It's summer, Royal Ascot, and life is good for young trainer Simon Waterford. He has inherited his father's top-class yard, his brilliant two-year-old has just won the Coventry Stakes and he is soon to marry his beautiful half-Brazilian girlfriend. But Mariana has a secret which would wreck her hopes of marriage -- and which Geoff has found out. And he has threatened to tell Simon.

It's a tragedy, of course, but Mariana can't help but feel relieved. Her secret is safe, for now...
