Price straddled a rearing black stallion as she launched her new book In The Name Of Love.

It is her eighth novel in a career which has seen her become a best-selling author.

At the launch in London she said she would love to write steamier novels but feels restricted by her fans.

“I’d like to do the sex scenes a bit more raunchier but I can’t because of my fanbase.

“I’m quite happy how I do this but I’d like to do crime (fiction).”

The book centres on a sports presenter, Charlie, who falls for Felipe, a Spanish horse rider tipped for a medal at the 2012 Olympics.

Price, a keen horse rider herself, said: “This book seems a coincidence but I had a really bad horse accident last year involving a vehicle and two horses died in my arms.

“At the beginning of the book there’s a horse accident so that’s really weird that I’d already done the book and it really did happen.”

The reality TV star said she drew inspiration for the Spanish male lead from her Argentinian fiance Leandro Penna.

“Charlie meets a Spanish guy and I’ve met a Spanish guy. But Felipe in the book could speak English but my one couldn’t so it’s not exactly right.”
