Told from dual third person perspectives RIVAL SEDUCTION follows Heather and Grant’s acrimonious relationship on the competitive horse jumping circuit. Heather has continuously placed second to Grant’s first place wins over the season, and with it comes the animosity between winners and losers. Grant’s reputation as a manwhore, both in and out of the bedroom, is the stuff of headlines and gossip news, and Heather wants nothing to do with the man who plays a lead in all of her fantasies and dreams. When Grant is injured while working on the family ranch Heather is hired by Grant’s father Tad as Grant’s personal and private nurse. What ensues is Grant’s pursuit of Heather and the potential of a promise for the future for two people whose history and past lives are filled with heartbreak and betrayal. Grant’s success hides a the broken heart of a young boy whose mother walked away without looking back; Heather’s family history is rife with scandal, addiction, and the fall out of a criminal past.
The relationship between Heather and Grant begins as competitors on the horse jumping circuit wherein Grant continues to best Heather in each successive event. Heather’s anger at her inability to succeed finds our heroine lashing out at friends, family, co-workers, and Grant Crowley.Read more ›
Heather keeps coming in second to Grant. She WILL beat him, she just needs to work harder. Grant has an accident and Heather is pulled in to nurse him, but something changes, happens, occurs, that makes Heather see Grant in a totally different light. When things with Grant get serious, can Heather overcome her fears?
This is the first book I've read of Weis' and so the first in this series. But from what I can gather, each book concentrates on different couples, with recurring characters. SO can be read as standalones. I didn't feel I was missing anything, and Heather and Grant's story is complete.
Its a good book, but not, for me, anyway, a great one. Its told ENTIRELY from Heather's POV< and that put it on a point down from the start. I always want to hear from both main characters, you know I do, and I didn't get anything of Grant here. THIS point, and this point alone, is what made me give it 4 stars and not 5.
Don't get me wrong, its well written, with Heather's emotions coming at ya in all the right places. You feel for her, when she realises she has no friends, to talk to, because, that would give them some ammunition for one reason or other. You feel when Grant asks her what he did, and you feel when she gets the news that was given, but not (if you see what I mean!)
I did expect Vanessa to make more a nuisance of herself that she did, though.
I did enjoy it, it was a nice easy read, too long for the tub or lunch break, but still could quite happily be a hangover cure.
Lots of horses, and jumping things, not really my thing, but its told well to make it interesting t none riders like myself.Read more ›
The twist and back stories for both main characters will keep you turning the pages. The secondary characters are intriguing and plot moving necessary. I enjoyed this visit to the Jump World and Alexandrea Weis’ Cover to Covers series. If you have read the other books in the series you will want to get Rival Seduction; I enjoyed it as a stand alone read.
You will want to see if Heather and Grant will get past the long held belief that they share; “…never be weak, Never let them see your true Heart.”
Thanks Alexandrea Weis & Good Writing

Heather is a nurse who also show jumps. She has had a difficult life that has caused her to build a fortress around her heart to keep from being hurt. Any time someone gets to close she pushes them away or she runs. She does not believe she can find love. That soon changes when a VIP comes into the emergency room and she is hired to stay with him and make sure he does not over exert himself to soon.
Grant is a cattle rancher who show jumps. He is the heir to the family ranch. His life has been complicated. He loves his family but they are estranged in many ways. He has never fallen in love because the women he has been with often bore him. This has means that he has a reputation that may cause issues. When he finally falls in love there are many obstecles he has to fight through to get her.
Follow Grant and Heather as they fight to gond love they deserve.
Heather is strong and determined, competitive and independent..or is she? There's another side to her, one she tries to keep hidden but never quite succeed in doing so.
Grant..at the beginning I thought he was too cold and cocky for his own good, but after he ring his story, as well as Heather, I understand better why they are that way.
They both need to protect themselves and at the same time hopeless to stop what's growing between them.
Will Heather fights her demons and see what Grant means to her? Will Grant be able to get through to Heather and many other failed?
A great story!
“My kind?” He closed his eyes. “I know you think me a heartless bastard, Heather, but for the sake of argument, can we try to have a conversation that doesn’t descent into name calling?”
“I make no promises.”
Well, perhaps not entirely unappealing. Thrown together unexpectedly outside of the show ring, Heather begins to see a side of Grant that she thought didn’t exist. Over their mutual love of horses and suddenly-realized attraction to each other, Heather wants to believe a relationship might be possible.
“For the first time, what was on the inside of Grant Crowley was becoming just as appealing as his good looks and tight body.”
This is the second book in the series I’ve read and the stand-alone entry reminded me of how much I enjoyed the first. The love scenes are hot but the story is gentle as Grant and Heather battle their inner demons and family issues in this well-written romance. Heather is independent and isn’t afraid to speak her mind, whether to Grant or his opinionated father. Grant has a lot to be proud of yet there is an inner vulnerability that peaks out once in a while that is almost as appealing as everything else. Together they have to figure out if the attraction they feel is love and worth the effort to let go of old hurts and insecurities.
I love a story that has me laughing and misty in equal measure. Family and love are what it’s all about and this book has both!
