The Simbul's Gift, by Lynn Abbey, is the sixth and last book in the loosely-connected The Nobles series.
The perfect gift.

The Simbul, Storm-queen of Aglarond, is unhappy. Though she has triumphed over her enemies, she lacks an heir to the throne—a child to love and nurture. But now she's found the perfect father for her child: Elminster, the old mage of Shadowdale. All she has to do is win his consent.
And she has the perfect gift with which to accomplish this: A mysterious colt called Zandilar's Dancer.
Unfortunately, the colt belongs to Ebroin of the Cha'Tel'Quessir. And getting it away from him won't be easy, even for the Simbul...
