    GREAT SERIES!!!

    I was married to a woman for many years before coming out. I can't say enough how refreshing it is to see a movie or read a book that has a love story, drama, or other genre of reading that includes two men instead of the traditional man and woman. This series has grasped me because in each one there is someone struggling and there are role models for them. In real life that doesn't always exist. This author has grasped something that people NEED to read with what they WANT to read. I can't say enough!!!

    Beautiful and Heartwarming Story!

    Life out on the range and within the big cities has many similarities when dealing with your sexual preference of being gay especially when you are first coming out. It's a dog eat dog world and learning to protect one's self is the key to survival. Figuring out, learning, and giving into your feelings is many trails within itself as finding someone who understands you is one in a million chances.
    This smooth and fast paced wonderful story is about a beautiful heartwarming, sweet, and hot romance that develops between Haven and Phillip as they experience true love, friendship, lies and deceit from family members, death, and overcoming hardships of everyday trials. I fell in love with both characters as their emotions came alive throughout the pages.
    Haven is a young cowboy who known he has always been different but was to shamed to be his true self because of the rejection he always received from his own father's ridicule. However when he finds himself attracted to Phillip he decides to act upon his instincts.
    Phillip is an accountant, lost his job from the bad economy but finds refuge from life at his two friends Dakota and Wally's Ranch. Being gay and out of the closet is nothing new to him but when he meets Haven he recognizes the attraction immediately. Though he always dated several guys he never got serious and always looked upon the dates as just a good time and nothing more. Eventually the loneliness crept up on him to the point he was jealous of the happiness all his other gay friends had found. He was ready for something more series and a relationship that would last for a life time and Haven was just the perfect one to change that.
    It was very nice to read about Dakota and Wally, characters from the first book in this series "A Shared Range". The reminder of their personalities just made me fall in love with them all over again with Dakota being the most caring and helping neighbor anyone could ask for and Wally being the best care taker and animal lover on the range.
    The ending was very sweet and as I look back on the story there were several lessons or should I say great insight and advice one can learn from this story. Here is a quote I would like to share as an example.
    "Being gay isn't about what you wear or how you act. It's about who you love."
