The Lost Rider by Harper Sloan is the 1st novel in her Coming Home series of f/m contemporary western romance, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Headline’s Eternal imprint.
The series is centred around the various members of the Davis horse farming family, and involves themes of homecomings and renewed chances at love that didn’t work out the first time around.
The story is a first chance reunion romance between a former rodeo star retiring to the family business and noticing that his best friend’s little sister, whose teenaged crush he once stomped all over, has turned from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan who hasn’t forgotten how he broke her heart once, making her wary of his doing so twice.

Stark Naked by Desiree Holt is the 1st novella in her Naked Cowboys series of f/m contemporary western romance, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Macmillan’s Entangled: Select Contemporary imprint.
The series is set in Texas, and is centred around various members of the Stark family who own a ranch. NB: Apparently despite the suggestive series titling, these are merely steamy and fall under the aegis of Entangled’s “regular” contemporary imprint rather than whatever they call the more erotic one. YMMV.
This story features an awkward meet cute between a woman visiting her college friend at the Texas ranch, and the friend’s obligatory hot brother, who strives to convince her not to let that first impression get in the way of their potentially getting together.
Offered worldwide, available at multiple retailers.

Each title is free for only 1 hour. The current title is:
Country Soul by Remmy Duchene, an m/m contemporary western romance novella set in the country western music industry @ the publisher’s webstore
When Jackson Rawlings comes out of the closet, he loses everything: from his record label to the self-confidence he needs to perform on stage. Jackson feels as if the world is out to get him. Broken and afraid, he escapes to Hallesford and the ranch he calls home. All he wants is to live out the rest of his life peacefully and out of the spotlight.
But the fates just love interfering in his life.
Marques Lopez is the owner of Phoenix Records, and not only does he hate what happened to Jackson, he feels Jackson Rawlings has plenty more to contribute to the music industry. He ventures into small-town USA to find the singer and when he does, Jackson is a mere fragment of the man he used to be. To make matters worse, Marques’s body and heart step in to present him with a choice between business and pleasure—unless he could have his cake and eat it too….
Offered until 3 PM Eastern Time on May 31sh, available DRM-free worldwide directly from the publisher’s webstore (requires account signup with billing address but no payment info).
The Texas Rancher’s Return by Allie Pleiter is the 1st novel in her Blue Thorn Ranch series of inspirational f/m contemporary western romance, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Harlequin’s Love Inspired imprint.
This is apparently being made free to promote the upcoming 4th novel in the series, The Bull Rider’s Homecoming, which is being released in May. NB: This is part of Harlequin’s Love Inspired imprint, which is targeted towards the Christian fiction market and must follow certain guidelines, but is not itself a dedicated faith-based line. YMMV on how much religious-seeming content there may actually be.
The series follows various characters associated with a particular family ranch in Texas. This story stars a prodigal cowboy son returned to save the ranch from a developer, and the charming widowed single mother who works for said developer and may yet take his heart as well as his homestead.
Offered worldwide through April 30th, available directly from the publisher.
