feelings for Hatch.
Also, Nealy is entered to ride Shufly, her champion horse Flyby's son, in the Kentucky Derby. But Nealy is woman in her early fifties, and many people doubt her. Can she and Shufly win the triple crown races against all odds?
For awhile everything is great for Nealy. She is in love with Hatch, has reunited with her children, has had a good horse racing season, and has traveled the world with her new fiance. But can one dreadful night destroy everything for Nealy, and maybe even cost her life?

HASH(0x9bc26ec4) out of 5 stars You have to read the other series to follow this one 26 April 2006
By kozar23 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ok I loved this series and in between books, I read the others to catch up on characters and it made everyone of them fall into place. Texas & Vegas series help you with the characters in the Kentucky series and I thought all of it was good I couldn't put the books done.

HASH(0x9bd44318) out of 5 stars Racing Without Running 18 Jun. 2002
By Sharon Munro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Trying to race through each new and incredibly exciting chapter of Fern Michaels' Kentucky Heat, the 2nd book in her 3-book series, while experiencing the emotional ups and downs of the Coleman family, et al., was the most fun I've ever had. Reaching the last chapter, knowing I was nearing the end, and would have to wait until October for the 3rd and final "Kentucky" series book, was the least fun I've ever had.
Nealy Coleman Diamond, Kentucky Heat's main character, and one of the many strong women Fern writes about, knocks your socks off every time she turns a corner. Her family and friends become your "best buds" as you read about them and grow to know and love them. Woven within the story of the Colemans are several smaller threads of stories that nab your attention as you turn each page. The smaller threads are no less exciting than the main story. Don't second guess Fern's endings -- she is the inveterate surprise ending queen. Read the book. Love her characters. Cheer them on. Then impatiently wait for her next Kentucky novel.

HASH(0x9bd446e4) out of 5 stars Terribly unrealistic 11 Nov. 2009
By Michelle Stine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I actually purchased all 3 books in this trilogy BEFORE reading the first one. Being an avid horse lover & owner of an ex-racehorse, I was excited to get them. However, the store is completely unrealistic and obviously written by someone who truely knows nothing about horses or racing. Continuously repetitive and boringly "perfect" characters who always win and don't seem to have much for negatives in their lives. The negatives they do face they use their outragous fortunes to buy out of. I never can seem to put a book down though, always hoping it will get better, but this one didn't. I eventually went to just skimming the pages, since it's all repetitive anyhow. I'm working on finishing the final book in the series (which isn't any better) and then I doubt I'll look to this author again.

HASH(0x9bd447c8) out of 5 stars Wonderful Writer 10 April 2004
By CHARLIE'S ANGEL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Fern Michaels is the best romance writer I've ever read. For those of you who like romance in a book but don't want to read about the sex details for 5 pages, this is the author for you. Fern Michaels has a way to make her characters come to life. You really feel like you involved in the story by feeling sympathy, happiness and sadness right along with the characters in her stories. The Kentucky series is a must have for any reader who loves a good romance story with a whole lot more.
