Hunter Krause sa meglio di chiunque altro che gestire un ranch è un lavoro duro. I lavoratori sono difficili da trovare e, anche con l'aiuto del suo caposquadra e di tutta la famiglia, il ranch è costantemente a corto di braccia. Quindi, quando i cavalli cominciano a scomparire, il cognato di Hunter assume un uomo che lui non avrebbe mai considerato: Grant Jarreau, un uomo che Hunter non può perdonare per aver abbandonato il suo migliore amico dopo un grave incidente.

Grant si ambienta in fretta, diventando amico della sorella di Hunter e rivelandosi insostituibile. Nonostante i dubbi, Hunter non riesce a controllare le reazioni che gli provoca Grant e non sa cosa fare. Quindi, Grant salva il nipote di Hunter dall'annegamento e un bacio di ringraziamento aprirà a Hunter porte di cui non aveva mai sospettato l'esistenza.

Mentre Hunter e Grant cercano di cominciare una relazione, la famiglia attraversa un momento di tumulto, il ranch ha dei problemi, non riescono a capire il perché della scomparsa dei cavalli e, come se non bastasse, Grant sta nascondendo qualcosa. Hunter riuscirà a fidarsi di Grant o il putiferio familiare richiederà un'altra vittima?

For Josh Brooks, it’s a summer of wishes come true. First he gets his dream horse from a rival trainer. Then his brother’s Army Ranger buddy, Dane Keller, comes to work on the ranch and Josh meets his dream lover too. Dane is hot, competent, and fresh out of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Everything would be perfect—except nobody knows Josh and Dane are gay.

All Dane wants is a quiet life in a less claustrophobic closet and a ranch job where he can earn a living. But when his best friend’s little brother, the one who wrote the letters that kept their spirits up in Afghanistan, turns out to have grown up in all the right ways, Dane can’t help wanting more despite his fear of commitment.

While Dane and Josh are busy trying—and failing—to keep their hands to themselves, someone else is watching, biding his time. Then he strikes, first at Josh and then at the prized horse. When all of their secrets and fears are exposed, Dane is determined to protect Josh, even if it means leaving him behind.

When homophobes attack him, he thinks his life is over, but then he’s rescued by jackaroos from a nearby sheep station.

Watching the station owner and his foreman together makes Jesse wonder if there are benefits to settling down, but when he realizes how Chris feels about him, he panics. He and Chris will have to decide if a try for happiness is worth the risk before the end of the season tears them apart.

Stories from the Range: Book Four

Country singer Willie Meadows is a fake. He’s never ridden a horse, and his “Western” gear comes from a boutique shop in LA. No wonder Wilson Edwards, the real man in those fake boots, is suffering creative block. Determined to connect with the music, Wilson buys a ranch in Wyoming to learn the country way of life, even if he has no intention of running the business. Then Steve Peterson shows up desperate, destitute, and hungry, having just escaped a gay deprogramming hospital run by his father’s cult.

Steve was supposed to train horses for the ranch’s former owner, but the job is gone along with his would-be employer. Luckily Wilson has a temporary solution: Steve can ranch-sit while Wilson does business in LA. But when he comes back, Wilson barely recognizes the place. There are trained horses in the paddock, and the ranch is in great shape. Suddenly he finds himself inspired not by the cowboy lifestyle but by Steve himself.

But the cult is still after Steve, and Wilson’s fear of scandal means he’s still in the closet. Coming out could kill Willie’s career—but denying his feelings for Steve could kill the only part of him that’s real.

Morning Report: Book Two

For Tommy Bradley, a hand working on the Lost Cow Ranch in rural Texas, admitting his sexuality is impossible, even if his bosses, Luke and Simon, are gay—Tommy has spent his entire life hiding the truth from his homophobic parents. Then Tommy meets pastor Noah Taylor in Luke’s father’s hospital room, and his difficult secret becomes that much harder to keep.

Noah is unlike any man of God—or any man—Tommy’s ever met. For one thing, his congregation is made up primarily of GLBT individuals and their families. For another, he isn’t afraid of the attraction he feels toward Tommy, and he makes his intentions very clear. But Noah won’t hide his sexuality or his love from the world, and he won’t start a relationship with Tommy while Tommy hides his, either. Faced with the choice of losing Noah or coming out to his parents, Tommy takes his first steps out of the closet.

But Tommy isn’t the only one facing challenges. Thanks to an outpouring of hatred from Pastor Jackson and a group of ranch owners, Noah must cope with the possible loss of his church and his livelihood.
