Western books

With so many fences between them and happily ever after, two men wonder if it’s worth opening the gate.

Ten years ago Eddie Crane, an actor on the rise, loved his costar and dreamed of the day they could be together. But his love, with his submissive nature, couldn’t handle fame, and before Eddie could help him, he died in a car accident—with Eddie at the wheel.

Now, guilt-ridden, Eddie buries himself in bad decisions and prays that a stunt—on or off camera—will go wrong.

Teenaged fantasies about the actor on his wall distracted Arthur Pike from real life—his dead father, runaway mother, gruff grandparents, and his unrequited love for his cousin’s straight husband. Now grown and off the farm, Pike is a horse stuntman hired to teach a reluctant Eddie to ride.

Pike is drawn to Eddie’s dominant nature despite the sadness clinging to the actor. Eddie let one lover down, but in Pike’s submissiveness, he sees the possibility for redemption.

Saving Faithless Creek

2015 Award Winners

Blair Montague is sent to Newton, Montana, to purchase a ranch and some land for his father. It’s a trip he doesn't want to make. But his father paid for his college education in exchange for Blair working for him in his casinos, so Blair has no choice. When he finds out he’ll be dealing with Royal Masters, the man who bullied him in high school, he is shocked. Then Blair is surprised when he finds that Royal’s time in the Marines has changed him to the point where Blair could be attracted to him… if he’s willing to take that chance.

Royal’s life hasn’t been a bed of roses. He saw combat in the military that left him scarred, and not just on the outside. When he inherits his father’s ranch, he discovers his father wasn't a good manager and the ranch is in trouble. The sale of land would put them back on good footing, but he is suspicious of Blair’s father’s motives, and with good reason. The attraction between them is hard for either to ignore, but it could all evaporate once the land deal is sealed.

Lang Downs | Book Five

Sequel to Conquer the Flames
Lang Downs: Book Five

Seth Simms never wanted to be a cowboy, although to listen to his best friend, Jason Thompson, tell it, he isn’t one. He just happens to have lucked out in coming to live on Lang Downs with his brother ten years ago. He found enough stability to finish high school and go off to university, but he never really believed Lang Downs would be the same haven for him that it had become for so many others. He’s too messed up in the head. No one would accept someone with his issues.

All his life, Jason has had one goal: to come home to Lang Downs as resident veterinarian when they need his skills and jackaroo when they don’t. And it means he gets to spend time with Seth during his occasional visits, even though his dream of going from friends to lovers is hopeless since Seth is straight.

When Seth unexpectedly comes home to stay, Jason takes it as the boon it is. But juggling a relationship with another jackaroo and his friendship with Seth isn’t easy, and that’s before Jason realizes how deep Seth’s issues run and how dangerously Seth chooses to cope with them.

Dein Stern am Himmel

Lang Downs (Deutsch) | Buch 1

Buch 1 in der Serie - Lang Downs

Caine Neiheisel steckt nicht nur in seinem Job in einer Sackgasse fest, sondern auch in seiner Beziehung, als die Chance seines Lebens in seinen Schoß fällt: Seine Mutter hat die Schafstation ihres Onkels in New South Wales, Australien, geerbt, und Caine sieht es als die Chance auf einen Neuanfang, draußen auf einer Ranch, wo sein Stottern ihn nicht zurückhalten und sein Wille zu arbeiten seine Unerfahrenheit wettmachen würde.

Unglücklicherweise wechselt Macklin Armstrong, der Vorarbeiter von Lang Downs, der eigentlich Caines größter Verbündeter sein sollte, zwischen kühlem und völlig abweisendem Verhalten, und die anderen Arbeiter sind eher über Caines Stottern amüsiert, als durch seine Entschlossenheit beeindruckt … Zumindest, bis sie herausfinden, dass er schwul ist und ihre Belustigung sich in Zorn verwandelt. Es wird Caines ganze Entschlossenheit – und einen Sabotageakt eines feindlich gesinnten Nachbarn – brauchen, um die Männer von Lang Downs zu vereinen und Caine und Macklin eine Chance auf Liebe zu geben.

Per una giusta causa

Una buona causa

Una storia della serie Una buona causa

Jerry Lincoln ha un problema: il suo lavoro di consulente informatico a Sioux Falls è troppo per una persona sola. Fortunatamente, questo significa che può permettersi di assumere dei dipendenti. Jerry spera solo che il suo nuovo assunto, John Black Raven, sia più un aiuto che una distrazione, però è questo l’effetto che gli fanno i suoi occhi scuri e i suoi capelli lunghi.

John è venuto in città per studiare e per cercare quella vita che non potrebbe avere nella riserva indiana, ma la cosa più importante per lui è trovare e mantenere un posto di lavoro. Sei mesi fa, sua sorella è morta e i suoi nipoti sono stati dati in affidamento. Pur avendo la legge dalla sua parte, John non riesce a ottenerne la custodia: non può neppure vederli.

Quando Jerry e John cominciano ad avvicinarsi, John scopre di non essere da solo nella sua lotta. Jerry lo aiuta a ottenere il diritto di far visita ai bambini e gli sta accanto quando lui ne ha bisogno. Ma anche se vincono qualche battaglia, è difficile vincere la guerra: i servizi sociali sono coinvolti in un giro di denaro, politica e favoritismi, e i bambini nativi sono il loro pane quotidiano. Ma John e Jerry hanno tutta l’intenzione di combattere per una giusta causa e di vincere – su tutti i fronti.

Brighton McKenzie inherited one of the last pieces of farmland in suburban Baltimore. It has been in his family since Maryland was a colony, though it has lain fallow for years. Selling it for development would be easy, but Brighton wants to honor his grandfather's wishes and work it again. Unfortunately, an accident left him relying on a cane, so he’ll need help. Tanner Houghton used to work on a ranch in Montana until a vengeful ex got him fired because of his sexuality. He comes to Maryland at the invitation of his cousin and is thrilled to have a chance to get back to the kind of work he loves.

Brighton is instantly drawn to the intensely handsome and huge Tanner—he’s everything Brighton likes in a man, though he holds back because Tanner is an employee, and because he can’t understand why a man as virile as Tanner would be interested in him. But that isn’t the worst of their problems. They have to face the machinations of Brighton's aunt, Tanner’s ex suddenly wanting him back, and the need to find a way to make the farm financially viable before they lose Brighton’s family legacy.
