Lost Rider by Harper Sloan
Coming Home Series: Book #1 [Goodreads]
Amazon: [Kindle] [Paperback]
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published by: Simon & Schuster- Pocket Books

In Lost Rider, the first Western romance in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan’s Coming Home series, an injured rodeo star encounters an old flame but will she be just what he needs to get back in the saddle?

Maverick Austin Davis is forced to return home after a ten-year career as a rodeo star. After one too many head injuries, he’s off the circuit and in the horse farming business, something he’s never taken much of a shine to, but now that it’s his late father’s legacy, familial duty calls. How will Maverick find his way after the only dream he ever had for himself is over?

Enter Leighton Elizabeth James, an ugly duckling turned beauty from Maverick’s childhood—his younger sister’s best friend, to be exact, and someone whose heart he stomped all over when she confessed her crush to him ten years back. Now Leighton is back in Maverick’s life, no longer the insecure, love-stricken teen—and Maverick can’t help but take notice. Sparks fly between them, but will Leighton be able to open her heart to the one man who broke it all those years ago?

Written in the vein of Diana Palmer and Lindsay McKenna, this Texas-set series is filled with sizzle, heart, and plenty of cowboys!
This was actually my first book by Harper Sloan- I know, I know- "what the flying fadoodle took you so long?!" I am asking myself the SAME THING. Then again, I got to start off with a cowboy book, which, by the way *fans self with cowboy hat* was amazing. I really loved Mave. The cowboy who ran as fast as he could as soon as he got the chance in order to chase his dreams and make something of himself, even if it meant leaving a certain someone behind while doing it. Leighton had been in love with him for so long and she finally got her moment with him..right before he left, leaving nothing but the dust off his boots behind. Leighton had the one thing I look forward to seeing in any heroine- a back bone. She knew how to defend herself and had no problem giving a sassy clapback. I loved that about her and it really made the relationship between her and Mave absolutely electric. I couldn't get enough of them. Needless to say I binged on all the authors books after finishing this one and I will be patiently waiting for the next. Lost Rider was sweet, sexy and had me falling head over boots in love with its characters.

In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?

Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.

The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing….
