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!

LOST RIDER by Harper Sloan, where to start, first this was my first read by this author and second this book was so good that I cannot wait for the second book in the series to come out when the first one has not even been published yet.

I really enjoy a book about a nice, hot, sexy cowboy and this book delivered that in spades along with a story that will draw so many emotions and feelings and pull on the heart strings.

A tragedy and one too many falls off the saddle has Maverick headed home to all the things he ran away from ten years ago, but some of the things that he didn’t want to leave are still there, like the memories of his father and Leighton the only girl he has ever loved.  But when Maverick left town he made sure that Leighton hated him and would never forgive him, the only thing is Leighton has only ever loved one man and that’s Maverick (even though his words the night before he left hurt so deep).  The story of Leighton and Maverick finding their way back to each other was what made the story of this book so good. – Reviewed by Kendra

A new beginning...
A fresh start. That's exactly what Ally Shaw needs and what she's found in Glacier Ridge, Montana. Creating a simpler life with her young son and reconnecting with her only remaining family-it's all part of Ally's plan to chase away the pain of her past. But when a dangerously irresistible cowboy rescues her little boy, Ally can't deny she's excited about what else the future might bring.
Reed Malloy was a wild horse who wouldn't be broken. Devoted to his work on the land at the expense of everything else, he'd never met a woman who could hold his interest... until Ally. And now, beautiful Ally and her fearless, freckled child have this cowboy wanting more. This isn't Ally's first time at the rodeo, though, and convincing her to trust him isn't easy. But there isn't anything he won't do to keep her safe... and make her his.

Reed Malloy’s story is book 3 in the Malloys of Montana series. These stories take place in a small town call Glacier Ridge. It’s such a quaint little town where everyone knows everyone and where everyone knows everything…or do they? The way the author has the setting of Glacial Ridge, it’s a town I’d love to call home if it existed!!

Reed is in town one day when a small child with a cape on darts out in the street and Reed snatches him up before he gets hit be a vehicle! He’s ready to chew out the irresponsible person that left him on his own and then he sees her……..Ally. All thoughts vanish from his mind and he’s focused on how beautiful she is and then he quickly remembers what just happened.

Ally has left the city in Virginia to make a fresh start in Montana. Since she only has her uncle she can call family, it’s important to her that Kyle, her son, know his family. However, family member Archer isn’t so glad to have her. He’s very mean to her and Kyle and eventually the reader finds out why he’s so mean. She’s opened a story called Ally’s Attic and while getting ready for opening day Kyle disappears. She runs outside and there he is in the arms of a hot cowboy, who looked very upset with her! Uh oh!

A sweet, emotional and suspenseful story! This could be read as a stand alone, but once you read about Reed’s other hot brothers, you’ll want to read each story! Reed was such a great man, very focused and also very true to his family. Ally was very strong and also very focused in her goal to make it work in this town. They both were so perfect for each other, but each thought they weren’t any good for the other one. Can they meet in the middle and just let love…..just be love? – Reviewed by Judy


If you haven’t had a chance to start this series you should, its full of love, danger and a sense of belonging. This story focused on Reed the youngest of the brothers who lost their parents in a snowy night crash. Reed is working on developing cattle free from drugs hormones and such and it’s his life until he goes to town one day and stops a cute red haired boy from getting hit by a car. When he sees his mother he is tempted to scold her but the sight of her frantically looking for her son stops him.
Ally just opened a new shop in town and when four year old Kyle didn’t answer she ran out looking for him. When she sees him being held by a man she is frightened till she sees how he son reacts with awe. Reed and Ally are instantly attracted to each other but Ally doesn’t trust her judgement and Reed has always been focused on cattle. When Ally has a little problem with her uncle Reed steps in to help her get her apartment over the store ready quicker. The trouble with her uncle will not be her only problem and she may not survive it. The Malloy’s welcome her and her son as only they can and they are so close you can’t help but feel good when your done reading it. I just love what a strong woman Ally is and how she wanted a better life for her son. – Reviewed by Linda

This time, she's calling the shots.
Peggy Clarkson is returning to her alma mater with one goal in mind: confront Elliott Brooks, the man who ruined her for all others, and remind him of what he's been missing. Even after three years, seeing him again is like a punch in the gut, but Peggy's determined to stick to her plan. Maybe then, once she has the upper hand, she'll finally be able to move on.
In the years since Peggy left Cincinnati, Elliott has kept his focus on football. No distractions and no complications. But when Peggy walks back onto his practice field and into his life, he knows she could unravel everything in his carefully controlled world. Because the girl who was hard to forget is now a woman impossible to resist.

Peggy has always wanted Elliot the head coach and so what if he was older than her. He noticed her when she was cheerleading and she noticed him right back the only problem was he was older a widower with a daughter. Well he couldn’t help himself and they carried on for a few years and when college was over he sent her on her way telling her there was no future for them.

When Peggy decides to come back and make him realize what he missed out on, he can’t believe she is back because he hasn’t been while since her. Peggy is just stopping in town to get her revenge and go to New York to help her brother.

You can’t help but love how quirky Peggy is even though she is gorgeous do you don’t expect her to have a brain. Elliot is so stiff and regimented with coaching he fails to see his daughter needs him but Peggy will get him to see that just before she leaves. – Reviewed by Judy
