Thoroughbred horse owner Nealy Coleman makes it clear that she will not tolerate any misbehavior when it comes to her beloved horses. She estranges herself from her two adult children after she believes their recent actions belie her basic tenet of life that the horses must come first. Thus, she fires Emmie and Nick, tossing them both off the farm.

Attorney Hatch Littletree visits Nealy's Blue Diamond spread where the next generation of Triple Crown winners is being birthed. Hatch provides Nealy solace at a time in which she feels so alone after the “betrayal” of her children. However, as their attraction grows, will Nealy do what she always does with human love, push it aside if it interferes with her steeds?

Fan of Fern Michaels long running Vegas-Texas-Kentucky tales will relish the latest installment, KENTUCKY HEAT. Nealy remains a complex character struggling with a lack of balance in her life as her only happiness comes from winning horse races until Hatch enters her life. Though entertaining, the story line fails to expand the Michaels mythos by adding anything new. Still readers will enjoy the newest Kentucky tale that shows the author's ability to provide an engaging character study.
