Spotlight: Lost Rider by Harper Sloan

LOST RIDER
By Harper Sloan
Release Day: APRIL 25, 2017

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 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.

Character Crush with Tessa Bailey

Book Angel Booktopia is delighted to welcome Tessa Bailey today to share her top five character crushes!!!!

Only five?! LOL. This is going to be tough, but I’m up to the job!

Joshua from The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. Oh yes. Still waters run deep with this man. It has been a while since I reread a book, but I read this one twice. He is holding so much inside, but he’s clearly protective and IN LOVE with the heroine. It’s just the most beautiful slow burn I’ve ever read.

  • Reiner from Kulti by Mariana Zapata. This author has this amazing ability to write heroines are totally oblivious to the hero’s devotion and it turns out, that is my catnip. This German ex-soccer star coach will always have a spot in my soul.

  • Maksimilian Sevastyan from The Master by Kresley Cole. This is the second book in her Gamemaker’s Series. He’s a politician/Mafiya boss and basically decides to keep the heroine. It’s probably the hottest book I’ve ever read in my life. I had a temperature the entire time.

  • Jules Cassidy from the Troubleshooters series by Suzanne Brockmann. He’s a badass FBI agent and also the first gay character I’d ever read. I fell in love with him and it was amazing watching his rocky road to love with Robin. They’re still one of my all-time favorite couples.

  • Tate Sullivan from Never Sweeter by Charlotte Stein. This is a romance between a college student and the boy who bullied her in high school. That’s a hard road to redemption, let alone making me fall in love with him. Such a beautiful, angsty book.
  • Who else wants to add all of these books to their wish-list **raises hand**

    Synopsis from Goodreads

    Courtney Bishop is as sugary sweet as her famous blueberry muffins.
    Southern belle at heart, Cali girl by choice.
    She barged into my life and easily became my best friend.
    All was great as roommates and just friends, but then I fell for the girl who could chop firewood, deliver baby calves, and bail hay without breaking a sweat.
    She’s the perfect mixture of sugar and spice, and I love her.
