Two men battle the wilderness—and their desire.
It’s 1793, and Simon Cavendish needs to get to his station at Fort Charlotte, a fur-trading outpost in the untamed Canadian wild. The fort is only accessible by canoe, and there’s just one man daring enough to take him on the perilous, thousand-mile journey from Montreal this late in the summer.
Young Christian Smith, the son of an Ojibwe mother and absent English father, is desperate for money to strike out on his own, so he agrees to take Simon deep into the bush. As they travel endless lakes and rivers, the arduous expedition takes its toll.
Yet the attraction between Simon and Christian, two men from vastly different worlds, grows ever stronger. Locked in a battle against the wilderness and elements, how long can they fight their desire for each other?
Note: This gay historical romance from Keira Andrews features adventure in the wilderness, outdoor sex, and a happy ending.

While this has potential for a great love story, I feel cheated. 50 pages long. Are you kidding me. I would never have bought it if I knew it was so short. It could easily have been a much longer story, but for some reason was compressed into ... THIS. I have read other stories by this author that I really enjoyed, so this was a huge disappointment. If it had been of a decent length of 200 or more pages, it could have been fantastic. The short length of this story should have been revealed!
This is a really great story of love. A lot of thought and details went into this story. Thank you for taking me away on this journey. While reading i felt like i was right there with them. Great job.
Finally a m/m erotic romance that offers something new. This obviously well-researched tale presents two interesting characters, Simon and Christian, and a setting in the wilderness of Canada back in the late 1700s. The details used by Andrews, set the scene remarkably clear for the reader. The adventures of the pair are as interesting and readable as the attraction and personal encounters between them. This is not a long book, about 50 pages on my nook, but I stayed up late to find out how it ends. It is definitely worth your time. I hope Andrews continues the stories of these two men as what it seems like they will face at the end of the book could be just as interesting and fun to read. One more thing - I almost did not select this book to read on my nook as the cover made it seem rather tame and perhaps boring. I guess we're used to hunky bare-chested guys gracing the covers of m/m books. No need in this case though, and I'm glad I gave it a chance.
