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
