do you get when you mix a sophisticated business mogul with a
down-to-earth cowboy? A lot of romance, a little bit of trouble, and
a rollicking good read.
Author Kathy Roberts brings the world of cutting horses to life with her contemporary romance Hot Quit. A power broker who takes up the Western sport of cutting—separating a cow from its herd on horseback—so she can seal a business deal, Alexandria Payne is unprepared to fall in love with anyone, let alone a cowboy. Her riding instructor, the proud and independent Jackson Morgan, ends up teaching her as much about human relationships as about horses. When the two are pitted against one another in a cutting horse competition, however, the relationship falters, and it seems that perhaps the city slicker and the cowboy aren't so compatible after all. Can Alexandria learn to let go of her need to control everything so she can give her heart away? Order Hot Quit from Amazon.com
