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 lost interest with the hot and cold routine on Macklin's side and then when it finally got around to the sex I more or l...
I liked the concept of this book - who wouldn't root for a guy who leaves everything he knows for what he hopes will be a better life. I didn't like the romance itself. It felt forced and unbelievable at times, as did the homophobes change of heart at the end.
3.5 - that's not a bad rating, I really enjoyed it, there are just oher books I've enjoyed more. I liked the characters, particulalry CAine, i appreciated his attitude. Macklin was good too and I liked the fact that it was set in Australia was a nice change (I used to love a programme called McLeods...
I really wanted to love this book particularly because it was set in Australia. However, although the potential was there, there was something lacking that prevented me from fully escaping into the world of Lang Downs.I think the author did a great job of describing the locations and environment, gi...
