At twenty-five, Hank owns a small parcel of land in Australia’s rural southwest where he supplements his income from the property with seasonal shearing. Hank is a “shearing gun”—an ace shearer able to shear large numbers of sheep in a single day. His own father kicked him out when his sexuality was revealed, and since no one would ever hire a gay shearer, Hank has remained firmly closeted ever since. Elliot is the newbie doctor in town—city-born and somewhat shell-shocked from his transplant to the country. When a football injury brings Hank to Elliot’s attention, an inappropriate sexual glance and the stuttered apology afterward kickstarts their friendship. Romance and love soon blossom, but it’s hard for either of them to hope for anything permanent. As if the constant threat of being caught isn’t enough, Elliot’s contract runs out after only a year.

The Shearing Gun:"Quackle": The best nickname and term of endearment that there ever was.I was not expecting to love this as much as I did. I mean it's about sheep farming and sheep shearing in the middle of nowhere. 'How good could it possibly be?' says I. Awesome it turns out. This book is a feel ...
The Shearing Gun will be known as the book that confirmed for me RENAE KAYE is an auto-buy. Hank is a sheep farmer in the outback. He's also gay and very much in the closet. Elliot is the new doctor in townie they hit it off as friends right away. Hank hang ups are addressed throughout the story. Ka...
Oh I do love me a sweet romance and that is exactly what 'The Shearing Gun' was. It was two men working out how to be together in an environment that they were unsure of but having finally met that one person who made them want the kind of relationship that you build a future on they were each willi...
