As past mixes with present, passion ignites, but sex isn’t the cure-all it once was. Tempers flare, a fistfight ensues as they attempt to resolve a past that seems beyond resolution. Love does have a chance, but it’s no longer the stuff of youth.

Review: I don’t know why it is, but to me a gritty western themed book makes me think to the TV show Deadwood. So in my head this has been like Brokeback Deadwood.
The story is told by Tad, a cowboy who enjoys an active sex life with other like-minded men in Cheyenne, where he calls home. But he has a past and part of that was thinking that he had killed a man. Except that man, Clay, turns up very much alive! Set in the West (Cheyenne for the most part) in 1893, this is a nice, quick story, which is enjoyable to read. There is a little mystery set up, which had me wanting, needing to know why Tad had shot Clay 12 years earlier.
And honestly, it was satisfying to read why and the rest f the conclusion to this hot Western.
