Caine Neiheisel is stuck in a dead-end job at the end of a dead-end relationship when the chance of a lifetime falls in his lap. His mother inherits her uncle’s sheep station in New South Wales, Australia, and Caine sees it as the opportunity to start over, out on the range where his stutter won’t hold him back and his willingness to work will surely make up for his lack of knowledge.
Unfortunately, Macklin Armstrong, the foreman of Lang Downs who should be Caine’s biggest ally, alternates between being cool and downright dismissive, and the other hands are more amused by Caine’s American accent than they are moved by his plight… until they find out he’s gay and their amusement turns to scorn. It will take all of Caine’s determination—and an act of cruel sabotage by a hostile neighbor—to bring the men of Lang Downs together and give Caine and Macklin a chance at love.
My reviewI really liked this story, it was a simple tale of a man starting over in a new country doing something completely new and wanting to live an open and honest life.
That's it really simple and to add a bit of spice he falls for the foreman who is not out at all. This story allows us to watch as these to men figure out what they want from each other and if they can give it. There is the added tension of the ranch hands feel due to the new ownership and the fact Cain knows nothing of sheep farming. I love Cain's spirit and drive to make the move work, all he wants to do is honour the memory of his great uncle and make sure the farm has a real future. I enjoyed the gentle nature of this book and I will defiantly be looking for more by this author.
Thank you for reading my review
