D ark Horse is the latest book from Victorian author Honey Brown. The novel tells of lust and lies between two strangers who come together in an appropriately secluded rural location.

Sarah Barnard has recently left an unhappy marriage, and is spending the Christmas period camping with her horse, Tansy. Sarah’s solitude is interrupted by the arrival of a man who calls himself Heath. Sarah is immediately captivated by his good looks; despite her initial caution, the two embark on an affair. Heath tells Sarah: ‘You come across as strong and sexy.’ He is certainly more desirable than Sarah’s ex-husband, who is described as a ‘cheating bloody liar’. Yet she begins to worry that Heath might in fact pose a threat to her existence. What secrets might this handsome stranger be hiding?
