Jason has worked hard for his land, and for his life. Thank goodness he has Robin to share it all with him. Robin cares for him as much as he cares for his ranch, and he’s sure good things are on the way.

Jason Guilhorn had worked hard every day of his life, scrimping and saving until finally he could own his own farm. A modest affair with a few cows, pigs, goats and horses it brings him deep satisfaction. The crowning glory is his lover, Robin, waiting at home for him. For each man their life is perfect, their skills complementing each other – Robin with the finances and keeping their lives comfortable, and Jason with the animals.

This is a quick short shot of a story, but is a wonderful glimpse into country life. There isn’t any waste of time introducing the characters together or setting up the seduction – these men grew up together, and although they realistically sowed their wild oats elsewhere, are a solid team, comfortably together and already deeply in love. The author shows this in numerous, touching ways, how Robin had a bath already drawn for Jason, how Jason doesn’t take Robin’s support for granted. It’s a beautiful snapshot of a settled, happy life still filled with erotic heat and plenty of lust.
