Publisher's Summary

Rance Crawford is an alpaca rancher, fiber mill owner, and self-proclaimed grumpy bastard. When sweet, charming tenderfoot Ben McCutcheon moves onto Crawford's rural road, Rance is very aware that Ben makes it a grand total of two gay men in their tiny town, and even though he is instantly, painfully smitten, any move he makes could be simply chalked up to being hard up. Using his best weapon and favorite skill, Crawford launches an awkward, wordless effort to make sure Ben is kept warm during the cold Colorado winter, every last piece of him - especially his heart.

Querky romance for a great series starter.

Cute start to a series that gets even better.
Although this story seems to stop short at the end, have no worries the series continues with all the characters getting involved.

Absolutely Wonderful!

Any additional comments?

Rance Crawford is an alpaca and sheep rancher, owns a fiber mill, does most of his own spinning along with his best friend (the appropriated named) Ariadne, and has the social skills of an amoeba. I loved this character so much it's not even funny.

When charming and socially adept Ben McCutcheon inherits his great-aunt's property next door, Rance is suddenly floored by this vibrant and beautiful man. So much so that he immediately moves out of his comfort zone to woo Ben. With his knitting.

I'll tell you this book made me want to learn how to knit. Even though it hasn't got a lot of steam at first, the UST is there, and the steams builds until it finally explodes. Deliciously so.

Full of feel good moments and low on angst I absolutely LOVED this story.

More than that though, I ADORED the narration by Philip Alces. I've never listened to him before, but WOW was I impressed. I loved everything from start to finish and wouldn't change a thing.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Bubblegum for the ears

Amy Lane a great author, her work is generally amusing,light and some even have a slight edge to them a bit of sour mixed in with the sweet. Unfortunately this is not one of them although fairly well written, the plot is generic you know gruff man meets sweet young thing and instantly falls for his sunny smile. it's been done to death and I'm sorry to say much better, I would love to give examples but I'm not sure can here. Philip Alces's reading is much like the book itself ok but not great when compared to others.

Lovely knitting surprise story!

I enjoy Amy Lane's work but for some reason was a bit nervous about this series!
I guess the title threw me off a bit but once I had started I just fell in love with the characters!
