Soulmates across time. Two hearts that were meant to be together.

In present day, Zach takes a road trip to Trinidad to find information on a missing friend.

In 1892, Layton Blue, outlaw, longs for hearth and home even as he treasures his life of freedom.

A freak rainstorm washes Zach’s car into a ditch, sending him back to the year 1892. Searching for help, alone and on foot in the middle of the nowhere, he crosses paths with the famous Ketchum Gang. Now the gang’s prisoner, Zach’s fate is to be sold at a seedy auction for whores.

Layton is put in charge of making sure Zach does not escape, but as the chemistry between them grows, Layton finds himself wanting to help Zach.

A male/male time travel romance complete with fast rides across the desert, campfires beneath the stars, cool water in the desert, wild rescues, and true love across time.

This is a wonderful book full of great characterization and wonderfully detailed scenery. Zach is incredibly strong, although he is on the smallish size. On the first night, Zach learns how Tom controls his gang: through fear and violence. It was fun to see Zach stand up and he does not stand bullies. He lets Tom know what he thinks of him and as a punishment Tom held him underwater until he was half-drowned. That is why Layton is so drawn to him and wishes he could do what Zach does. From the beginning you can see the connection between the two of them. Zach sees the kindness and he can see the sadness in his eyes.

Layton is such a sweet character, he tries his best to protect Zach. I enjoy him learning from Zach that love can happen and dreams can come true. His only comfort was his horse Tam. Their interaction is so sweet, it shows how much love Layton has to offer. He makes sure that she is cared for before himself. He also taught her tricks and she will do anything for him.

Zach gets to see this side of Layton when they are forced to stay the Bell farm because Zach had gotten sick. The interaction of the three can’t help but warm you heart. My favorite scene is when they ride out to get purple thistle flowers just because Tam loves them. Layton learns from Zach how to love, how to pleasure another man, how to be brave.

Their relationship is a slow burn, each day they get to know each other and love a little more. Then there is the taboo of being gay back in that time. Layton is afraid for Tom or anyone else at the farm to find out how much he loves Zach.

One of my favorite scenes is when they are on the road to the inn where Zach will be sold, and Zach lets Tom know what he really thinks about him, telling him that he is a bully and that he is heartless. You can tell that nobody has done this to Tom before. He knocks Zach around and then Tom pulls out his belt to whip him. Yet Layton takes the punishment instead. This is the first times he goes against Tom’s wishes.

I can’t tell you about how beautiful the scenery is. It makes you want to go back in time just to see the wild west. The stars so clear that you can see them easily, and fresh water in beautiful rivers. Layton is the one to show how hard but beautiful the wild west can be.

There is one thing that I could change. I believe it could have been a little shorter. The scenes at the farm are wonderful but it does slow the story and lost my attention at times.

A lovely western novel with a sweet love story. The characters are well developed and the wonder of the west lays before you. A fun book and a great read.
