Riding is nice. But riding with a partner is much more fun...

Duke McGraw learned the hard way that life can change in the blink of an eye. Waking up from a coma, he wants nothing more than to ride back into his life—but nothing is the same, not even Lila Sinclair. With pride the size of Texas, Duke builds a wall of anger. Bent, not broken, he climbs back into the saddle to see where the rocky trail leads him.

Lila loves Duke—always had, always will—but the wounds of tragedy run deeper than physical. Confused by Duke's emotional barriers, Lila is at the end of her rope but refuses to lose hope. Tough and determined, Lila's out to lasso her cowboy. But will her nurturing heart be broken again? A man like Duke comes with risks. When playing with fire someone is bound to get scorched.

Some flames never die, and Duke and Lila's connection is hotter than hell. Temperatures rise on the ranch and horses aren't the only thing being ridden. When the future is at stake, choices must be made. Beyond the scars and tragedy, will love rise again or will the second chance be the last?

Re: Second Ride Cowboy

Love those Cowboy Series for a minute I thought the model was A. B. McKinley!
(Suzanne Bischoff 12:36pm July 11, 2013)

I love second chance love stories they are my favorite. i
think it is possible to rekindle a love that was lost if two
people really want it
Denise Smith 12:30pm July 28, 2013)

I think second chances are important. Everyone screws up, it's what you do afterwards that defines a person. So, a second chance at love is just a part of life.
Marcia Berbeza 12:55pm July 28, 2013)

Sometimes you need to move on to appreciate what you had!
Darci Paice 1:38am July 28, 2013)

I do think it is possible but most people can't get past their previous
Lisa Garrett 1:43am July 28, 2013)

I love to think that second chances are an option. However, it depends on the couple and how well they treated each other during the breakup.
Betty Hamilton 2:03am July 28, 2013)

I believe in second chances, but I think it depends on the
reason for the break up whether they should try again.
Tina Rucci 3:18am July 28, 2013)

I believe in second chances. If there is love and a commitment to making
things work, anything is possible. Congratulations on the book and thanks
for the giveaway!
Linda Brennan 3:42am July 28, 2013)

I think it depends on what caused the problems but I know of more than one couple who reunited after some problems.
Maureen Emmons 6:32am July 28, 2013)

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't I've seen it go
both ways.
Donna Antonio 7:21am July 28, 2013)

I love 2nd chance romance. If the same problems keep reoccurring, then it is time to call it quits.
Pat Lieberman 8:23am July 28, 2013)

I do believe in second chances people grow from mistakes. The time to
walk away is when you are unable to forgive or the 2nd turns into a 3rd and
4 th that just says there's no love or respect there n is not worth another
Lori Barnes 8:52am July 28, 2013)

I love second chances. My grandparents divorced (my Dad was in his late teens), married others only to divorce them and remarry each other. I asked my grandmother why she married grandpa twice and she said simply "Because I realized I loved him." Guess that says it all.
Annetta Sweetko 8:57am July 28, 2013)

I think sometimes there are second changes. Rarely but occasionally.
Pam Howell 9:18am July 28, 2013)

I absolutely loved "Second Chance Cowboy" and I can't wait
to read "Second Ride Cowboy." I remember Duke from the first
book and he was intriguing then, I'm very interested for his
full story. And about second chances- I think they can work
out but it's not likely without a major stressor that brings
both individuals to their breaking points, because if they
already broke up once over something little then they wont
last through the hard stuff, but it's good to find people
who are willing to fight for each other.
Jessica Meyers 10:21am July 28, 2013)

I think that sometimes there can be second chances if both people have worked through their issues.
Sandy Giden 10:53am July 28, 2013)

I also like westerns/cowboy books and movies. Your book sounds like an emotionally involved one, that I would like the chance to read. How often do people get back with an ex? I would say it depends on what or who caused the break up. I guess it would be close to even if they get back together or not. I do think a couple can rekindle their romance/love if they both really want to. Thank you for this chance to win.
Esther Somorai 11:17am July 28, 2013)

I would love to read this book, it sounds great.
Wilma Frana 11:51am July 28, 2013)

Yes, I sometimes think second chances are possible... but it all depends on the reason...
Colleen Conklin 1:13pm July 28, 2013)

me soon win
Kent Cook 1:20pm July 28, 2013)

It depends upon the people involved, but second chances are possible.
Anna Speed 1:23pm July 28, 2013)

It's possible for people to re-kindle romance, but the circumstances have to be right. I got back together with my Husband (we were never married to each other) after being apart for several years, through a mutual friend. I carried a torch for him all of those years, and he never knew it. We got back together as friends, but not for long!! Within a couple of months, he proposed!! We had lived separate lives, but thought about each other while we were apart. There are instances where a couple detest each other so much, that there is no way that they can ever make it again as a couple. The circumstances behind the breakup were too egregious to repair. As for your book, I would love to read a great Cowboy book to round out my Summer with, and your book is just the ticket!! The story sounds like it would be a real page turner!! Congratulations!!
Peggy Roberson 2:05pm July 28, 2013)

Second chances? Why not? If it's meant to be, it will happen!
Nancy Ludvik 4:29pm July 28, 2013)

yes I do think it is possible to rekindle a romance; sometimes the second time around is best!
Shirley Younger 4:35pm July 28, 2013)

second chances are possible
Cheryl McEwen 5:12pm July 28, 2013)

Ha, I'd believe in 3rd chances if he had the body on the cover
of the book.
Deb Diem 5:16pm July 28, 2013)

Second chances are possible, but not for all people. Some people are meant to be together. I would love to read this book.
Cynthia Cook 7:14pm July 28, 2013)

sometimes make a decision with their head rather than their
heart and end up regretting it - second chances can correct
those errors.
Diane Sallans 7:24pm July 28, 2013)

Thank you to everyone for commenting. Good luck to everyone.
Best wishes.
Rhonda Carver 8:24pm July 28, 2013)

As long as people are willing to work on the things that drove them apart, there's always a chance.
Mary C 8:34pm July 28, 2013)

every cowgirl loves a cowboy read
Diane Chenier 8:46pm July 28, 2013)

maybe but not with me my ex was bad
Jennifer Beck 9:35pm July 28, 2013)

Any things possible. Just don't take it to the 3rd or 4th chance.
Sheila True 10:01pm July 28, 2013)

It would depend upon why they broke up in the first place.
Mary Preston 10:24pm July 28, 2013)

I've watched my brother break up & get back together with his girlfriend.
I've given up asking if they are together since he won't give anyone a
straight answer.
Laura Gullickson 10:49pm July 28, 2013)

nothing like a cowboy!!!!
Barbara Studer 10:57pm July 28, 2013)

Sometimes breaking up and then getting back together just makes the relationship stronger.
Sue Farrell 11:13pm July 28, 2013)

I believe in second chance. I don't believe in giving the person any more chances after the second time. If the person still does the same thing over and over again, it's already an indication that the person (his/her behavior) won't change for the better unless he/she has a learning disability.
Kai Wong 12:43pm July 29, 2013)

Shelley Summers 12:44pm July 29, 2013)

I hope and truly believe that u can fall in love again. I would love to win this book. Thanks for the giveaway!! :)
Sophia Ramirez 9:11am July 29, 2013)

Depends on the reason for the breakup. Some things are just unforgivable.
Susan Falkler 10:24am July 29, 2013)

As long as both people want to work out their differences I believe it's possible to find love again.
Marcy Shuler 6:16pm July 29, 2013)

I am sure getting back can work in some cases, but if you have lost trust in a person that will not return so you are better to call it a day.
Great covers, good luck!
Clare O'Beara 9:12am July 31, 2013)

I'm sure it is possible to rekindle a relationship. But I still believe in love at
first sight! I married my first love. Thanks for the giveaway. I would love to
Kim Cornwell 12:23pm July 31, 2013)

Normal commercial finance isn't particularly straightforward come by if ever the borrower provides a poor credit profile or if ever the property is not really stabilized. And this is inefficient to acquire commercial financing as soon as the borrower is certainly short in timely manner to shut down a dealing. However, for those who see an absolute estate opportunity that could be certain paying dividends,

Insurance plan is mostly a threat sharing contractual relationship relating to the insurer plus the insured.

While it is perfectly possible to earn $5 on Fiverr every now and then by doing an odd gig like "I will scream your company name like a psychopath for $5", that won't probably earn you much, simply because there is not enough demand for that. best fiverr backlink gig

I can't draw, read tarots, nor have I an understanding of genealogy. My real girlfriend would be furious and confused if I hired myself out as a Facebook girlfriend to a stranger. I'm also scared of fire. fiverr featured gig
