At twenty-five, Hank owns a small parcel of land in Australia’s rural southwest where he supplements his income from the property with seasonal shearing. Hank is a “shearing gun”—an ace shearer able to shear large numbers of sheep in a single day. His own father kicked him out when his sexuality was revealed, and since no one would ever hire a gay shearer, Hank has remained firmly closeted ever since.
Elliot is the newbie doctor in town—city-born and somewhat shell-shocked from his transplant to the country. When a football injury brings Hank to Elliot’s attention, an inappropriate sexual glance and the stuttered apology afterward kickstarts their friendship. Romance and love soon blossom, but it’s hard for either of them to hope for anything permanent. As if the constant threat of being caught isn’t enough, Elliot’s contract runs out after only a year.
Re-read Sept. 2015 Loved it even more the second time. Such a wonderful book!
There is NO possible way I could have loved this more!! Bravo, bravo!! It gets all the bestest shelves and the romance shelf to boot. The characters are sweet and sexy and passionate and the story line of a farmer and a doctor finding love in a small rural Australian community is perfectly delightful.
Loved it!!! Recommended!
