Publisher's Summary

Glenn Holloway's predictable life ended the day he confessed his homosexuality to his family. As if that wasn't enough, he then poured salt in the wound by walking away from the ranch he'd grown up on, to open the restaurant he'd always dreamed of. Without support from his father and brother, and too proud to accept assistance from anyone else, he had to start from scratch. Over time things worked out. Glenn successfully built a strong business, created a new home, and forged a life he could be proud of.
Despite his success, his estrangement from the Holloways is still a sore spot he can't quite heal, and a called-in favor becomes Glenn's worst nightmare. Caught in a promise, Glenn returns to his roots to deal with Rand Holloway and comes face-to-face with Mac Gentry, a man far too appealing for Glenn's own good. It could all lead to disaster - disaster for his tenuous reconnection with his family and for the desire he didn't know he held in his heart.

Great character voices!

Any additional comments?

*sighs* I loved it.

Told entirely from Glenn's POV, I absolutely love how Mary Calmes writes an alpha, possessive male, without it being overly creepy or hitting my "call the police!" panic vibe. Instead she makes it hot and oh-so-necessary.

I especially love how Sean Crisden is able to voice the characters in this audio so well. I just LOVED his character voices for Glenn and Mac! Hearing their passion come to a head and explode was awesome!

Sure, the relationship is fast, with the two coming together and making promises quickly, but it works. It just all works for me.

The audio is just so good...and just what I needed today.

Sean Crisden is sublime, I loved the story...I am one happy Calmesniac.

Cranky cowboy needs to be roped in.

Would you listen to When the Dust Settles again? Why?

You betcha! I just love the way Sean Crisden brings a sexy, broken down cowboy to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Glenn, hands down. There's this venom inside him festering, keeping him away from family and a man that could be everything he needs, and he's too damn stubborn to do something about it. For now...

Which character – as performed by Sean Crisden – was your favorite?

See above, nuff said.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Cranky cowboy needs to be roped in.

Any additional comments?

Crisden is a great narrator, I don't think I've listened to a book he's read that I didn't enjoy, but he really hits his stride when it comes to Cowboys.

Glenn Holloway has stayed away from his kin for far too long, and though he had good reason years ago, now it's time for him to come back home. And Mac Gentry is going to make sure he not only brings his stubborn self back to the Ranch, he is going to make sure Glenn is sleeping in his bed every night.

If you are a fan of this Author or Narrator then grabbing a copy of this book should be a no brainer. Add to that sexy, stubborn cowboys, a kidnapping scare and some good ole' boy lovin' make this one a must listen.

Loved it. Sean Crisden's best work and I already loved him! Awesome. His characterisation of Glen was perfection.
