When Erin goes looking for riding lessons, she never guesses her new hobby will change her entire life.
It begins when Erin encounters a cowboy in the street early one morning. Mounted and wearing a hat, cloaked in a cloud of dust, he's driving a small herd of horses through her quiet desert neighborhood. The sight of him lodges in her mind, reminding her of an old dream from her childhood. She decides to figure out where he came from.
Erin's hunt leads her to the Tipped Z Ranch, where she signs up for riding lessons with a woman named Nora. Soon, Erin is hooked. She enjoys Nora and adores the horses. But the cowboy she saw that first day is still around. He's Nora's brother, Clint, and he's always at the edge of things—a distracting and watchful presence.
Then Clint asks to stand in as Erin's instructor for a day. Erin goes in nervous, not knowing what to expect. Clint is a master horseman. She can't imagine why he'd be interested in spending time with someone who still has so much to learn.
A Man Who Rides can be read as a stand-alone novel, but it is the first book in the Tipped Z series. These novels combine horsemanship, family, love, and the Tucson desert into thoughtful, heart-warming reads.
