Sample the 1st FIVE chapters NOW!
Set in modern Western culture, In the Reins is the story of a city-girl-gone-country, a handsome cowboy and a Paint Horse brought together by fate. The leading lady's journey of self-discovery begins when she unexpectedly falls for the enigmatic Quarter Horse trainer, and then grapples with who he really is, where he goes when he disappears, and what it is that everyone doesn't want her to know about him.
A book with a left hook, readers ride along as the wannabe cowgirl learns whether or not the man, harboring a deeply guarded secret, can open himself up to the woman sitting in the saddle beside him. Romantic and suspenseful, In the Reins captures the struggle between letting life move forward and shying away from taking the reins.
