Letters From a Cowboy
When Simon Wood comes to Tamar Ranch, what begins as animosity between him and Chip Henson soon evolves into something very different. They give in to their need, but they’re taking a big risk leaving letters for each other. Soon Simon must choose between leaving the ranch to save Chip’s job or taking an even bigger risk and going back for him.
Review: Back in the 50’s being gay could get you killed. Simon moves from ranch to ranch when things get heated. After leaving his last ranch getting caught with his boss, he was lucky to leave with his hide. He comes to the Tamar ranch and finds he like it. An animosity between him and Chip soon evolve into something much stronger than either has ever had before. This time Simon doesn’t run to save his hide but Chips. How does that work out?
This was a beautifully written, poignant story of love between two men in the 1950’s. There is comradery, lots of action, drama and a beautiful romance. I loved the little letters between the men. This story moved me in so many ways. I will warn ya, once ya start you can’t stop and have a tissue or two handy.
The only issue I had was I was deep into it and bam I turned the page to the epilogue. It ended much too soon, but I loved the end!
If you like historical romance (1950’s, bigotry, cowboys, angst, drama, and some fairly hot man-sex this is definitely for you!
