Overview

Ever since Cambridge-bound Colin Lancaster secretly watched stable master Patrick Callahan mastering the groundskeeper, he's longed for Patrick to do the same to him. When Patrick is caught with his pants down and threatened with death, Colin speaks up in his defense, announcing that he, too, is guilty of "the love that dare not speak its name." Soon they're both condemned as convicts and shipped off to the faraway prison colony of Australia. Patrick learned long ago that love is a fairy tale and is determined that no one will scale the wall he's built around his heart. Yet he's inexorably drawn to the charismatic Colin despite his best efforts to keep him at bay. As their journey extends from the cramped and miserable depths of a prison ship to the vast, untamed Australian outback, Colin and Patrick must build new lives for themselves. They'll have to tame each other to find happiness in this wild new land.

This book is the story of Colin and Patrick and how life doesn't always end up the way you plan or imagine.  How one moment can change a person's life in ways that were not even thought possible.  How a virtual death sentence can turn into the best thing that ever happened to you.  How stepping up and doing what's right even at the cost of your own peril.  This story is a beautifully written tale of awakening a love that helps not only yourself but those around you in a time when male/male relationships were not only thought of as immoral but also very illegal.  The Station is so much more than just a gay romance, it's also a story of friendship and finding oneself in a foreign land.

I love historical romance. What I particularly enjoy though, is when the time period or location is unique - it isn’t the typical Regency or Victorian. I found that with The Station. This well-written story is set in the mid 1800’s and involves the slightly older Patrick – the stable master, and young Colin – the son of the wealthy family Patrick works for. Colin develops a crush on Patrick after spying him having sex with a man, and when Patrick is discovered and faces a hanging, Colin confesses he’s a lover of men too to save him. They both end up getting shipped off to Australia into an uncertain future. The story is rich with description and setting. The characters are opposites who definitely attract, but Colin - the more emotionally enthusiastic one - has to work on thawing the standoffish Patrick’s heart. It’s a very sweet love story with some twists and turns that I enjoyed quite a bit. I have to reiterate again, I appreciated the uniqueness of the setting. I don’t know that much of the history of Australia at that time – so I can’t speak to the accuracy – but it was a very interesting tale. I should mention that the romance between these two men is a slow burn. Once things take off, the sex is very hot and I felt their chemistry. Prior to that, there was a bit of the ‘schoolboy crush’ aspect to it. Once they were faced with limited options, they bonded more and I really felt their connection. Overall, if you want a read where you can lose yourself in another era, in a story with a bit of angst and drama, and a couple who are both hot and sweet together – then I would highly recommend The Station. I give it 4 Stars. Reviewed by Michele for Crystal’s Many Reviewers **Copy provided for review**
