Publisher's Summary

Is there room for love in a heart full of secrets? One year ago, before Fate took a wrecking ball to his life, Nichol was happily working on his doctorate in linguistics. Now he's hip deep in sheep, mud, and collies. His late brother and mother had been well-suited to life on Seacliff Farm. Nichol? Not so much.
As lambing season progresses in the teeth of an icy north wind, the last straw is the intruder Nichol catches in the barn. He says his name is Cam, and he’s on the run from a Glasgow gang. Something about the young man's tired resignation touches Nichol deeply, and instead of giving him the business end of a shotgun, he offers Cam a blanket and a place to stay. Somehow, Cam quickly charms his way through Nichol's defenses and into his heart. Even his grandfather takes to the cheeky city boy, whose hard work and good head for figures help set the farm back on its feet. As the cold Scottish springtime melts into summer, Nichol finds himself falling in love. When tragedy strikes, Cam's resolutely held secret is finally revealed and Nichol must face the truth. He's given his heart away, and it’s time to pay the price.

A great bit of optimism

I didn't really think I'd like this so much. The set up and story description sounded like it might have been a big pile of cliché. But the characters (main & others) are just memorable. I listened to the whole thing in one go.

Just a great story of struggle and romance!

This is essentially a story about 3 men and their struggles with life and society they find themselves in and their need for love. I found for some reason this book a little hard to get into at first. Maybe it was the narrator's accent, which once you get into it I realized instead of being a reason not to listen to the book it was one of the reason to listen it. I just loved the author's descriptions of the land, the culture and the struggle the characters are all going through in their lives. Survival is surely a prominent emotion here.

The book is just full of emotion, but it is not the type of emotions that made me cry, but the emotions that make you know that you are alive, though life is a struggle, that struggle has meaning and raw power, a hidden purpose. As a gay romance, this one is surely different. It is powerful and it is a story once you get into it you want to pursue it, because you soon understand the truth that each man is being driven by and I at least had to honor that truth by witnessing it.

It soon became a book I could not stop listening to but at the same time it grieved me knowing that soon it would be over and then once that happened the three men I learned to love and care for would be gone from my life. Surely a book I will listen to again and again and each time gain a little more insight of what the author is trying to express to me, the listener.

To me this story honors the magical love that only men can feel between each other. The power and the joy of it. Passion is everywhere in this story and it carried me along, almost making me addicted to it. I have this same passion deep within me and that passion has surely kept me alive and allowed me to endure pain and lost in my life that I felt I never could survive. This story to me spoke to my own passions, and thus honored my life struggles in doing so.
