The Trophy Girl

Glamour, romance and three-day eventing – The Trophy Girl is another utterly irresistible read from Kate Lace, for all those who love Jilly Cooper.

When Lucy Carter lands a job in a stately home she feels that all her dreams have come true. Not only is she in fabulous surroundings deep in the country but she is also working for the Earl of Arden. He was once married to the beautiful Becca Hetherington, a gold-medal-winning three-day eventer, and together they were Britain’s golden couple – until Becca was killed in a tragic accident. Now a widower, the Earl is a brooding, romantic figure and there are many women, one in particular, who have their sights set on becoming the next Countess.

As Lucy settles into her new job, she finds herself increasingly drawn to the Earl, and she isn’t alone; all the staff adore him and are fiercely loyal. But as Lucy glimpses behind the money and glamour, she realises that the Earl’s past isn’t the fairytale everyone believed…
