September 1, 2008
Julia’s job as a reporter for Equine Earth magazine lands her in Dubai to do an
interest piece on her friends Melanie and Robbie Preston, who have recently
suffered a major loss when their star thoroughbred’s sire of record was proven
When a stroll through the racetrack stables brings her face to face with
Millions to Spare, a horse that is almost identical to her friends’ discredited
horse, she is determined to gather DNA evidence from it to help her friends
solve the mystery of their horse’s parentage.
A good plan, right up until she got trapped in the horse trailer and ended up in
a Dubai prison, only released when the owner of the horse, Lord Harrison
Rochester, secures her release into his custody.
Oh, and he’s not buying her story about writing a fluff piece on his horse for a
minute. He knows she’s lying, and won’t release her until he has the truth from
her. But by the time she comes clean about her investigation into Millions to

Never having read a book in Harlequin’s Silhouette Special Edition line before,
I really didn’t know what to expect. However, Barbara Dunlop’s upcoming release
MILLIONS TO SPARE had an interesting sounding plot, and so I
thought I would give it a try.
What I found was a very pleasant read that proves itself more than the
stereotypical generalizations that these stories sometimes suffer from. The
characters were both intriguing and likable, the story was well-plotted and the
story was entirely captivating.
Harrison is a man who feels bound to his title and the duty that comes with it,
never expecting to experience the luxury of marrying a woman he is in love with,
but instead marrying a woman who fits his lifestyle and position. Meeting Julia
turns his world and ideals upside down, and changes him in some very profound
As a ‘commoner’, Julia enjoys the freedom that comes along with it, living her
simple life as she chooses. Her joie de vivre is infectious, for both the
reader and Harrison, and it takes no great leap to see why he is so taken with
this free spirited woman.
MILLIONS TO SPARE also includes a bit of suspense in the plot, as
Harrison and Julia try to find who has targeted her and why. After being
rescued from prison by Harrison, Julia finds herself wanted more than ever as
the authorities and a mysterious villain chase her across the desert.
For a fun read that has romantic appeal and compelling suspense, pick up a copy
of MILLIONS TO SPARE when it releases!
