In present day, Maxton is good at finding trouble and bad at everything else.
In 1892, Trent Harrington, sheriff of Trinidad, Colorado, lives a respectable but lonely life, devoid of any closeness.
Trying to escape a past that keeps chasing him, Maxton drives south to avoid getting arrested. When his car spins off the road, he is swept up in a desert whirlwind and finds himself in the year 1892. Lost and alone, unused to the laws of the wild west, Maxton gets arrested anyway.
Trent is tasked with escorting Maxton to Trinidad. The request isn’t unusual, but the miscreant is. Maxton draws Trent’s heart out of its shell with his flashing green eyes and lush head of hair. It isn’t right. It isn’t natural. It’s illegal. Yet Trent cannot resist the impetuous young man.
As the two men travel through the vast, empty desert to their destination, will they find in each other the love and companionship they never thought they’d have?
A male/male time travel romance, complete with the scent of desert roses, brilliantly colored sunsets, starlit nights, bitter campfire coffee, growing honesty and trust, and true love across time..
Review: Maxton is Laurie and Zach’s friend who is at a loss since their disappearance. Nothing seems to be right for him as loses his apartment, ends up in trouble with a biker gang and the FBI are looking into him for the disappearance of his two friends. Trying to avoid jail he leaves but gets caught in a fierce wind that transports him to 1892 where lost and alone he ends up in jail anyway.
This is where he meets sheriff Trent, a man who is good and kind when he needs to be. Laurie gets wind that Maxton is in jail and asks Trent to bring him to Trinidad. Along the journey the two men get to know one another better and share intimacy with each other. Afterwards Trent goes back into his shell.
Trent spends a good majority of the book hiding who he is and what he wants. While I agree that people need to work things out in their own time I felt it was too long for a story. But nevertheless he comes to his senses and accepts who he is.
I loved the details of the time period.
