Carly Kade Pens IN THE REINS

By: May. 03, 2016

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ Equestrian author Carly Kade has lived in the North, the East, the South and now the West. Having made two cross-country road trips with her beloved horse in tow, Carly knew when she arrived in Arizona that Scottsdale, "The West's Most Western Town," was the perfect place to release her debut novel. Since its Arizona launch at the end of 2015, In The Reins, a cowboy romance novel inspired by the equestrian lifestyle, has steadily climbed the charts to rave reviews. The book has been an equestrian best seller on Amazon for more than 10 weeks.

"I started thinking about the book concept in New York, actually began writing it in Michigan, finished the manuscript in Texas, and then made the final edits and published the novel here in Arizona," said Carly Kade, author of In The Reins. "It just felt right to debut my book in Scottsdale where the West and horses are so deeply embedded in the culture. Arizona is a horse lover's paradise, and I finally feel like I am home."

Set in modern Western culture, In The Reins is the story of a city-girl-gone-country, a handsome cowboy and a horse brought together by fate. The leading lady's journey of self-discovery begins when she unexpectedly falls for the enigmatic 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.

Scottsdale-based Heather and Horses Book Reviews recently gave the novel a starred review and called In The Reins "a book that will feel like coming home, complete with a sexy cowboy, a strong female lead, and beautiful horses."

Not your typical cowboy romance, In The Reinsis based in modern cowgirl culture for readers who enjoy equestrian stories with a message similar to The Horse Whispererby Nicholas Evans,The Longest Rideby Nicolas Sparks,or Flying Changesby Sara Gruen. The novelis available now in paperback and eBook on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Apple's iBook store. Filmed in Arizona, the book trailer is viewable at
