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!
I love Harper Sloan’s male characters. She knows what she is doing when she is creating the amazing alpha males in her stories. Then she goes and creates a COWBOY! #Swoon
Maverick Davis is broody and has a temper, but he is one of the good guys. And he is my favorite kind of male character: a broken hero! #SwoonAgain
Leighton and Maverick have a complicated past. When they were young he was a jerk, she was too shy. But now, 10 years later, they have a second chance.
These two have become one of my favorite couples ever. They are perfect for each other, both so damn broken that only together they will be able to get past all the pain.
The book is full of drama. I love the kind of drama that Harper creates, so I was ready! But beware: you will swoon, sigh, cry and get frustrated with Lost Rider. And you will laugh a lot too. (Leighton should drink more often…)
Quinn and Clay (Maverick’s sister and brother), I’m ready for your stories!
