Overview

Caine Neiheisel is stuck in a dead-end job at the end of a dead-end relationship when the chance of a lifetime falls in his lap. His mother inherits her uncle's sheep station in New South Wales, Australia, and Caine sees it as the opportunity to start over, out on the range where his stutter won't hold him back and his willingness to work will surely make up for his lack of knowledge.

Unfortunately, Macklin Armstrong, the foreman of Lang Downs who should be Caine's biggest ally, alternates between being cool and downright dismissive, and the other hands are more amused by Caine's American accent than they are moved by his plight... until they find out he's gay and their amusement turns to scorn. It will take all of Caine's determination-and an act of cruel sabotage by a hostile neighbor-to bring the men of Lang Downs together and give Caine and Macklin a chance at love.

I felt like I was right here at the station picturing everything that was going on. Great writer and will be reading the sequel right after I write this. Nice love story.

This is a great book. The characters were great. I enjoyed seeing the difference between America and Australia. I think that the author did a fabulous job. Didn't want this book to end!

Truly Excellent! A Wonderful Surprise! I wasn't sure what I was getting when I started Inherit the Sky, but it has become one of my absolute favorite m/m romances. This was my first time reading Ariel Tachna and it will certainly not be my last. Tachna created a heartwarming and inspiring place at Lang Downs with wonderful and lovable characters. Caine's mother inherits a sheep station in Australia which provides him with the much needed opportunity to escape his life in Philadelphia that has become stagnant. With a business degree and no real knowledge about what he will be doing, Caine up and moves to Australia. Macklin is the hard, weathered foreman of Lang Downs who has seen and done it all. Afraid Caine will sell the station, the only home he has ever really known, out from under them Macklin's abrasiveness gets them off to a rough start. But Caine is here to stay and determined to learn, he just needs to prove that to Macklin. Understandably, Macklin is afraid to come out in the unforgiving and highly masculine world of the outback, but he sees something in Caine that he desperately wants for himself. The two men struggle to figure out their relationship while trying to keep the station afloat. The book can be slow for some, but I found it created a well paced buildup as we learned about the station and its inhabitants alongside Caine, as the story is told from his point of view. The characters were very realistic and wonderfully written. Caine and Macklin are both great characters - attractive, strong, determined, and fascinating. Watching Caine's self confidence build and Macklin let some softness into his life was truly rewarding. Macklin, in particular, was a character I truly loved and could not get enough of. The side characters, especially Kami and Neil, made the story that much more enjoyable. This book was a a wonderful surprise and it has become a book that I go back and re-read often. The whole Lang Downs series is well worth reading and filled with great characters, but Inherit the Sky is my personal favorite and Caine and Macklin my favorite couple.

FiveStars This is the first book in one of my all time favourite series. Here we watch Caine make the journey from his safe but dead-end life in Philadelphia to a sheep station in Australia’s wild outback. As the first book, it is the most typical “romance” of the series. It is also the simplest book in the series. Most of the focus remains on Caine and his foreman Macklin as they figure out their relationship. The dramas are small - Macklin is justifiably wary of coming out in the outback and Caine has to adjust to a rough new world while working to gain respect from the men who work for him. The two central character are brilliantly drawn. The city boy with a business degree and the hardened stockman compliment each other beautifully. Both men are strong, attractive and interesting enough to carry a full series. Lang Downs Station is introduced for the first time here. I accidentally started with book five, so I found it fascinating to go back in time more than ten years to the initial descriptions of characters who become very important to the station and the series over time. This first book is a testament to Tachna’s ability to write complex characters who grow and develop through the series. I probably wouldn’t give this first book five stars in its own right, though I’d give the series as a whole five stars. It moves slowly as Tachna introduces readers to her outback and the characters who live on Lang Downs. But I’m not sure this book could have moved quicker. Readers need the details and the jargon to immerse themselves in Caine and Macklin’s world. The series definitely gets better from here, but this book starts everything off brilliantly. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. Sarah
