From the back cover:
Cowboy McKennon Kelly was the last thing Devon Brooke wanted to focus on after finding herself suddenly single. Looking for a fresh start to life, city girl and journalist Devon just wanted to go back to her country roots and focus on building a relationship with her newly acquired equine partner Faith.
Devon finds companionship in handsome bull riding ranch hand JD and delicate Green Briar horse farm owner Sophia, both who advise Devon to keep her distance from McKennon and “mind her p’s and q’s” around the quiet and eerily peaceful stables. Devon thinks it shouldn’t be too difficult to avoid the Adonis cowboy, but after noticing his skills and expert ways with training horses, she figures it couldn’t hurt to get to know him a little bit … right?
Devon follows the guarded cowboy to a horse show, where she is unprepared to learn she may not be the cowgirl she thought she was. After a near-tragic incident, Devon begins to realize that the more time she spends with McKennon, the less she really knows about him (or horses, for that matter), and his mystery just keeps getting bigger. Who is he really, what is it that everyone doesn’t want her to know, and why is this tight-shirted, spur-jingling, weather-eyed cowboy all she can think about now?
Just when everything is starting to come together in life and love, fate throws a curveball at wannabe cowgirl Devon Brooke. She has some tough decisions to make regarding cowboy McKennon Kelly, her future plans and her beloved horse Faith.
Devon is devastated when a simple mistake causes serious consequences for her horse, and she falls hard back to square one losing hope she can ever amount to the equestrian she wants to be. No longer running from his past, McKennon is desperate to bring Devon back to the saddle and honor his show pen promise, but he soon finds that Devon is ready to hang up the reins and her dreams of a buckle for good.
Can McKennon convince Devon that another horse will be able to take Faith’s place in the show pen? Should he? Will the suggestion bring them together or push them apart?Show Pen Promise, the highly anticipated third installment of the award-winning In the Reins series, follows McKennon’s quest to help Devon believe she has the strength to be the cowgirl of her dreams. Can Devon love a horse as much as she loves Faith? Will her relationship with McKennon and his show pen promise ever become reality? Is fate a friend or a foe?
One … Two … Three ...
JD McCall lives his life fast and focused on exactly what’s in front of him: the next woman, the next drink, the next eight seconds on a rank bull.

The one good thing about the wedding is Everly Mitchell, the maid of honor—a tall, gorgeous, feisty redhead who hails all the way from New York City. He figures it’s only polite to show the city gal the ropes of being with a cowboy. After all, isn’t that what a Southern gentleman is supposed to do?
Four … Five …
When the National Bull Rider tour leads JD to the big city, he saddles up with Ev, who ends up dealing him an even faster lifestyle than his own, full of lights, cameras, and plenty of action. Now on Ev’s concrete turf, JD realizes a simple bull rider is no match for a savvy businesswoman.
Six … Seven …
JD is used to being the one who does the heart breaking. He likes to fool around, not be made a fool.
The McCall curse strikes again. How is JD going to get out of this one?
