Blurb:

Two men exiled to an untamed land must capture love.

Ever since Cambridge-bound Colin Lancaster spied on stable master Patrick Callahan mastering another man, he’s longed for Patrick to do the same to him. When Patrick is caught with his pants down and threatened with death for his crime, Colin speaks up in his defense and confesses his own sinful nature. They’re soon banished to the faraway prison colony of Australia.

Patrick never asked for Colin’s help, and now he’s stuck with the pampered fool. While it’s true that being transported to Australia is a far cry from the luxury Colin is accustomed to, he’s determined to make the best of it and prove himself. Although Patrick learned long ago that love is a fairy tale, he’s inexorably drawn to sweet, optimistic Colin.

From the miserable depths of a prison ship to the vast, untamed Australian outback, Colin and Patrick must rely on each other. Danger lurks everywhere, and when they unexpectedly get the chance to escape to a new life as cowboys, they’ll need each other more than ever.

This historical gay romance from Keira Andrews features an age difference, an eager virgin, hurt/comfort, and of course a happy ending.


I’ve said it before, and I’ll repeat it, Keira Andrews can write anything. Her ability to jump from Contemporary to Paranormal, to Suspense, to Historical is impressive. The Station, a Historical Romance set in Australia is no exception. This book gripped from the first page and never let me go.

Some highlights:

-Colin. I loved his outlook on life and his heart. He’s someone I’d want to be friends with in real life.

-Patrick, stubborn hard headed, Patrick. He will frustrate you, but I can’t say I blame him for wanting to protect himself and in the end, he made up for…. well, you’ll find out.

-I enjoyed reading about the class differences and felt KA did an excellent job depicting how life was in the 1800s.

-Emily and Robbie. As far as supporting cast they are some of the best I’ve read. Truth be told my heart just as much Patrick and Colin.

-The romance. GAH! I was swooning so hard. Their stolen moments and growing feelings gave me butterflies.

-The end. It didn’t sugar coat and leave things as if life would be rainbows and butterflies, but it did leave me happy and knowing that our heroes and their friends were in it for the long haul and would accomplish whatever they set their minds to.

I can’t recommend The Station by Keira Andrews enough; even if historical isn’t typically your cuppa give this a try, I promise you won’t regret it. 5+ Stars!
