Cover Reveal - Breaking the Reins by Juliana Haygert

I have a cover for you, for a New Adult Romance scheduled to release in August, and it has horses! Horses, people. How could I pass this up? Horses in the book and a horse on the cover. :) Yep, I was one of those horsey girls growing up and while I haven't ridden in years, I'm still fond of horses.

So, besides horses, what else does "Breaking the Reins" have? How's about a blurb? :D

Blurb from the author (I was sooo tempted to say 'from the horses's mouth' :D)  ~
Horses, mansions, tea parties, and lies are twenty-year-old Hannah Taylor’s life. To others, her family and her relationship with Eric is perfect. But she knows the truth. She lives it.

After a fire takes her grandma’s life and kills her horse, Hannah’s immaculate life spirals out of control. Her father disapproves of her decision to run her grandma’s ranch instead of focusing solely on learning the family business; Animal Control brings her Argus, a mistreated horse that she can’t turn away even though she’s not ready for another horse; and her boyfriend, Eric Bennett, a world famous polo player, becomes possessive and authoritarian. Despite her best efforts to disguise it, Hannah grows wary of him.

Then, Leonardo Fernandes struts onto the polo scene. A cocky rookie with a messy life of his own, he’s drawn to Hannah and isn’t afraid of showing it, even when Eric makes it clear she is his and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep it that way. Hannah suffers for Eric’s jealousy. The abuse only gets worse when Leo steals the title of best polo player in the world from Eric.

But the title isn’t enough for Leo. He wants Hannah too, and she can’t deny her attraction to him either. Somehow, she must find a way to break free from abusive Eric before he breaks every bone in her body.

So, horses, abuse, romance (non-abusive), and a ranch - sounds good to me. Want more? How about a teaser?

A little info about the author -

While Juliana Haygert dreams of being Wonder Woman, Buffy, or a blood elf shadow priest, she settles for the less exciting—but equally gratifying—life of a wife, mother, and author. Thousands of miles away from her former home in Brazil, she now resides in Connecticut and spends her days writing about kick-ass heroines and the heroes who drive them crazy.

Find Juliana online:

And now, for the cover. *pats the horse*

Now, I'd buy it just for the horse alone (look at those eyes!). I'm not so sure that the cover reflects that the story is a romance or that it deals with an important topic such as abuse, but it's an attractive cover.
